OWNER’S HANDBOOK

This handbook together with the Passport to Service, provides all the information that you will need to derive maximum pleasure from owning and driving your new Range Rover.

For convenience, the handbook is divided into sections, each dealing with a particular aspect of driving or caring for the vehicle. Sections are listed on the contents page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and to get to know your Range Rover as soon as you possibly can. The more you understand before you drive, the greater the satisfaction when you are seated behind the steering wheel.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The specification of each vehicle will vary according to territorial requirements and also from model to model within the vehicle range. Some of the information published in this handbook therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

Introduction

PASSPORT TO SERVICE

Your new Range Rover is covered by the following warranties:

Land Rover New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Land Rover Corrosion Perforation Limited Warranty

Land Rover Vehicle Emission Control System Warranty (U.S.A.)

Land Rover U.S. Emissions Performance Warranty

Detailed information on these warranties can be found in the Passport to Service included in your literature pack. The Passport to Service also contains important vehicle identification information and useful consumer advice.

Most important of all, however, is the section on maintenance. This outlines the servicing requirements for your Range Rover and also incorporates the service record slips, which the retailer should sign and stamp to certify that routine services have been carried out at the recommended intervals.

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to notifying Land Rover North America Inc.

If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.

However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your retailer or Land Rover North America.

To contact NHTSA, you may call the Auto Safety HOTLINE toll free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 202-366-0123 in the Washington, D.C. area) or write to NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the HOTLINE.

Introduction

SAFETY WARNINGS

WARNING

Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate a procedure which must be followed precisely care in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury or serious damage to the vehicle.

WARNING

Your Range Rover has a higher ground clearance and hence a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars, to enable the vehicle to perform in a wide variety of off-road applications. An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the road allowing you to anticipate problems. The Range Rover is not designed for cornering at the same speed as conventional passenger cars any more than a low slung sports car is designed to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvres. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the Range Rover correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle roll-over. For important safety information, be sure to read the "on-road" and "off-road" driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING

WARNING

Engine exhaust, some of its constituents and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Introduction

VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION

If you need to communicate with a Land Rover retailer, you may be asked to quote the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

The VIN and other information concerning your vehicle can be found on the certification label affixed to the lock face of the front left-hand door, where shown.

In addition, the Federal VIN plate is mounted to the vehicle body in such a position that it is visible from the outside through the bottom corner of the windscreen on the driver’s side.

WARNING

DO NOT exceed gross weight or axle loads described on the vehicle certification identification label. Exceeding allowable vehicle and axle loads will increase the risk of tyre and suspension failure, increase vehicle brake stopping distance and adversely affect vehicle handling and stability which may result in a crash or rollover.

18

Introduction

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS whilst it may be difficult to deter the ’professional’ car thief, the majority of thefts are carried out by unskilled opportunists.

Therefore, take vehicle security very seriously and ALWAYS adopt this simple ’four point’ drill whenever you leave your vehicle - even for just a few minutes:

1.Fully close all the windows (and the sunroof).

2.Remove your valuable belongings (or hide them out of sight).

3.Remove the starter key.

4.Superlock the vehicle using the remote handset.

Thieves are attracted by ’vulnerable’ vehicles. Even if you have followed the ’four point’ drill, there is still much you can do to make your vehicle a less inviting target.

BE SAFE - NOT SORRY!

Park where your vehicle can be easily seen by householders and passers-by.

At night, park in well lit areas and avoid deserted or dimly-lit side streets.

NEVER leave the keys in the vehicle.

Do not keep important documents (or spare keys) in the vehicle - these are a real bonus for the thief.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Remember the breakdown safety code

If a breakdown occurs whilst travelling:-

Wherever possible, consistent with safety and traffic conditions, the vehicle should be moved off the main thoroughfare, preferably onto the shoulder as far as possible. If a breakdown occurs on a freeway, pull well over to the inside of the hard shoulder.

Switch on hazard lights.

If possible, position the warning triangle (located on the underside of the loadspace floor panel - see

’Warning triangle’) or a flashing amber light at an appropriate distance from the vehicle to warn other traffic of the breakdown (note the legal requirements of some areas).

Consider evacuating passengers through the doors facing away from the traffic, to a safe area away from the vehicle as a precaution in case your Range Rover is struck by another vehicle.

