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

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.

22

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.

24

Locks and Alarms

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.

25

Locks and Alarms

ENGINE IMMOBILISATION

Engine immobilisation is an important aspect of the security system, and includes a feature known as ‘passive immobilisation’. This is designed to safeguard the vehicle from theft, should the driver forget to lock the doors or arm the alarm. Engine immobilisation is automatic whenever any of the following conditions occurs:

The vehicle is locked using remote control or key.

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

Five minutes after the starter switch is turned off, or the alarm system is disarmed.

The engine is re-mobilised when the vehicle is unlocked using the remote control. However, if no further action - such as ignition being turned on - takes place within the next five minutes, passive immobilisation will occur.

The engine immobilisation system relies on the remote control to re-mobilise the engine. Look after the remote control at all times, protecting them from loss, damage and battery discharge.

If the engine has immobilised passively, re-mobilisation will occur when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’, provided the remote control is on the same ring as the key and in close proximity to the switch.

ALWAYS keep the remote control on the same ring as the key.

NEVER attach both remote controls to the SAME key ring.

Any attempt to start the engine while it is immobilised, will cause the engine immobilisation warning indicator (in the speedometer) to flash.

Emergency key access

If the remote control is damaged, or fails to operate, the engine can be re-mobilised by using the starter key to enter a unique four number emergency key access code. The code is recorded on the Security card and is entered as follows:

If your remote control is lost or inoperative, it is impossible to disarm the alarm. As soon as the door is opened, the alarm will sound (continuously for up to three 30-second periods), and continue while the code is being entered.

H6631

1.Remove the remote control from the key ring and keep the remote control well away from the starter switch when entering the code.

2.From inside the vehicle, with the driver’s door closed, immediately insert the key into the starter switch and turn to position ‘II’. Hold this position until the alarm sounds, then switch off and open and close the driver’s door.

3.Turn the starter switch to position ‘II’ the required number of times to enter the first digit of the code (if the first digit is 4, turn the key to position ‘II’ and then back to ‘0’ four times).

4.Open and close the driver’s door (this will enter the first digit of the code).

26

Locks and Alarms

5.Turn the starter switch to position ‘II’ and back to ‘0’ the required number of times to enter the SECOND digit of the code.

6.Open and close the driver’s door again.

7.Turn the starter switch to position ‘II’ and back to ‘0’ the required number of times to enter the THIRD digit of the code.

8.Open and close the driver’s door again.

9.Turn the starter switch to position ‘II’ and back to ‘0’ the required number of times to enter the FOURTH digit of the code.

10.Finally, open and close the driver’s door one more time.

If the code has been entered correctly, the anti-theft indicator will extinguish, the alarm will stop sounding and the engine can be started.

If an incorrect code has been entered:

If the code is entered incorrectly, the alarm sounder will sound twice, the anti-theft indicator lamp will continue to illuminate, and the engine will fail to start. Before entering the code again, turn the starter switch to position ‘II’ and hold in this position for 5 seconds.

After three failed entry attempts, the security system invokes a delay period of 30 minutes during which the system will not accept any further attempts to enter a code.

Memorise the emergency key access code or keep the Security card on your person in case of emergencies. NEVER leave the card in the vehicle.

REMOTE CONTROL BATTERY

The battery should last for approximately three years dependent upon use. When the battery needs replacing it will be apparent from the following symptoms:

The remote control will only work every other operation while disarming.

The hazard warning lamps will not flash when the alarm is disarmed.

DO NOT remove a battery until you are ready to install the replacement.

The engine will immobilise five minutes after the key is removed from the starter switch (or 30 seconds after the starter has been switched off and the driver’s door opened). If remote control battery replacement is NOT completed within this period, the emergency key access code will have to be entered before the remote control can be synchronised.

Always fit a Land Rover STC 4080 or a Panasonic CR2032 replacement battery (available from a Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer).

WARNING

The remote control contains delicate electronic circuits and must be protected from impact and water damage, high temperatures and humidity, direct sunlight and the effects of solvents, waxes and abrasive cleaners.

