    what year and engine is fitted,if it,s a v8 thor you can,t wire it in to the fuse box as per the fitting instructions,as i had problems wiring mine up,i ended up speaking to the tech department at solihull,and the reply was basicly buy an aftermarket split charge from a caravan shop,and wire it in as per there manufacture instructions,and then run the wire from the socket into the split charge.typical land rover.

    Thank you for the information Andy.

    I wonder what will go wrong when I disconnect and then reconnect.

    so long as you have your eka code and radio code you should be ok,but if memory serves me well,the kit is in 2 halfs,i fitted the socket and ran the wiring down to the front first,then i just removed the earth lead from the battery and fixed the relays to the body work and the little earth cable thats when i relised i couldn,t fit the wire into the fuse box,as there was no room,2 weeks later,after numerous phone calls i removed the relay and it,s associated wires,and fitted one from a caravan shop,which was a bit of a bugger

    have a look in my font of all knowledge thread, I put a guide to removing & fitting a new battery without losing all ya codes etc. basically you need a boost starter pack or second battery and a set of jumpleads.
