By FossybearJune 9, in Freelander Forum. Hi people I've had a 51 plate freelander now for a couple of weeks and I've just found a key fob in ashtray lol I was using the key tried to use fob not working so I put in new battery still don't work any ideas cheers. It may not be the original fob for the car - but it's easy with something like NanoCom or RovaCom to program any fob to the car. I programmed my Freelander to use my Defender fob as they are the same - meaning I only needed one on my keyring!

A fairly common fault on pre Freelander 2 models you will hear a whine, hum or droning noise coming from the rear of the car. It is particularly noticable when driving at a constant higher speed, but can start from 20mph. Land Rover are aware of this common fault and issued a technical bulletin detailing a repair procedure.

The cause is that the pinion bearing was over tightened at manufacture and wears prematurely. Although it is a common fault be careful when diagnosing as a worn wheel bearing can make a very similar noise and you need to be sure you are replacing the correct part as it is an expensive repair. The Haldex pump sits inbetween the propshaft and the rear differential and applies the torque to the diff when pulling away or during slow speed manoeuvring.

VAT depending on model. If you can hear a whine when you are steering then there are three common causes, the first to check is the reservoir, there is a gauze at the bottom which can get blocked and cause a lack of oil to the pump. Secondly if as well as the whine which is worse on full lock the steering is starting to feel heavier especially at low speed or when parking that can be a sign that the steering pump is on its way out.

Worst case scenario is that the steering rack needs replacing, most commonly found on pre Freelander 2s where during the manufacture of the steering rack the weld was not flushed out properly and swarf contaminates the system preventing the oil from flowing properly. The vehicle will steer without problems under normal driving conditions but when you slow to pull into a parking space for example the steering will become really heavy and very difficult to turn.

A grinding or droning noise that gets louder the faster you travel or when turning often indicates a dry wheel bearing. It can be difficult to tell which one is at fault as the noise can travel round the car, when driving listen for the noise to get louder when cornering, if it is louder when turning left then more weight is on the right front wheel so that one is faulty and vice versa turning right.

To check properly, jack up the wheel and feel for play by rocking the wheel from top to bottom. If this is the case then the complete hub needs to be replaced.

If you are experiencing a loss of power it can becaused by a number of issues, most will require the vehicle plugging into diagnostic equipment to find the exact cause however the most common faults are EGR valves or a split in one of the intercooler hoses.

If there is a split then it means that the air boost pressure is lost so the air and fuel mixture is incorrect leading to poor performance and generally black smoke from the exhaust.

Common Problems and Fixes – Freelander 2

Most instances will put the car into restricted performance mode but not always. To investigate for a split hose inspect the large two hoses that run from to the bottom of the intercooler to the engine, look for evidence of oil on the outside of the hose or a split will show if you squeeze it.

We are coming across this issue quite frequently on the Freelander 2. If you have noticed that your fuel gauge is reading incorrectly then this can be caused by a faulty fuel sender unit there are 2 in each tank or a faulty ECU.

However, we have found that often it is just an issue with the connectors that attach the wiring loom to the fuel sender unit that corrode giving intermittent signals and fortunately these can be replaced. It is a common fault with a number of Land Rover models. Be careful if you are thinking that you can live with a wrong reading on the dash because if the ECU thinks the tank is empty it will stop the engine to prevent any damage and not start again and you can guarantee it will do it at the most inconvenient time and location.

It may operate fine for a while without the eject function working but at some point the ECU will decide it is a security risk and you will be unable to start the engine.

I have to then get it jumped. Then it's fine until it sits for more than 2 days. I have had the LR dealership tell me the issue is resolved first a new battery, then a system rebootneither of which fixed the issue. Am I missing something as to why the dealership can't determine the cause of the battery drain?

I'm not very knowledeable about cars but I've done some research online and it seems like a mechanic should be able to fix this, or at minimum tell me the cause? Any insight would be helpful. I have this same exact issue and have been to my dealership multiple times with no fix. It's so frustrating. I have to ride around with jumper cables in my vehicle.

I'm having the same battery draining issue. I've had the battery tested multiple times with results reflecting that my battery is fine. This past week the car sat for two days and wouldn't start which really came at no surprise. I had it jumped and this time the dashboard did not even light up at all. I have just recently replaced the battery so I'll soon be letting it sit for a few days as a test. The issue was not resolved for me with this action.

Car Key Repairs Braintree

Freelander remote unlocking receiver Discussion in ' Land Rover Freelander ' started by britishwardogApr 2, Did you sync the new fob by pressing one of the fob buttons quickly five times? BrackApr 3, This was a fob from remotekey.

I would try synchronising the fob first - point fob at the car and on the fifth press the hazards should flash - job done. Do all the doors lock with the key? If it comes down to the receiver have a look at it first before you buy another - there's a multiplug connector at the back of it that might have come loose - is there power at the connector? You can also note the serial number for when you buy another.

Hi mate, tried re-syncing the fob first but didn't work, yes central locking works fine on the key in all areas, I will dig out the receiver and check that out next, cheers for your help! Last edited: Apr 3, Yes, changing the battery was the first thing I tried. Can anyone tell me if there are any other component that can affect whether the remote unlocking will work other than the receiver and the fob, I've tried re-syncing the fob and also tried programming a brand new fob all to no avail, it's been suggested to me to get hold of a working second hand receiver but a I don't know how to test mine to see if it is indeed knackered or b if something else is at fault.

Any help appreciated. Central locking works as it should using the key.

Having tried the second remote with the same result, I used the retractable blade to open the passenger door.

Fearing that the three and a half year-old original equipment battery had failed, I pessimistically put the remote in the docking aperture and pressed the starter button. The engine fired immediately. Do you have any idea what may have happened?
