That sounds like a game changer
As I’m stubborn, I did mine by myself. A helper or two would have been nice. The job turned out okay anyway. No one but me (or someone who’s done these) would notice my imperfections. I also needed 3 cans of glue.
Richard, your missus is quite the lady. Removing the old glue is the worst part of the job.
I’m on this site and on Landroverforums (for the Disco). I haven’t heard any such issues with a Nanocom. I think the one in question is probably quite rare.
On the other hand, I got the RSW EAS Unlock a couple of years before I got my Nano. The Nano is definitely easier to use, but so far, the RSW unit has done everything I’ve needed (I’m 5 1/2 years into my P38 now), so at 1/4 the price it’s really good value.
Thanks for all the info on the LED’s. I’m going to try using some in a few places.
Garvin, is the BeCM okay with LED’s in side, brake and reverse positions? I was wondering if the lower current draw would give a message on the instrument panel?
It is not at all like Duct tape. It’s very thin very sticky tape that lasts way longer than duct tape, though it’s shear strength is very limited. It’s most often used here in building construction to seal vapour barriers, which is really exactly what I am using it for on the Rangie. It’s thin and virtually see through. People actually often use it to temporarily repair a broken red tail light lens. From a bit of a distance you don’t even know it’s there. The light shines right through it like the lens that broke.
I salvaged 3 valve blocks to get enough good NRV’s to make one good valve block.
I wouldn’t be without my Yakima racks, but I either have a canoe or skis or bikes on top a lot of the time. You can probably sell your Thule’s.
You are probably beyond this point, but I make a nice cut of the shredder with a razor knife and then reseal it with Tuck Tape (might be a Canadian brand name).
I’ve recut in the same spot several times and resealed again with very good results. It seals well and you don’t see it once the door card is back on.
Ok great. Thanks.
Just connect a wire between the two, you can leave the existing wiring connected.
So I could just jumper the two wires together and still leave them connected to the BECM? I’ve had these two wires marked with a piece of tape for a couple of years, in case I would ever need to bypass the BECM to start mine. I would have expected to cut both wires to the BECM, and then jumper the two together. If the BECM won’t mind, I don’t really see a downside to jumping the 2 wires (I seriously doubt that anyone will want to steal my 26 year old car).
Ok, I’m not sure now if my immobilizer was as I said. I tried it again today (I locked it with the fob last night and unlocked it with the key just now). This time the engine was immobilized. So I’d say I was wrong in my previous post.
We used to have those around here too, but not in 20+ years. I suspected not enough people worked on their own cars anymore to make such a place pay for itself.
I’m hoping it’s a forever fix.
It’s interesting how the views of keeping the TBHeater vary. For the first year or so of having my Disco 2, I frequented the Discoweb forum. The general consensus there was that you should never bypass it, as several members there were sure that they experienced throttle icing after deleting it. For the last year and a half I’ve been on Landroverforums where the consensus is you should delete it as it does no good. I think with the upgraded TBH there’s no need to delete.
This is it. Sports Car Centre, Edmonton. Not cheap for what it is but it’s better quality than the original. It’s too early for me to say that it will last longer but I think it’s been 2 years since I installed it with no issues.
I put a n upgraded one on my D2 some time ago. It’s made of thicker material. I’ll try to find out where I got it from.
I must have entered the EKA with my Nanocom at some point because I can lock it with the remote and unlock it with the key without any issues.
Ok , good information. Thanks
I had also read the the 315 MHz fobs were NLA, but I thought I should give it a try. I expected them to say they weren’t available. Yes I gave them the VIN.
I also need to try to get a couple of keys cut. The lock shop I’ve checked doesn’t have the blanks and said they wouldn’t cut one even if they did. Maybe I can order a couple of blanks from the UK and find someone who will cut them.
