OWNER’S HANDBOOK

Publication Part No. LRL 18 02 54 602

© Land Rover 2005

Introduction

Congratulations on acquiring your new Land Rover vehicle. We trust that you will enjoy many years of safe, dependable driving.

This handbook forms part of the Owner literature supplied with your new vehicle. The first section is a Quick Start area, designed to aid the initial driver set up and explain some of the unique features. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the equipment descriptions and operating instructions before you drive. The more that you understand about your new vehicle, the greater the safety, economy and pleasure you will derive from driving it.

To include vehicle design changes made after this handbook was printed, it may have been necessary to issue a handbook supplement. Any supplements will be stored in the literature pack. If further updates are required, they will be posted on the Land Rover internet site and can be accessed at; www.ownerinfo.landrover.com.

Remember to pass on the Owner Literature when reselling the vehicle. It forms an integral part of the whole vehicle package and will help to familiarise the next owner with this vehicle.

This handbook covers all current versions of the Range Rover Sport and, together with the other books in your literature pack, provides all the information that you need to derive maximum pleasure from owning and driving your new vehicle.

Important

The information contained in this handbook covers all vehicle derivatives and optional equipment. Some of the options may not be fitted to your vehicle, unless they formed part of the original vehicle specification. Therefore, some parts of this handbook may not apply to your vehicle. Furthermore, due to printing cycles, it may include descriptions of options before they become generally available.

We operate a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserve the right to change specifications, without notice, at any time. While 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 Dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or Dealer.

All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or other means, without prior written permission from Land Rover Customer Services.

Quick Start

AUTOMATIC MIRROR DIPPING

If your vehicle is fitted with the driver’s seat memory option, the door mirrors may dip when reverse gear is selected. This gives the driver a view of the curbside to aid vehicle positioning when reversing.

The feature is optional and can be adjusted by the user.

For more detailed information on automatic mirror dipping, see Reverse mirror dipping, 71.

RESONANCE WITH LOWERED WINDOWS

If a resonance/booming sound occurs with only the rear windows open, lowering an adjacent front window about 25 mm (1 inch) will greatly reduce the condition. This will change the frequency of the air volume moving in/out of the vehicle and thus lessen or remove the booming sound.

OCCUPANT DETECTION

The cushion of the front passenger seat is fitted with an occupancy detection system that measures the weight on the cushion and changes the passenger airbag status to suit.

The sensor will adjust the passenger airbag status and operate the status indicator as follows:

Seat

Passenger

Status

Premium audio unit illustrated

Before inserting a CD into the audio unit, select CD mode by pressing the CD button.

Note: On Premium audio units it is necessary to then select an empty CD slot, by pressing the appropriate disc selection button (e.g. 3). The six circles at the bottom left-hand side of the screen represent the six available CD slots. As soon as one has a CD in it, its number will appear in the circle. Empty slots are, therefore, those without numbers.

When inserting a disc into either player, ensure that the label side of the disc is facing upwards and present the disc to the slot. Do not push it into the slot, the player mechanism will draw the disc in automatically.

There will be a short pause whilst the player reads the information from the disc, which will then be displayed on the screen. Play will commence at the first track on the newly inserted disc.

Dual and DVDPlus discs

Please be aware that a new generation of DVD discs is being adopted by the music industry. They are known as Dual Discs or DVDPlus discs. They have digital music on one side and video content on the other. Current in-car audio systems with a front loading CD player may load and play this type of disc, however, it is likely that the disc will not eject and will block up the player. Such damage to a CD player will not be covered under warranty.

General Information

HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS

WARNING

Your vehicle 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 vehicle correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle roll-over. For important safety information, be sure to read the driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

WARNINGS AND SYMBOLS

The following warnings, cautions and symbols used within the handbook call your attention to specific types of information.

Example

It is important that you are familiar with these subjects to ensure that your vehicle and its features are used safely. Using the index at the back of this handbook, refer to the relevant topic for more information.

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

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.Lock the vehicle using the remote control

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.

24

General Information

DATA RECORDING

Event data recording

Event data recorders are capable of collecting and storing data during a crash or near-crash event. The recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event. The modules may record information about both the vehicle and the occupants, potentially including information such as:

How various systems in your vehicle were operating.

Whether or not the driver and passenger seat belts were buckled.

How far, if at all, the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the brake pedal.

How fast the vehicle was travelling.

