Top 20 2000 Land Rover Discovery Questions & Answers


There is a resistor pack that controls the fan speed switches. Not sure about the 2000 Disco but on Range rovers of that era it is under the cover below the decker panel.- namely at the rear of the bonnet. Check that it actually is there, then get back to me and I'll post details of how to replace it

I'm assuming you mean the injector pump and not the fuel lift pump. I would recommend if the fuel injector pump is proved to be the fault to look at Ebay for a replacement. there are thousands of these engines broken for spares. Fitting the pump can be a bit tricky. If it's the lift pump you need to remove the fuel tank as the pump is fitted on the top side of the tank and is an internal unit, Best done when the tank is empty. Hope this helps as i'm sure your landrover will still be running when a Jeep is in the dump. All the best.

You most likely have serious wear in the track rod and/or drag link bushes. Do NOT try to save money on this - any good tyre service can replace the track rod ends and do a wheel alignment. If that does not fix the problem. you will probably be up for new tyres

Check your ignition coil packs (behind the intake) and check your fuel pressure. Also check / change spark plugs and wires.

NO. The new one has to be programmed to the vehicle.

Check the catalytic converters. Pull the O2 sensor between the engine an cat. If it runs. Replace the catalytic converter/s. Fuel filters can clog up, but they give signs as struggling to keep up at higher speeds. Has pressure, just no volume. The will go forever, say at 55 MPH, but try doing 60 MPH and the engine cuts out or stalls a bit.

Dont have a definitive answer for you as the generality of it is along the lines of presenting a cup of ocean water and asking from which tributary around the world it came. I will attempt to answer it based upon pure speculation. Hope it helps...
What you are referring to is actually the BeCM or Body electrical Control Module. This module controls power to, grounding of, signals of operation to/from, and diagnostic info for every component in the vehicle which relies on power to function. Everything. It is the brain of all that is power in your rover. Nothing less than amazing actually, this unit is performing hundreds of operations at any given moment you are driving and even when your car is garaged and keys in your pocket. Each Land Rover is fitted to your vehicle, synchronized, and coded at the factory for your specific vehicle. While many systems are generic in nature there are systems such as perimeter alarm sensors and engine immobiliser which have unique security codes paired to the BeCM. Replacement of the unit can be done but it is not "plug & play" so if you or your shop performed the installation it was not completed in that the unit must be paired with the numerous sub-control modules by way of recoding. This function can only be done with the Land Rover proprietary diagnostic system called TestBook. A very few independants have this technology as its expense, around $30K keeps it out of reach and maintains the umbilical cord to your local dealers service dept.
It sounds to me like your BeCM went to work after install and sent proper signals out to various components however as the diagnostic data flowed back in it was received as encrypted garble. As the unit scrambled to interpret and process data it simply became scatter brained.
I beleive that the sync requires your Discivery be on site to perform, however you may check with a reputable Rover dedicated online supplier such as Roverland parts and ask them.
As to your Rover dealer, there must have been some level of communication breakdown because i cant imagine them not knowing the process or attempting to sell you a BeCM you didnt need.
Best of luck, sorry its not a quick fix answer. Feel free to repost any additional info or message my box directly and i will do my best to catch it and assist further.

The mechanism has jammed so find the mount at the bottom near the lower sill, unbolt it from the vehicle frame and shake it until it releases. If this happens, reinstall it. If it will not come un-jammed, it will need to be replaced

Easiest way is to find the manual on line, if you do not already have it, and pull the fuse for the alarm. That should disable it. Then next dealer visit you can have it reset and you'll be good to go.

Your DII is (always) in 4 wheel drive. There is NO 2x wheel drive option on a DII, it's always in 4x4 high, or low. To select 4-wheel drive low, put your transmission in neutral and pull down the high low gear selector.

The ignition coils are kind of a difficult job, due to their location ; behind the intake manifold. If you follow your plug wires, you'll find two coil "blocks" on the rear side of your manifold. I say the job is difficult, because there is not a lot of room to get your hands in there due to the closeness of the firewall / gap between the top of the manifold and the lip of the engine bay. Remember, DII's are pretty picky about plugs ; and will misfire mainly on (pricey) plugs.

Inserting the key in the ignition and turning it on can work sometimes, but do you not have a remote for the alarm? Check the battery in the actual remote if you do have one. the alarm sounds as if (by your description) it has a back up battery, if so, youll have to locate IT and disconnect it, and that should reset the alarm. Without details, its shots in the dark here. Learn your vehicle, and contact a dealer to speak with someone who Should know his product. If your attempting to steal the vehicle as we speak, then I suggest you just run. ;O)
