Introduction

This handbook covers all derivatives in the Freelander range available at the date of publication and, together with the other publications in the literature pack, provides the information you will 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 following page and you will find it worthwhile to take a little time to read each one, and get to know your Freelander 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.

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

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.

Before You Drive

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS

If you believe that your vehicle has a defect which could cause a crash, or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in addition to notifying Land Rover North America Inc.

If NHTSA receives similar complaints it may open an investigation. If it subsequently finds that a safety related defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.

However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you and your retailer and/or Land Rover North America.

AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE

To contact NHTSA, you may call the Auto Safety HOTLINE toll free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 202-366-0123 in the Washington D.C. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC20590.

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 ignition switch is turned on.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING

Before You Drive

SYMBOLS USED

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

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

order to prevent unnecessary damage to the environment.

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.

BEFORE YOU DRIVE

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.

Before You Drive

IN AN EMERGENCY

IMPORTANT

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.

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

While it may be difficult to deter the ‘professional’ car thief, the majority of thefts are carried out by opportunists.

Therefore, take vehicle security very seriously and ALWAYS adopt this simple ‘four point drill’ whenever you leave your vehicle - even for just a few minutes:

1.Fully close all the windows (and the sunroof*).

2.Remove your belongings (or hide them from view).

3.Remove the starter key.

4.Superlock the vehicle using the remote handset.

Thieves are attracted by vulnerable vehicles. Even if you have followed the ‘four point drill’ there is still much that you can do to make your vehicle a less inviting target.

Park your vehicle where it will be clearly visible to householders and passers-by.

At night park in well-lit areas, and avoid deserted or dimly-lit side streets.

NEVER leave the keys in the vehicle.

Do not keep important documents (or spare keys) in the vehicle - these are a real bonus for the thief.

Locks & Alarm

STEERING COLUMN LOCK

H3522

To unlock the steering column

Insert the key FULLY and turn the ignition switch to position ‘I’. A small movement of the steering wheel may be necessary to disengage the steering lock while turning the switch.

To lock the steering column

Turn the key to position ‘0’ and withdraw it from the ignition switch. Turn the steering wheel slightly until the lock engages.

WARNING

Once the steering lock has engaged, it is impossible to steer the vehicle. DO NOT remove the key or turn the ignition switch to position ‘0’ while the vehicle is in motion.

ALARM SYSTEM

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

LOCKING THE VEHICLE AND ARMING THE ALARM

Before locking the vehicle and arming the alarm, ensure that all doors (including taildoor), windows, sunroof and bonnet apertures are securely closed.

There are three methods for securing your vehicle:

‘Superlocking’ using the handset - (recommended high security method).

‘Superlocking’ using the key.

Locking using the key.

IMPORTANT

If passengers or animals are to be left inside, DO NOT lock the vehicle using the handset - movement inside the vehicle may activate interior space protection*, causing the alarm to sound.

FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY ALWAYS SUPERLOCK THE VEHICLE USING THE REMOTE HANDSET

32

Locks & Alarm

Using the remote handset

H5023

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 in close proximity to the vehicle.

Locking

With the remote handset:

1

H5024

Press the lock (padlock symbol (1) button once. Each time the vehicle is locked using the handset, a coded signal is transmitted to a receiver inside the vehicle, which activates the following security features:

the central door locking system (all the door locks are activated).

‘Superlocking’ - the door locks cannot be operated from inside the vehicle.

the perimetric alarm (protects the door, taildoor, and hood apertures).

If the doors lock correctly, 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) will start to flash rapidly.

Once armed, the alarm will sound if any door is opened.

33

Locks & Alarm

With the key:

Insert the key and turn the door lock towards the rear of the vehicle. Turning the key ONCE activates the following:

all doors locked (not superlocked)

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

NOTE: Interior space protection* is not activated.

Turning the key TWICE within 1 second activates, in addition to the above:

Superlocking

If the doors lock correctly, the direction indicators flash three times to confirm that the vehicle is secure and the anti-theft alarm indicator light (in the instrument panel) will start to flash rapidly.

NOTE: The engine will automatically be immobilised after the ignition switch has been turned off.

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.

WARNING

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

Mislock

If one of the doors, taildoor or hood are not properly closed when the alarm is armed, a mislock occurs (the horn will sound a warning). The alarm will still be armed and the engine immobilised, but the open aperture will not be protected. If the appropriate aperture is then closed, the alarm will fully arm without the need to press the lock button again unless the driver's door is open, in which case the alarm will be fully armed by pressing the lock button again.

If the taildoor glass is left open when the alarm is armed, the horn will sound as a reminder, but the vehicle will be locked and alarmed as normal. The taildoor glass can be closed from outside the vehicle using the ignition key in the taildoor (see ‘Raising and lowering’, page 78).

