Freelander 1.8 not starting - immobiliser?


Recommended Posts

Just got my 1999 1.8 Freelander back after having the rear fuel filter and some water pipes replaced it ran fine for a few days, but last night it wouldn't start.

All the dash lights came on and there was a click as I turned the key but nothing else. The car locked and unlocked with out any problems. Lights came on with no prob.

I checked the fuses etc and then I disconnected and reconnected the huge multi-connector that goes into the side of the silver box under the bonnet (guessing this is the ECU?) and it then started and I got home OK.

Unfortunately this morning I had exactly the same problem, but unplugging/replugging the connector made no difference - I've tried the other key/keyfob but still the same problem.

So, could a wire or earth strap have come loose? Could it be the immobiliser?
