SECTION 1

Introduction

OWNER HANDBOOK

This handbook covers all current versions of Land Rover Discovery petrol and diesel models and, together with the Service Portfolio book, provides all the information 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 title page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and get to know your Discovery 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.

Introduction

SERVICE PORTFOLIO

The Service Portfolio book included in your literature pack contains important vehicle identification information, details of your entitlement under the terms of the Land Rover warranty, as well as useful consumer advice.

Most important of all, however, is the section on maintenance. This outlines the servicing requirements for your vehicle and also includes the First Service Voucher, and the service record slips, which the Dealer should sign and stamp to certify that the routine services have been carried out at the recommended intervals.

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.

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

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.

Always take careful note of warning information about the airbag SRS attached to the sun visor (illustrated above) or other parts of the vehicle.

Details of the vehicle’s standard ride height, both with and without an open sunroof are printed on the drivers sun visor.

VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (VIN)

If you need to communicate with a Land Rover dealer, you may be asked to quote the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

The VIN (and recommended maximum vehicle weights) is stamped on a plate riveted to the top of the radiator grille panel in the engine compartment (this should match the VIN recorded in the Service Portfolio book).

In addition, as a deterrent to car thieves and to assist the police, the VIN is stamped on a plate which is visible through the lowest part of the left side of the windscreen and also on the vehicle’s chassis.

Introduction

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 into a lay-by. 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 countries).

Consider evacuating passengers through nearside doors onto the verge as a precaution in case your vehicle is accidentally struck by other traffic.

Security Card

The security card, supplied with the literature pack, contains important emergency information. It is ESSENTIAL that you keep the card safe from theft and ensure that it is passed to the new owner if you sell the vehicle.

Key number: This is the number of the starter/door key - essential if you ever need to obtain a replacement.

Emergency key access code: You will need this code in order to start the vehicle if the handset has been lost or damaged (see ’Emergency key access’ in the ’Locks & alarm’ section).

Locking wheel nut number: If your vehicle has locking wheel nuts, you will have been provided with a special wheel nut socket to remove them. You will need to quote this number to obtain a replacement socket.

VIN (vehicle identification number): This identity number is unique to your vehicle and is essential proof of its specification. The number can also be found in various locations around the vehicle (see ’Vehicle Identification’ in Section 1).

Radio security code number: This unique code must be entered into the radio whenever the power supply has been disconnected. Without this code, the radio unit will not operate (see ’Security code’ in the ’In-Car Entertainment’ book).

WARNING

Never leave the security card inside the vehicle when it is unattended.

Memorise the emergency key access code, or keep the card on your person while driving, in case of emergencies.

10

Locks & Alarm

ALARM SYSTEM

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 USING THE REMOTE HANDSET (except when passengers are to be left inside or if it is necessary to leave a window or sunroof open).

LOCKING

With the remote handset:

Press the lock (padlock symbol) button once:

-all doors are superlocked (see

’Superlocking’)

-engine immobilised

-perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors, bonnet and taildoor)

-interior space protection activated

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

With the key:

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

-all doors locked (not superlocked)

-engine immobilised

-perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors, bonnet and taildoor)

-NO INTERIOR SPACE PROTECTION

The direction indicator lights flash once to confirm that the vehicle is secure and the anti-theft alarm indicator light (in the instrument panel) starts to flash.

UNLOCKING

With the remote handset:

Press the unlock (Land Rover) button once to disarm the alarm and unlock the driver’s door only (see ’Single point entry’).

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

In either case, the direction indicator lights flash once and the interior lights illuminate.

With the key:

While the doors can be unlocked using the key, this method is NOT RECOMMENDED - depending on the specification of the vehicle the alarm may not be disarmed.

NOTE: If the handset does not operate after the vehicle has been parked for a long period, unlock the driver’s door with the key and then try again. If the handset still fails to operate, enter the EKA code using the procedure shown later in this section.

11

Locks & Alarm

WARNING

For safety, NEVER use Superlocking if passengers are to remain inside the vehicle - in an emergency they would not be able to escape.

H2467

Using the remote handset

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 within a few feet of the vehicle.

Superlocking

Provided all the doors are fully closed, the Superlocking feature is activated automatically whenever the vehicle is locked using the remote handset. 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.

