Hi Guys, I have a:

2010 Range Rover 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography 143k Miles (Bought it 2 months ago)

So I unlock the car with the remote key as normal, car lights up, mirrors unfold. I get in, key left inside the pocked as normal. Press the push to start button, car lights up even more and comes alive, radio on, dash board all lights up, dash screen says ignition on, but no crank/turn over!

RAC breakdown cover came out, tested the battery, battery is perfect, he even tried to jump with his battery, still no crank, he tried to find the starter motor but couldn't find it. Got it recovered to a local garage who tested the starter motor and the starter does not receive a live feed/signal from the car, indicating the starter motor is not at fault. Garage have said it'll require further investigation in the new year, and I desperately need this over the xmas/boxing day period =(. They said it could possibly be a fuse/relay or ignition or ECU problem.

I'm so confused, the car knows its in Park, it knows the foot is on the Brake, the Battery is good, the Starter Motor is good. What could it be? I've done my searches on the forum, YouTube, there is some information but they're all on different models of Range Rovers and not specific to my model :-/

I'm like a entry level home mechanic, is there anything I can test myself? It was completely perfect until this point​

Hi there. Mine was the same. Found the earth strap from the chassis to the engine was broken. I could only start the car using an jumper starter cable from the earth of the battery to the metal of the engine. You may be lucky and it might be that.

press the start button, and hold it.
then try pressing on the brake pedal, continue to press harder while your holding down the start button.
Mine does this , without a firm press on the pedal the engine wont start
