    Default Discovery 2 Land Rover 4.0 L, V8

    Greetings Friends,

    Just bought a Discovery 2 Land Rover 4.0 L, V8. The price was such, here in Windhoek Namibia that I could not resist. The car starts but shuts off. Seems to have some ignition switch issues. Its at my trusted mechanic now. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this Landy and what are you overall thoughts on the vehicle.

    Thanks in advance,
    Brian

    When the engine ecu has been replaced and it has not gone through the securitu learning step, then it has the same symptom as you have described.

    They're brilliant vehicles once you get to know their little niggles. Congrats and may she give you many happy miles.

    I'm pretty sure that Twindisco is on to something, sounds like an immobilizer issue. I've read about similar on a few of the landy pages.
