Owner’s Handbook

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

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

IMPORTANT

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.

Land Rover operates a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserves the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the retailer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the retailer.

Introduction

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.

AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE

To contact NHTSA, you may either 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.

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. In addition, certain fluids contained in vehicles and certain products of component wear contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

WARNING

Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wash hands after handling.

BEFORE YOU DRIVE

Your Range Rover has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher center 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 vehicle 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 manoeuvers. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the Range Rover correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover. For important safety information, be sure to read the ‘On-Road’ and ‘Off-Road’ driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

Introduction

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

While 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.

IN AN EMERGENCY

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Remember the breakdown safety code

If a breakdown occurs while travelling:

Wherever possible, consistent with road 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 motorway, pull well over to the inside of the hard shoulder.

Switch on hazard lights.

If possible, position a 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 traffic, to a safe area away from the vehicle as a precaution in case your Range Rover is accidentally struck by another vehicle.

Locks & Alarm

KEYS AND HANDSETS

You have been supplied with two remote handsets with integral keys which operate all locks and an emergency key, designed to fit into a wallet or purse. The emergency key can be used to open the doors only and has no remote functionality.

NOTE: The emergency key should not be used for extended periods of time.

The keys supplied with your vehicle are programmed to your security system - they CANNOT be re-programmed and the engine cannot be started without a key programmed to your vehicle. If a key is lost or broken, a replacement can only be obtained from a Land Rover retailer.

NOTE: Land Rover retailers do not stock spare keys, time has to be allowed for replacements to be programmed to your security system and then delivered to the retailer.

If you lose a key, contact your Land Rover retailer; a key reported lost will be deactivated. If the key is recovered, your retailer can have it reactivated.

NOTE: Keep the Security card, emergency key and spare handset key in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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

This device may not cause harmful interference.

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

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

Transmitter FCC ID: N5FVALTX3

Receiver FCC ID: N5VALTR3

H4274

Your vehicle is fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm and engine immobilisation system. There are also a number of additional security features, some of which are selectable options and some are standard features of the vehicle. In order to ensure maximum security and operating convenience, you are strongly advised to gain a full understanding of the features and alternatives available, by thoroughly reading this section of the handbook.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY ALWAYS SUPERLOCK THE VEHICLE (except when passengers are to be left inside, in which case they must lock the vehicle using the interior locking switch).

If it is necessary to leave a window or sunroof open, lock the vehicle by pressing the lock button (or turning the key) twice.

H4273

While it is not necessary to point the handset at the vehicle, the handset must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed. Note that the operating range may vary depending upon handset battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control. From a security point of view, it may not be wise to unlock unless you are in close proximity to the vehicle.

Locks & Alarm

Handset buttons

The three buttons on the handset are used as follows:

1.Lock button: Press to superlock all doors and to activate the perimetric alarm and interior space protection and activate the tilt sensor (see ‘Superlocking’, page 26 and ‘Tilt Sensor’, page 26).

Press twice to superlock all doors and activate the perimetric alarm, but NOT activate interior space protection and tilt sensor.

Press and hold to activate the convenience locking facility (see ‘Convenience locking/unlocking*’, page 30).

2.Unlock button: Press once to disarm the alarm and unlock the driver’s door. Press again to unlock the remaining doors (see

‘Single point entry’, page 27).

Press once to activate the memory seats, mirrors and steering column settings (see

‘DRIVER’S SEAT MEMORY FACILITY*’, page 41). This will also activate the convenience unlocking facility (see

‘Convenience locking/unlocking*’, page 30).

3.Tailgate button: Press to unlock the tailgate and to disarm the interior space protection. All other apertures remain locked and the perimetric protection on the other apertures remains armed.

Press and hold to activate the panic alarm*.

4.Handset indicator light: Flashes once for each press of any handset button, as confirmation of operation.

Locking

Shut all doors, hood and tailgate, then press the lock (Land Rover) button once or turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the rear of the vehicle once:

all doors are superlocked (see

‘Superlocking’, page 26)

engine immobilised

perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors, hood and taildoor)

interior space protection activated

tilt sensor activated

The direction indicator lights flash once and the anti-theft alarm indicator light (below the rear-view mirror) starts to flash to confirm that the vehicle is secure.

25

Locks & Alarm

Unlocking with the remote handset

Press the unlock (arrow) button once to disarm the alarm and unlock the driver's door only (see ‘Single point entry’,

page 27).

Press the unlock button twice to disarm the alarm and unlock ALL the doors.

In either case, the interior lights illuminate and the direction indicators flash twice.

