Question about Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

The car had been standing off for 8 weeks. The battery got drained. Hence it won't start. Got battery changed. All dash lights come on, fuel pump can be heard working. The car turns but does not start. Is there any way to reset EMC( engine management unit) or could it be car immobiliser? Any advise is appreciated. This car is currently in Tanzania. They don't have LR experts. Any advise given will be passed over. Thanks guys

You failed to mention what model so I'll give my best shot. On most models on right side (passenger side is a fuel reset switch mounted on firewall) Before attempting to start - press rubber button on top. Uf that doesn't work - have them download this (Rave manuals - River Bible) - http://www.landroverresource.com/

Kangoo van 17dci laying for 8 weeks and now wont start


when you say won go do you mean that there is no power at all,( flat battery,) there is power only lights in the dash? First of all check whether you do have powerful Battery for a crank start. If not then ask for a help from a qualified electrician to jump start it by means of a strong battery and leads. 8 weeks it is a long time for a battery to drop power down possible completely dead if the battery is old.

It won't start


Check the fuel pressure by spraying starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, if it starts and dies then you need a new fuel pump most likely. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. Make sure you don't have a Security light on in the dash as that is a whole different issue and also causes the fuel pump not to run and hence no fuel pressure, that is a theft lock our.

Ran completely out of gas last week - put gas in - car started fine- ran a little rough and idled rough. Now 10 days later MIL light on in dash and perform service message. Won't go out after several


have the fuel filter changed and have the computer checked for codes incase something else is going on and they can be cleared to turn off the light.any dirt in the lines should be out of them by now.its possible that there is dirt in the injectors and a fuel system service should be done to clean them which is a recomended service on all cars anyways.you can have the fuel pressure checked while its in the shop to make sure the pressure is within specs.

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy. Cranks, but won`t start. Fuel is full. Engine stopped while driving. Battery light came on. Any suggestions?


the battery indicator light usually comes on after a lose of power. Sounds to me like either bad gas, clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. Easiest way to check this is have someone turn the key while you stand at rear side of vehicle and listen for the whinning noise a functioning fuel pump makes as it pressurizes the system.

P.S you dont have to start vehicle to check pump. only requires turning the key to the on position. Good Luck

Why is the fuel relay buzzing and car won't start? the dash lights are flickering on and off, and the relay buzzes for like 3-5 seconds, and the startes just keeps trying to turn over the engine. it...


sounds like originally your alternator is over charging causing dash lights to come on and flicker while driving then battery is flat(low) causing problem when starting
jump start engine, check alternator charge rate, and get battery recharged and then checked(load tested)

Trouble starting the car


You most likely have a problem with the check valve of the fuel pump,this allows the fuel to drain back to the tank, hence the long start times. The fuel pump is in te tank, I suggest you replace it.
