Owner's Handbook

This handbook, together with the Passport to Service 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 particular aspect of driving or caring for 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 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.

IMPORTANT

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.

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.

Locks & Alarm

KEYS AND HANDSETS

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 required, additional handsets can be programmed into the system by your dealer.

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

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

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The handset complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions:

This device may not cause harmful interference.

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This applies to both alarm receivers and handset transmitters.

Any changes or modifications to the handset not expressly approved by the manufacturer or Land Rover North America could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.

Transmitter FCC ID: N5FVALTX3

Receiver FCC ID: N5VALTR3

ALARM SYSTEM

All Discovery vehicles are fitted with a sophisticated electronic anti-theft alarm system. Some vehicles are equipped with a number of additional security features, some of which are selectable options and some are standard features. 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.

Using the remote handset

H2467

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.

15

Locks & Alarm

Locking

With the remote handset:

Press the lock (padlock symbol) button once:

all doors are locked

engine immobilised

perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors, hood and taildoor)

The direction indicator lights flash once to confirm that the vehicle is secure and the antitheft 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

engine immobilised

perimetric alarm activated (protects the doors, hood and taildoor)

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 all the doors or, if single point entry is enabled, the driver's door only (also see ‘Single point entry (if enabled)’, page 18).

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

With the key:

In addition to remote handset operation, the door can be unlocked and the alarm disarmed manually using the key.

Superlocking (if enabled)

Superlocking provides greater security by immobilising 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.

Provided all the doors are fully closed; Superlocking is activated by pressing the handset lock button twice within one second or turning the door lock to the lock position with the key twice within one second.

The direction indicator lights will flash three times after superlocking has been activated and once after superlocking has been de-activated.

WARNING

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

16

Locks & Alarm

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

H2546

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.

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 hood 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 features will not be activated.

The mislock audible warning can be disabled by a Land Rover dealer.

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.

17

Single point entry can be disabled by a Land Rover dealer.

Locks & Alarm

Headlight courtesy delay (if enabled)

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.

The headlight courtesy delay can be disabled by a Land Rover dealer.

Single point entry (if enabled)

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.

Interior locking switch

H2633

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.

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.

18

Locks & Alarm

Speed-related locking*

This security feature locks all the doors automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 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 speed-related locking 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.

Speed related locking can be selected or deselected by a Land Rover dealer.

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).

NOTE: 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.

Battery replacement

H2794

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.

Locks & Alarm

CHILD-PROOF LOCKS

DOOR LOCKING CUT-OFF SWITCH

 

 

 

 

H2464

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

TO AVOID INJURY OR DEATH, NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN UNSUPERVISED IN THE VEHICLE.

H2574

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’, page 97).

WARNING

Always check for fuel leaks before resetting the switch!

Activating the switch when the fuel system has been damaged (evidenced by fuel leakage or fuel odor) will cause additional fuel leakage increasing the risk of fire and personal injury.

Seats

POWER OPERATED FRONT SEATS

WARNING

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

The seat adjustment controls are situated on the side of the centrally mounted cubby box.

Seat adjustment is only possible when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ or for 45 seconds after opening the driver's door.

Forward/backward adjustment

H2623

Push and hold the switch forwards or backwards to move the seat to the desired position.

Seat cushion angle adjustment

H2624

Twist the switch to tilt the seat cushion to the desired position. Note that the front and rear of the switch work independently - the front raising or lowering the front of the cushion, the rear of the switch similarly controlling the rear of the seat cushion.

22

Seats

Seat cushion height adjustment

Seat back adjustment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

H2625

On the driver's seat only, the height of the seat cushion can be adjusted. Push the switch up or down to raise or lower the cushion.

Lumbar support adjustment

H2626

Push the switch up to increase support to the lumbar region of the back. Lower the switch to reduce lumbar support.

H2627

Twist the switch forward or backward until the desired seat back angle is achieved.

WARNING

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt with the seat back angle set to approximately 15 degrees from the upright (vertical).

Failure to maintain the correct seat back angle will reduce the effectiveness of the seat belts and increase the risk of serious injury or death in a crash.

23

Seats

HEAD RESTRAINTS

FOLDING ARMRESTS*

H2465

Pull the head restraint up or down until the cushion is level with the back of the head.

WARNING

Head restraints are designed to support the back of the head (NOT THE NECK), and to restrain rearward movement of the head in the event of a collision. The restraint must be positioned level with the head to be effective.

DO NOT drive or carry passengers with the head restraints removed from occupied seats.

Failure to have the head restraint installed and properly positioned will increase the potential for serious injuries.