Unlocking with the key

After a handset lock:

Turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the front of the vehicle to unlock the driver’s door - the alarm will sound when the door is opened. Unlocking the door using the key will not disarm the alarm - press the unlock button on the handset, or turn the starter switch to position ‘II’, to disarm the alarm.

After a key lock:

Turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the front of the vehicle to unlock the driver’s door and disarm the alarm. Turn the key a second time to unlock the other doors.

Superlocking

WARNING

For safety, NEVER use Superlocking if passengers are to remain inside the vehicle - in an emergency they would not be able to escape. Also, any movement from within the vehicle would activate the alarm, if interior space protection has been activated.

Superlocking is activated automatically whenever the vehicle is locked using either the handset or the key.

Superlocking immobilises the interior door handles, thereby preventing an intruder from gaining entry by smashing a window and reaching inside the vehicle to operate the door handles.

If superlocking is required, but NOT interior space protection, press the lock button twice within 10 seconds (or turn the key towards the rear of the vehicle twice within the same time period).

Tilt Sensor

Your vehicle is fitted with a tilt sensor which activates the alarm if the vehicle is tilted fore and aft, or side to side, after it has been superlocked.

The alarm will sound if theft is attempted by hoisting onto another vehicle or if a side is lifted to attempt wheel removal.

If you wish to have the doors locked but the tilt sensor disabled (eg. when aboard a ferry or having the vehicle transported on a recovery truck) press the lock button twice within

10 seconds (or turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the rear of the vehicle twice within 10 seconds).

Partial arming

If the driver’s door is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, all closed doors will lock, but the driver’s door will not. If the driver’s door is subsequently closed, the locking procedure must be repeated to lock the driver’s door.

26

Locks & Alarm

If a passenger door or other aperture is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the ‘partial arming’ attributes of the security system will enable as much of the system to be armed as possible (all fully closed door, hood or tailgate apertures will be protected, but an open door will not!). As soon as the open aperture is closed, the system will automatically revert to an armed state, with interior space protection activating 30 seconds after all apertures are closed.

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

H3920

The light provides information about the status of the alarm system, as follows:

When the alarm is armed:

The light flashes at a slow frequency and continues to flash as an anti-theft deterrent until the alarm is disarmed.

If interior space protection is disabled when the alarm is armed (by a double operation of the lock button or key), the light will illuminate constantly for 1 second as confirmation.

When the alarm is partially armed (mislock):

The light flashes rapidly for 10 seconds, then flashes at a slower rate as an anti-theft deterrent until the alarm is disarmed.

If the alarm has been triggered:

When the alarm is triggered, the light flashes rapidly for 5 minutes, before returning to a slow frequency.

If the light flashes rapidly after the vehicle is unlocked, this indicates that the alarm has been triggered during the driver’s absence. The light will flash rapidly for 10 seconds.

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm will sound for 30 seconds and the hazard warning lights will flash for 5 minutes, before switching off and resetting itself to the same protection status that existed prior to the alarm being triggered.

To silence the alarm, press the unlock button on the remote handset.

Single point entry

This is a personal security feature, which enables the driver's door only to be unlocked, leaving the other doors in a locked state. It can be operated by the remote handset as follows:

press the unlock button once to unlock the driver's door (or turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the front of the vehicle, if the vehicle was locked using the key).

press the unlock button (or turn the key) a second time to unlock the remaining doors.

When the vehicle is unlocked using single point entry, if the interior locking button is then pressed, the driver’s door will relock. A second press is required to unlock all the doors.

Single point entry can be disabled or enabled on all handset keys, or on

individual handset keys, by a Land Rover retailer.

Locks & Alarm

Interior space protection

Interior space protection is activated whenever the alarm is armed.

CAUTION: Never activate interior space protection if windows or sunroof are to be left open, or if passengers or animals are to be left inside the vehicle - any movement will activate the alarm.

H3802

Interior space protection is designed to protect the interior of the vehicle from intrusion (entry by a thief through a smashed window, for example). A pair of sensors monitors the interior space and activate the alarm if air movement is detected in the passenger compartment.

NOTE: Interior space protection cannot be activated if a door is open.

Disabling interior space protection:

If there is a requirement to disable interior space protection (if a window or sunroof is to be left open, for example), press the lock button twice within 10 seconds. If locking with the key, turn the key in the driver’s door lock towards the rear of the vehicle twice within 10 seconds.

Speed-related locking*

This security feature locks all the doors automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 10 mph (16 km/h).

Note speed-related locking is not selectable by the driver, and that operation of the door locks by any other means (interior locking switch on the facia panel, for example) will unlock the doors. Speed related locking can be configured by your retailer to automatically relock the doors after they are unlocked, when the vehicle speed exceeds 10 mph (16 km/h).

