Question about 1998 Land Rover Range Rover

Problems with our recently purchased used Range Rover

We recently purchased a 1998 Range Rover, 4.6L V8. During the test drive every thing worked fine. Since buying it, it is having several problems which seem electrically related. The fuse box in the passenger seat keeps blowing the 30 amp fuse in slot #F2 as soon as it is put in. The passenger seat will not adjust. The rear wiper comes on when setting the lock with one remote. The EAS and Fuse 10 failure message continues to display in the dash board center. The radio is locked and will not reset with the 3 second pressing of button #4 as described in the manual. Any advise would be most welcome as we will be taking this vehicle overseas shortly.

What causes the windshield wipers and the center locking system to stop work at the same time in a 2004 range rover


These tow accessories are controlled by a centralized electronic module referred to as the BCM (body control module), it has self test capabilities and it can run a self test of its functions and report in the form of codes what problems it sees during its own test. You need a special scanner to tap into the test mode, so the dealer needs to do the test. It of course is best if the problem is occurring when the dealer testes the system or you will get it back with a note of NPF, no problem found.

Range Rover Sport Pinion and introduction


This new five-passenger premium sport-utility vehicle filled a price gap between Land Rover's LR3 and its ultraluxury Range Rover models. In fact, the all-wheel-drive Range Rover Sport was smaller than either, designed to compete with "high-performance" SUVs such as V8 versions of the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne, as well as Cadillac's SRX. Based on the seven-passenger LR3's body-on-frame structure, the Range Rover Sport came as the HSE model with a 300-horsepower, 4.4-liter V8, and in Supercharged trim with a 390-horsepower, 4.2-liter V8. Both engines were sourced from Jaguar, which was owned by Land Rover's parent company, Ford. A six-speed automatic with manual shift gate was the sole transmission. All-wheel drive with low-range gearing was standard, and included Land Rover's Terrain Response system, designed to automatically tailor AWD performance to specific off-road conditions. Also included were a height-adjustable air suspension, antiskid/traction control, and antilock four-wheel disc brakes. The Supercharged model came with 20-inch wheels and Brembo-brand front brakes. On the HSE, 19-inch tires were standard and 20-inch optional. Both models contained front side airbags, head-protecting curtain side airbags, and a navigation system. Standard on the Supercharged model and available for the HSE were wood interior trim, heated seats, and Land Rover's Dynamic Response suspension system, designed to counteract body lean in turns. Satellite radio, wireless cell phone link capability, and rear DVD entertainment were options. Adaptive cruise control was available for the Supercharged edition.
