Something you can try, I don't know if it works for your type of vehicle, turn the ignition on, but try to start it, let it set for ten minutes, turn the ignition off, then try to restart it. you may have to do this procedure three times. on for ten off, on for ten off, on for ten off, do not take the key out of the ignition during this procedure. your security has to relearn the key

I think that your transfer case is not engaged all of the way. Try shifting into 4wd low and 4wd high and see if the problem is solved.

If you need more assistance, post a comment and I will get back to you.

Check the battery voltage. At rest it should be 12 to 13 volts.
Cranking should not drop below 10 to 10.5 volts.

Rover 800 handbrake

The rear calipers work as the handbrake as well. The solution is (with the engine running and in park/neutral) pump the brake pedal at the same time as pulling up and releasing the handbrake lever.You may have to do this quite a few times until the caliper resets its self. You will notice the handbrake lever getting firmer as the calipers reset and adjust.

1988 Sterling 825 SL thoughts

In over 5 years and 50,000 miles of driving, these are the only things that ever went wrong on the car: * Main electrical relay went out at 95,000 miles -- quick repair, $100 Acura part. * Replaced radiator and ball joints at 120,000 miles -- cost about $500 for both. * Sunroof stopped working at 130,000 miles, never did fix that. * Instrument cluster stopped working, replaced them at 140,000 miles with a good used one, about $200 including labor. The Sterling 825/827 Series is one of the most underrated and misunderstood cars ever made. I had this car for 5 years, and it was solid, classy and dependable. On the outside it just kind of looks like a car -- nothing all that unusual. It's inside that this car is really special. The interior is absolutely beautiful, all Connolly leather, Wilton carpeting and real wood trim. These are all the same materials used by Rolls Royce. All the lines in the interior are crisp and tasteful, a beautiful blend of modern and classic. And the 8-speaker sound system is the best in any car I've ever owned (and I've owned many). You can tell that this car cost a lot to build. Since the engine, transmission, body frame, and most of the drivetrain components are identical to the Acura Legend, many parts are easy to find, and you can take it to a knowledgeable Honda/Acura mechanic in many cases.
