OWNER’S HANDBOOK

Publication Part No. LRL 21 02 51 601

© Land Rover 2005

Introduction

This handbook covers current versions of the Land Rover Defender models and, together with other books in your literature pack, provides all of information that you 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 different aspect of 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 Defender 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.

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.

To include changes made after the handbook is printed, it is sometimes necessary to issue one or more handbook supplements.

Any further updates will be posted on the Land Rover internet site and can be accessed at www.ownerinfo.landrover.com

* An asterisk appearing within the handbook text identifies features or items of equipment that are either optional, or are only fitted to some vehicles in the model range.

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 dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the 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 the Service Division of Land Rover.

As part of Land Rover environmental policy, this publication is printed on paper made from chlorine free pulp.

For more information concerning the operation of your audio system, see ‘AUDIO SYSTEM’, page 175.

NOTE: Some music CD manufacturers are using data encryption to 'copy-protect' their recordings and prevent the production of pirate copies. These CDs differ from the internationally agreed CD audio standard, RedBook, a standard that serves as the operating basis for all CD players and changers.

Copy-protected CDs may not play in your Audio unit or CD changer or may be played subject to various limitations, e.g. sound quality may be impaired.

If you do experience a problem, try the CD in other players before contacting the CD vendor.

Filling Station Information

Tyre pressures

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tyres (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). if you have to check warm tyres, you should expect the pressures to have increased between 30 and 40 kPa (4 and 6 lbf/in2). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tyres in order to match the recommended pressures.

General Information

WARNINGS IN THIS HANDBOOK

WARNING

Safety warnings are included in this handbook. These indicate either a procedure which must be followed precisely, or information that should be considered with great care, in order to avoid the possibility of personal injury or serious damage to the vehicle.

HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS

WARNING

Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance and, hence, a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars. This will result in different handling characteristics.

Inexperienced drivers should take additional care, particularly in off-road driving situations and when performing abrupt manoeuvres on unstable surfaces.

SYMBOLS USED

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

This recycling symbol identifies those items that must be disposed of safely in

order to prevent unnecessary damage to the environment.

*An asterisk appearing within the text, identifies features or items of equipment that are either optional, or are only fitted to some vehicles in the model range.

17

General Information

WARNING LABELS ATTACHED TO THE VEHICLE

Warning labels attached to your vehicle bearing this symbol mean: DO NOT touch or adjust components until you have read the relevant instructions in the handbook.

Warning labels showing this symbol indicate that the ignition system utilises very high voltages. DO NOT touch any ignition components while the starter switch is turned on.

WARNING LABELS

Labels are attached to your vehicle at several positions. These are applied to draw your attention to important subjects such as tyre pressures, tow bar usage, airbags, roll over risk, engine compartment hazards, etc,

IMPORTANT

BEFORE JACKING VEHICLE

1.ENGAGE DIFF. LOCK. (i.e. WARNING LIGHT MUST BE ILLUMINATED

PRIOR TO SWITCHING OFF IGNITION.)

2.APPLY HANDBRAKE.

3.CHOCK WHEELS

H4730

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.

ALARM SYSTEM*

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

Using the remote control

H3619

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 that the operating range may vary depending upon remote control 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 within a few feet of the vehicle.

Vehicles with central door locking

Locking with the remote control:

Press the lock (padlock symbol) button once:

all doors are locked (including the tail door)

engine immobilised

perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors and bonnet)

interior space protection activated*

The direction indicator lamps flash three times to confirm that the vehicle is secure and the anti-theft alarm indicator (in the instrument panel) starts to flash.

Locking with the key:

Insert the key and turn the driver’s door lock towards the rear of the vehicle:

all doors locked (including the tail door)

engine immobilised

NO PERIMETRIC ALARM OR INTERIOR SPACE PROTECTION

The anti-theft alarm indicator (in the instrument panel) starts to flash after 30 seconds to show that the engine is immobilised.

Unlocking with the remote control:

Press the unlock (PLAIN) button once to disarm the alarm and unlock the doors.