Head restraint removal

Turn both mounting collars fully anti-clockwise and pull the restraint upwards to remove.

After replacing a head restraint turn the mounting collars clockwise.

H2553

Some vehicles are fitted with adjustable front seat armrests, which can be either stowed vertically in line with the seat backrest when not required, or folded horizontally to serve as an arm/elbow rest.

The height/angle of each armrest can be adjusted by turning the knob set into the end of the armrest: clockwise to raise and anti-clockwise to lower.

24

Seats

HEATED FRONT SEATS*

FOLDING THE REAR SEATS

H2517

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.

H2493

WARNING

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

Vehicle movement may cause the unlatched seat to suddenly shift, potentially causing injury.

One or both parts of the split rear seat can be either partially or fully folded to further increase the rear loadspace, using the following instructions:

25

Seats

H2549

1.Remove the loadspace cover (see

‘LOADSPACE COVER’, page 81).

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

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

4.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.

5.Ensure the loadspace cover is stowed in the rear passenger seat footwell, under the stowed seat.

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). Ensure that any head restraints which were removed, are repositioned before driving the vehicle. Finally, refit the loadspace cover.

WARNING

After the seat is returned to the upright position, the latching mechanism should be checked and physically tested to ensure that both the seat base and backrest are secure before driving.

In a frontal impact, if the rear seat is not secured (fully latched), it may swing forward contacting the seat in front of it increasing the risk of injury or death to occupants in those seats.

Seats

Preventing chafing

H3053

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.

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.

OCCASIONAL REAR SEATS*

NOTE: The occasional rear seats are fitted with an interlock that prevents the seat back from being raised if the seat is not latched to the floor properly.

WARNING

For safety, before driving with passengers seated in the occasional rear seats, ensure that all occupants are properly restrained. Otherwise occupants seated in these seats will be subjected to a greater risk of injury or death in a crash or rollover.

Do not carry passengers in the occasional rear seats if a dog guard is fitted between the second row of seats and the loadspace. Otherwise occupants of these seats may impact with the dog guard in the event of a crash or rollover increasing the risk of injury.

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

WARNING

Seat belts are life saving equipment. In a collision, occupants not wearing a seat belt will be thrown around inside, or possibly thrown out of the vehicle. This is likely to result in more serious injuries than would have been the case had a seat belt been worn. It may even result in loss of life!

Don't take chances with safety!

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

The airbag supplemental 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.

DO use the seat belts to secure items of luggage that are to be carried on the seats - in the event of an accident, loose items become flying missiles capable of causing serious injury, or even death.

WARNING

DO NOT fit more than one person into a belt; this could result in the occupants striking each other and causing injury in the event of a crash.

DO NOT use, or attempt to fit, a seat belt that is twisted or obstructed in any way that could impede its smooth operation. If a belt is twisted, it must be straightened before use. Using a twisted or obstructed seat belt could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

ALWAYS use the seat belt lock (buckle) nearest the wearer. If the belt is locked in the wrong place, the seat belt will not fit correctly and may ride up over the abdomen, causing serious internal injury in a crash.

30

Seat Belts

WEARING SEAT BELTS CORRECTLY

Fastening the seat belts

WARNING

Maladjustment of the seat belt could reduce its effectiveness in a crash, thereby increasing the risk of serious injury or death.

H2488

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

Draw 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.

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

Adjust the seat belt 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. Also, ensure that the lap belt fits as low on the hips as possible and that the shoulder belt passes across the shoulder without slipping off or pressing on the neck.

Positioning the belt

WARNING

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.

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 travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit from the seat belt is obtained with the seat back set to an angle of 15 degrees from the upright. Seat belts are only effective when they are properly positioned on the body - a steeply reclined seat could allow a passenger to slip under either the shoulder or the lap belt.

DO NOT wear the shoulder belt under your arm. In an accident this could increase your chances of being injured.

31

Seat Belts

Wearing seat belts during pregnancy

The seat belts have been designed for all adults, including pregnant women. In a crash situation any occupant is less likely to be injured while correctly restrained by a seat belt. However, pregnant women should wear the lap belt as low on the hips as possible to avoid pressure on the abdomen.

Women should consult their doctor to establish the best use of seat belts during pregnancy.

Upper anchorage adjustment (front seats only)

H2491

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.

Misadjustment of the seat belt could reduce its effectiveness in a crash. Always ensure that the anchorage is correctly located in one of the height 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.

For children and young adults, where the seat belt cannot be properly positioned, the use of a booster seat appropriate to the age and size of the occupant is recommended.

