Youll have to go to a rover dealer, r u sure its not just the battery. Does it turn over, do you have fuel at the plugs??

Wont start. Battery is fully charged.

hi, now this could be down to one of two things now the first and most likely would be that the starter motor has packed up so this would need replacing.

Now the other problem you could have is with the imobiliser now the problem you have with this is their is nothing you can do yourself to even check this it has to go to a garage and go on a diagnostics check so as they can find out if the imobiliser is working or not.
The main cause for the imobiliser not working is going to be that the battery is flat in the key fob witch controls the central locking if this is flat then your car wont start.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

The headgasket went on my freeland now it wont start

Having experience of 'K' series engines I would guess the engine timing is incorrect, I have seen this problem when the camshaft gears have been installed 180 degrees out. You need to check the Pulley's have been correctly installed otherwise all the engine valves will open at once giving you no compression.

Hi, I'm interested in buying a 1985 Land Rover Defender V8.Owner says the clutch is slipping when engine is warm. What is required to fix this and what would approximate cost be?

aftermarket clutch kits for this vehicle run $500-750 and about the same for labor to remove transmission and service clutch and plate...allow $1500 for this repair.Dealer price for parts and labor could double this estimate...good luck

Rover 216 wont start

unlock your car with the key, put the key in the ignition switch, remove one of the battery terminals now switch the ignition to the running position then put the battery terminal back on this will bypass the rovers immobiliser and alarm system

Sounds like the ECU ...( Electrical Control Box) under the seat, I had one that did just the same 2 yrs back.

My escort 1.8 si wont start i think maybe imobiliser problem all lights come on but engine dosnt turn over can anyone help?

I can't remember exactly off the top of my head, but there's a fuel shut-off valve/switch in the escorts that could be the problem. Should be something about it in the manual, plus mine has a little sticker with information about it under the drivers side sunshield (sorry, would have more complete info but I don't have my car with me right now)

Rover 216 coupe

The honda engine in the rover suffered from the amplifier module in the distributor going faulty. Remove dist cap ans rotor arm, underneath you will see a small square box with 5 wires onto it, if i remember, its held in with 2 screws. remove this and replace with new .
