  1. The passive immobiliser (spider) came in with the TA VINs, the active system that u have can be set and unset with the key in the drivers door lock, or a fob if u have one, fobs were an option on some models so u don't really need it if it's faulty as u can still use the key. So have u tried unlocking with key and fob? does the central locking work ok as that also controls the immobiliser function. Hazards flashing has nothing to do with immobilising, and will only when alarm has been activated along with the horn sounder, so possibly your security system in stuck in an alarm condition and the sounder part isn't working. Are u sure your vehicle is immobilised and it isn't a iffy link to the starter or switch. Other than u or someone needs to do some testing.
  2. RAVE or search Land Rover Topix. https://topix.landrover.jlrext.com/topix/content/document/index?groupId=1665 Discovery 2, then year, then documents and take you pick as there's a few bull and A bars listed.
  3. There's only two drains at the front one at each corner of the sunroof, for the front they are within A pillar and not accessible, for the rear the ends can be seen hanging down at the rear and up above the each mudflap on a D1 so should be similar on a D2. Why do you think you will have to blow them out? They are sealed nothing can get in when the glass is closed.
  4. With the EDC system there's no mechanical link (cable) between the accelerator pedal and the fuel injector pump, hence the term 'drive-by-wire'.
  5. Speedo has dual speed markings, so not an issue in the UK at MOT time, radio frequency is wrong for U.K. so just replace the head unit to one with UK spec, I understand if it's a Tdi the exhaust pipe at the manifold end is different to the UK system, something with emissions in Japan, if and when it due for replacement just fit the UK system. Finally the Japanese security system isn't as comprehensive as the uk system either the alarm or immobiliser part of the system is missing. As "for parts of the loom, etc" ??
  6. Do you have the throttle cable if no you have EDC, no need to go under the dash removing the kick panel.
  7. The paper catalogue is much better it. As more info in the front half dozen pages before the parts bit, also I find it quicker to search through.
  8. Not the 1995MY but a1996MY built in 1995 then yes, as alway there's two model years per year. As an example when I purchased my D1 alongside it was the 1998MY D1 both he same price, but there was a deal to be done with the outgoing model, so for me, that was £5000 off, or to be exact a load of extras and two years free servicing.
  9. The 1996MY D1 was in the showrooms in June1995, hence the vehicle being built in 1995 the VIN is MA. Just to add as I was looking to purchase a disco back then, there was few other important changes made to the 1996MY, which continued through 1997 until changes were made again when the 1998MY D1 was introduced.
  10. No EDC fitted to 1995MY tdi auto. EDC was introduced and fitted to 1996MY tdi auto model's onwards. So will only comment on vehicle with date as stated.
  11. Fuse 3 looks after the supply to: fuel cut shut-off solenoid, EGR control solenoid, EGR valve control module and the glow plug timer relay. So not that bad with the EGR being the primary suspect.

  13. Ok, check the fluid level in the approved way (cold, selector P to 1 etc) and see what is what. Some times in some light its difficult to see the fluid level on the dip stick especially if it new. If there's no sign then add an additional .25 litre wait 1/2 hour and check again in the approved way. Can't think of any other way.