Releasing the belt

Press the RED button on the seat belt buckle.

32

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 ‘HOW THE AIRBAG SRS WORKS’, page 40). 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, with the use of factory-specified parts, should ONLY be carried out by a Land Rover retailer.

CARING FOR SEAT BELTS

WARNING

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

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

DO NOT bleach or dye the webbing. Clean the webbing using warm water and non-detergent soap only - allow to dry naturally and DO NOT retract or use the belts until they are completely dry.

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

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.

33

Child Restraints

CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR SMALL CHILDREN AND BABIES

Infants and children too small for adult seat belts should be restrained in a child safety seat or restraint system appropriate to their age and/or size, and which is approved for use in your vehicle.

Child seats and restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts (or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt). Some child restraint systems also incorporate a tether strap which can be attached to an anchorage point on the vehicle. Information about tether strap attachment points and the seat belt locking mechanism, which is used to restrain child seats and restraints is shown later in this section.

When fitting child seats and restraint systems, always ensure that the manufacturer's fitting instructions are followed exactly. Note that crash statistics show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear (2nd row) seating positions than in the front.

WARNING

DO NOT allow a baby or infant to be carried on the lap. The force of a crash can increase effective body weight by as much as 30 times, making it impossible to hold on to the child.

Young adults and 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.

Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle.

34

Child Restraints

Vehicles fitted with a passenger airbag

For optimum safety, children should travel in the rear of the vehicle at all times. However, if 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.

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

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A REARWARD FACING CHILD SEAT BE INSTALLED IN ANY FRONT PASSENGER SEAT POSITION. INFLATION OF THE AIRBAG COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO THE CHILD.

Seat belt locking mechanism

All front passenger and second row seat belts have a special locking mechanism which aids the securing of child restraints. The mechanism is used to secure a child restraint as follows:

1.Attach the seat belt to the child restraint in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

2.Insert the metal tongue of the seat belt into the lock ensuring that it engages with a 'click'.

3.Pull on the shoulder section of the belt until it is fully extended.

4.Allow the belt to retract. A 'clicking' sound will confirm that the mechanism has engaged.

5.Remove all slack from the mechanism, by pulling upwards on the shoulder belt, immediately above the child restraint.

6.Evaluate the tightness of the installation by rocking the child seat back and forth to ensure it is tight and stable.

7.If the child seat needs to be tightened further, remove the metal tongue of the seat belt from the buckle and feed some of the shoulder belt webbing back into the reel (thereby shortening the belt). Then reattach the metal tongue into the buckle (if the belt has been tightened correctly, this will take some effort).

8.Re-evaluate the tightness of the installation. If the child seat is still too loose, repeat the above procedure, making the belt incrementally shorter (and therefore tighter). It may be necessary to put your weight onto the seat (to compress the seat cushion) in order to fasten the belt.

To deactivate the locking mechanism, unlatch the seat belt and allow it to fully retract.

35

Child Restraints

Tether strap anchorages*

H3587

H3586

Provision is made for the fitting of up to three child seats or restraint systems in the rear (second row) seats, of the type that require tether strap anchorage points.

There are three tether strap anchorage points. These should be used to attach tether straps from child seats or restraint systems. Two anchorage points are fitted to the back of the second row seat, these should be used for the two outer seating positions. A third single anchorage point is located in the centre of the rear header rail (above the tail door) for attaching a tether strap from the centre seat position. The anchorage points are shown in the accompanying illustrations.

WARNING

Always follow the child seat or restraint system manufacturer’s instructions when fitting tether straps.

When fitting a child seat or restraint system, always pass the tether strap over the top of the seat back and beneath the underside of the head restraint.

If a child seat or restraint system is to be fitted in the centre seating position, the centre armrest must be in the stowed position (folded into the seat).

36

Airbag SRS

H2628

AIRBAG SRS

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

Provided the front seat occupants are correctly seated, with seat belts properly worn, the airbags will provide additional protection to the chest and facial areas in the event of the car receiving a severe frontal impact.

NOTE: Inflation and deflation of the airbags takes place very quickly and will not protect against the effects of secondary impacts that can occur during multiple vehicle collisions.

The airbags are located in the centre pad of the steering wheel and the fascia panel above the glovebox.

37

Feet, knees or any other part of the anatomy in contact with, or in close proximity to, an airbag cover.

Airbag SRS

To ensure correct deployment of the airbags, it is essential that obstructions are not allowed to intervene between an airbag and the occupant. The following are examples of the type of obstructions that could either, impede correct operation of the airbags, or jeopardise personal safety in the event of an airbag deployment:

Accessories attached to or obscuring an airbag cover.

