Your rims are an essential part of your car and should not be taken lightly.....

They could make or mar a journey.

Client's rims where changed after he came back to find 3 flat tires. Rims where inspected and found to have cracked, bent and had damaged valve housings.....

Your Mechanic would keep saying he serviced your nozzles......

If he soaked them in thinner and replaced them, he failed woefully.......

However, if he did something like what I am about to show you then he is on point...

Changing blown brake light bulbs and brake light switch.......


As small as the brake light switch is, it can ground the whole car.

There is a A-B correlation in the CAN bus that makes it such that when you have a blown brake light bulb or incorrect brake light bulb, the transmission goes into limp mode.

A failing battery is the beginning of failing electronics in your Land Rover!

That your car starts doesn't mean your battery is good. Engine load and Electrical load matters seriously.

Sudden Overheating?? No leak??





So you say your Land Rover overheats? Lets diagnose a variety of overheating problems. Some are trivial, and others will require a complete engine overhaul. Overheating is a problem whose repair cost can range from zero to what seems like infinity.

Land Rover V8 engines are mostly aluminum with some steel and iron components. Aluminum engines are very susceptible to damage from overheating. Before we begin I need to warn you — if you haven’t been warned already — not to ever drive a Land Rover with the temp gauge in the red, not even a short distance. Driving an overheated Rover half a mile down the highway could cost you an engine.

Use genuine LR tail light bulbs.


The link below relates to the genuine LR tail light bulbs, part number 264590. As you have now done the expensive thing putting in the official Interstate Battery, along with replacing the brake light switch, you may as well replace all the tail light bulbs.

As with LR parts prices, none make sense and you will probably find the genuine P21/5 bulbs cost less than dollar store bulbs, (well less than parts store bulbs anyway). The quality control of LR bulbs is a bit better with regards to uniformity of amp draw and filament construction.

Regardless, before you do, look thru the red plastic; all the bulb filaments should be standing vertical. This is so that when a filament fails, that it will hopefully not fall across the second filament. When this happens, odd signals can be picked up by the computers and lead to false failed transmission messages plus other sillyness.

Hard Reset Instructions

In brief, to start the hard reset process, open the hood but close all doors and let your 3 go to sleep - no radio display etc and no key in the ignition. This will take a couple of minutes and do not open any doors until the reset is completed. (I find that it is often a good idea to have the drivers door window rolled down and the key in my pocket whenever fooling about the vehicle.) Also when I play with a car battery, I remove any rings I have from my fingers.

Disconnect the ground battery terminal from the main starting battery.
Disconnect the positive battery terminal from the main starting battery.

The reason for this order is if a wrench or loose battery cable ends grounds to the body, no arcing or other bad things happen.

(I assume that you only have one battery in your 3. If not, disconnect the others as well and leave them disconnected until after all is done.)

Connect the negative cable to the positive cable. (NOT the battery.) You will need a short length, (a foot or so), of light gauge, (14 to 18 gauge AWG, insulated stranded copper), wire to span between the battery cable ends as there is not enough slack in the positive and negative battery cables for the ends to touch each other.

Hold all together for about a minute or more, (at least two minutes), as you are discharging memory modules within the engine computer and elsewhere. Then it is suggested you then just let all sit disconnected for say ten minutes, (minimum five minutes), prior to commencing to put the battery cable ends back on the battery posts per the following order.

Reattach positive terminal to the main starting battery positive post.
Reattach negative terminal to the main starting battery negative post.

Start engine and hopefully no or fewer warning lights.
Reset time on the radio - note that the station presets are still there as not everything is erased. Nothing much else needs resetting either.

You can now connect up the other batteries if you have a multiple battery setup.

Why do you want to damage the car?? Buy a LHD and forget the idea of conversion. I hate to say this but its a venture you will regret.

Went to resurrect a Range Rover that has been parked for 2 years in Ife.

The mechanics had changed everything from fuel pump to plugs. Yet car wouldn't start. The owner had to take a chill pill to prevent himself from going bankrupt....
