Has anyone got a diagram of the tail door lock mechanism so I can see wear the broken spring is ?

Remote Locking/Unlocking & Immobiliser problems

Post by Kev » Mon Feb 06, 2006 9:44 pm

Hi folks .. only just found this forum. I own a 1999 reg Discovery TD5 GS .. over the past week I have had intermittent problems unlocking/locking the car using the remote key-fob, at first I suspected the internal batteries were low, so replaced the battery in both fobs .. the problem still persists.

I have noticed that the problem seems worse when the outside temperature drops i.e. first thing in a morning (the car is un-garaged) when I have to resort to unlocking the car using the key & entry code method .. at other times the fobs work perfectly well.

I would be grateful if some kind soul could suggest the cause of the problem & perhaps steer me in the right direction to getting it fixed.

Many thanks in advance,

Kev .

Remote Locking/Unlocking problems

Alan,

Very many thanks for the prompt response .. would you believe the thing worked perfectly this morning ? Admittedly the outside temp here in Lincs has risen slightly .. I will however give the people you suggested a ring & discuss it with them.

Again, thanks very much .

Kev .

Ash - do you have any photos of this?? Or can you explain how? I have a desperate need to get the disco driveable by saturday again (I require it for work) and although i've ordered a set they won't be here until next week?

Most earnestly looking forward to your response.

Steve

Joycey,

I can copy a page from the haynes manual for you but I doubt the pictures will be very clear. Is it a Disco 200 Series

I'v got a couple of pictures here which show the lock linkage rods in the rear door and one showing the location for the dreaded spring (white arrow at the bottom of picture 3) if thats any help.