Note that locking with the key will not activate superlocking.

H2546

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

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

When the vehicle is locked:

The light flashes rapidly while the alarm is arming itself. After ten seconds, the light 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 light flashes slowly until the engine is remobilised.

If the alarm has been triggered:

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

If the remote handset battery power is low:

The light will flash rapidly for ten seconds after the handset has been used when the driver’s door is opened.

12

Locks & Alarm

Mislock

If the driver’s door is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound once, indicating a mislock. In this case, none of the doors will lock and the alarm system will not be armed.

If a passenger door or other aperture is not fully closed when the handset lock button is pressed, the alarm sounder or vehicle horn will sound once, indicating a mislock.

However, the ’partial arming’ attributes of the security system will enable as much of the system to be armed as possible (all fully closed door or bonnet apertures will be protected, but an open door will not!). As soon as the open aperture is closed, the system will automatically revert to a fully armed state.

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

NOTE: Your Land Rover dealer can disable the mislock audible warning.

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.

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

Headlight courtesy delay (if fitted)

When locking the vehicle, the remote handset can be used to illuminate the headlights for 30 seconds. At night this will make it easier for you to unlock the garage, or walk to your house in safety. Operate this feature at the same time as you lock the car, by keeping the handset LOCK button pressed for more than 2 seconds (the doors lock and alarm system arms in the usual way).

To extinguish the lights before the 30 second illumination period has expired, press the lock button again.

NOTE: This feature can be disabled by a Land Rover dealer.

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, press a second time (within one minute) to unlock the remaining doors.

NOTE: This feature can be disabled by a Land Rover dealer.

13

Locks & Alarm

H2468

Interior space protection

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

Using the handset:

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

Key operation:

Using the key will NOT activate (or deactivate) interior space protection.

NOTE: The feature cannot be activated if a door is open, or if the starter switch is turned on.

WARNING

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.

Speed-related locking (if fitted)

This security feature locks all the doors automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 4 mph (7 km/h), and unlocks the doors as soon as the starter switch is turned off (provided the doors had previously been locked by the speed related feature).

Note that this feature is not selectable by the driver, and that operation of the door locks by any other means (interior locking switch on the fascia panel, for example) will disable the speed-related locking function for the remainder of the journey, or until the starter switch is turned off and on again.

NOTE: This feature can be selected or deselected by a Land Rover dealer.

14

Locks & Alarm

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 and prevents the engine from being started unless the GENUINE handset 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.

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 will be re-mobilised automatically whenever the genuine handset key is inserted into the starter switch and turned to position ’II’.

EMERGENCY KEY ACCESS

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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When entering a code:

ENSURE each key movement is carried out with care and precision and turned to the full extent of its travel.

After turning the key to either the lock or unlock positions, make sure it is FULLY returned to the centre (vertical) position.

An interval of 10 seconds or more between key turns, or the key being held in a locked or unlocked position for 5 seconds or more will cancel an entry attempt, in which case you must start again with operation 1.

1.Ensure that all doors are closed, then using the key turn the driver’s door lock to

the UNLOCK position (towards the front of the car)

and hold in this position for at least 5 seconds until the alarm sounder sounds once). Then return the key to the centre position. It is now possible to use the key to enter the separate numerical values of the four numbers that make up the emergency key access code.

2. Enter the FIRST number of the code. If the first number is 4, turn the key (towards the front of the car) to the UNLOCK position 4 times.

Ensure the key is FULLY returned to the centre position after each turn.

15

Locks & Alarm

3. Enter the SECOND number of the code. If the second number is 3, turn the key (towards the rear) to the LOCK position 3 times.

Remember; the key must be FULLY returned to the centre position after each turn.

4. Enter the THIRD number of the code. If the third number is 12, turn the key to the UNLOCK position twelve times, ensuring that the key is

FULLY returned to the centre position after each turn.

5. Enter the FOURTH number of the code. If the fourth number is 1, turn the key to the LOCK position once. Ensure the key is FULLY

returned to the centre position.

6. Finally, turn the key to the unlock position once more. If the code has been entered correctly, a double ’bleep’ will sound (a single ’bleep’

indicates that the code has been entered incorrectly).

