So I get to work today and when I park, turn off the engine, the car starts to chime and won't stop.

The message says press brake to start and shows the start/stop engine button which I have never seen.

The display shows this:

If you accidently pressed the Start/Stop button a second time when turning the car off, this might result. I'm just guessing here... If I recall correctly, if you press the Start/Stop button without stepping on the brake pedal, you turn on the electrics but don't start the engine.

Yes, if you press the button without the brake pedal down, that is the screen you will see.

Ah, thanks - guess i didn't realize I may have pressed it twice....

With these minor glitchy electronics issues coming up, I am getting sensitized to them....:eek:

Double Tap

I've done the "double tap" myself once or twice unintentionally. Yeah, the button push without the brake pedal is needed to read the Vehicle Info on the menu - grayed out when running. That's the only way I've found to check tire pressures - another annoying bit. Seems like a pretty useless restriction but I guess some of the stuff you can reset from that menu would need a restart to take effect.

Got another one for you. Turn off the car but don't get out. Lock the car with the key fob from inside the car. The mirrors retract and the electronics turn off. All good. Now step on the brake and turn the car on. The mirrors will not move out into position. Not good. The only way I could figure to get the mirrors back into position was to turn the car off, get out lock and unlock it with the key fob outside the car. What's up with that?

Bizarre :|

The car needs an unlock signal from the remote to deploy the mirrors. Starting the car is a whole different set of instructions.
Curious: Why would you lock yourself in the car with the remote and start it?

To unfold the side mirrors, press both left and right mirror adjustment buttons at the same time. This trick also works for forcing retract the mirrors. There is no need to restart the engine.

It's described in the owner's handbook. If you have a US model, it should be around page 68:
"Press both mirror selector switches together to fold/unfold the mirrors (power-fold option)"

Very good little bit of info !

Thanks - it would come in handy for a drive thru car wash or navigating a tight space !;)

Oh how I love this forum - it's becoming more and more useful!

Thanks for this tip, I had no idea about this one

Agree on the annoyance of only being able to check tire pressures when car is not running. So this one is somewhat covered in the owners manual, regarding the automatic shut off of the car without pressing the Start/Stop button. Unbuckle the seat belt with the car in Park and it shuts off. Here's what happened to me though. Stopped at a traffic light with car in D, unbuckled my seatbelt to get something, took my foot off the brake to go and car shut off. I think this is covered in the owners manual somewhere which I don't have access to at the moment. This seems a little sketchy to me.

It's supposed to be a feature. It's supposed to work when you park the car, like in your garage. It doesn't always work reliably for me. Sometimes it cuts off if I unhook the seat belt. Sometimes I have to lift off the brake first. It would be nice if it worked all the time because then I wouldn't have to press the off button when I pull into my garage.

You're correct, as long as Intelligent Stop/Start is activated and the auto stop has kicked in, unbuckle will shut down the engine.

This is documented somewhere around page 122:
"DRIVER EXIT
Note: The Driver exit feature is only available when Intelligent stop/start is enabled.To prevent the vehicle from being inadvertently left in a driveable condition, the vehicle will detect when a driver is not present, and automatically switch off the ignition system..................."

One of the conditions is:
"The driver's seat belt is unbuckled"

Battin4th - the OM says that should only happen when the car is still in Auto Stop/Start mode AND Auto Stop was activated - another reason I hate that I can't set that to be "Off" as a default. I could then turn it on for appropriate situations but a lot of my driving is stop and go and it is simply annoying (not to mention that you can't unbuckle the driver's seat belt without the car shutting down).

olezay - thanks for the tip from the OM - I've missed that one in my several reads of the thing. Going to have to go look it up now!

davez26 - was resetting a transmission fault with a stop/start and wanted to shut down all the electronics - see my thread here: http://www.discoverysport.net/forum/land-rover-discovery-sport-general-discussion/4361-2-wheel-drive-only-its-baaaack.html

P.S. Here's the online manual: Land Rover Owner Information but its very choppy...

Anybody know where we can get a PDF version for downloading it onto the computer/smartphone? I would sure love a digital version...
