  1. Ho dear, but it is a symptom of the “spider” going faulty… if the either the engine didn’t crank or if petrol there’s no spark at the plugs, Whe the spider starts playing up the ‘unable to start’ gets more frequent, my immobiliser did for 8 months even disembarking from a ferry, and a month the finally gave up on the outside lane of a motorway… So what was it no cranking or ignition with a petrol engine, of If diesel then it cranking or fuel.
  2. Some pictures of the MFU I posted in this thread a few years ago. https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/multi-function-unit.64509/
  3. Following the procedure it should go straight into the diagnostic function, very strange when things start working on their own.
  4. Any faults will identify as the one or more of the items shown in the diagnostic list that isn’t functioning. Also maybe the red illumination around the ignition switch isn’t there. The mfu is at the rear of the fuse board, two fiddly screws, iirc, to remove the board then unplug a lead or two and turn the board to reveal the mfu, there’s enough slack in the loom to do that, then remove the lead from the mfu and pull it to unplug. It was way back in 2011 when I had to replace my faulty mfu.
  5. There a diagnostic test that’s available to check the items that it’s associated with.
  6. The part the MFU plays is the intermittent wiper delay timing but only when that function is switched on. Plus theres few other things like the headlamp washer operation sequence and interior lighting delay.
  7. At the motor check u 12v supply that will be a black/ green wire. The brown/light green is from the wiper relay, black wire of course is earth.
  8. The park switch is within the wiper motor housing, so if your motor has a detachable cover remove the screws and look inside.
  9. Its not impossible for the wiper switch position to be faulty with the contact stuck in a made position, so further investigation with a multi meter is required. Below is a diagram taking from LRs electrical workshop manual for the D1, which is available on-line.
  10. The first time I started my V8s engine after fitting the Janspeed system the idle speed went at 2000rpm for around two minutes the dropped down to the usual around 750rpm thanks to the ECM doing the adjustment. The system is still fitted and is definitely fit & forget.
  11. They can easily contribute to an engine misfire, such as misinformation to the management system on the air fuel ratio as an example.
  12. As the engine has full electronic management system and even linked to the auto gear box if fitted, the needs to be plug into a diagnostic test kit to give u an idea of what is what. Iffy o2 sensor are notorious for issues, the same as the other sensors for that matter.
  13. Why not remove the sealing strip, shown as no.3, clean and u may find the area of leak and reseal, then refit a new sealing strip if necessary. Strip: LR part number MXC8199 strip facia to windscreen sealing. Is LRs description. 1994-5 it all changed to the 300 series with the MA 081991
  14. I had a contractor at work that had a newish D1 200tdi so it was a few years a go, he had an issue with the light being permanent on, even after following the various procedures and advice giving, but soon after we heard he has crashed the disco on a roundabout which put him in hospital. We didn’t see him much after that, I still wonder if it was the locked diff locked or just his speed or both going around the roundabout as he did say he had trouble getting round but really didn’t know. Perhaps thats why LR state see your dealer as soon as poss if the diff lock light doesn’t extinguish.