Security Card

The security card, supplied with the literature pack, contains important emergency information. It is ESSENTIAL that you keep the card safe from theft and ensure that it is passed to the new owner if you sell the vehicle.

Key number: This is the number of the starter/door key - essential if you ever need to obtain a replacement.

VIN (vehicle identification number): This identity number is unique to your vehicle and is essential proof of its specification. The number can also be found in various locations around the vehicle (see ’Vehicle Identification’ in Section 1).

Radio security code number: Your vehicle is delivered with the security code disabled. If you wish to have it actuated see your Land Rover retailer.

CAUTION

Never leave the security card inside the vehicle when it is unattended.

23

Locks & alarm

Your vehicle is fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm system. In order to ensure maximum security, you are advised to gain a full understanding of the system by thoroughly reading this section of the handbook.

LOCKING THE VEHICLE AND ARMING THE

ALARM

You have been supplied with two handset/keys (numbered 1 and 2). Whilst both are identical in operation, they transmit two different sets of information (see ’Key activated memory seats’). Replacement handsets are only available from a Land Rover retailer. Up to two further handsets (3 and 4) can also be obtained.

There are four methods for securing your vehicle:

1.’Superlocking’ using the handset - (recommended high security method).

2.’Superlocking’ using the key.

3.Locking using the handset.

4.Locking using the key.

FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY, ALWAYS ’SUPERLOCK’ THE VEHICLE USING THE HANDSET

(except when the vehicle is to be locked with passengers or animals inside).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Emergency keys

In addition to the two handsets, you have also been supplied with two separate keys. These keys perform the same functions as the key part of the handset and are intended for emergency use only. DO NOT keep the keys inside the vehicle.

The handset

The radio remote handset has three buttons (described below). By pressing the appropriate button, the handset can be used either as a conventional key, or as a remote handset to either lock or ’superlock’ the vehicle.

1. Key release button.

Press to release the key, which can then be used as a conventional key to operate the starter switch, glovebox and door locks.

24

Locks & alarm

2. Lock button (padlock symbol)

press once to lock.

press twice to ’superlock’.

3. Unlock button

press once to unlock.

press and hold to operate the ’Key activated memory seats’ facility (see ’Key activated memory seats’).

Once the security system is armed, the following features are activated:

The central locking system locks all the doors and the tailgate.

The perimetric alarm (protecting the doors, hood and tailgate) is armed.

If ’handset superlocking’ is activated, the volumetric alarm is also armed (a sensor inside the passenger compartment monitors the interior space and activates the alarm if an intrusion into the passenger compartment is detected).

The volumetric sensor will enter a self-check mode each time you turn the starter switch off. It will remain active for 60 seconds, or until:

1.The driver’s door is opened and closed.

2.The vehicle is locked with the handset or key.

NOTE: If the sensor fails its self-check five times consecutively, only the ’perimetric’ elements of the security system will be active (doors, hood and tailgate). Any attempt to ’superlock’ with the handset will result in ’ALARM FAULT’ being displayed on the message centre and a mislock occurring (see ’Mislock’). Seek qualified assistance to rectify the fault.

NOTE: The handset complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

1.This device may not cause harmful interference.

2.This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This applies to both alarm receivers and handset transmitter.

CAUTION

Any changes or modifications to the transmitter not expressly approved by the manufacturer or Land Rover North America could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

25

Locks & alarm

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

After locking the vehicle, the RED indicator light on the top of the fascia, close to the windscreen (arrowed in illustration) flashes rapidly for ten seconds to confirm that the security system has been successfully armed. After ten seconds, the indicator light adjusts to a slower frequency, and then continues to flash as an anti-theft deterrent until such time as the security system is disarmed.

If, whilst operating the handset (or key), the alarm sounds, this indicates that one of the doors, the hood or the tailgate is not properly closed (the message centre display will confirm which aperture is not secure).

Although the handset can be successfully operated from a significant distance from the vehicle, when locking it is wise to be close enough to visually confirm that the door locking buttons have dropped into place and that the indicator light confirms a successful lock.

NOTE: Occasional atmospheric conditions can significantly reduce the effective range of handset operation. If this occurs, operate the handset closer to the vehicle. In the most extreme cases, it may be necessary to touch the handset against the radio aerial ’fired’ onto one of the rear side windows.