NOTE: If the Mislock audible warning has been deselected (by a Land Rover dealer), the alarm sounder will not sound when an EKA code has been entered. Instead, the alarm indicator light on the instrument panel will flash once (for one second) to indicate a successful code entry.

There is now a five minute delay before the alarm and engine immobiliser are deactivated.

DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR OR ATTEMPT TO ENTER THE VEHICLE YET!

7. Through the driver’s door window, observe the anti-theft alarm indicator light on the instrument panel. If code entry was successful, this light will continue flashing (once every two seconds) for the five minute delay period.

DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR OR ATTEMPT TO ENTER THE CAR until the full delay period has elapsed - this will be indicated by the anti-theft alarm indicator light extinguishing.

8. Now open the door, insert the key into the starter and turn the switch to position ’II’ IMMEDIATELY! If the starter switch is not turned to position ’II’ within 30 seconds of the indicator light extinguishing, the engine will automatically immobilise again.

If an incorrect code has been entered:

If an incorrect code has been entered, the alarm sounder will sound once and the anti-theft alarm indicator light will continue to flash. In this case, return to operation ’1’ and re-enter the code.

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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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.

H2794

REMOTE HANDSET 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:

A gradual deterioration in range and performance.

The alarm indicator light in the instrument panel will flash rapidly for 10 seconds after the driver’s door is opened.

Always fit a Land Rover STC 4080 or a Panasonic CR2032 replacement battery (available from a Land Rover dealer) and adopt the following replacement procedure:

1)With the handset face down, insert the blade of a small flat-bladed screwdriver into the slot at the rear of the handset (see inset) and prise the back upwards.

2)Insert the screwdriver blade as shown in the right hand inset and then carefully slide it along the joint towards the key to release the back of the handset.

3)Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to prise the battery from its mounting (see illustration), taking care to avoid touching the circuit board or the metal battery contacts.

4)Fit the new battery, ensuring that correct polarity is maintained (’+’ side facing up). Finger marks will adversely affect battery life; if possible, avoid touching the flat surfaces of the battery and wipe them clean before fitting.

5)Press the two halves of the handset firmly together and ensure that both halves are fully joined to prevent dirt or moisture from entering the handset.

The handset is now ready for use.

WARNING

The handset 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.

17

Locks & Alarm

KEY AND HANDSET NUMBERS

You have been supplied with two remote handsets with integral keys which operate all locks.

The key number is stamped on a tag attached to the key ring. Check that the key number has been entered in the space provided on your Security card.

If the remote handset is lost, contact a Land Rover dealer, who can supply replacement units.

WARNING

Keep the Security card and spare handset in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE!

Interior door handles and door sill locking buttons

From inside the vehicle, each door can be individually locked by depressing the appropriate door sill button. However, doors cannot be unlocked by raising the sill button.

Use the door handles to unlock, as follows:

-First operation of the door handle unlocks the door.

-Second operation of the door handle opens the door.

H2555

Interior locking switch

This is a personal security feature which allows the driver to lock (or unlock) all the doors from inside the vehicle (while driving or with the vehicle stationary). Press the lower part of the switch to lock (the alarm will not be armed), and the upper part to unlock.

NOTE: If the locks have already been superlocked, the switch will not release the locks.

Locks & Alarm

CHILD-PROOF LOCKS

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

With the child-proof locks engaged, neither the rear doors nor the taildoor can be opened from inside the vehicle, thereby avoiding the risk of a door being opened accidentally while the vehicle is moving.

WARNING

NEVER leave children unsupervised in the vehicle.

DOOR LOCKING CUT-OFF SWITCH

An inertia switch, operational only with the starter switch in position ’II’ and the alarm disarmed, prevents the doors centrally locking (or if the doors are locked, will unlock them) in the event of an accident or sudden impact.

When the switch operates, the direction indicator lights flash (if market permits), until the system is reset by turning the starter switch on and off, and opening and closing the driver’s door.

Note that doors cannot be locked again until the switch is reset.

The inertia switch also cuts off the fuel supply (see ’Fuel cut-off switch’).

WARNING

Always check for fuel leaks before resetting the switch!

