Td5 Not Starting/Intermittent Cut-Out
The information below was supplied by Saif Al-Noaimi.
Recently I ran into a problem with my 2001 Defender 90 Td5 not starting and intermittently dying on me on the highway.
I sent the car to the dealer 4 times and first 3 times they were clueless. The 4th time they replaced the ECU wiring harness because they feared it was the oil in the ECU problem. Thankfully the car was still under warranty. But 2 months after that was done (car is now out of warranty) it died on me again.
I posted in the Land Rover Addicts Forum my problem and amazingly it turned out to be the relays under my passenger seat were just loose! Apparently they are saying this is a common problem so I thought it might be useful to others to include it in the KB.
