i hate to say it, but you are gonna have to open the hood in the confined area and try to work with the area you have or call in whatever autoclub you use / the dealer and make it their problem.

actually you can buy a jump box that plugs into your cig. lighter and jump it that way. my jump box has the set up to do it that way. but check your owners manual to see if the car will accept that without damage.

Pull hard on the steering wheel to the left and the steering wheel lock mechanism should release. I mean pull hard to left because shift interlock is froze if you cannot get it this way you will need a pro to help! Good Luck Mate.

Hi Adam,

Bring your vehicle to an auto parts or battery store. Ask if they could perform a 'Load Check' on your battery. This not only checks the voltage, but also the amps, as if it were under the load of turning your engine.

It takes a few seconds and the results are pass or fail. Fail means it's time for a new battery. Pass means we need to look elsewhere.

Comment back the results.

Hope you find this to be very helpful
Mike

Sounds like something is overheating then and possibly a sensor. Not familiar with Rovers but might be a problem with the CAS and/or CPS which tells the ECU the motor is running and when to fire. Also maybe the IAC is bad and when you go from throttle to idle it can't control it and allows it to die.

2012 land rover lr2 with dead battery. how do i get into neutral so I can get it to somewhere I can jump it


Check your owners manual. I am not familiar with your exact vehicle, but most all come with an shift interlock override that will allow you to shift out of park without power.

My transfer case is stuck in neutral. the car will not shift and when I put the car back in park it makes a grinding sound. how do I reset my transfer case?


Make sure the Rover is on level ground. With the key on and engine off and the transmission in neutral or park, try to reset.

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

Did the tow company put a fuse in position 37 of the glovebox fusebox? This puts the transfer case into Transfer Neutral for towing. Refer to the Owner's Manual under Emergency Information ->Vehicle Recovery->Towing for Recovery

Jump start does what? Do you have dash lights? horn etc. Trying to figure out if the battery power is getting anywhere. The battery could be dead again from parasitic drain. The cables could be damaged from corrosion. The neutral switch could be defective of loose.

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

This also happens when the battery is dead. If you can at least wiggle the steering wheel about 20° in either direction then the steering lock isn't the problem. (Although if you wiggle it too much it might be!)

Battery keeps going dead.


obviously there is an abnormal drain on the vehicles electrical system. Examples of this are a glove box or conso;e light staying even though you closed it, is there a reading or compartment light on ? Anybody that just says "you need a battery without ALSO testing the electrical system for integrity is not helping,