If the message centre displays ’KEY BATTERY LOW’, this indicates that the handset batteries need replacing (see ’Handset batteries’).

SUPERLOCKING

If the vehicle is ’superlocked’ (with either the handset, or the key), the doors CANNOT be unlocked or opened from inside the vehicle.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

For the reason given above, DO NOT superlock the vehicle with passengers inside.

’Superlocking’ using the handset:

Press and release the ’lock’ button (1) on the handset twice (within 11/2 seconds). After 15 seconds you will hear ’superlocking’ engage.

If any door, the hood or tailgate is left open, a mislock will occur (see ’Mislock’).

If a window or sunroof is open, superlocking will engage immediately, however volumetric protection will not be activated.

To unlock:

Press and release the ’unlock’ button (2) on the handset once.

If the handset is inoperative, the vehicle can be unlocked by using the key in the driver’s door lock.

26

Locks & alarm

’Superlocking’ using the key:

Wherever possible the handset MUST be used to ’superlock’ the vehicle. However, if the handset is inoperative, the key can be used as follows:

Turn the key in the driver’s door towards the rear of the vehicle (and release) twice within 11/2 seconds.

NOTE: ’Superlocking’ the vehicle using the key will provide perimetric protection only - volumetric protection (protection of the interior space inside the vehicle) WILL NOT BE ACTIVE! If any door, the hood, or the tailgate is left open, a mislock will occur (see ’Mislock’).

To unlock:

Wherever possible use the handset to unlock the vehicle - press and release the ’unlock’ button.

If necessary, the key can also be used to unlock a ’superlocked’ vehicle.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

If unattended passengers are to be left in the vehicle, it is recommended that they should lock the vehicle from inside by pressing down the driver’s door sill button.

If animals are to be left in the vehicle, volumetric protection MUST NOT be activated - any movement inside the vehicle could trigger the alarm.

NEVER leave children or animals unattended in the vehicle!

WARNING

NEVER ’superlock’ the vehicle if passengers are to be left inside - ’superlocking’ prevents door locks from being operated from INSIDE as well as outside the vehicle!

NOTE: If the handset ’lock’ button or the door key are operated once, the central locking will be activated, but the alarm will only be in ’perimetric’ mode and the doors and locks CAN be opened from the inside. ALWAYS, where possible secure the vehicle by ’superlocking’.

’Sill’ locking

To operate the central locking from inside the vehicle, push down either front door sill button.

The security system will NOT be armed.

NOTE: ’Sill’ locking is NOT possible from outside the vehicle.

Locks & alarm

MISLOCK

A mislock will occur if:

A door, hood or tailgate are left open.

The key is left in the starter switch.

An incomplete ’all close’ is attempted. The message centre will indicate the cause of a mislock e.g. ’SUNROOF BLOCKED’.

If a mislock occurs, a warning ’bleep’ will sound in which case you should unlock the vehicle, rectify the cause of the mislock and then re-lock the vehicle.

’ALL CLOSE’ FEATURE

The key activated ’all close’ feature enables you to use the key to close the windows and sunroof at the same time as you secure the vehicle.

To operate:

1.Ensure the doors, hood and tailgate are properly closed.

2.Turn and hold the key in the ’lock’ position (turn twice and hold on the second turn if ’Superlocking’).

The doors and tailgate will lock and the windows, followed by the sunroof will close.

NOTE: If a window or the sunroof detects an obstruction, a mislock occurs and the locking sequence will stop. Remove the obstruction before trying to use the ’all close’ feature again.

KEY ACTIVATED MEMORY SEATS

This feature enables the handsets to be used to recall the pre-set electric seat/mirror positions when you UNLOCK the door. The two handsets are separately identified by different labels and by grey and black battery covers - key 1 corresponds to driver’s seat memory 1, and key 2 to seat memory 2 (see

’Seats’).

NOTE: If additional handset/keys have been obtained (key 3 & key 4), they are not linked to the memory seat system.

Press and hold the ’unlock’ button on the handset for 11/2 seconds (the indicator light on the handset flashes rapidly), and then release. The driver’s seat and both mirrors will move to the positions programmed into the relevant seat memory.

NOTE: This feature will only operate if volumetric protection was activated when the vehicle was locked (ie. by ’superlocking’ using the handset).

It will not function if the alarm system has already been triggered since it was last set, and will be cancelled if a door is opened, or if the vehicle is relocked.