Speed related locking can be selected, deselected or reconfigured for individual

handset keys, by a Land Rover retailer.

Automatic relock*

If the vehicle is unlocked using the remote, but no door or tailgate is opened after 2 minutes, the vehicle will relock (but not superlock), but the alarm will not be re-armed.

Automatic relock can be selected or deselected by a Land Rover retailer.

Panic alarm*

If the tailgate button on the remote handset (see

‘Using the remote handset’, page 24) is pressed and held, the alarm will sound and the hazard warning lights will flash (market permitting). This feature is to draw attention to the vehicle and driver, to deter potential thieves/attackers.

The panic alarm facility can be selected or deselected by a Land Rover retailer.

WARNING

Accidental closing of an electrically operated window or sunroof on fingers, hands or any vulnerable part of the body, can result in serious injury. Always observe the following precautions:

ENSURE that you have a clear view of all open apertures on the vehicle and that all apertures are unobstructed, before activating the convenience locking feature.

ENSURE children are kept clear whilst raising or lowering windows and opening or closing the sunroof.

ENSURE that all adult passengers are familiar with the controls and the potential dangers of electrically operated windows and sunroof.

‘Convenience’ locking enables you to use the key to close the windows and sunroof at the same time as you secure the vehicle.

‘Convenience’ unlocking enables you to use the handset or key to open the windows and sunroof, at the same time as you unlock and open the vehicle.

Convenience locking:

1.Ensure that all doors, hood and tailgate are properly closed.

2.Turn and the key in the driver’s door lock towards the front of the vehicle, until all the windows and the sunroof are closed - the vehicle security system will be armed.

NOTE: Window and sunroof movement will stop if the key is released during this operation.

Convenience unlocking:

1.Press and hold the unlock button on the remote handset (or turn and hold the key in the driver’s door lock rearwards), the windows and then the sunroof will fully lower/open - the vehicle security system will be disarmed and the driver’s door will unlock.

2.Release the button or key when the windows and sunroof are open as required.

Convenience locking/unlocking can be enabled or disabled by a Land Rover

retailer.

ENGINE IMMOBILISATION

Engine immobilisation is an important aspect of the security system, it is designed to safeguard the vehicle from theft, should the driver forget to lock the doors and prevents the engine from being started unless the GENUINE handset key or emergency key is inserted into the starter switch. Engine immobilisation is automatic whenever any of the following conditions occur.

The vehicle is locked using handset or key.

Three seconds after the starter switch has been turned off AND the driver's door opened.

If the key is removed from the starter switch.

NOTE: The engine will be re-mobilised automatically whenever the genuine handset key is inserted into the starter switch and turned to position ‘I’.

SITTING CORRECTLY

o

.30 max

H4691

The seats, head restraints, seat belts and airbags all contribute to the protection of the occupants. Optimal use of these components will give you more protection. Therefore, observe the following points:

Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the backrest not reclined more than 30 degrees.

Adjust the head restraints so that the top of the head restraint is level with the upper portion of the head.

Do not move the front seat too close to the instrument panel. The driver should hold the steering wheel with slightly bent arms. The legs should also be slightly bent so that the pedals can be pressed to the floor.

The seat belt should rest in the center of the shoulder. The lap part should fit tightly

across the hips and not on the stomach.

POWER OPERATED FRONT SEATS

WARNING

To avoid the risk of loss of control and personal injury, DO NOT adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion.

The seat adjustment controls are situated on the outboard side of the seat plinth.

The driver and front passenger seats should be positioned as far rearward as practical. Ideally the seat should be positioned so that the steering wheel can be held with the arms slightly bent and the seat back in a nearly upright position.

Make sure your driving position is comfortable and enables you to maintain full control of the vehicle. A properly adjusted seat helps reduce the risk of injury from sitting too close to an inflating airbag.

WARNING

It is extremely dangerous to ride in the cargo area. In a collision, people riding in this area are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and safety belts. Be sure that everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a safety belt properly

H3818

WARNING

DO NOT adjust any part of a seat while the vehicle is in motion.

Vehicle movement may cause the unlatched seat to suddenly shift, potentially causing injury.

43

Seats

Returning the seat to the upright position

H3841

Pull the release lever (see inset) rearwards, then push the seat assembly back onto the floor - the floor catches should latch with the base of the seat. Then raise the backrest.

If the backrest cannot be raised easily, DO NOT force it. This indicates that the seat base has not fully engaged with the floor catches (note that the seat assembly is designed to prevent the backrest from being raised unless the seat is properly secured to the floor).

With the seat base secure, the backrest can be raised and locked in position (none of the RED panel on the release lever should be visible when the backrest is correctly latched).