With the starter switch turned on and the engine running, press the switches to operate the heating elements in either the driver’s or front passenger seat (the indicator light in the switch illuminates). Press a second time to switch off.

The seat heaters are thermostatically controlled and operate intermittently to achieve and then maintain a predetermined temperature between 79° F and 97° F

(26° - 36° C).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The seat heaters consume considerable power from the battery. For this reason, they should ONLY be operated while the engine is running.

FOLDING THE REAR SEATS

WARNING

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

One or both parts of the split rear seat can be either partially or fully folded to increase the rear loadspace.

1.To release either part of the backrest, lift the lever shown in the inset, and then fold the backrest onto the seat base.

2.Ensure the outer head restraints are fully lowered, the armrest is stowed and the centre head restraint is removed.

3.To release the seat base, pull the release strap upward (arrowed in illustration). With backrest and seat base released, the assembly can be folded forward as shown.

H2549

Returning the seat to the upright position

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, check and physically test the latching mechanism to ensure that both seat base and backrest are secure before driving.

Preventing chafing

 

When the larger portion (or whole) of the seat

 

is fully folded, some chafing may occur

 

between the seat and the cubby box (note that

 

this is most likely to occur when the front

 

seats are adjusted fully forward). If chafing is

 

apparent, risk of damage to the seat cover can

 

be reduced by fitting the securing strap as

 

shown.

 

The strap can be found in the tool bag in the

 

tail door storage pocket.

 

1. Fold the backrest forward.

H3053

2. Fit one end of the strap to the press-stud

 

fastening on the underside of the seat

base (it will be necessary to partially raise the seat base in order to visually locate the fastening).

3. Stretch the strap around the folded seat assembly and secure the free end to the press-stud fastener on the rear of the backrest.

Compressing the folded seat assembly in this way should alleviate chafing and any subsequent damage to the seat cover when the seat is folded fully.

Seat belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

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.

Observe the following precautions:

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

ALWAYS adjust seat belts 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.

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 wear seat belts over hard, sharp or fragile items in clothing, such as pens, keys, spectacles etc.

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

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.

DO NOT use a seat belt that is twisted or obstructed in any way that could impede its smooth operation.

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 25 degrees from the upright (vertical) position.

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

In most countries, all occupants are required by law to wear a seat belt, unless they have been issued with a medical exemption certificate.

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.

WARNING

The airbag supplementary 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.

30

Seat belts

H2488

H2491

Fastening the seat belts

Inertia reel belts are fitted to all front and rear seating positions, and also to the occasional rear seats (where fitted).

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.

Releasing the belt

Press the RED button on the seat belt buckle.

Upper anchorage adjustment (front seats only)

The height of the seat belt upper anchorage can be adjusted for comfort AND safety. Squeeze the control between finger and thumb to raise or lower 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.

Ensure the anchorage has ’clicked’ into one of the locked positions before driving.

Where possible, 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.

Seat belts

Child seats

The seat belts fitted to your vehicle are designed for adults and larger children. For their safety, it is very important that all infants and young children are restrained in a suitable child safety seat appropriate to their age and size. Safety seats approved for use in your vehicle are available from your Land Rover dealer.

Only fit a child seat that has been approved for use in your vehicle, and ensure the manufacturer’s fitting instructions are followed exactly.

Vehicles fitted with a passenger airbag:

For optimum safety, children should travel in the rear of the vehicle at all times. However, if a passenger airbag is fitted and 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. DO NOT use a rear facing child seat - an inflating airbag could impact with the seat and cause serious injury to the child!

The above symbol affixed to the passenger side fascia panel 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 to a child in the event of an airbag deployment.

WARNING

DO NOT install a rearward facing child seat in a passenger seat equipped with an airbag system. Failure to follow this advice could result in serious injury, or even death for the child.

32

Seat belts

Seat belt locking mechanism

All front passenger and second row seat belts have a special locking mechanism which aids the retention of child seats. The procedure to install a child seat is as follows:

1.Install the child seat in the vehicle, attach the seat belt and secure the buckle in accordance with the manufacturers fitting instructions.

2.Pull on the shoulder section of the belt to unreel all of the remaining webbing to the limit of its travel. This will engage the automatic locking feature, which then acts as a ratchet, allowing the webbing to retract ONLY.

