LOL - FIRST Mishap

So out and about yesterday, doing a carboot, leaves key in ignition, all doors shut, guess what happens, car locks itself with key inside LOL.

not sure if you can turn this off, haven't done any googling yet.

Luckly i called a friend who picked me up , to grab the spare key, i wasnt too far from home, this didnt open the doors ether using the fob, had to use the emergency door opening using the key in the passenger door. !! ill not do that again . Laughing


Otherwise 560 miles done, no other issues at the moment. had a good look over the service history and the timing belt was done at 38K, its full landrover SH, is this normal time interval. ? and whats the recommendations for getting it done again.

Thanks

Didn't think you could lock the keys in the vehicle especially when in the ignition but someone more knowledgeable will be along soon to clarify I'm sure
As for the belts, it's 105k or 7 years as far as I know, 38k seems very low to me
Enjoy the beast, do all the preventative maintenance you can

Depending on what year yours is, you might need to look up 'oil pump' on this forum.
Also ZF recommend a gearbox flush and refill around 60,000 miles. It's known as a megaflush. Not particularly cheap especially if you go for the steel sump conversion, but will prolong the useful life of the torque converter and g/box.
Absolutely fabulous vehicles, but you do need to spend a bit on them! Enjoy. Thumbs Up
