OWNER’S HANDBOOK

Publication Part No. LRL 18 02 53 502 Version 2

© Land Rover 2005

Introduction

This handbook covers all current versions of the LR3 models and, together with the other books in your literature pack, provides all the information that 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 LR3 as soon as you possibly can. The more you understand before you drive, the greater the satisfaction once you are seated behind the steering wheel.

The specification of each vehicle will vary according to territorial requirements and also from model to model within the vehicle range. Some of the information published in this handbook, therefore, may not apply to your particular vehicle.

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.landrover.com in the OWNERS area.

* An asterisk appearing within the handbook 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 retailer, except in respect of personal injury caused by the negligence of the manufacturer or the retailer.

Quick Overview

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 and if it finds that a safety 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, your Retailer or Land Rover North America Inc.

Auto safety hotline

To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety HOTLINE toll-free at 1-800-424-9393 (or 202-366-0123 in the Washington, DC. area) or write to: NHTSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, DC 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from the HOTLINE.

Quick Overview

AUTOMATIC MIRROR DIPPING

If your vehicle is fitted with the driver’s seat memory option, the door mirrors may dip when reverse gear is selected. This gives the driver a view of the curbside to aid vehicle positioning when reversing.

The feature is optional and can be adjusted by the user.

For more detailed information on automatic mirror dipping, see Automatic mirror dipping*, 80.

REMOVING THE ’BOOM’

If a resonance/booming sound occurs with only the rear windows open, lowering a front window about 25 mm (1 inch) will eliminate the condition. This will change the frequency of the air volume moving in/out of the vehicle and thus lessen or remove the booming sound.

OCCUPANT DETECTION

The front passenger seat is equipped with an occupancy sensor which measures the weight on the cushion and changes the passenger airbag status.

The occupancy sensor operates as follows:

Seat

Passenger

Indicator

occupancy

airbag status

active

status

 

 

 

 

 

Completely

Deactivated

No

empty

 

 

 

 

 

Low weight

Deactivated

Yes

occupant/

 

 

object

 

 

 

 

 

Heavy

Activated

No

occupant/

 

 

object

 

 

 

 

 

It is possible to receive an intermittent indicator with an empty seat condition. This is part of the system’s adaptive behaviour, and does not affect the status of the passenger airbag. However, if the indicator becomes permanently illuminated when the seat is definitely empty, then contact your Land Rover Retailer immediately.

WARNING

Do not use a child restraint on a seat protected by an operational air bag in front of it.

There is a risk of death or serious injury when the airbag deploys.

The safest place for children is properly restrained in the rear seats.

For more details on occupancy detection, see

Occupant detection, 75

Quick Overview

VOICE RECOGNITION*

Voice control provides a safe and convenient way of operating the audio system without the need to operate the controls manually. This enables you to concentrate fully on driving the vehicle, and removes the need to divert your attention from the road ahead in order to change settings, or receive feedback from the system.

A number of voice commands are available, and with a little experience you will find them easy and convenient to use. Whenever you issue one of the defined commands with the system active, the voice control system converts your command into a control signal for the audio system. Your inputs take the form of dialogues or commands. You are guided through these dialogues by announcements or questions.

Activating the system

H5786R

To activate voice control:

Briefly pull the control paddle (your Audio will mute at this point). A brief acoustic signal will be heard, and ‘LISTENING’ will be displayed on the main message centre to indicate that the system is now waiting for a voice command.

Note: It is only necessary to use the steering wheel voice control paddle at the beginning of each voice session.

Defined voice commands

The voice control system understands predominate commands which need to be quoted word for word.

An audio feedback of voice commands is available. To activate the feedback, pull the voice control paddle briefly and give one of the following commands:

General commands

Voice help To list all commands.

Notepad Help To list Notepad commands.

Audio commands

Radio help To list Radio commands.

CD help To list CD commands.

Please refer to the Audio System Handbook for full operating instructions.

Navigation & Telephone commands

Phone help To list telephone commands.

Navigation help To list Navigation commands.

