Hi all,

i`m also having a problem starting my D2. Here goes some times it starts first time other times it doesn`t do anything at all it doesn`t even try, then it might go on the second or third time. I thought it might be the starter motor but surely that would just stop it starting alltogether.I`ve checked the connectors and they are all secure it just seems to be to intermitent to be the starter. Any help much appreciated.

Have you read the thread on Td5 starter solenoid issues? It is an intermittent fault which generally becomes less intermittent as time goes on... and eventually becomes a total "failure to proceed"!

Edited to add - assuming it is a Td5 of course - you didn't say!

Had a similar issue in mine, and it was the starter. Started fine first thing (cold) but wouldn't crank, or crank slow, or just make clicky sounds when the engine got warm. Got worse over time until I couldn't trust it anymore. Upgraded the battery to a you-beaut, high capacity AGM-type with no real improvement. Got a good second-handy of fleabay and whammo, she cranks like a demon now. Mine's a V8 D1.

Good luck :)

Yeah it`s looks like i`ll be looking for a good used one as mine has become to unreliable (having four kids and a wife to taxi about).

I know it`s not the battery as i already have a heavy duty one checked wiring and alls ok.

Oh the joys of owning a landrover!! ;)

Wouldn`t change it though.
