Question about Land Rover Range Rover
You need to have your mechanic flush and refill your system because the do it yourself kits do not vaccuum the system to a negative pressure or add the proper oil to the lines.

This recently happened to my mustang and I found a broken vacuum line that connected to a "vaccum block". I'm not sure of the name but if you follow the vacuum line from the master cylinder it will lead ya right to it!

You first should find out if this is correct behaviour, because most cars after 1982 have an electronic fan which is actuated according to the temp guage in your cooling system, so even if your ignition is off, your fan still works to cool the motor (although they are mostly japanese cars that do this).

hi, this is a long shot so dont give me negative if no joy.
on the p38 they suffer from a bad electronic selector.
now, i do not have a clue what gear box or transfer you have.
any way if you look at your transfer, beside where the prop comes out, is ther like a window wiper motor with 6 wires.
if so they get stuck, rust or dirt etc.
have you checked your fuses, alos i would add. again not sure on your model.
in the fuse box there is a blank fuse, when inserted it shifts it to neutral.
the dealers wont tell you where it is.
have you put any fuses in etc, i did this 5 year ago, a p38 was jump started, leads wrong way.
i got a call as the aa did not want to help anymore. aa had a hand full of fuses out, i stuck in were contacts were. after new ecu had no drive.
you are sure its not a gearbox fault, get back to me if not sure, i can tell you how to test this.

do a pressure test. You may have lost freon to the point where it will not let the compressor come on. If you do not have any gages or access to a gage, buy one of the cans of freon that has the low pressure gage attached. Make sure you get the one that has 134A with sealer. The pressure should be about 100psi not running and go down to about 60 when it is running. IF you have a slow leak and the system is low, the compressor will not come on. If you get very low or no pressure when you hook up the can, don't waste your money, have the system checked for the leak. You must vacuum the system down to 30 inches of vacuum before refilling if it is empty, and it does not good to fill it if it is just going to come back out.
Hope this helps