ALARM OR REMOTE CONTROL DIFFICULTIES

If the alarm goes off unexpectedly:

Ensure all the windows and sunroof are closed, or if they need to be left open, disable interior space protection.

If the alarm goes off when a door is opened:

Disarm the alarm with the remote control before unlocking. If the remote control has failed, enter the emergency key access code (refer to ‘Emergency key access’, page 26).

If the starter will not operate:

Ensure the remote control is on the same key ring as the starter key. If it still will not operate, consult a Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer.

If the hazard warning lamps fail to flash when the alarm is armed:

A door or bonnet is partially opened - close the open aperture and try again.

Battery disconnection

Your vehicle is equipped with a battery backed-up sounder*, which operates as an anti-theft siren if the vehicle battery is disconnected.

Before disconnecting the vehicle battery, it is ESSENTIAL to refer to, in order to prevent the alarm from sounding.

If the vehicle battery is disconnected for any reason, the status of the security system prior to disconnection will be memorised and automatically reset when the battery is reconnected.

CHILD-PROOF LOCKS*

H3661

Move the locking levers on the rear doors down to engage the child locks.

With the child-proof locks engaged, the rear doors cannot be opened from inside the vehicle, thereby avoiding the risk of a door being opened accidentally while the vehicle is moving.

FRONT SEATS

WARNING

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

Sitting correctly

The seats, head restraints, and seat belts 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 reclined not more than ’A’ 30O.

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 driver’s seat too close to the steering wheel. Ideally, a minimum distance ’B’ of at least 254 mm (10 in) between the centre of the breastbone and the steering wheel cover 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 centre 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.

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

The use of front and rear seat belts is mandatory in most countries. Using seatbelts saves lives. For maximum protection they should be worn by all occupants whenever the vehicle is in use.

WARNING

The seat belts fitted to the front and second row seats are intended for use by adult sized occupants. Each belt should be used by one occupant only.

Lap or shoulder seat belts are provided for all seat positions.

The inertia reel operation of the seatbelts allows the wearer to move their upper bodies to reach various controls. The seatbelt locks automatically with rapid body movement, or in the event of emergency braking.

WARNING

Observe the following precautions:

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

Seat belts are designed to bear upon the bone structure of the body and should be worn low across the pelvis, chest, and shoulders, as applicable. Wearing the lap section of the belt across the abdominal area must be avoided.

DO NOT wear seat belts over hard, sharp or fragile items in clothing, such as pens, keys, spectacles etc.

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.

WARNING

Belts should not be worn with the webbing/straps twisted.

Seat belts should be adjusted as firmly as possible, consistent with comfort, to provide the protection for which they are designed. A slack belt will greatly reduce the protection afforded to the wearer.

DO NOT allow front seat occupants to travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt with the seat back angle set to approximately 30º from the upright (vertical) position.

Each belt assembly must only be used by one occupant at a time. It is extremely dangerous to put a belt around a child being carried on an occupant’s lap.

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

Where possible use the seat belts to secure large items of luggage that are to be carried on the seats - in the event of an accident, insecure items become flying missiles capable of causing serious injury. Take care to ensure that no sharp edges are able to come into contact with the seat belt.

Should the belt not retract and remain at it’s static length, consult your Land Rover dealer/authorised repairer immediately.

Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the webbing with polishes, oils and chemicals, and particularly corrosive substances such as battery acid.

Cleaning may be carried out safely using mild soap and water.

38

Seat Belts

PREGNANT WOMEN

WARNING

Pregnant women must wear a correctly positioned seat belt; it is safer for mother and unborn child.

During pregnancy, women should wear the lap belt across the hips below the baby, with the diagonal belt passing across the shoulder, between the breasts and to one side of the baby - if in doubt, consult a doctor.

SEAT BELTS

To minimise injury in the event of an accident, it is important that seat belts are worn correctly. Read the instructions below and ‘SEAT BELT SAFETY’, page 38.

