    Disco 1 - windscreen DAB aerial fitting

    Thanks Teabag.
  2. Hi, I'm looking to fit a windscreen DAB aerial and need to get the cable from the top left corner of the windscreen to the back of the radio. I can run the cable down the inside of the pillar trim but does anyone have any ideas of how to get it across inside the dash area without taking it all out? Thanks Steve

    Portable jump starter

    Thanks Bowie, any idea how many amps your Dad's unit kicks out? I've seen some for 400 amps but was originally looking at a 600 amp version.

    Portable jump starter

    Hi, I had a dead battery the other day as someone had left an interior light on. I was thinking of getting one of the small portable jump starters, something like the one hopefully copied below, and was looking to see if anyone had any recommendations or experiences of them? Thanks Steve

    Possible immobiliser issue

    Yeah, unfortunately, I was in a petrol station, in the dark and seeing what could be done via a mobile phone

    Possible immobiliser issue

    So it's an auto and now back after a short trip on a low loader I had thought that the rapid flashing was an indicator that there may be a problem as it's not normal and I had read a post on a different forum about this showing a potential problem with the fob battery I don't think it has a spider after some searching around on a previous issue where a fuse kept blowing so I'll have a look at the starter motor

    Possible immobiliser issue

    Hi, I'm sure this has been done to death but I need some help in finding a fault potentially with the immobiliser. I went out in my Disco 300tdi ES, MY1996 (N reg) yesterday and got to a petrol station without issue. Stopped off and done what I needed to do in the Tescos and came back out. The 2 button fob unlocked the car as normal and I put the key in the ignition, the lights came on as usual but when I turned the key to start her up I got nothing except a click of a relay somewhere. The only indication I have of an issue is that when I lock the disco the alarm light rapidly flashes for around 10 seconds then goes back to normal speed flashes. I've taken the battery out, charged it up and gone back to fit it in with no joy, same issue, and tried both sets of keys. I've also tried the EKA code although bearing in mind how old it is I'm not sure it registered the turns very much. I've called out a recovery service to pick the car up but where can I start looking for the issue? The annoying thing is that the disco was fine up until yesterday

    Blown engine management fuse

    I don't know, how do I tell?

    Blown engine management fuse

    So far so good but it's intermittent enough to be annoying and blow again at any time Given that it looks to be part of the wiring in the diagram above I'll keep an eye on it and see Thanks for your help

    Blown engine management fuse

    I managed to have a look under the bonnet this morning to see if I could see anything amiss and noticed a wire that runs from the glow plug timer relay to another box near the battery. The wire was trapped under the battery and when i managed to get it out from underneath noticed that it had been squashed and worn through I've taped up, for the time being, any exposed sections

    Blown engine management fuse

    It's a 1995 and the fuse is the 10a fuse 3 on the lower satellite section under the steering column.

    Blown engine management fuse

    I have an infrequent problem with a fuse that blows that leaves the engine effectively dead. I've had the disco 1, 300tdi auto, for around 4 years and not had any issues. The first time it happened it took some searching to find out what may be involved but that was after a lift home on the back of a flatbed. The second time was today and easily remedied for now. The symptoms of the issue once the fuse has blown is that the starter turns over but the engine doesn't kick in and the glow plug light doesn't come on when starting. Once the fuse is replaced we;re back to normal working order. In both occasions when this has occurred i have been accelerating up hill when all power is lost and the fuse has blown. Has anyone been in this situation before or would anyone know where to start looking to see what the underlying issue could be? Thanks

    Disco 1 300tdi fuel stop solenoid

    Thanks Western
  14. Hi, I think I have an issue with my fuel stop solenoid after the truck some to a very abrupt stop last night. I'm going to see if it is the solenoid at the weekend but would like a backup in case it is and needs replacing. Can someone, thanks Western, tell me the correct part number as I've seen a couple of numbers around? It's for a disco 1 300tdi Auto, MY1996, ES variation if that matters Thanks Steve
