    TD5 Diagnostics Required

    Anybody? If there's nobody local, does anybody fancy trusting a unit to the post office? Glyn
  2. Is there anybody in the Coventry / West Midlands area that can help me out with a small issue I have. I had my keys stolen a bit ago so have had to resort to the spare set. Unfortunately the fob I have won't disarm the immobiliser, so I'm looking for somebody who has a nanocom or similar that can access the alarm ECU and persuade it to accept the fob, so I can take the truck for its MOT! Can anybody help, in exchange for tea, biccies, beer tokens and eternal gratitude etc? Glyn

    Landreiziger blower motor switch kit

    If someone were to hypothetically produce one at a cheaper price I would be interested (hypothetically)!

    Help please! Defender TD5 (2003)

    This sound like a problem I had with mine, which I eventually tracked down to the electrical connections on the fuel pump. These had become corroded and eventually failed. My symptoms were similar. When the vehicle wasn't running, the pump would run, but when the engine started the pump couldn't keep up with demand and the vibration meant the connections became intermittent so the problem got worse until the engine stalled.

    TD5 with Amnesia

    To put a lid in this, Western was almost correct, I eventually tracked it down to a blown fuse in the drivers seat box. Apparently it also supplies the clock and interior lights, none of which have ever worked and nor do they now! Guess what I'll be investigating next?!?!

    water containers for camping

    These are my "goto" solution for carrying water in the field (or in a defender). Not cheap, but less likely to fail than the usual collapsible type, Ortlieb also make a similar product, These!

    TD5 with Amnesia

    Evening All, My '99 TD5 110 has amnesia. The speedo doesn't retain the trip meter reading when I remove the key for more than about 5 minutes. Whilst it isn't the end of the world it is a little annoying as I use it as a guide to the fuel level, since the fuel gauge doesn't work either. Do any of you have any thoughts, either why or how to solve the problem? Glue

    Rear Wash Wipe Woes

    I'm in the process of re-instating the rear wash and wiper on my 110. I've fitted the wiper motor and that works when I I flash it out with the battery, and it works if I plug directly into the loom now I've replaced the (broken) switch with a new Carling one. I just need to build a short loom to fit between the door and the light cover. So I moved onto the wash function... I've pulled the hose from the jet over the door and blown that through. I put the hose back and checked the connection to the pump on the reservoir. Feeling confident I pushed the button and was slightly dismayed to watch the roof lining over the passenger door start raining! Clearly I need to replace the pipework. Can anybody confirm that it's 3/16" or 4mm diameter and tell me how much I need. Piece of string measurement suggests 5m will be enough. Glue