3.Allow the seat belt to retract onto the child seat (a ’clicking’ sound will confirm that the ratchet has engaged), firmly pushing the child seat into the seat.

4.Ensure there is no slack in the seat belt by pulling upwards on the shoulder belt immediately above the child restraint. The seat belt should now be locked and the child seat held firmly in position.

Once the child seat is removed and all the seat belt webbing is allowed to retract, the seat belt locking mechanism reverts to normal operation.

NOTE: The automatic locking mechanism should also be used when securing large items of luggage to a seat.

33

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 ’Airbag SRS’). 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.

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.

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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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

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

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 dealer.

34

Seat belts

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 & vehicle care’).

Testing inertia reel belts

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

2.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.

3.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.

35

Airbag SRS

The airbag supplementary restraint system (SRS) (when fitted) provides additional protection for either the driver, or the driver and front seat passenger, in the event of a severe frontal impact on the vehicle.

Always remember; the airbag is a supplementary restraint system that provides ADDITIONAL protection in a frontal impact only - it does NOT replace the need to wear a seat belt. For maximum safety protection in all crash situations, a seat belt must be worn.

Airbag SRS warning light

 

A warning light mounted on the instrument

 

panel will alert you to any malfunction of the

 

airbag SRS. The airbag SRS should always be

 

checked by a dealer if any of the following

 

symptoms occur:

 

• 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

H2474

starter switch is turned to position ’II’.

 

 

• The warning light illuminates after the

 

engine is started, or while the vehicle is

 

being driven.

36

Airbag SRS

How the airbag SRS works

The airbag supplementary restraint system (SRS) includes either: a single airbag module (mounted in the steering wheel centre pad) for the driver, or twin airbag modules (where shown in illustration) to protect both the driver and the front seat passenger.

In the event of a frontal collision, a sensor monitors the force of the impact to determine whether the airbag SRS should be activated.

If the impact is sufficiently severe, the system causes each airbag to inflate. Inflation is instantaneous and accompanied by a loud noise. Also evident may be traces of smoke and powder, neither of which are injurious or indicative of a malfunction of the airbag.

After inflation, the driver’s airbag will immediately deflate, thereby ensuring that visibility is not impaired.

NOTE: An airbag will not inflate as a result of heavy braking, minor bumps or potholes.

WARNING

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries. Minimise 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.

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

H2551

37

Airbag SRS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Even with airbag SRS equipment fitted, seat belts must ALWAYS be worn because:

An airbag will only provide protection in severe frontal collisions. NO protection is afforded against the effects of side or rear impacts, roll over accidents, or minor frontal impacts.

Inflation and deflation take place very quickly and will not provide protection against the effects of secondary impacts that can occur during multiple vehicle collisions.

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

NEVER attach accessory items to an airbag module cover, 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 to the occupants.

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 in close proximity to, an airbag module while the vehicle is in motion.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

CHILD SEATS: Do not install a rearward facing child seat in a passenger seat equipped with an airbag system. Failure to follow this advice could result in serious injury, or even death for the child.

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

38

Airbag SRS

Service information

After ten years from the original date of registration (or the installation date of a replacement airbag SRS), some components will need to be replaced by a Land Rover dealer (note the ’airbag module replacement date’ shown on page 2 of the Service Portfolio book).

In addition, ALWAYS contact your dealer if:

an airbag inflates.

the front of the vehicle is damaged, even if the airbag has not inflated.

any part of an airbag module cover (the steering wheel centre pad or fascia panel) shows signs of cracking or damage.

WARNING

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

Disposing of vehicles

If you sell your vehicle, be sure to inform the new owner that the vehicle has an airbag SRS. In addition, make sure the new owner is aware of the airbag module replacement date shown on page 2 of the Service Portfolio book.

If your vehicle is to be scrapped; uninflated airbags are potentially very dangerous and must be safely deployed in a controlled environment by qualified personnel, before a vehicle is scrapped.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The components that make up the airbag SRS are sensitive to electrical or physical interference, either of which could easily damage the system and cause inadvertent operation or a malfunction of the airbag.