Where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

To access this information special equipment must be connected directly to the recording modules. Land Rover do not access event data recorder information without obtaining consent, unless pursuant to court order or where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or third parties acting with lawful authority.

Other parties may seek to access the information independently of Land Rover.

The operation of all buttons, on remote controls, will be inhibited whilst a key is in the starter switch.

Note: The remote control may not operate correctly in areas that are subject to interference from other radio equipment operating on a similar frequency. Areas where, for example, equipment such as amateur radio, medical devices, telecommunications equipment or other remotely operated alarms are in use may cause difficulty. If such difficulties are experienced, try to operate the remote control as close as possible to the vehicle, or use the key in the door lock. See

Emergency locking/unlocking, 35.

The remote controls supplied with your vehicle are programmed to your security system - the engine cannot be started without a remote control programmed to your vehicle.

Caution: Keep the spare remote control in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE.

Note: Should a remote control be lost or damaged, a replacement can only be obtained from your Land Rover Dealer, where it will be programmed to your vehicle. The Dealer will require proof of ownership, and keep a log of all enquiries for replacement remote controls.

It is advisable to notify your Dealer as soon as possible if a remote control is lost or stolen, and have the remaining remote control reprogrammed. This will prevent access to the vehicle using the lost/stolen remote control.

Compliance

The remote control 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.

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

Locks and Alarms

ALARM SYSTEM

H5967G

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.

Anti-theft alarm indicator

1

H5969G

The indicator provides information about the status of the alarm and immobiliser systems, as follows:

When the alarm is armed:

The indicator will double flash for 10 seconds, then continue to single flash until the vehicle is disarmed and remobilised.

When the alarm is disarmed but the vehicle is immobilised (key out of starter switch):

The indicator will single flash until the alarm is armed or the vehicle is remobilised.

When the alarm is disarmed and the vehicle is mobilised (key in starter switch):

The indicator gives a one-second flash.

32

Locks and Alarms

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm will sound and the hazard warning lamps will flash for 30 seconds, before resetting to the same protection status that existed prior to the alarm being triggered.

To silence the alarm, press the lock or unlock button on the remote control or insert the key into the starter switch. Pressing the lock button will keep the alarm armed.

When the vehicle is disarmed, the hazard warning lamps will quickly flash eight times if the alarm has sounded since the vehicle was last armed.

Perimetric alarm

This feature is activated automatically whenever the vehicle is locked using the remote control and protects the doors, hood and tailgate.

If any of these apertures are opened, or a key that has not been programmed to the vehicle is inserted into the starter switch, while the feature is activated, the alarm will be triggered.

When the perimetric alarm is activated the direction/turn indicators will flash three times, and the anti-theft alarm indicator will flash.

Mislock

If an aperture is open when an attempt is made to lock the vehicle an audible warning will sound once to indicate that the vehicle is not secure.

Single-point entry

This is a personal security feature, which enables only the driver's door to be unlocked, leaving the other doors in a locked state.

Single-point entry can be disabled on individual remote controls by pressing and holding the lock and unlock buttons together for three seconds.

All doors will now unlock with a single press.

Repeating the procedure will re-enable single point entry.

Each time single-point entry is enabled or disabled, the vehicle will lock then unlock into the selected mode.

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. The system prevents the engine from being started unless the GENUINE remote control key is inserted into the starter switch.

Engine immobilisation is automatic five seconds after the key is removed from the starter switch.

Note: The engine will be re-mobilised automatically whenever the genuine remote control key is inserted into the starter switch.When this happens, the anti-theft alarm indicator will illuminate for one second and then extinguish.

33

Locks and Alarms

LOCKING/UNLOCKING

While it is not necessary to point the remote control at the vehicle, the remote control must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed.

Note: If the remote control fails to work even when close to the vehicle, it could be that it is not synchronised with the system. See

Emergency locking/unlocking, 35. Putting the key in the starter switch and running the engine for six minutes will restore full operation.

The operating range may vary depending upon remote control battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control.

Note: If a key is in the starter switch, the vehicle will not respond to remote control commands.

Locking with the remote control

Remove the key from the starter switch and shut all doors, the hood and the tailgate.

The four buttons on the remote control are used as follows:

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

Do not move the driver’s seat too close to the steering wheel. Ideally, a minimum distance B of at least 25 cm (10 in.) between the center of the breastbone and the cover of the steering wheel airbag is recommended. 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.

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.

Note: For information on adjusting the steering column, see STEERING COLUMN ADJUSTMENT, 69.