Please refer to the Navigation, TV & Telephone Handbook for full operating instructions.

Gas Station Information

TIRE PRESSURES

Air pressure naturally increases in warm tires (after the vehicle has been driven for a while). If you have to check warm tires, you should expect the pressures to have increased by between 30 and 40 kPa (0.3 to 0.4 bar) (4 to 6 lbf/in2). In this circumstance, NEVER let air out of the tires in order to match the recommended pressures.

HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS

WARNING

Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance and hence, a higher center 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 off-road conditions. If at all possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvers. 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.

Always take careful note of warning information about the airbag SRS affixed to the driver’s and passenger’s sun visor.

An additional label, located on the ’B’ post, warns against the use of rear-facing child seats in the front passenger seat.

For further information concerning the airbag SRS and the use of child restraints, consult the relevant sections of this handbook.

BRAKE PADS

Brake pads require a period of bedding in. For the first 800 km (500 miles), you should avoid situations where heavy braking is required.

Remember! Regular servicing is vital to ensure that the brake pads are examined for wear and changed periodically to ensure long term safety and optimum performance.

IN AN EMERGENCY

Remember the breakdown safety code

Wherever possible, consistent with road safety and traffic conditions, the vehicle should be moved off the main thoroughfare, preferably into an emergency lane. 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.

General Information

ANTI-THEFT PRECAUTIONS

While it may be difficult to deter the ‘professional’ car thief, the majority of thefts are carried out by unskilled 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 valuable belongings (or hide them out of sight).

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 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.

BREAKING-IN

Proper breaking-in will have a direct bearing on the reliability and smooth running of your vehicle throughout its life.

In particular, the engine, gearbox, brakes and tires need time to ‘bed-in’ and adjust to the demands of everyday motoring. During the first 500 miles (800 km), it is essential to drive with consideration for the running-in process and heed the following advice:

LIMIT maximum road speed to 70 mph (110 km/h) or 3,000 rev/min. Initially, drive the vehicle on a light throttle and only increase engine speeds gradually once the breaking-in distance has been completed.

DO NOT operate at full throttle or allow the engine to labour in any gear.

AVOID fast acceleration and heavy braking except in emergencies.

27

General Information

ON-BOARD EVENT DATA

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

Other modules in your vehicle - 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 & Handsets

KEYS AND HANDSETS

H5750G

You have been supplied with two remote handsets with integral keys which operate all of the vehicle’s locks.

The operation of all transmitter buttons on all handsets will be inhibited whilst a key is in the starter switch.

Note: The key transmitter may not operate correctly in areas that are subject to interference from other radio equipment operating on a similar frequency. Areas where, for example, equipment such as amateur radio, medical devices, telecommunications equipment, or other remotely operated alarms are in use may cause difficulty. If such difficulties are experienced, try to operate the transmitter as close as possible to the vehicle, or use the key in the door lock.

The keys supplied with your vehicle are programmed to your security system - the engine cannot be started without a key programmed to your vehicle.

Caution: Keep the spare handset key in a safe place - NOT IN THE VEHICLE!

The other two keys that you have received are for locking the main glovebox.

Note: Should a key transmitter be lost or damaged a replacement can only be obtained from your Land Rover retailer, where it will be programmed to your vehicle. The dealer will require proof of ownership, and keep a log of all enquiries for replacement key transmitters.

It is advisable to notify your retailer as soon as possible if a key transmitter is lost or stolen, and have the remaining transmitters reprogrammed. This will prevent access to the vehicle using the lost/stolen transmitter.

29

Keys & Handsets

Compliance

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.

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: NT8-15K6014CFFTXA

Receiver FCC ID: LQN5752

Remote handset battery

The battery is rechargeable. The fact that the battery needs recharging will be apparent from the following:

’KEY BATTERY LOW’ will be displayed in the main message center.

A gradual deterioration in range and performance will be noticed.

Insert the key into the starter switch and start the engine. This will start to recharge the handset battery.

Caution: 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.
