Where is the answer you are talking about?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
There was a class law suite Against Landrover regarding this problem with this model for both year 2008 and 2009. If you have an answer, I am sure you can help a lot of people. I know you people do a lot of research and probably have an idea the reason I asked, If you don't know, please don't trigger for my money to be withdrawn from my account.
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Do you get the same results from both keys?

Are there any aftermarket electronics on the vehicle?

Do you know anyone with a scan tool?

Did the repairs cause this or were there issues before?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
What happened is a common problem where this car just shuts off. On diagnosis the battery was extremely low 11v. Based on the age of the battery, figured it was not adequately accumulating charge so I replaced it. It still didn't' start . I determined that it was immobilized. was able to disarm but still couldn't start. Because I saw some rust on starter terminals and their was noise coming from alternator area like overload or shorted circuit, I replaced both Alternator and Starter. Non of this has worked; The battery keeps on discharging and it has a key fob which only charges when docked in the ignition. This is where I am. What is your answer
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

I am not getting any response to the questions I am asking. I will opt out and let someone else try to help you.

If Chris cant answer then the money should be refunded ! He can look up the case which was filed in new Jersey. It is similar to my problem except I have not taken my car to no dealer. I noticed a lot of people had the same problem and got nowhere with dealership. That is why I was skeptical to take it to the dealer.
