Alarm

ARMING THE ALARM

The alarm system is automatically armed, and the engine immobilised,

when the remote lock button is pressed. The hazard lamps will flash to indicate that the alarm is armed.

Once armed, the alarm will sound if:-

a door, the bonnet or the taildoor are opened.

movement is detected within the vehicle interior.

the vehicle battery is disconnected.

an attempt is made to disconnect the alarm siren.

Note: If the alarm is armed and a window or the sunroof are left open the alarm will sound due to movement of air currents.

Alarm indicator

E85180

The alarm status is displayed by the indicator in the speedometer.

Indicator off - alarm disarmed.

Indicator flashes rapidly for 10 seconds when the remote lock button is pressed, then adjusts to a slower frequency - the alarm has been armed.

If the indicator fails to adjust to a slower frequency after the initial 10 second period, the remote control battery needs replacing.

Indicator flashes rapidly when the alarm is disarmed - the alarm has been triggered.

Indicator flashes slowly - the engine is immobilised, but the alarm is disarmed.

Indicator illuminates (without flashing) for 10 seconds before adjusting to a slow frequency flash - the driver's door is not closed.

Engine immobilisation

Engine immobilisation prevents the engine from being started without a valid key and remote control and is activated whenever the alarm is armed using the remote control. In addition, the immobiliser activates automatically under the following conditions:

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

Five minutes after the starter switch is turned off or after the alarm system is disarmed (if the starter switch has not been turned on).

Note: Details on how to deactivate engine immobilisation are given later in this section. See DISARMING THE ALARM (page 36).

Alarm

DISARMING THE ALARM

When the vehicle is unlocked using the remote control, the alarm is

automatically disabled and the engine is remobilised. The hazard lamps will flash once to indicate that the alarm is disabled.

Note: If the remote control is lost, damaged or fails to operate, it is necessary to enter the emergency key access code, to disarm the alarm and deactivate engine immobilisation.

Deactivating engine immobilisation

Engine immobilisation is deactivated automatically whenever the vehicle is unlocked using the remote control. Engine immobilisation is also deactivated when the starter switch is turned to position II, provided the remote control is on the same key ring as the key and in close proximity to the switch.

If, however, the remote control is damaged, or fails to operate, immobilisation can only be deactivated by entering the emergency key access code.

Emergency key access

Note: If the remote control cannot be used, it is impossible to disarm the alarm in the normal way. The alarm will sound (for 30 second durations) as soon as a door is opened and will continue until the code has been entered.

To deactivate engine immobilisation manually, in the event of remote control failure, follow the procedure below to enter the unique four digit emergency key access code. The code for your vehicle is recorded on the Security card.

E85179

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

2.Unlock the driver's door using the key, open the door and enter the vehicle. Shut the driver's door.

3.Insert the key in the starter switch, turn and hold the key in position II until the alarm sounds. Then, turn off the starter switch and open and close the driver's door.

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

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

6.Turn the starter switch to position II and back to 0 the required number of times to enter the second digit of the code, then open and close the driver's door.

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, then open and close the driver's door.

36

Alarm

8.Turn the starter switch to position II and back to 0 the required number of times to enter the fourth digit of the code, then finally, open and close the driver's door one more time.

If the code has been entered correctly, the alarm 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 alarm indicator 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 five seconds.

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

Deactivating the alarm when triggered

If the alarm has been triggered it can be deactivated by pressing either of the remote control buttons.

Audio introduction

RADIO RECEPTION

E81779

Some interference is to be expected from time to time during a journey. Occasionally it may be necessary to retune the audio unit to offset the effects of moving from one transmitter area to another.

While Radio Data System (RDS) automatic retuning helps to reduce the effects of signal changes, some manual retuning may still be required (especially for local stations) in areas of weak reception.

FM Signals travel in a straight line so large obstacles, such as tall buildings, can shield the vehicle from the signal, causing distortion or loss of reception (known as dead spots).

Distortion can also occur if FM signals received directly from the transmitter, mix with signals deflected by obstructions such as mountains, hills and tall buildings. This is known as multi-path distortion.

Note: Although distortion, interference and lack of signal clarity are sometimes attributed to a fault in the radio, this is rarely the case.

Radio aerial

CAUTION

The radio aerial should be fully lowered, before the vehicle enters an automated car wash.

E88514

Raise the aerial, as shown, to improve radio reception.

153

Audio system security

SECURITY CODE

The security code is entered into the head unit during manufacture; it is not necessary to enter the code during normal vehicle usage.

However, in the event of a battery reset, e.g. subsequent to a flat battery or head unit change, the head unit will prompt for a security code.

Entering a security code

The vehicle is delivered to the user with a security code card; the user must enter the code using the numeric (radio preset) buttons to resume operation of the head unit. For example, if the code is 1234 the user must press the number 1 button once, the number 2 button twice, the number 3 button three times and the number 4 button four times followed by a single press of the number 5 button to complete the code input process.

In the event that the head unit code card is lost, the user should seek advice from the dealer to retrieve the code for their head unit. The user will be required to produce some form of proof that they are the rightful owner of the vehicle e.g. the log book or a purchase receipt (if bought second hand, for example) before the dealer is authorised to issue the code. This condition is imposed to prevent stolen head units being used.

Child safety

CHILD SEATS

WARNINGS

Crash statistics show that children are safest when properly restrained on the

rear seat.

Do not use a forward facing child seat until the child using it is above the

minimum weight of 9 kg (20 lb.) and able to sit up unaided. Up to the age of two, a child's spine and neck are not sufficiently developed to avoid injury in a frontal impact.