34

Locks & Alarm

Anti-theft alarm indicator light

H5026

After locking, the RED indicator light on the instrument panel flashes rapidly while the alarm is arming itself.

After approximately 10 seconds, the indicator light adjusts to a slower frequency, and continues to flash as an anti-theft deterrent until the alarm is disarmed.

Unlocking

With the remote handset:

If your vehicle has been configured with the Single Point Entry security feature, and was locked with the handset, the handset unlocks the vehicle in two stages:

Press the unlock (no padlock) button once to disarm the alarm and unlock the driver's door only (see ‘Single point entry’,

page 35).

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

If your vehicle has not been configured with Single Point Entry, all the doors will unlock at the first press. In either case, the direction indicators flash once and the interior lights illuminate.

With the key:

Turn the key towards the front of the vehicle. The alarm will be fully disarmed. To re-mobilise the engine, the key must be inserted into the ignition switch.

If the alarm sounds

If the alarm is triggered, it will sound for approximately 30 seconds before switching itself off and can be triggered up to ten times in total before needing to be reset.

To silence the alarm, press either handset button, or operate the door locks using the key in the driver's door.

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 to unlock the remaining doors and taildoor.

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

35

Locks & Alarm

H5030

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

NOTE: If interior locking has been activated, pull the interior door handle once to unlock, and twice to open the door.

H5237

This is a personal security feature which allows the driver (or passenger) 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 interior locking has been activated, pull the interior door handle once to unlock, and twice to open the door.

36

Locks & Alarm

Door handles and door sill locking buttons

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

H5035

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.

NOTE: The door handles will not open the doors if the vehicle has been superlocked (see ‘Superlocking’, page 34)

CHILD-PROOF LOCKS

H5029

On 5-door models, move the lever on the rear doors down (arrowed in illustration) to engage.

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

WARNING

NEVER leave children unsupervised in the vehicle.

37

Locks & Alarm

ENGINE IMMOBILISATION

Engine immobilisation is an important aspect of the security system and is designed to safeguard the vehicle from theft, should the driver forget to lock the doors. Engine immobilisation prevents the engine from being started unless a valid key is inserted into the ignition switch, and occurs automatically after the ignition switch has been turned off.

The engine is re-mobilised by a signal to the ignition switch transmitted from a transponder contained within the key head. This occurs automatically whenever a valid key is inserted into the ignition switch and turned to position ‘I’.

WARNING

DO NOT keep more than one ignition key or keys from other vehicles on the same key ring, because the engine may not re-mobilise automatically.

DOOR LOCKING CUT-OFF SWITCH

H5033

An inertia switch, which operates when the ignition switch is in position ‘II’, prevents the doors from centrally locking (or, if the doors are already locked, unlocks them) in the event of an accident or sudden impact. If this occurs, central locking will be inhibited until either:

the ignition switch is turned off and the driver’s door has been opened and closed, or:

the driver’s door has been opened and closed, and the inertia switch is reset.

The inertia switch is located inside the engine compartment on the left hand side, beneath and to the rear of, the engine compartment fuse box. The switch must be reset before the engine can be restarted. Reset the switch by pressing the rubber top (arrowed in illustration).

This will also reset the fuel system, see ‘FUEL CUT-OFF SWITCH’, page 114).

38

Locks & Alarm

WARNING

Always check for fuel leaks before resetting the switch. Activating the switch when the fuel system has been damaged will cause additional fuel leakage, increasing the risk of fire or personal injury.

REMOTE HANDSET

WARNING

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

When the battery needs replacing, it will be apparent from the following symptoms:

A gradual deterioration in range and performance.

The alarm buzzer and the anti-theft alarm indicator light will double bleep/flash every second, for ten seconds, after the alarm is disarmed and driver's door opened.

It is recommended that you fit a Land Rover YWX10003L or a Panasonic CR2032 replacement battery (available from a Land Rover Retailer).

39

Locks & Alarm

Battery replacement

H5025

1.Carefully prise the handset apart, start from the keyring end using a small coin or screwdriver. Avoid damaging the seal between the two halves of the case and DO NOT allow dirt or moisture to get inside the handset.

2.Slide the battery out of its clip, taking care to avoid touching the circuit board or the contact surfaces of the clip.

3.Press and hold each button in turn for at least five seconds (this will drain any residual power from the handset).

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.

6.Re-synchronise the handset.

The handset is now ready for use.

Handset re-synchronisation

If the handset fails to lock or unlock the car, this may be because the coded signal transmitted by the handset, and the signal expected by the alarm control unit are no longer synchronised.

To re-synchronise the handset, operate either button of the handset at least five times in quick succession (in close proximity to the vehicle).

40

Sit in the most upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible and the backrest not reclined more than 30 degrees.

Seats

FRONT SEATS

WARNING

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

DO NOT travel with the seat backs reclined steeply rearwards. Optimum benefit is obtained from the seat belt with the seat back reclined to a maximum 30 degrees from the upright (vertical) position.

