    If it keeps coming loose, gently squeeze the connector with a pair of pliers to close the gaps up slightly.

    Hi all I am new to this forum, just to let you know what I have come across .
    I have a 2001 td4. Starts OK in the morning, but go onto Sainsburys petrol station and it would not start with fresh black stuff in :-(
    Immobiliser seems to have cicked in, or petrol pump switched off.

    So today I have been playing , start car first time fine. Switch off. Allow to beep and alarm set.
    Insert key will not start.
    The work round is.....

    Try and start 4 times each time not allowing it to beep and reset itself then it will finally start.

    Hope this helps somebody.

    Sounds like a dodgy ignition switch to me. It's a reasonably common problem.

    Nodge86 could it simply be the sensor round the ignition ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Normally, if repeated operation of the ignition switch makes it work, it's the ignition switch at fault

    the key fob on the freelander operates central locking only and not the immobiliser

    That depends on the year. Pre 2000 Freelander's used a transponder in the fob. Post 2000, 1A onwards chassis FL1s had the transponder in the key, so no fob was needed except to open the doors.;)
