1999 92k miles Disco 2 won't start????

I went to do the Sea Foam into the intake manifold via the pcv hose turned upside down. Well, I turned the hose upside down (disconected only from the valve cover) then Without pouring any Sea Foam into the hose, I went to start the vehicle. The igniton turned over as if the vehicle wanted to start. but it failed to start. The hazard light started flashing and would not stop weither I pushed the hazard buttonor remove the key. I then put the hose back into the original place and clamped it on. I tryed to start the disco and it still didn't start by this time I started to get annoyed by the flashers clicking and removed the turn signal relays. I haven't pulled the plugs to see if any gas is on them nor have I checked to see if I am getting any spark at the plugs. I have no clue what could have set this off. I am hoping this problem is just complecated, late model, computer driven bull sh!t that is in the best intrest of the eco system malfulction or function.

1) Open Hood
2) Locate Battery
3) Remove Negative Battery Terminal Connector
4) Remove Positive Battery Terminal Connector
5) Attach Positive Battery Terminal Connector
6) Attach Negative Battery Terminal Connector
7) Close Hood
8) Open Door
9) Sit Down Inside Vehicle
10) Locate Ignition
11) Insert Key
12) Start Vehicle

Seriously, when your turn signals are stuck flashing and your D2 wont start, just un-do whatever you fucked with, completely remove the battery connectors and then put them back, it will start right up.

Judging by your tone of voice, it appears as though you might not be fully informed on the finer points of Land Rover ownership. As a result, I do not suggest you disconnect the battery just yet. Bad things can happen with DIIs when the battery is disconnected without one being fully prepared for the full impact.

You make reference to the turn signals and dash lights flashing, eh?

Let's make sure nothing was disturbed when you removed the hose to put the voodoo juice in it. Then, let's close the doors and lock, unlock, lock and unlock the driver's door and try it again.

You may have set the alarm off, you may have tripped the inertia switch. My money's on the alarm. Either way, right now, you're fawked.

Great. Hopefully, your attitude toward your truck will improve (especially since your fault was pilot-error induced) and you won't freak out next time.

Your truck is merely testing your mettle. You passed this test, but not by much.

..remember, your Rover is always testing you and judging your reaction. Hopefully you whispered a thank you when it started.

Damn LR's are almost as bad as Italian vehicles...

I did tell the disco 2 thank you for starting but I didn't whisper it, lets just say the block behind my house heard my thanking it. The more and more I mess with this thing the more and more I realize how really complex Land Rover is compaired to domestic manufactured vehicles. I'm also finding that locating parts locally for that thing is nearly impossible. I work as a part service manager at Autozone and we keep about 3 Land Rover parts in stock and that's at 3 different location, same with every other local part house.
Again thanks for the help guys!

just a warning...

MOST people on Pirate have LR's that either never had said complex crap or have long since ripped it all out. After all, the D2 was designed with heavy BMW influence, which is certainly 'not good' for simplicity.

No offense, but DWeb may be a better source for you, unless there is plasma cutting in your future...

Bah! I for one work on them all the time and am willing to help where I can.

I do have significant disdain for the electrickery on the newer trucks though!

FIRE!!! FIRE!!!! FIRE!!!!

I am Cornholio!! I Need TP for my Bunghole!!!

Seriously most of those here don't delve into such electronics without owning a manual such as the RAVE (plus it causes much drinking).. great self help! Otherwise like our Discosaurus says DWEB might have better tech for this type of problem....
