  1. O2, Thermometer & Fans

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Kia ora everyone, I have a new (to me) 4.4 M62 engined L322 from 2002. It has an Lovato LPG conversion, 190K on the clock, and was owned by a careful Swiss German lady for the past ten years. The other car is a 1989 Peugeot 205GTI 1.9, and I am enjoying the bipolar car ownership. I'm quickly...
  2. Cooling fans not coming on when engine is off

    Range Rover Classic
    If you turn off the engine the cooling fans turn off. If you then turn on the key to Accessory the fans will come and run for 15 minutes and shut off on their on. I’m thinking that the sensor is work but not getting power when engine is off which it should. Any ideas? Thanks, Rusty
  3. P38 Electric fans overheating

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My name is Dave. A communications engineer in Hampshire. Recently purchased a Range Rover P38 2.5 DSE. I have electric fans fitted to the radiator and the control system fitted by PO was not working just a switch on the dash to switch the fins on or off. Forget to switch it on and it overheats...
  4. Overheating Issue/No Condensor Fans

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I’ve got a stubborn overheating issue. It’s more prevalent at idle but still runs a bit warm when driving as well. I have a new radiator in the vehicle and the viscous fan seems to be strong. I tested it with a high pressure water stream against it and it stayed rotating. The overheating happens...
  5. Engine fans hookup

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    About a week ago in 93 degree sunny weather I had our dog in the P38 along with my wife. The AC works well in the 98 RR 4.0, and even better when it's set to recycle to keep the hot air out. But during along idling stop after about 10 minutes, while my wife went into the store for milk, the RR...
  6. no Fans, AC, and dome lights also went out. LWB93

    Range Rover Classic
    So yesterday I was so happy to recharge my R12 AC system - all was good - getting ice cold. Ran for over 30 minutes from 1200-1500 rpm, building a slow charge. when I got to the 2.38# charge, suddenly the fans went completely out and so did the power to turn the compressor. I also noticed...
  7. Hi Rover fans!

    New Member Introductions
    Greetings alumni. First I want to thank you as I read many posts prior to buying our first Rover to get an idea of what I was getting myself into. A good friend who's had several Rovers and is a true "motor head" convinced me to ignore the bad hype and take my time, do my research and find the...
  8. Climate Control Fans?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    New to Range Rovers, but not new to vehicle diagnostics / repair. Patient is a 2006 North American spec Range Rover. There is a whining/fan sound coming from the steering wheel area. A buddy of mine suggested it's probably "The secondary dash fan", but all attempts to search for posts related to...
  9. THANKS To The ROVER Fans!

    Range Rover Classic
    A little something to say thanks for everyone on this board who is trying to help us 'newbies' hold our trucks together. I am well aware that I don't have a clue what I am doing, but I do love my truck, and I am trying.
  10. do the Chevy LS1 fans cool better than stock RRC 4.2?

    Range Rover Classic
    I searched the forums and all that comes up is converting to electric from mechanical. I found info on other forums that the Chevy fans out of Silverado trucks cool better (more pitch) and people put them in P38s but nothing on RRC's. Anyone have suggestions for a good mechanical fan for...
  11. Temporarily disable condenser fans?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi My two condenser fans in front of the rad are constantly running even though the AC is not on. I was blaming the viscous fan for the roaring sound but have realised its the condenser fans. Maybe a previous owner have wired them to be on all the time due to malfunction when using the AC but...

  13. Condenser fans always in parallel

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Ok gents - going blind over the last couple of days staring at the rave circuit diagram & description and trying to work out what some mechanic thought was a clever mod in the past. 1997 HSE 4.6 Symptom - condenser fans are always in parallel mode (12v) supply instead of serial switching to...

  15. When do the A/C fans kick in?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    given that the 2000 range rover p38 has both main engine fan behind the radiator and twin Kenlowes in front of the radiator, when does the latter cut in ?
  16. 4.0 overheating, fans not coming on

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, Newish Rover caretaker, but fairly experienced grease monkey. Truck is a '98 4.0, converted to coil suspension, ~200K kilometers. When my Dad bought the truck this winter, we noticed it had a JB Weld patch on the upper plastic radiator tank. (R'uh roh!) Had it out for the first time...
  17. Interesting long term review for diesel fans

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I am assuming that the powertrain will be essentially similar in the US. Seems like it should be a reliable powertrain. http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-reviews/long-term-tests/land-rover/range-rover-vogue-se-tdv6-2014-long-term-test-review/
  18. Fan(s) / Radio / Interior and Door lights all went out simultaneously

    Range Rover Classic
    Fan(s) / Radio / Interior and Door lights all went out simultaneously 93 classic LWB, I was driving along, hearing some buzzing on the radio. Decided to start the heater fan going, and the second I flipped it from "X" -> "I", the radio went dead and I later realized that the interior lights...
  19. Condenser Fans & Alternator Fault

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Back to my P38 97 4.6 HSE. If my A/C needs recharging would the condenser fans run continuously when the ignition is switched to position 2 without the engine running? It's not running very cold at the moment. What would cause an Alternator Fault message when the ignition is switched to...
  20. Anyone installed electric fan(s) in an early RRC in place of the viscous fan?

    Range Rover Classic
    Anyone installed electric fan(s) in an early RRC in place of the viscous fan? To cut a long story short my fan shattered while I was on the freeway and ripped my radiator apart. All else appears okay in the engine bay, I managed to get the vehicle off the road before the engine overheated...