WARNING

After the seat is returned to the upright position, the latching mechanism should be checked and physically tested to ensure that both the seat base and backrest are secure before driving.

In a frontal impact, if the rear seat is not secured (fully latched), it may swing forward contacting the seat in front of it, increasing the risk of injury or death to occupants in those seats.

HEATED SEATS*

For information on operating the front and rear seat heaters, please refer to ‘SEAT HEATERS*’, page 98.

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

WARNING

Seat belts are life saving equipment. In a collision, occupants not wearing a seat belt can be thrown around inside, or possibly thrown out of the vehicle. This is likely to result in more serious injuries than would have been the case had a seat belt been properly worn. It may even result in loss of life!

Don't take chances with safety!

DO make sure ALL occupants are securely strapped in at all times - even for the shortest journeys.

The airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is designed to add to the overall effectiveness of the seat belts. It does not replace them. SEAT BELTS MUST ALWAYS BE WORN!

Ensure that all seat belts are worn correctly - an improperly worn seat belt increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.

DO use the seat belts to secure items of luggage that are to be carried on the seats - in the event of an accident, loose items become flying missiles capable of causing serious injury, or even death.

WARNING

DO NOT fit more than one person into a belt; this could result in the occupants striking each other and causing injury in the event of a crash.

DO NOT use, or attempt to fit, a seat belt that is twisted or obstructed in any way that could impede its smooth operation. If a belt is twisted, it must be straightened before use. Using a twisted or obstructed seat belt could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

ALWAYS use the seat belt lock (buckle) nearest the wearer. If the belt is locked in the wrong place, the seat belt will not fit correctly and may ride up over the abdomen, causing serious internal injury in a crash.

45

Seat Belts

WEARING SEAT BELTS CORRECTLY

Fastening the seat belts

H3900

Inertia reel belts are fitted to all front and rear seating positions.

Draw the belt over the shoulder and across the chest and, ensuring that the webbing is not twisted, insert the metal tongue plate into the buckle nearest the wearer - a ‘CLICK’ indicates that the belt is securely locked.

In some circumstances, perhaps due to the vehicle being parked on a slope, the inertia mechanism may engage, preventing the initial extension of a belt. This is not a fault - ease the belt free and use it.

Adjust the seat belt to eliminate any slack in the webbing. DO NOT slacken the webbing by holding the belt away from the body - to be fully effective, the seat belt must remain in full contact with the body at all times. Also, ensure that the lap belt fits as low on the hips as possible and that the shoulder belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

Positioning the belt

WARNING

Seat belts are designed to bear upon the bony structure of the body (pelvis, chest and shoulders), and can only be worn safely with the seats in a normal, upright, position.

ALWAYS fit the lap strap as low on the hips as possible (never across the abdomen) and ensure that the diagonal belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt with the seat back set to an angle of not more than

30 degrees from the upright. Seat belts are only effective when they are properly positioned on the body - a steeply reclined seat could allow a passenger to slip under either the shoulder or the lap belt.

DO NOT wear the shoulder belt under your arm. In an accident this could increase your chances of being injured.

46

Seat Belts

Wearing seat belts during pregnancy

The seat belts have been designed for all adults, including pregnant women. In a crash situation any occupant is less likely to be injured while correctly restrained by a seat belt. However, pregnant women should wear the lap belt as low on the hips as possible to avoid pressure on the abdomen.

Women should consult their doctor to establish the best use of seat belts during pregnancy.

Upper anchorage adjustment

H3803

The height of the seat belt upper anchorage can be adjusted for comfort AND safety on both front seats and also the two outer rear seats. Press down (solid arrow) to release the catch, then lift or push down to adjust the height of the anchorage. For safety, the seat belt should always be worn with the webbing crossing the shoulder MIDWAY BETWEEN THE NECK AND THE EDGE OF THE SHOULDER.

WARNING

Misadjustment of the seat belt could reduce its effectiveness in a crash. Always ensure the anchorage has ‘clicked’ into one of the locked positions before driving and DO NOT adjust the height once the vehicle is in motion.

Where possible, center rear seat passengers should adjust their position on the seat to enable the seat belt webbing to cross the shoulder without pressing on the neck.

For children, where the seat belt cannot be properly positioned, the use of a booster seat appropriate to the age and size of the occupant is recommended.

Releasing the belt

Press the RED button on the seat belt buckle.

47

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT PRE-TENSIONERS

The seat belt pre-tensioners activate in conjunction with the airbag SRS and provide additional protection in the event of a severe frontal impact on the vehicle (see ‘HOW THE SRS/AIRBAG SYSTEM WORKS’, page 57). The pre-tensioners automatically retract the seat belts fitted to the front seats. This reduces any slack in both the lap and diagonal portions of the belts, thereby reducing forward movement of the belt wearer in the event of a severe frontal collision.

