    I have a 2006 LR3 and the alarm goes off almost daily when the car is locked and unattended. It has been in the shop 3 times and have cannot duplicate nor diagnose the problem. It is a huge anoyance.

    My 2007 LR3 alarm goes off about 1 to 2X per day for absolutely no reason. I don't see any warnings on the LCD screen. I just need to hit the key button to stop it. It's super annoying. I left it with the Land Rover dealer for a night. They said if they can't duplicate the problem, they can't fix it. They couldn't.

    I have exactly the same problem as LR3robb. Am about to go pick up my LR3 which has been at the dealer for 5 days now, and of course, the alarm never went off while it was there. Help!

    Same problem with a 2006 LR3. Alarm randomly goes off. If I roll the car backwards or forwards just a bit it seems to help the problem for that particular instance, which leads me to think that it's a sensor issue. Is there a way to adjust the sensor on these?

Check the hood switch, if you see the bonnet open message on the infomation centre, once again hood switch will do this. inexpensive fix as long as you tell the dealer what to do, otherwise nice diagnostic charge.

After replaceing park brake and rear pads on my 2006 landrover lr3 about 10 days later the "check brake pads" message apeard on my DIC. Is there away to erease the code. The yellow warning lamp...

As you know you can now buy a cheap scanner at advance auto that will erase codes...
I would double check my work..It could be a misadjusted ABS sensor or contaminated.
I am also a tech...former GM but now I am level 2 Chrysler.
I also have a landrover freelander and I hate it...Most of these have the worst wiring system in the world.It could just be a wiring issue that landrover themselves have done wrong when they built it.
But I myself would disconnect the negative cable for 30 seconds and this will definitley erase the codes.....Normally the warning light will cut itself off after going at least 6 miles per hour after you perform the repairs but it seems it didnt come on until after you already done the repairs....So I guess it was late telling you...This is what I meant by their wiring being poorly done..
So I would check my work just to be sure then disconnect battery.....If it comes back on the only thing you can do is change the sensor...Volvo is bad for the same problem.
.............hope this helps...........................Metalpoet............PS.Make sure fluid level is correct.

Hi, i have a door lock problem with a landrover discovery 1998. a) when i use the remote control the locks are clicking b) then the alarm sounds twice c) and all levers are popping up. d) situation...

It sounds like you have a problem with one of the door or bonnet switches. It acts that way when it thinks there is a door or the bonnet is open. Check all the switches for good contact.

Where is the bonnet closed sensor on the landrover discovery 3, my horn beeps when locking car and an error message says bonnet open. I'm away in Germany for a month which isn't much help.Any advice on...

After more thorough search in better light and removing grill etc. I found the bonnet sensor is underneath the RIGHT HAND bonnet latch (opposite side to battery for RH Drive models). there is a mini plug,with 2 contacts accessible from engine side without removing the grill, release plug latch to remove plug and short out the two pins of the plug then tape to secure. I can now lock the car without the horn blowing. As for replacing the actual switch, that will be another small job but when I return to the UK.

Fuel tank

Not really. If you can find the leak.Run the tank down till it's about half full.Take some sand paper and sand the area where the whole is.Then take you some JB Weld and repair it,I've did it with great success.I've not had a problem with it leaking but make sure you sand it really good and take some carbureator and choke spray and clean it after you finish sanding it.
