I have a 2006 L322 TD6 Range Rover Vogue that was in an accident in January of this year. The vehicle had been damaged on the drivers side front and rear quarter panel. Work on the vehicle began in April after receiving the parts I required.

I have now completed the bodywork on the vehicle and am now in the process of rebuilding the vehicle. My problem is that the vehicle will now not start using the key. This vehicle had lay in the workshop for 3 months and the battery had drained.

When I went to start the vehicle to move it into the spray booth for painting it would not start with the key, however when I crossed the starter motor the vehicle fired up. Even with the vehicle running after crossing the starter the vehicle will not select any gears and crunches when trying to select gears. All fluids in the gearbox, engine and diffs are at the levels they should be.

Can anyone give me any ideas on what the problem may be and how it can be rectified.

Thanks

Re: Accident damaged 2006 TD6 Range Rover won't start with key

I don't suppose the inertia switch was activated in the accident?

I have an idea as to what your problem may be. Your battery will have drained over a period of time slowly, this will pull the computers down along with the battery and all of the computers will no longer be communicating with each other

When you start the vehicle by crossing the starter motor the gearbox computer is not recognising that the vehicle is running and therefore is not activating the gearbox fluid pump, which in turn is not then pumping any fluid around the gearbox giving you the crunching noise when you try and select gears.

Unfortunately the only solution to this is to have the vehicle connected to a "Testbook" diagnostic computer, which to my knowledge are only used by Land Rover delaerships, therefore you will have to get the vehicle to them somehow.

I hope this helps
