Freelander 2 diesel not starting.

Recommended Posts

Hi. Looking for any information on Freelander 2 2.2 diesel starting issue. I had a customer come into the workshop before Christmas and their FL2 was brought in on a recovery truck, dead. Replaced the starter as original was badly worn. Starter was replaced and Freelander was sent on its way. Three days later it died. Symptoms exactly the same as if starter is faulty or battery is flat. But it’s not. New battery fitted and workshop jumper box added still no start. Left leads off battery for 24 hours and put original battery back in. Started first touch of the start button. Freelander ran perfectly for three more days then no start again. Left leads off battery for another 24 hours and after that it started and ran perfectly again. Apparently there is an ECU patch for a fault in the software that throws up these symptoms but oddly enough my local LR dealership knows nothing! 

Anyone come across this fault? Thanks.