The direction indicator lamps flash once and the interior lamps illuminate.

Unlocking with the key:

While all the doors can be unlocked using the key in the driver’s door lock, this method is NOT RECOMMENDED - depending on the specification of the vehicle the alarm may not be disarmed.

Locks and Alarms

Vehicles without central door locking

Locking and unlocking:

Each door lock must be operated individually, using the key. The remote control will NOT operate the door locks. Turn the key towards the rear of the vehicle to lock and towards the front to unlock.

Arming & disarming the alarm:

Press the lock button on the remote control to arm the alarm.

Perimetric protection protects the doors and bonnet.

Interior space protection is activated.

Engine is immobilised.

Provided the doors and bonnet are securely closed, the direction indicators will flash three times and the anti-theft alarm indicator in the instrument panel will start to flash.

To disarm the alarm, press the unlock (PLAIN) button on the remote control; the direction indicators will flash once and the interior lamps illuminate.

Door sill locking buttons

From inside the vehicle, each door can be individually locked by depressing the appropriate sill locking button.

H3664

WARNING

DO NOT depress the sill buttons as a means of locking the doors from outside the vehicle (this practice - known as ‘slam locking’ - is NOT recommended, because keys can be locked inside accidentally).

On vehicles with central door locking, operation of the driver’s door sill locking button locks all the other doors too. However, engine immobilisation and interior space protection are suspended unless the remote control lock button is pressed as well.

NOTE: Slam locking, as described above, is prohibited on vehicles with central door locking.

H3662

The indicator lamp in the speedometer (arrowed in illustration) provides information about the status of the alarm system, as follows:

When the alarm is armed:

The lamp flashes rapidly while the alarm is arming itself. After 10 seconds, the lamp adjusts to a slower frequency and continues to flash as an anti-theft deterrent until the alarm is disarmed.

If the engine is immobilised (even though the alarm has been disarmed):

The lamp flashes slowly until the engine is remobilised.

If the alarm has been triggered:

The lamp will flash rapidly when the alarm is disarmed until the starter switch is turned to position II.

If the remote control battery power is low:

The lamp will flash rapidly during the initial 10 seconds after the remote control has been used, while the alarm system is arming.

If the driver’s door is open:

The lamp illuminates for 10 seconds, before adjusting to slow frequency flashing.

Mislock

If a door is not fully closed when the remote control lock button is pressed, the hazard warning lamps will fail to flash, indicating a mislock. In this case, the alarm system will not be fully armed and on vehicles with central door locking, none of the doors will lock.

As soon as the open aperture is closed, the hazard warning lamps will flash and the anti-theft alarm indicator lamp will resume flashing to confirm that the system has returned to a fully armed state.

NOTE: If a mislock occurs as a result of an open door, interior space protection will not be activated.

NOTE: If a mislock occurs as a result of an open bonnet, the door apertures will still be protected by the alarm system and interior space protection will be active.

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound for 30 seconds before switching off and resetting itself to the same protection status that existed prior to the alarm being triggered. The alarm can be triggered up to three times before needing to be reset.

To silence the alarm, press either button on the remote control.

NOTE: While the alarm is sounding, the hazard warning lamps will flash to provide a visual alarm.

INTERIOR SPACE PROTECTION*

H3597

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

Using the remote control:

Interior space protection is activated automatically whenever the remote control is used to set the alarm and can ONLY be deactivated with the remote control.

Key operation:

On vehicles fitted with central door locking, using the key to arm the alarm will NOT activate (or deactivate) interior space protection.

NOTE: Interior space protection cannot be activated if a door is open, or if the starter switch is turned on.

Interior protection will not operate for the first 15 seconds after the alarm is set.

NOTE: 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.

Vehicles without central door locking

To disable interior space protection when setting the alarm, use the following procedure:

1.Open the driver’s door.

2.With the driver’s door open, use the remote control to arm the alarm in the normal way.

3.Close the driver’s door (the hazard warning lamps flash three times and the anti-theft indicator lamp commences flashing rapidly).

The alarm system is now armed with interior protection disabled.