The airbag SRS warning light on the instrument panel will alert you to any malfunction of the seat belt pre-tensioners, see ‘‘SRS/Airbag system warning light’, page 60.

If the pre-tensioners have been activated, the seat belts will still function as restraints, and must be worn in the event that the vehicle remains in a driveable condition. However, for the pre-tensioner to function, it must be replaced.

NOTE: The seat belt pre-tensioners will NOT be activated by rear, side or minor frontal impacts.

WARNING

The seat belt pre-tensioners will only be activated once and then MUST BE REPLACED by a Land Rover retailer. Failure to replace the pre-tensioners will reduce the efficiency of the vehicle’s front restraint system.

After any frontal impact, always have the seat belts and pre-tensioners checked and, if necessary, replaced by a Land Rover retailer.

In the interests of safety, it is recommended that removal or replacement of the front seats and seat belts should only be carried out by a Land Rover retailer.

Service information

WARNING

DO NOT attempt to service, repair, replace, modify or tamper with any part of the pre-tensioner and airbag SRS, or wiring in the vicinity of a pre-tensioner or airbag SRS component; this could cause the system to activate, resulting in personal injury.

After fifteen years from the original date of registration (or the installation date of a replacement pre-tensioners), some components will need to be replaced by a Land Rover retailer (note the ‘Seat belt pre-tensioner replacement date’ shown in the Passport to Service).

In addition, ALWAYS contact your retailer if:

an airbag inflates.

a pre-tensioner activates.

the front or side of the vehicle is damaged, even if the pre-tensioner has not activated.

48

Seat Belts

CARING FOR SEAT BELTS

WARNING

DO NOT allow foreign matter (particularly sugary food and drink particles) to enter the seat belt locks - such substances can render the locks inoperative.

Regularly inspect the belt webbing for signs of fraying, cuts and wear, and also pay particular attention to the condition of the fixing points and adjusters.

DO NOT bleach or dye the webbing. Clean the webbing using warm water and non-detergent soap only - allow to dry naturally and DO NOT retract or use the belts until they are completely dry.

Always replace a seat belt that shows signs of webbing wear or has withstood the strain of a severe vehicle impact.

Testing inertia reel belts

With the seat belt fastened, give the webbing near the buckle a quick upward pull. The buckle must remain securely locked.

With the seat belt unfastened, unreel the webbing to the limit of its travel. Check that unreeling is free from snatches and snags and then allow the belt to FULLY retract.

Partially unreel the webbing, then hold the tongue plate and give it a quick forward pull. The mechanism must lock automatically and prevent any further unreeling.

If a seat belt should fail any of these tests, contact your retailer immediately.

WARNING

Always replace a seat belt that shows signs of webbing damage or has withstood the strain of a severe vehicle impact.

49

Child Restraints

CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR SMALL CHILDREN AND BABIES

Infants and children too small for adult seat belts should be restrained in a child safety seat or restraint system appropriate to their age and/or size, and which is approved for use in your vehicle.

Child seats and restraint systems designed for your vehicle will be one of two types:

Those secured in vehicle seats by lap belts (or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt),

‘LATCH’ type child restraints employing anchor bars built into the rear seat frame.

Some child restraint systems also incorporate a tether strap which can be attached to an anchorage point on the vehicle. Information about tether strap attachment points and the seat belt locking mechanism, which is used to restrain child seats and restraints is shown later in this section.

CAUTION: When fitting child seats and restraint systems, always ensure that the manufacturer's fitting instructions are followed exactly. Note that crash statistics show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front.

CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR LARGER CHILDREN

In a situation where a child is too large to fit into a child safety seat, but is still too small to safely fit the 3 point seat belt properly, a booster seat MUST be used. Follow the manufacturer’s fitting instructions exactly, then adjust the seat belt to suit (see ‘Upper anchorage adjustment’, page 47).

WARNING

DO NOT allow a baby or infant to be carried on the lap. The force of a crash can increase effective body weight by as much as 30 times, making it impossible to hold on to the child.

ALWAYS transport children 12 years old and under in the back seat and always properly use appropriate child restraints.

Children typically require the use of a booster seat appropriate to their age and size, thereby enabling the seat belts to be properly fitted, reducing the risk of injury in a crash.

Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle.

DO NOT use a child seat that hooks over the seat back. This type of seat cannot be satisfactorily secured, and is unlikely to be safe for your child.

Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle.

50

Child Restraints

Vehicles fitted with a passenger airbag

Children under 12 years should travel in the rear of the vehicle at all times. Crash statistics show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front.

However, if it is essential that a child travel in the front, set the seat fully rearward and seat the child in an approved, FORWARD FACING child seat.

