Thread: Land Rover Discovery Not Starting?!

    Land Rover Discovery Not Starting?!

    Alright guys,

    A couple days ago my nephew was driving the discovery around the yard and ended up going into a stack of pallets, no visible damage done really other than a little scuff, but now every time I try to start it up it just won't budge, I know it's vague but any thoughts on what it might be?

    Cheers.

    Not sure about the discovery but freelanders have a safety cut out button on passenger side inner wing that stops it from starting discovery may have same thing

    Member Stock here had his Discovery stop starting .I believe he tracked it down to a failed Immobilizer.

    if it's injection they have an impact/inertia cut out sensor, drives the fuel pump, so in the event of an accident, or collision it stops the fuel pump.....would be my first 'port of call' ..... no idea WTF it'd be on there though
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Thank you all for your replies, they're all good suggestions, I'm going to take a look at it again today and keep your suggestions in mind so that I can hopefully troubleshoot it and get to the bottom of it once and for all. It's just been sat in the yard doing nothing so hopefully we can get a bit of life back into her! Cheers all

    Were to buy diesel fuel injectors in the West Midlands?

    Yeah you were right, it's an injector problem, paid to have it diagnosed, does anyone know where I can diesel fuel injectors in or around the West Midlands?

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated!


    Cheers

    Did the guy that did the diagnostics reset the inertia switch as that cuts the fuel of to injectors if it gets a bash
