1999 Landrover Discovery 2 question:
Me -- I have a 1999 Landrover Discovery 2. It's been in good shape other than the wipers stopped working for letting it
set thrue the winter & the heater only comes on when it wants to.
Me -- Two weeks ago (on a Friday) 1. I drove up a really steep road/hill & stopped on a red light at the edge of it. Two minutes later
after the light turned green, I continued up the steep hill as I made a left turn. 2. Two blocks ahead, I had to stop at another
red light on a flat cement road. * 3. As I stepped on my go pedal to start driving again, the driving felt different (slower
driving + the go pedal felt partially harsh. 4. The lime M & S lights started blinking/flashing. 5. The red dot on the D for drive
started flashing. 6. I got/parked on the side of the road. 7. On the Manual it said that M was for 2nd shift. 8. Since I had the car on
park, I rolled the auto hand director to 3, 2, 1 but it only went as far as D. 9. A couple of minuteshs later, I noticed
that all the lights turned off but the car was still running. So 10. I turned the ignition off & 11. tried to re-start it 2
seconds later. 12. The car didnt start. 13. I had it towed home. 14. 3 days later (Monday), I had it towed again to my mechanics.
15. He said all he did was turn the keys (turned key knob 3 times) on the ignition & it started. 16. Although (good) battery
was exhausted). 17. I bought a new battery. 18. Everything looked like it went back to normal use. 19. Less than 2 days later, I
started car again, both arrowed light signals came on, rear emergency lights came on & then car automatically shut
off 1 minute later. (I had to go to work). 20. 11 hours later, I took the battery to Oreilly. 21. They said that battery was
at 330 (regular 880). 22. I had it charged back to 880. 23. I havent put the battery back on car ever since.
**** [SIZE="5"][SIZE="7"]Me -- Is it possibly from not pushing the Hill Descent Control button as I was going up a steep hill? **
What could of possibly happened that the car acted up & Especially that my battery (s) energy gets exhaussted within less than a
couple of days time? This has never happened before & I've had the car for 8 years.
P.S. I didn't push the Hill Descent Control button.
THANKS FOR THE INFO EVERYBODY!
