Mike This is a builder we bought. LR2 ran no problems. Drove car outside, we knew battery was weak. Someone put key fob in with dead battery.. I went out to charge battery, i assumed battery went down because i noticed lights in fenders were flashing, (assumed flashers were left on) didn't pay much attention to that, but when girl that worked here went out to start it lights were NOT flashing. She DID not remember doing anything else. Now when insert fob into ignition everything seems correct as far as lights on dash coming on, and you can hear things clicking on motor but when push button to start things click around but starter Never clicks to engage. Again this vehicle was starting NO problem untill the last battery discharge. Battery was junk . New battery DOES NOT good dead as original did. I have been a mechanic for 30 years so basic knowledge no problem. P.S. Am willing to pay more $$$ for your time if we can resolve issue... I am assuming a security problem. fob does operate door locks and things and it seems car does reconginse fob. Thanks Carl Valley Collision Center 2009 LR2 Land Rover
Thanks Mike for your reply.
Have not done anything, not really sure what might be our next step. Land Rover dealer is about 100 miles from hear and have some other work in shop. Any other suggestions would be helpful or next step would be a trip to land rover. Will probably check starter relay but not to sure to any avail.In trying to go back over facts, I'm betting something to do with security system... Thanks again Carl
