Introduction

This handbook covers all versions of the Freelander petrol and diesel models and, together with the other books in the literature pack, provides 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 Contents 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.

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 in this handbook, therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

To include changes made after the handbook is printed, it is sometimes necessary to issue one or more handbook supplements. When reading this handbook, check the literature pack for possible supplements.

Any further updates will be posted on the Land Rover internet site and can be accessed at www.ownerinfo.landrover.com

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

Land Rover operates a policy of constant product improvement and therefore reserves the right to change specifications without notice at any time. Whilst every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy of the information in this handbook, no liabilities for inaccuracies or the consequences thereof can be accepted by the manufacturer or the dealer, except in respect of personal injury caused by negligence of the manufacturer or the dealer.

TYRE PRESSURES

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tyres (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). if you have to check warm tyres, you should expect the pressures to have increased between 30 and 40 kPa, (0.28 and 0.41 bar or 4 and 6 lbf/in2). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tyres in order to match the recommended pressures.

Example

It is important that you are familiar with these subjects to ensure that your vehicle and its features are used safely. Using the index at the back of this handbook, refer to the relevant topic for more information.

HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS

WARNING

Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher centre of gravity than ordinary passenger cars, to enable the vehicle to perform in a wide variety of off-road applications. An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the road allowing you to anticipate problems.

The vehicle is not designed for cornering at the same speed as conventional passenger cars any more than a low-slung sports car is designed to perform satisfactorily under offroad conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvres. As with other vehicles of this type, failure to operate the vehicle correctly may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover. For important safety information, be sure to read the ‘On-Road’ and ‘Off-Road’ driving guidelines given later in this handbook.

18

General Information

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

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 valuable belongings (or hide them out of sight).

3.Remove the ignition key.

4.Lock the vehicle using the remote control

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

BE SAFE - NOT SORRY.

Park where your vehicle can be easily seen by 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.

19

General Information

DATA RECORDING

Service data recording

Service data recorders in your vehicle are capable of collecting and storing diagnostic information about your vehicle. This potentially includes information about the performance or status of various systems and modules in the vehicle such as engine, throttle, steering or brakes.

In order to properly diagnose and service your vehicle, Land Rover and service and repair facilities may access vehicle diagnostic information through a direct connection to your vehicle.

Event data recording

Event data recorders are capable of collecting and storing data during a crash or near-crash event. The recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event. The modules may record information about both the vehicle and the occupants, potentially including information such as:

How various systems in your vehicle were operating.

Whether or not the driver and passenger seat belts were buckled.

How far, if at all, the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the brake pedal.

How fast the vehicle was travelling.

Where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

To access this information special equipment must be connected directly to the recording modules. Land Rover do not access event data recorder information without obtaining consent, unless pursuant to court order or where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or third parties acting with lawful authority. Other parties may seek to access the information independently of Land Rover.

Keys and Remote Controls

KEYS AND REMOTE CONTROLS

H5022

You have been supplied with a pair of identical keys and two remote controls.

WARNING

Keep the spare set in a safe place - NOT IN

THE VEHICLE.

Your keys

The keys supplied with your vehicle are programmed to the vehicle's security system - they CANNOT be reprogrammed and the engine cannot be started without a valid programmed key. If a key is lost or broken, a replacement can be ordered only from a Land Rover Dealer/ Authorised Repairer.

NOTE: Land Rover Dealers/Authorised Repairers do not stock spare keys, time has to be allowed for replacements to be programmed to your security system and then delivered to the dealer.

If you lose a key, contact your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer; a key reported lost will be deactivated. If the key is later recovered, your Land Rover Dealer/Authorised Repairer can have it reactivated.

Locks and Alarm

STEERING COLUMN LOCK

H3522

To unlock the steering column

Insert the key FULLY and turn the starter 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 starter 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 starter 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 remote control- (recommended high security method).

‘Superlocking’ using the key.

Locking using the key.

IMPORTANT

FOR MAXIMUM SECURITY ALWAYS SUPERLOCK THE VEHICLE USING THE REMOTE CONTROL

However, if passengers or animals are to be left inside, DO NOT lock the vehicle using the remote controlmovement inside the vehicle may activate interior space protection*, causing the alarm to sound.

24

Locks and Alarm

Using the remote control

H5023

While it is not necessary to point the remote control at the vehicle, the remote control must be within range of the vehicle when a button is pressed. Note that the operating range may vary depending upon remote control battery condition and may sometimes be limited by physical and geographical factors beyond your control. From a security point of view, it may not be wise to unlock unless you are in close proximity to the vehicle.

Locking

With the remote control:

1

H5024

Press the lock (padlock symbol [1]) button once. Each time the vehicle is locked using the remote control, 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 bonnet apertures).

interior space protection*.

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

25

Locks and Alarm

Once armed, the alarm will sound if any door is opened, or if the soft-back is raised or hardback removed or if (after a checking period of 15 seconds) any movement is detected inside the passenger compartment (see ‘Interior space protection*’, page 29).

With the key:

Insert the key and turn 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 (in the instrument panel) will start to flash rapidly.

NOTE: The engine will automatically be immobilised after the starter 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 control. 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 bonnet 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 and, unless it is the bonnet that has been left open, interior space protection* will not have been activated. 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 starter key in the taildoor (see ‘Raising and lowering’, page 70).
