New to the forum and to Land Rovers. I picked up a 1999 P38 that needed head gaskets and a starter. I completed the starter replacement first, and after I finished the job it cranked just fine. Then went ahead with the head gasket replacement, put everything back together and now I can't get it to crank. I do get some relays clicking. Double/triple checked the connections at the starter and remade to connection to the solenoid. It doesn't appear to have any connections that I missed. The main ground was untouched. Battery is new and charged.
The mistake I might have made: the rover had some old gas in it, so instead of siphoning i decided to turn the key to on, enabling the fuel pump to pump the remainder of the gas into a 5 gallon bucket. That didn't work so we ended up siphoning. Now I believe I may have made the ECM mad because I turned the power on with many electrical sensors disconnected, and now I am in lock mode.
Your guys thoughts?