The above symbol affixed to the passenger side ‘B’ post of your vehicle, warns against the use of a REAR FACING child seat in the front passenger seat, when a passenger airbag is fitted. This type of child seat could cause serious injury or death to a child in the event of an airbag deployment.

Take careful note of all labels concerning child restraint useage, attached to your vehicle.

WARNING

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A REARWARD FACING CHILD SEAT BE INSTALLED IN ANY FRONT PASSENGER SEAT POSITION. INFLATION OF THE AIRBAG COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO THE CHILD.

Seat belt locking mechanism

All front passenger and second row seat belts have a special locking mechanism which aids the securing of child restraints. The mechanism is used to secure a child restraint as follows:

1.Attach the seat belt to the child restraint in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

2.Insert the metal tongue of the seat belt into the lock ensuring that it engages with a 'click'.

3.Pull on the shoulder section of the belt until it is fully extended.

4.Allow the belt to retract. A 'clicking' sound will confirm that the mechanism has engaged.

5.Remove all slack from the mechanism, by pulling upwards on the shoulder belt, immediately above the child restraint.

6.Evaluate the tightness of the installation by rocking the child seat back and forth to ensure it is tight and stable.

7.If the child seat needs to be tightened further, remove the metal tongue of the seat belt from the buckle and feed some of the shoulder belt webbing back into the reel (thereby shortening the belt). Then reattach the metal tongue into the buckle (if the belt has been tightened correctly, this will take some effort).

8.Re-evaluate the tightness of the installation. If the child seat is still too loose, repeat the above procedure, making the belt incrementally shorter (and therefore tighter). It may be necessary to put your weight onto the seat (to compress the seat cushion) in order to fasten the belt.

To deactivate the locking mechanism, unlatch the seat belt and allow it to fully retract.

Child Restraints

TETHER STRAP ANCHORAGES

Provision is made in the rear seats for the fitting of up to three child seats, of the type that requires tether strap anchorage points.

H4621

WARNING

Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult rear seat belts or for harnesses for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle.

There are three tether strap anchorage points. These should be used to attach tether straps from child seats or restraint systems. Two anchorage points are fitted to the back of the second row seat, these should be used for the two outer seating positions. A third single anchorage point is located in the center of the floor panel behind the rear center seat for attaching a tether strap from the center seat position. Remove the cover to reveal the center child-seat anchoring point.

Attaching tether straps

1.Install the child restraint securely in one of the second row seating positions.

2.Pass the tether strap over the back of the vehicle seat and beneath the underside of the head restraint.

3.Attach the clip on the head of the tether strap to the tether anchor on the back of the vehicle seat (or, for the center seating position, on the tether anchor in the floor panel behind the rear center seat)..

4.Tighten the tether strap according to the manufacturer’s instructions to remove any slack in the webbing.

WARNING

Always follow the child seat or restraint system manufacturer’s instructions when fitting tether straps.

When fitting a child seat or restraint system, always pass the tether strap over the top of the seat back and beneath the underside of the head restraint.

If a child seat or restraint system is to be fitted to the center seating position, the center armrest must be in the stowed position (folded into the seat).

52

Child Restraints

‘LATCH’ TYPE CHILD RESTRAINTS

‘LATCH’ (Lower Anchors and Tether for Children)

The ‘LATCH’ three-point type child restraint system complies with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and is approved for fitting in your vehicle.

H4228

Fitting the restraints

This type of child restraint system should only be fitted in the two outer seating positions of the second row seats. Anchor bars built into the rear seat frame enable ‘LATCH’ type restraints to be securely attached to the vehicle seat in these positions only. The anchor bar locations are shown in the illustration above.

H4229

Anchoring the tether strap

Pass the tether strap over the top of the seat and beneath the underside of the head restraint. Attach the clip on the head of the tether strap to the appropriate tether anchor.

WARNING

If the restraint is not correctly anchored, there is a significant risk of injury to the child, in the event of a collision or emergency braking.

WARNING

DO NOT attempt to fit ‘LATCH’ type restraints to the center seating position - the anchor bars are designed to hold restraints in the outer seating positions only.

53

Child Restraints

When fitting the ‘LATCH’ type of child restraint, always follow the instructions supplied by the manufacturer of the restraint.

Once the restraint is installed, you are recommended to test the security of the installation before seating the child. Attempt to twist the restraint from side to side and to pull the restraint away from the vehicle seat; then check that the anchors are still securely in place.

54

Airbag SRS

H3931

SRS/AIRBAG

The airbag supplementary restraint system (SRS) incorporates front, side thorax and side head airbags for the driver and front passenger and side head airbags for the outer rear passengers (see illustration for airbag locations).

