    Hi everyone sorry not been on lately here is the post especially for tiff,this only takes about 30 mins to do,the parts you will need is a 5 pin relay,locally sourced or landrover sell them part no is YWB10032L cost of £6.07 +vat you will need a resistor 2k ohm value locally sourced.
    tools you will need spanner to take off battery terminal,philips screwdriver soldering iron an solder some insulating tape.
    first of all disconect battery -ve terminal,unsrcew top of ecm cover,remove ecm and sit on top battery area on a cover obviously no sparks here.look into the loom of the ecm you are looking for a grey/blue trace wire this is the temp sender wire,cut this wire 3 inches back from ecm connector so you have enough room to join to the relay to terminal 30,before you join this wire the resistor needs to be bent in a horse shoe shape as the resistor goes between terminal 30 and terminal 87a,so to recap cut blue/grey wire and 1 end of resistor into crimping terminal and crimp, the other end of the resistor goes into the other cut side of the blue /grey wire and crimp with resistor connect to terminal 87a,terminal 85 goes to earth i normally cut into the collecting of black wires in the ecm box with plastic covered ends solder it to 1 of these here.the last connection is from the glow plug relay which is situated next to the ecm in the box,you need to join a wire to the red/white wire at the the glow plug relay this then joins onto terminal 86 of the relay,this is now all done wrap tape all round the relay and just place inside with the ecm and glow plug relay,hope my instructions are clear if not please email or post a message im going to look in my shed tomorow to see if i can find some resistors will let you know if i find any.

    OK then Tigapiglet. Thanks for the info. however, would you like to earn a few quid and sort this out for me. I know you are from Somerset and I live about 80 miles away but I need this sorted now cause its really p***ing me off. If you can do this please email me at rwhitworth@tiscali.co.uk Look forward to hearing from you soon. Richard.

    I just joined as I am having problems when starting my 1996 Range Rover (2.5D BMW engine) when it's warm.
    I saw your post which appears to be same problem but your detail is to technical for me
    Any chance of simple terminology and maybe some diagrams

    Hi there.

    My 97 2.5DT would appear to have exactly the same fault. If at all possible could you send me the diagram so that I can do the mod.

    My address is.

    Mike Ashforth
    Castercliffe Fort Barn
    Southfield Lane
    Burnley
    BB10 3RQ.

    If this works, free drinks for TIGAPIGLET!

    Cheers

    well i have sat here for the last 3 hours drawing out this diagram and writing out all the details for you,i do hope that you can deciepher my english not bad at typing abso crap at writting nevermind i was told at school that i was 2 stupid 2 be a mechanic,so i asked if i knew what 10 + 10 was and the capital of india would that help me use a spanner? teachers dont like smart ass kids so i plugged his beetle exhaust with a nice big potato and laughed as he could not start his car, never call a child stupid!