For your safety it is recommended that you seek the assistance of a Land Rover dealer to carry out any of the following:

Removal or repair of any wiring or component in the vicinity of any of the SRS components (yellow wiring harness), including the steering wheel, steering column, instrument and fascia panels.

Installation of electronic equipment such as a mobile phone, two-way radio or in-car entertainment system.

Modification to the front of the vehicle, including the bumper and chassis.

Attachment of accessories to the front of the vehicle.

window to disperse ice, mist and rain.

 

Manual operation:

H2475

Some vehicles are equipped with manually

 

controlled mirrors, where the mirror glasses

 

must be adjusted by hand to the required

 

position.

41

Door mirrors

Folding the mirror body

The door mirrors are designed to fold forwards or rearwards on impact. They can also be folded back towards the side windows into a ’park’ position to enable the vehicle to negotiate narrower openings.

Manual operation:

On some vehicles this operation can be carried out manually by physically pushing the mirror bodies back towards the side windows, and then pulling them back into the normal (extended) positions.

Electric operation:

On some vehicles mirror folding can be carried out electrically as follows:

H2981

1.

Ensure the mirror control is turned to the

 

 

centre position.

 

2.

With the starter switch turned to position

 

 

’II’, push the control down once to fold the

 

 

mirrors back towards the side windows.

 

3.

Before driving, push the control down a

 

 

second time to return the mirrors to their

 

 

normal (extended) position.

If the mirrors are accidentally knocked out of position (i.e. with one mirror extended and the other in the ’parked’ position), an additional operation of the switch will re-synchronise them.

1. Temperature gauge

Once the engine coolant has reached its normal operating temperature, the pointer will rise to a position within the WHITE segment of the gauge (the precise position will vary according to climatic conditions).

If the pointer moves towards the RED segment, this indicates that the engine coolant is becoming too hot. Should the pointer move INTO the RED segment and the RED warning light within the gauge illuminates, severe engine damage could occur (under these circumstances, the air conditioning may switch off and engine performance may reduce in order to minimise engine load).

Stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and allow the engine to idle for five minutes in order to cool down - DO NOT SWITCH OFF. Seek qualified assistance before continuing.

4.Total distance (odometer) and trip recorder

With the starter switch turned to position ’II’, the display indicates the total distance travelled by the vehicle, and also shows the most recent individual journey distance.

In some markets, the display can be set to show either miles or kilometres. To convert from one to another, press and hold the trip recorder reset button for more than two seconds.

NOTE: On automatic gearbox vehicles the display also indicates which selector position is selected.

5. Trip recorder reset button

Press briefly to return the trip recorder display to zero.

6. Fuel gauge

The pointer drops to zero when the starter switch is turned off, but quickly rises to show the level of fuel in the tank when the switch is turned to position ’II’. After refuelling, the gauge rapidly rises to reflect the increase of fuel in the tank.

When the fuel remaining in the tank is a minimum of 3 gallons (14 litres) on petrol vehicles, or 2 gallons (9 litres) on diesel vehicles, the AMBER low fuel warning light in the fuel gauge illuminates. If the light illuminates, refuel at the first opportunity.

The small arrow visible below the fuel pump symbol on the gauge indicates the side of the vehicle on which the fuel filler is located - a useful reminder to help you position the vehicle on the correct side of the forecourt pumps before refuelling.

WARNING

NEVER allow petrol engined models to run out of fuel (the resultant misfire may destroy the catalytic converter).

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 light should extinguish when the handbrake is fully released or shortly after the electrical circuits are switched on. If the light 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.

Low oil pressure - RED The light illuminates as a bulb

check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’ and extinguishes when the engine is started. If the light 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 light illuminates.

45

Warning lights

Transmission oil temperature

- RED (if fitted)

Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’ and extinguishes after 3 seconds approx. If the light 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 light illuminates, reduce speed. If the light remains on, stop the vehicle and allow the gearbox to cool. Do not drive until the light has extinguished. (Depending on the ambient temperature and the carrying loads imposed on the vehicle, it may take several minutes before the light extinguishes and it is safe to drive).

Anti-lock braking system - AMBER

The light illuminates as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’. If the light illuminates whilst driving or remains illuminated after the starter switch is turned on, a fault has occurred. This means that full ABS control may not be available and you should seek qualified assistance urgently.