WARNING

Always remember; the SRS/airbags are a supplemental restraint system providing ADDITIONAL protection in certain types of collision only - they DO NOT replace the need to wear a seat belt. To reduce the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash, all occupants in all seating positions, including the driver, should always wear their seat belt, whether or not an airbag is present at that seating position!

Provided the occupants of the vehicle are correctly seated, with seat belts properly worn, the airbags will provide additional protection to the chest and facial areas of the front seat occupants in the event of the vehicle receiving a severe frontal impact, and to the side of the body facing the impact of front seat occupants, if a severe side collision occurs.

Side head air bags will afford additional protection to the side of the head facing the impact for the front seat and outer rear seat occupants, in the event of a side collision.

NOTE: Inflation and deflation of the side thorax and front airbags takes place very quickly and will not protect against the effects of secondary impacts that may occur. Side head airbags deflate at a slower rate and therefore do offer some additional protection in the event of a secondary impact.

55

Airbag SRS

WARNING

DO NOT allow occupants to obstruct the operation of the airbag modules by placing their feet, knees or any part of their person in contact with, or close to, an airbag module whilst the vehicle is moving.

WARNING

Following inflation, some SRS/airbag components are hot - DO NOT touch until they have cooled.

Even with SRS/airbag equipment fitted, seat belts must ALWAYS be worn because inflation and deflation of the side thorax and front airbags takes place very quickly and will not provide protection against the effects of secondary impacts that can occur during multiple vehicle collisions.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends a minimum distance of 10 inches (25 cm) between an occupant’s chest and the driver’s air bag module.

WARNING

The airbag module inflates with considerable speed and force. For your safety:

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries. The injurious effects of airbag inflation can be reduced, by ensuring driver and passenger are seated correctly, with the seat moved back as far as is practical, and the seat belts worn correctly.

NEVER attach or position items (including accessory items) to an airbag module cover, including; the roof lining, front pillar and ‘B’ post finishers and the inside of the front doors, or place items of hand luggage or any objects on the top of a module cover; these could interfere with the inflation of the airbag, or if the airbag inflates, be propelled inside the vehicle causing injury or death to the occupants.

Activation of an airbag creates dust, causing possible breathing difficulties for asthma sufferers or other people with respiratory problems. If an airbag is activated, any occupant who suffers from breathing difficulties should; either leave the vehicle as quickly as possible, or obtain fresh air by fully opening the windows or doors.

Both front seating positions are equipped with knee bolsters to provide knee protection in the event of an impact. DO NOT modify the bolsters, or mount after-market equipment on or behind them.

56

Airbag SRS

Seating positions

WARNING

To reduce the risk of accidental injury from inflating airbags, seat belts should be correctly worn at all times. In addition, both driver and front seat passenger should adjust their seat to provide the maximum practical distance from the front airbags. Front seat and outer rear seat occupants should also ensure that a gap is maintained between the upper torso and head, and the side of the vehicle, to enable unobstructed inflation of the side thorax for the front seat occupants and side head airbags for both front and rear passengers.

Occupants not properly restrained in designated seating positions are subject to serious injury or death upon airbag deployment.

Never place your arm over an air bag module as a deploying air bag can result in serious arm fractures or other injuries.

In order to provide optimum protection in the event of a severe impact, it is necessary for the airbags to deploy with considerable speed.

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries if the occupant is too close to the airbag at the time of its deployment.

Occupant detection

A sensor in the front passenger seat detects whether or not the seat is occupied. If, in the event of an accident, the sensor has detected that there is no front passenger present, the front passenger airbag systems (front, side thorax and side head protection airbags) will not activate.

HOW THE SRS/AIRBAG SYSTEM WORKS

In the event of a collision, the airbag control unit monitors the rate of deceleration or acceleration induced by the collision, to determine whether the airbags should be deployed.

Operation of the SRS/airbag system is dependent entirely on the rate at which the vehicle's passenger compartment changes speed as a result of a collision. The circumstances affecting different collisions (vehicle speed, angle of impact, type and size of object hit, for example), vary considerably and will affect the rate of acceleration or deceleration accordingly.

NOTE: The SRS/airbag system is not designed to operate as a result of rear collisions, minor frontal or side Impacts, roll over accidents; nor will it operate as a result of heavy braking or driving over bumps and potholes. However, if as a result of an impact, you believe the airbags should have deployed and they failed to do so, please call 1(800)637-6837 for advice, or arrange for a Land Rover representative to inspect the vehicle to determine whether the system operated correctly.

It follows, therefore, that significant superficial damage can occur without the airbags deploying or, conversely, that a collision that results in a relatively small amount of structural damage may cause the airbags to be deployed.

