The Full Boris
This damn problem has been going on forever. I’m sick of it. Sick sick sick bleeuuuuurgh!
So come on people… someone out there must have a solution? It’s a totally weird starting problem but at least its now showing a repetitive solution. So lets go through it in clear English (well as clear as I can make it) and perhaps… just perhaps someone will kindly put me out of my misery.
CARFAX Vehicle Description: 2006 LAND ROVER LR3 SE
Body Style: 4 DR. WAGON/SPORT UTILITY
Driveline: ALL WHEEL DRIVE
Engine: 4.0L V6 FI
Here we go:
This starting problem is utterly random. It might work perfectly for days, weeks on end then suddenly refuse to start. It happens when the car is hot, cold, wet, on a hill, in the sunshine, in a garage, while refueling or anywhere at any time basically. When the car is running it runs perfectly. When it starts it starts perfectly. It never misfires or does anything else naughty.
When the car is refusing to start – it will totally refuse to start. I have tried setting the alarm, immobilizer and even opening manually with the key override. Boris will not start.
I have tried leaving the car for an hour and then trying again. Boris will not start.