Items of hand luggage, or other objects placed on an airbag cover.

WARNING

Always remember; the SRS/airbags are a supplemental restraint system providing ADDITIONAL protection in certain types of frontal impact collisions only - they DO NOT replace the need to wear a seat belt. To minimize the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash, all occupants in all seating positions including the driver, should always wear their seat belt whether or not an airbag is present in that seating position!

38

Airbag SRS

WARNING

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

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

An airbag will only provide additional protection in certain types of 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 instantaneously and will not provide protection against the effects of secondary impacts that can occur during multiple vehicle collisions.

WARNING

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

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries. THe injurious effects of airbag inflation can be minimized, by ensuring driver and passenger are seated correctly, with the seat moved back as far as is practical, and the seat belts worn correctly.

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 or death 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 close to, an airbag module whilst the vehicle is moving.

Activation of an airbag creates dust, causing possible breathing difficulties for asthma sufferers or other people with respiratory problems. If an airbag is activated, any occupant who suffers from brathing difficulties should; eiither leave the vehicle as quickly as possible, or obtain fresh air by fully opening the windows or doors.

Both fron seating positions are equipped with knee bolsters to provide knee protection in the event of an impact. DO NOT modify the bolsters, or mount after market equipment on or behind them.

39

Airbag SRS

Seating positions

In order to provide optimum protection in the event of a severe impact, it is necessary for the airbags to deploy with considerable speed.

An inflating airbag can cause facial abrasions and other injuries if the occupant is too close to the airbag at the time of its deployment.

WARNING

To minimize the risk of accidental injury from inflating airbags, seat belts should be correctly worn at all times. In addition, both driver and front seat passenger should adjust their seat to provide the maximum practical distance from the airbags.

Occupants not seated correctly in allocated seats are subject to serious injury or death upon airbag deployment.

Both front seating positions are equipped with knee bolsters to provide knee protection in the event of an impact. DO NOT modify the bolsters, or mount after market equipment on or behind them.

HOW THE AIRBAG SRS WORKS

In the event of a collision, the airbag control unit monitors the rate of deceleration or acceleration induced by the collision, to determine whether the airbags should be deployed.

Operation of the airbag SRS is dependent entirely on the rate at which the vehicle's passenger compartment changes speed as a result of a collision. The circumstances affecting different collisions (vehicle speed, angle of impact, type and size of object hit, for example), vary considerably and will affect the rate of acceleration or deceleration accordingly.

NOTE: The SRS/airbag is not designed to activate in all frontal impacts; most minor frontal impacts, heavy braking and driving over pot holes will not result in sufficient deceleration to cause the airbags to inflate. This does not indicate that there is a fault with the system. However, if as a result of an impact, you believe the airbags should have deployed and they failed to do so, please call 1(800)637-6837 for advice, or to arrange for a Land Rover representative to inspect the vehicle to determine whether the system operated correctly.

It follows, therefore, that significant superficial damage can occur without the airbags deploying or, conversely, that a relatively small amount of structural damage may cause the airbags to be deployed.

Airbags will only deploy when they are required to supplement the restraining force of the seat belts.

In the case of a severe frontal collision, both front airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners will be deployed.

40

The warning light illuminates after the engine is started, or while the vehicle is being driven.

Airbag SRS

H2474

Airbag inflation is virtually instantaneous and occurs with considerable force, accompanied by a loud noise. The inflated bag, together with the seat belt restraint system, limit the movement of a front seat occupant, thereby reducing the risk of injury to the head and upper torso.

When an airbag inflates, a fine powder is released. This is not an indication of a malfunction, however, the powder may cause irritation to the skin and should be thoroughly flushed from the eyes and any cuts or abrasions of the skin. After inflation the airbags deflate immediately. This provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupant and also ensures that the driver's forward vision is not impaired.

NOTE: After inflation, some airbag components are hot - DO NOT touch until they have cooled.

Airbag SRS warning light

Whenever the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’, the diagnostic control unit monitors the readiness of the system's electrical circuits. The elements of the system being monitored include:

SRS warning light

Rotary coupler

Airbag modules

Airbag diagnostic control unit

Airbag wiring harness

A warning light mounted on the instrument panel will alert you to any malfunction of the SRS/airbag. The system should always be checked by a dealer if any of the following symptoms occur. These indicate a fault, which may result in the SRS/airbag not operating as required in the event of a frontal impact.

