Land Rover Freelander Not Starting

We looked at a Land Rover Freelander recently that was not starting as the customer wanted us to check and report on it.

Land-Rover-Freelander-Engine-Bonnet-RamSpeed-2 Land-Rover-Freelander-Wheels-Bonnet-RamSpeed-1The system was scanned for errors using our equipment and we found multiple faults relating to the fuel pressure being too low. We checked the fuel system delivery and found the fuel supply from the high pressure pump was below specifications. This high pressure fuel pump was replaced as required and the fault memories cleared. A final test drive was then completed to ensure that the vehicle started properly.

Land Rover Discovery 3 Central Locking Issue

Below is a Land Rover Discovery 3 which was in our workshop and had a central locking issue.

We scanned the vehicle and checked for errors which brought up numerous faults regarding voltage. An alternator charging test was done which was all ok but it failed the battery load test. The battery was replaced as required and the errors were cleared. A road test was done which was all ok.