Do not allow a baby or infant to be held or carried on the lap. The force of a

crash can increase effective body weight 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, 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.

It is very important for all infants and children under 12 years of age to be restrained in a suitable child safety seat appropriate to their age and size.

Child restraint check list

Every time a child travels in the vehicle observe the following:-

Use appropriate child restraints.

Carefully follow the restraint system manufacturers instructions.

Adjust the harnesses for every child on every trip.

Ensure that all slack is removed from the adult seatbelt.

Always check the security of the child restraint.

Do not dress a child in bulky clothing, or place any objects/padding between the child and the restraint.

Regularly check the fit and condition of child restraints. If the fit is poor, or wear/damage is visible replace the restraint immediately.

Set a good example - always wear your seat belt.

Note: The information contained in the following table may not be applicable to all countries. If you are in any doubt regarding the type and fitment of child seats seek advice from your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer.

CAUTION

Information given within the table is correct at the time of going to press. However, availability of child restraints may change. Please consult your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer for the latest recommendation.

Note: The legislation which governs how and where children should be carried when travelling in a vehicle, is subject to change. It is the responsibility of the driver to comply with all regulations in force.

BOOSTER CUSHIONS

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 three point belt properly, a booster seat is recommended for maximum safety. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for fitting and use, then adjust the seat belt to suit.

CHILD SAFETY LOCKS

E85681

Child safety locks are fitted to the rear doors to allow you to prevent accidental opening of the doors when the vehicle is in motion.

If children are to be carried in the rear seat positions, it is recommended that the rear door interior handles are disabled.

Note: For convenience, the rear door interior handles should be re-enabled when carrying adult passengers in the rear seat positions.

To change the child lock settings:-

1.Open the door to access the child safety lock.

2.Move the locking lever up to enable, or down to disable the interior door handle, as required.

Recirculation (3)

When selected, the air is recirculated inside the vehicle. This helps to maintain a high or low temperature, and is useful for preventing fumes from entering the vehicle.

Note: Prolonged use at low temperatures may cause the windows to mist.

Air distribution (4)

Rotate the control to set the air distribution to the required points (face, face and feet, feet and windscreen, windscreen only).

For maximum heating, set the control to feet and windscreen.

For maximum ventilation, set the control to face only.

For maximum demisting/defrosting, set the control to windscreen only.

71

Climate control

Air conditioning (5)

Air conditioning provides additional cooling to the vehicle interior and also reduces the moisture content of the air.

In very humid conditions, slight screen misting may be experienced when air conditioning is turned on. This will clear in a few seconds.

If the interior temperature is higher than the temperature outside the vehicle, it may take a short time for the air conditioning to be effective. It is best, in these circumstances, to fully ventilate the vehicle using the blower control, window and sunroof, prior to switching on the air conditioning.

It is recommended that the air conditioning is operated for a short while every week, to keep the system in peak condition.

Note: Air conditioning only operates with the engine running.

Note: The air conditioning system takes power from the engine and consequently increases fuel consumption.

Defrost/demist

For maximum defrosting or demisting of the windows, use the following settings:

Set the air distribution control to windscreen only.

Set the temperature control to maximum.

Set the blower speed to 3.

Set the air recirculation control to fresh air for demisting and defrosting.

Activate air conditioning.

Heated screens

CAUTIONS

Do not stick labels over the heating elements on the rear screen.

Do not scrape or use abrasive materials to clean the inside of the rear screen.

Compact disc player

LOADING COMPACT DISCS

CAUTIONS

Do not force the disc into the slot.

Only use clean, undamaged discs. Do not use discs with paper labels, Dual Discs, DVDPlus discs or discs that are not circular or are warped. The CD player may load and play this type of disc; however, it is likely that the

disc will not eject and will block the CD mechanism. Such damage to a CD player will not be covered under warranty.

Note: Some music CD manufacturers are using data encryption to copy-protect their recordings and prevent the production of counterfeit 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 fail to play in your 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.

Low quality audio playback

Original recordings employ industry standard software to ensure high quality reproduction. Home recordings and pirated copies of original recordings are unlikely to be of the same standard; therefore quality of audio playback is likely to be adversely affected.

Original recordings display the ‘Compact Disc Digital Audio’ logo. However, pirated copies may also bear this logo. To ensure your enjoyment of high quality sound reproduction, always purchase original recordings.

Loading a CD

To insert a disc into the player, make sure that the label side of the disc is facing upwards when you present the disc to the slot. Ease the disc into the slot a short distance, until the mechanism takes over and draws the disc in fully.

Error messages

When there is a problem with the CD player the head unit may display one of four error codes:

Error 00 - CD player cannot load the CD. Possible causes:

-A damaged CD was inserted.

-A CD that does not conform to the Redbook CD standard was inserted e.g. wrong shape or size.

-A foreign object was inserted and has damaged the CD mechanism.

Error 01 - CD player mechanism fault. Possible causes:

-The CD player is damaged and can no longer function.

Error 02 - CD player reading fault. The CD player cannot read data from the CD. Possible causes:

-Dirty or scratched CD.

-An incorrect format CD was inserted e.g. If the CD player is not equipped to play CDR MP3/WMA discs.

-CDR with paper label.

-Incorrectly compiled CD e.g. Corrupted data, unfinished CD writing session, incorrect "ripping" process used to make the CD.

-A CDR that does not conform to the Orangebook standard was inserted e.g. a non-compliant CDR that does not bear a recognised brand.

-The CD player has become too hot e.g. due to excessive heater usage.