Fastening the inertia reel seat belts

H5157

WARNING

Never place anything between you and the seat belt in an attempt to cushion the impact in the event of an accident. It can be dangerous and reduce the effectiveness of the seat belt in preventing injury.

H3715

Pull 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.

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 - DO NOT allow front seat occupants to travel with the seat steeply reclined.

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

Releasing the belt

Press the RED button on the seat belt buckle.

39

Seat Belts

Lap belts

H3716

To adjust, pull the slider along the belt and feed the webbing through the buckle until the belt is comfortably tight. Then, insert the metal tongue plate into the buckle nearest the wearer - a ‘CLICK’ indicates that the belt is securely locked. When not in use, the lap belts should be fastened.

CARING FOR SEAT BELTS

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

DO NOT bleach or dye the webbing and avoid contaminating the webbing with polish, oil or chemicals (see ‘CLEANING THE INTERIOR’, page 132).

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 dealer immediately.

WARNING

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

40

Child Restraints

CHILD SEATS

WARNING

DO NOT use a forward-facing child seat until a child is above the minimum weight of 9 kg (20 lb.) and able to sit up unaided. Up to the age of two a childs neck and spine are not sufficiently developed to avoid injury in a frontal impact.

The side-facing folding or fixed bench seats fitted in the load carrying area of some vehicles, are not suitable for fitting child safety seats.

DO NOT allow a baby or infant to be carried on the lap of an occupant. The force of a crash can increase the effective bodyweight by as much as thirty times, making it impossible to hold onto the child. Children typically require the use of a booster seat appropriate to their age and size, thereby enabling the seat belts to be properly fitted. This reduces the risk of injury in a crash. Children could be endagered in a crash if their 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 a child.

The seat belts fitted to your vehicle are designed for adults and larger children. It is very important that all infants and children under 12 are restrained in a suitable child safety seat appropriate to their age and size (see table below). Child safety seats approved for use in your vehicle are available from your Land Rover dealer/authorised repairer.

Only fit a child safety seat of a type approved for the specific seating positions in your vehicle (see table) and ensure the manufacturer's fitting instructions are followed exactly.

NOTE: Crash statistics show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions, than they are in the front.

The location and specification of the warning indicators may vary according to model and market requirements.

WARNING

DO NOT drive if a RED warning indicator remains on once the engine is running or illuminates whilst driving.

Check engine - AMBER*

Illuminates as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned on, and extinguishes as

soon as the engine is started. Illumination at any other time indicates an

engine fault - if the indicator illuminates while driving, avoid high speeds and seek qualified assistance urgently.

Glow plug - AMBER

Illuminates when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’. Wait for

the indicator to extinguish before starting the engine.

ABS TC

Low oil pressure - RED

Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is

turned to position ‘II’ and extinguishes when the engine is started. If the indicator remains on, flashes on and off, or illuminates whilst driving, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and SWITCH OFF

THE ENGINE IMMEDIATELY. Seek qualified assistance before driving. Always check the oil level when this indicator illuminates.

Direction indicators - GREEN

The left or right warning indicator flashes in time with the

corresponding left or right direction indicator lamps whenever they are operated. If the warning indicator fails to flash, or flashes very rapidly, this may indicate a bulb failure in one of the direction indicator lamps.

If the hazard switch is pressed, both warning indicators will flash in conjunction with the direction indicator lamps.

Battery charging - RED

Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ‘II’ and extinguishes once the engine is running. If it remains on, or illuminates whilst driving, a fault is indicated. Seek qualified assistance urgently.

45

Warning Indicators

Headlamp main beam - BLUE

Illuminates when the headlamps are switched to main beam.

Low fuel - AMBER

Illuminates when the fuel remaining in the tank drops to a minimum of 9 litres (2 gallons). If

the indicator illuminates, refuel at the first opportunity.

Handbrake, brake fluid - RED

The indicator illuminates for about 3 seconds as a bulb check when

the starter switch is turned on. It also illuminates when the handbrake is applied with the starter switch in position ‘II’. The indicator should extinguish when the handbrake is fully released or shortly after the electrical circuits are switched on. If the indicator illuminates whilst driving, a fault with the braking system is indicated. Stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance before continuing.