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 starter switch is turned to position ‘II’.

41

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

Airbag SRS

CHILD SEATS

Children aged 12 years and under are more likely than adult occupants to receive injuries from inflating airbags. For this reason, it is recommended that children should always be seated in the second row of seats in a child safety seat or restraint system apporopriate to their age and size, see ‘CHILD RESTRAINTS FOR SMALL CHILDREN AND BABIES’, page 34.

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

WARNING

DO NOT USE A REAR FACING CHILD SEAT IN ANY FRONT PASSENGER SEAT LOCATION. If the passenger airbag inflates, a child in a rear facing child restraint could result in serious injury or death.

Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Be sure to install child restraints according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Under no circumstances should a rear facing child seat be installed facing forward in any seating position.

SERVICE INFORMATION

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.

Certain components of the SRS/airbag must be replaced by a Land Rover dealer after 10 years from the date of manufacture (shown on the certification plate on the rear face of the left hand front door).

In addition, ALWAYS contact your dealer if:

an airbag inflates.

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

42

Airbag SRS

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 such as a winch or brushbar.

Disposing of vehicles

If you sell your vehicle, be sure to inform the new owner that the vehicle has an SRS/airbag system, and make the new owner aware of the airbag module replacement date shown in the Passport to Service.

If the vehicle is to be scrapped; uninflated airbags are potentially very dangerous and must be safely deployed in a controlled environment before a vehicle is scrapped.

See your Land Rover retailer for advice on safe deployment of SRS/airbags.

43

Steering Column

STEERING COLUMN ADJUSTMENT

H2533

The angle of the steering column can be adjusted to suit your driving position:

1.With the vehicle stationary, push the locking lever up and hold in this position.

2.Move the steering wheel (up or down) into the desired position, making sure the instrument panel is clearly visible.

3.When adjustment is complete, release the locking lever to lock the steering column in position.

WARNING

DO NOT attempt to adjust the steering column while the vehicle is in motion. This is extremely dangerous and may result in the loss of control of the vehicle and personal injury!

44

Door Mirrors

EXTERIOR MIRRORS

NOTE: The right-hand mirror glass is convex. As a result, reflected images are closer than they appear.

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. 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 away again.

H2629

Turn the control to the select either the left or

‘L’ or ‘R’ position to right hand mirror.

With the starter switch turned to position ‘II’, push the control in the appropriate direction to tilt the mirror glass up/down/left or right.

When adjustment is complete, return the control to the OFF position (midway between ‘L’ and ‘R’).

NOTE: The door mirrors have integral heating elements which disperse ice or mist from the glass. The heating elements operate in conjunction with the heated rear window.

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 minimize 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.

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

CAUTION: Do not drive the vehicle while the low oil pressure light is illuminated.

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 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 parking brake 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.

WARNING

Drive with extreme caution if the warning light is illuminated - ABS may not be working!

Warning Lights

Headlight high 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.

Seat belt - RED

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’, page 53)

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.

Off Road - AMBER*

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.

Warning Lights

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 cease and HDC ‘fade out’ may be induced (see ‘HILL DESCENT CONTROL’, page 109).

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’, page 109).

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.

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.

Self-levelling suspension - AMBER*

Illuminates briefly as a bulb and system check when the starter

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

If the remote handset is operated:

The light flashes continually while the rear of the vehicle is being lowered, or raised.

If the light illuminates constantly:

A fault with the suspension is indicated. Seek qualified assistance as soon as possible.

While it is possible to continue driving the vehicle in this condition, this is not recommended as there is a considerable risk of causing further damage to the suspension. Preferably, the vehicle should be brought to a halt as soon as conditions allow. Further travel should be limited to reaching the nearest Land Rover dealer, or driving to a place of safety while awaiting recovery. In any event, speed must be restricted to a rate that will guarantee a smooth, and totally bump-free, ride at all times, ideally traversing only smooth roads.

51

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.

Warning Lights

Active cornering enhancement (ACE) - RED/AMBER*

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.

Manual mode - GREEN

Illuminates for 3 seconds as a bulb check when the starter switch is

turned to position ‘II’. Illuminates constantly while Manual mode is selected.

NOTE: If both the Manual and Sport mode lights (shown below) flash together, this indicates an electrical fault with the automatic gearbox. If the lights continue flashing after the vehicle has been brought to a halt and the starter switch has been turned off and then on again, you should seek qualified assistance urgently.

Sport mode - GREEN

Illuminates for 3 seconds as a bulb check when the starter switch is

turned to position ‘II’. Illuminates constantly while Sport mode is selected.
