Question about Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

Can´t open the rear tail gate/door. Have tried the emergency opening option (holding down the 2 lock buttons in the car) but that didn´t work either. When pressing the rear door "handle" to open the electric motor makes the normal operating buzz sound but the catch doesn´t connect it seems, so the door stays shut !

    HI, Are you sure it´s the same model - T3 2005, as there aren´t the 4 philips screws but 3 hexagonal bolts. The "window" you refer to is that the fixed glass section, top panel of the door ?
    Thanks,Rob Jones.

If you squeese the handle put your head near the badge you should hear one micro switch operating the window and a noise like well hard to explain but its a solenoid operating the rear latch after the window drops, you can get the inside panel off bit hard with door locked; at bottom of door panel is four philips screws take them out and then the panel pulls from the bottom up,cut round water shredder and you can operate latch manually to get it open then check to see if micro switch in handle is working its not a rear wiper fault or window fault as they work, the relay for the rear door latch and the rear window are behind the offside rear quarter panel 3 connectors for rear door electrics, the relays are up by the seat at top,its not normally a relay issue either rear door latch solenoid or micro switch in back handle but rule out the handle as window works.

Disconect battery and wait 5 min and try again it worked on mine.

Hope helps.

My rear tail gate latch is locked open.How do I unlock this latch so I can close my tail gate


more likely than not the latch has closed some how if you have some one hold the the handle to open the tailgate you can open the latch by hand with a screw driver if your not sure what it should look like look at another door latch in the open position very simple to do and you cant hurt anything doing it this way

Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

Cannot open rear lift gate I need to access the taillights. Do I need to go through the interior panel?


Make sure you unlock the locks then try pressing down and holding in the plastic that surrounds the tail gate handle while pulling on the handle at the same time. The hatch should open. I've seen this same problem on a few Cherokees.

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate


Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.