Anti-lock braking system - AMBER*

Illuminates for approximately 1

second as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned to

position ‘II’, and briefly extinguishes before coming on again. If the indicator does not extinguish and then come on again, then a fault occurred with the ABS system and you should consult a qualified dealer at the earliest opportunity. The warning indicator will remain on until the vehicle is driven above approximately 7 km/h (4 mph).

If the indicator remains on or subsequently illuminates while driving, a fault has been detected by the self monitoring system. This means that full ABS control may not be available and you should consult your dealer at the earliest opportunity.

Traction Control - AMBER*

Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ‘II’ and extinguishes after approximately 3 seconds. The indicator illuminates for a minimum of 2 seconds, whenever traction control is operating.

If the warning indicator flashes (for at least 10 seconds) traction control has been operating for too long and has temporarily shut down to allow the system to cool - this will only occur in extreme conditions.

If the indicator illuminates continuously, a fault with the system is indicated; seek qualified assistance.

46

Warning Indicators

Rear fog lamps - AMBER*

Illuminates whenever the rear fog lamps are on.

NOTE: In clear conditions, rear fog lamps can dazzle other road users. Use ONLY when visibility is severely restricted.

Engine immobilisation - RED

Flashes during any attempt to start the engine when the engine is immobilised.

Heated rear screen - AMBER*

Illuminates when the rear screen heater is operating.

Differential lock - AMBER

Illuminates whenever the differential is locked. If the

indicator remains on after the differential lock is disengaged, transmission ‘wind-up’ may be present. Reversing for a short distance and then going forward will usually ‘unwind’ the transmission. If the indicator remains on, contact your dealer as soon as possible.

Hazard warning lamps - RED

Illuminates in conjunction with the direction indicator warning lamps, when the hazard warning lamps are operated.

Trailer direction indicators - GREEN

Illuminates briefly as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’. If a trailer is attached, the indicator illuminates in conjunction with the

vehicle direction indicator lamps to show that all trailer indicator lamps are functioning correctly. In the event of a bulb failure on the trailer, the warning indicator flashes once and then remains off.

Sidelamps - GREEN

Illuminates whenever the sidelamps are on.

Transmission oil temperature - RED*

Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ and extinguishes after

3 seconds approx. If the indicator illuminates while driving, the gearbox oil temperature is too high (most likely to occur in very hot weather during continuous high speed driving, or whilst towing heavy loads on steep inclines or if the handbrake has been applied while driving).

If the indicator illuminates, reduce speed. If the indicator remains on, stop the vehicle and allow the gearbox to cool. Do not drive until the indicator has extinguished.

Depending on the ambient temperature and the loads imposed on the vehicle, it may take several minutes before the indicator extinguishes and it is safe to drive.

Lamps and Indicators

Headlamp levelling*

H3669

The angle of the headlamp beams is affected by the distribution of weight inside the vehicle. The headlamps should be adjusted so that the point at which the beams meet the road surface ahead of the vehicle provides adequate illumination without dazzling other road users.

The four-position switch should be used to adjust the headlamp beams in relation to the vehicle loadings identified opposite.

FOG LAMPS*

HAZARD WARNING LAMPS

H3692

Rear fog lamps

Press to operate, press a second time to switch off (the indicator in the switch illuminates when the fog

guard lights are switched on). The rear fog lamps illuminate ONLY when the headlamps are also switched on, and the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’. Switching off the headlamps, or turning the starter switch to position ‘0’, will automatically extinguish the rear fog lamps (the fog lamps will not illuminate again unless selected manually).

ALWAYS remember to switch the fog lamps off as soon as visibility permits; in clear conditions fog lamps can dazzle other road users.

H3693

Press to operate; all the direction indicator lamps (including those fitted to a trailer) will flash

together. Use ONLY in an emergency to warn other road users when your stationary vehicle is causing an obstruction, or is in a hazardous situation. Remember to switch off before moving away.