57

Airbag SRS

Dual stage deployment

The front airbags deploy in two stages, depending on the severity of the frontal collision. The unit monitors the rate of deceleration or acceleration during the impact and, if a relatively minor frontal impact in which airbag deployment is warranted occurs, the airbags only inflate sufficiently to help protect the front seat occupants from the forward movement caused by the impact. If, however the system detects a relatively severe frontal impact, the airbags will fully inflate, thereby providing maximum protection to the front seat occupants.

Airbag deployment

H4222

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Airbags will only deploy when they are required to supplement the restraining force of the seat belts.

In the case of a severe frontal collision, both front airbags will be deployed if the passenger seat is occupied. In the case of a severe side collision, only the side thorax airbags and side head impact protection airbag on the impacted side of the vehicle will inflate. However, there

may also be impact conditions whereby one set of side and both front airbags deploy at the same time, or where front and side airbags respond separately as a result of a secondary impact occurring after the initial collision has taken place.

WARNING

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries. Reduce the risk of injury by ensuring that front seat occupants are wearing their seat belts and are seated correctly, with the seat as far back as is practical.

Airbag inflation is virtually instantaneous and occurs with considerable force, accompanied by a loud noise. The inflated bag, together with the seat belt restraint system, limit the movement of an occupant, thereby reducing the risk of injury to the head and upper torso.

When an airbag inflates, a fine powder is released. This is not an indication of a malfunction. However, the powder may cause irritation to the skin and should be thoroughly flushed from the eyes and any cuts or abrasions of the skin. After inflation, front and side thorax airbags deflate immediately (side head protection airbags deflate slowly). This provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupant and also ensures that the driver's forward vision is not obscured.

WARNING

After inflation, some airbag components are hot - DO NOT touch until they have cooled.

58

Airbag SRS

Side airbags

H4221

WARNING

Ensure that a gap is maintained between the upper torso and the side of the vehicle, to enable unobstructed inflation of the side thorax airbags.

Side thorax airbags are designed to help protect the thorax region of the torso and will only deploy in the event of a severe side impact. They will NOT inflate as a result of frontal or rear impacts only or in the event of a minor side impact.

In the event of a severe side collision, the airbags on the impacted side of the vehicle deploy from the door, rapidly inflating to form a cushion between the front seat occupants and the side of the vehicle. The airbags on the non-impacted side of the vehicle will not be deployed.

Side head impact protection

NOTE: For the side head impact airbags to deploy correctly, the roof lining and front pillar trim must be undamaged and fitted correctly. Any damage or suspect fitting should be referred to a Land Rover retailer for examination.

Side head impact airbags are designed to help protect the head in the event of a severe side impact only. They will NOT inflate as a result of frontal or rear impacts alone or in the event of a minor side impact.

The side head impact protection modules are located behind the roof lining and front pillar finisher, above the doors. In the event of a severe side collision, the airbag pushes out from behind the roof lining and front pillar finisher as it inflates. The side head impact airbag remains inflated for longer than the other airbags, to provide additional head protection in the event of a secondary impact.

Airbag SRS

SRS/Airbag system warning light

A warning light mounted on the instrument panel will alert you to any malfunction of the SRS/airbag system. The SRS/airbag system should always be checked by a retailer if any of the following symptoms occur. These indicate a fault and may result in the SRS/airbag not operating as required in the event of an impact.

The warning light fails to illuminate when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’.

The warning light fails to extinguish within approximately four seconds after the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’.

The warning light illuminates after the engine is started, or while the vehicle is being driven.

When the starter switch is turned to position ‘ll’, the diagnostic control unit monitors the readiness of the system’s electrical circuits.

The elements of the system being monitored include:

SRS warning light

Rotary coupler

Airbag modules

Seat belt pre-tensioners

Airbag diagnostic control unit

Crash sensors

Airbag wiring harnesses

Seat occupancy sensor

CHILD SEATS

Children aged 12 years and under are more likely than adult occupants to receive injuries from inflating airbags. For this reason, it is recommended that children should always be seated in the second row of seats in a child safety seat or restraint system appropriate to their age and size, see ‘CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR LARGER CHILDREN’, page 50.

If it is necessary for a child to travel in the front, set the seat fully rearwards and use a front facing child seat ONLY.

WARNING

DO NOT USE A REAR FACING CHILD SEAT IN ANY FRONT PASSENGER SEAT LOCATION. If the passenger airbag inflates, a child in a rear facing child restraint could sustain serious injury or death.

Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Be sure to install child restraints according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Under no circumstances should a rear facing child seat be installed facing forward in any seating position.

Always transport children 12 years and under in the second row of seats and always properly use appropriate child restraints.
