Hi Folks,

I have the dreaded cold Range Rover syndrome!!! Brrrrrrrr, Book sign on climate display, cold air blowing, not good when it's minus 7.

I am a keen Range Rover enthusiast and done all the work to my p38 myself (see pic) but when it comes to this, i have no experience what so ever. I do not want to put my car into some garage to have folk tinker with it, as you know most mechanics no nothing about Range Rovers.

So can anyone recommend a fair priced and knowledgable person that could assist me in getting the feeling back in my fingers and toes. I live in East Kilbride (Near Glasgow)


Regards

Stephen

Low coolant, dirty relays, stuck blend flap, fouled sensor...

/\ What he said.

Seriously though, the heat in my p38 always worked so I've never had to look into this kind of problem.

Marky, that's the senario to a tee!!! Is it easy to move the blend motor, any chance you can give me a quick step by step guide?

Thanks

Hi

If both sides are cold it is most likely that there is a problem with the water circulation through the heater matrix, or there is a air lock in that part of the coolingwater system. Feel the hoses in and out of the matrix and see if they are hot.

It is possible that both the flaps are jammed. There is a write up on how to insert a screw at the stickies to free up a blend motor flap. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21865.

If you want you could try to move the blend motor with 12 VDC feed from e.g. the cigarette lighter socket. I have made a write up on how to do this.