NOTE: Faults which cause the ABS light to illuminate after the initial system checks, or whilst driving, will be accompanied by a warning chime sounding 3 times.

Headlight main beam - BLUE Illuminates when the headlights are switched to main beam.

Direction indicators - GREEN The left or right warning light

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

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

Trailer direction indicators - GREEN

The light illuminates briefly as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position II. If a trailer is attached, the light illuminates in conjunction with the vehicle direction indicator lights to show that all trailer indicator lights are functioning correctly. In the event of a bulb failure on the trailer, the warning light remains off.

switch is turned to position ’II’. Wait for the light to extinguish before starting the engine.

46

Warning lights

Differential lock - RED Illuminates whenever the differential is locked.

While carrying out maintenance operations on your vehicle, it may be necessary for the dealer to lock the differential between the front and rear axles. This will cause the warning light to illuminate.

The dealer should always unlock the differential before returning the vehicle to the owner. However, if the light illuminates when the starter switch is turned on, this indicates that this has not been done. The vehicle should not be driven in this condition because ABS performance will be impaired and Traction Control will be disabled. Contact your dealer immediately and ask for the differential to be unlocked.

Battery charging - RED The light 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.

Seat belt - RED (if fitted)

The light illuminates when the starter switch is turned to

position ’II’ and extinguishes after approximately 6 seconds, even if the driver’s seat belt remains unfastened. In some markets illumination of the light will be accompanied by a warning chime (see ’Audible warnings’).

Hill descent control (HDC) ’information’ - GREEN Illuminates briefly as a bulb and

system check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’ and also when HDC is selected.

If HDC is selected when Low Range gears are engaged the light will illuminate continuously indicating that HDC is active.

When HDC is selected and non-operating gears are engaged (i.e. High range), the light will flash to inform the driver that HDC is selected, but will not operate.

If the light starts to flash while HDC is active, normal functionality may seize and HDC ’fade out’ may be induced (see ’Hill Descent Control’).

Hill descent control (HDC) ’failure’ - AMBER

The light illuminates briefly as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’.

If the light illuminates at any other time, either a fault has occurred which affects the functionality of the system, or over-use of the system has been detected, in which case HDC may ’fade out’ (see ’Hill Descent Control’).

NOTE: Faults which cause the HDC ’failure’ light to illuminate after the initial system checks, or whilst driving, will be accompanied by a warning chime sounding 3 times.

47

Warning lights

Traction Control - AMBER

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

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

If the light illuminates continuously, and remains illuminated when the vehicle is stationary, a fault with the system is indicated; seek qualified assistance.

NOTE: Faults which cause the light to illuminate after the initial system checks, or whilst driving, will be accompanied by a warning chime sounding 3 times.

Active cornering enhancement (ACE) - RED/AMBER (if fitted)

The light illuminates RED when the starter switch is turned to position ’II’. After two seconds, the RED illumination changes to AMBER, and after a further two seconds, the light extinguishes.

If illumination occurs while driving, a fault with the system is indicated, as follows:

If the light shows RED (a flashing red light which changes to constant illumination after two minutes, and is accompanied by a warning chime):

This indicates a system fault that may result in serious damage to vehicle components and reduced ACE performance. Stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits and switch off the engine. DO NOT CONTINUE DRIVING! Seek qualified assistance immediately.

If the light shows AMBER (constant illumination).

This indicates a system fault that will result in reduced ACE performance but will not leave the vehicle in a dangerous condition. You may continue driving, but reduce speed, take additional care, and consult a Land Rover dealer at the earliest opportunity.

Fuel filter - AMBER (diesel only) Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to

position ’II’ and extinguishes after 3 seconds approximately. If the light illuminates while driving, this indicates the presence of excessive amounts of water in the fuel. You may continue driving but should seek qualified assistance at the earliest convenient time.

Off Road - AMBER (if fitted)

Illuminates briefly as a bulb and system check when the starter

switch is turned to position ’II’ and then extinguishes.

If the off-road switch is pressed:

The light flashes continually while the rear of the vehicle is either; rising to off-road height, or returning to standard ride height. The light illuminates constantly while the suspension remains at off-road height.

In addition, the light will flash if extended mode is induced.
