I took it for a new free replacement battery today. It said it was cranking out more than rated. Battery place said it may be alternator. Bet it is the starter though. CarMax doesn't want to mess with it but surely if it's the starter they can do that. I don't really want to have it towed 25 miles to the dealer if I don't have to.

Thanks for all this frightening info, I needed to fit a new battery so I played safe like this.
I connected a spare battery (From my lawnmower) to the battery leads & with the engine running disconnected the vechicles battery & replaced it with a new one. I then disconnected the spare. Everything seems OK now so Success !

this is a huge issue across LR2s from 2007 on.

the class action suit has been in the news now as of August 2015. Just google Landrover LR2 class action suit.

I recommend all LR2 owners with the issue contact the firm that is listed in the news articles....personally I am tired of this. We cannot use our auto light setting, the sunroof does it. etc. It just drains.....I had to jump ours again this morning after 2 nights without use.

Don't bother with landrover dealerships....they will just keep replacing the battery and you will keep paying for it....We have already replaced the battery once.