SITTING CORRECTLY

o

.30 max

Adjust the head restraints so that the top of the head restraint is level with the upper portion of the head.

The seat belt should rest in the centre of the shoulder. The lap part should fit tightly across the hips and not on the stomach.

Do not move the front seat too close to the instrument panel. The driver should hold the steering wheel with slightly bent arms. The legs should also be slightly bent so that the pedals can be pressed to the floor.

WARNING

Both driver, and front seat passenger should adjust their seat to provide the maximum practical distance from the airbags to prevent injury should the airbags be deployed.

H4767

The seats, head restraints, seat belts, and airbags all contribute to the protection of the occupants. Optimal use of these components will give you more protection. Therefore, observe the following points:

H5070

With 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.

NOTE: The seat heaters will switch off automatically 45 seconds after the ignition switch is turned off, or either front door is opened.

The seat heaters are thermostatically controlled and operate intermittently to achieve and then maintain a predetermined temperature between 79oF and 97oF (26oC and 36o°C).

NOTE: The operating temperature will drop to 50oF (10oC) during the operation cycle.

NOTE: Owners should be aware that the seat heaters consume considerable power from the battery and for this reason, it is recommended that they are operated only with the engine running.

43

Seats

REAR SEATS

Folding the rear seats

On vehicles not fitted with 60/40 split rear seats the whole seat can be folded forwards to increase luggage space. On vehicles fitted with 60/40 split rear seats, either or both parts of the seat can be folded.

NOTE: Before folding the rear seats, ensure that the centre rear seat belt is unbuckled.

WARNING

Ensure that the rear seat backrests are securely latched in the upright position when the seat is in use and when loads are carried in the luggage area.

H3366

Lift the release levers (see inset) to release the backrest (lift both levers simultaneously on vehicles without 60/40 split seats) and fold the backrest forwards.

WARNING

DO NOT carry unsecured equipment, tools or luggage that could move causing personal injury in the event of an accident or emergency manoeuvre. Where possible, use the seat belts to secure luggage carried on the seats.

Accommodating long loads

Remove the head restraints from the front passenger and rear seats (see ‘Head restraint removal’, page 42), move the front passenger seat forwards as far as possible and fully recline the seat backrest. Finally, fold the rear seat backrest (or the appropriate part of the backrest in the case of 60/40 split seats) fully forward as shown.

Loads that are too long to be carried inside the vehicle should be carried on the roof. (See

‘ROOF RACK’, page 153).

If it is necessary to carry a load that protrudes through the taildoor, or taildoor window, be aware of any territorial regulation restricting the length of any such load. In addition, ensure that loads DO NOT rest on the glass of a partially open window. Damage to the glass or window mechanism may occur.

WARNING

You are advised NOT to carry loads which require driving with the taildoor, or taildoor window open, as poisonous fumes will be drawn into the vehicle. If driving the vehicle in this condition is unavoidable, switch the heater to face level vents with all vents open, close the sunroof* and windows, and turn the air blower to position 4.

Maximum luggage space

‘Latch secure’ indicator

To create extra luggage space:

1.Lift the seat release levers to release the backrest and fold the seat backrest forward.

2.Tip the whole seat assembly forward as shown in illustration and readjust the front seats as required.

To return the seats to their normal position; push the seat base release levers (shown in lower inset) rearwards to unlock the seat base and unfold the seats. Ensure the seat backrests are properly secured by attempting to push them forwards - there should be no movement.

WARNING

It is extremely dangerous to ride in the cargo area. In a collision, anyone riding in this area is more likely to be injured or killed. Do not allow anyone to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and safety belts. Be sure that everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a safety belt properly.

H3333

A ‘latch secure’ indicator, mounted on the top of the right hand side of the rear seat backrest, will pop up showing a red band, when the catch is released.

When returning the seat to the upright position, ensure the indicator drops back into the backrest and that the red band is no longer visible - this confirms that the larger portion of the backrest is secure.

NOTE: The ‘latch secure’ indicator does NOT indicate that the smaller portion of the 60/40 split backrest is secure - this must be checked individually.

NOTE: When returning the seats to the upright position, ensure that the seat belts are not trapped.

Seat Belts

SEAT BELT SAFETY

WARNING

In a collision, occupants not wearing a seat belt can 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 seatbelt been worn. It may even result in the loss of life.

Seat belts fitted to your vehicle are designed for adults and larger children. Each belt should be used by one occupant only.

Observe the following precautions:

Ensure ALL passengers are securely strapped in at all times, using the appropriate restraint - 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, unsecured 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 reclined to a maximum of 30 degrees from the upright (vertical) position.

DO NOT allow foreign matter (particularly sugary food and drink) 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.

WARNING

The airbag supplementary restraint system (see ‘Airbag SRS’) is designed to enhance 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.
