Q: range rover won't start

asked by on

it won't start, but sometime will start if tap on fuse box

My car has 139000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Tapping on the fuse box to get a vehicle to start is an indication of a possible electrical issue, possibly a damaged fuse box or main relay. Land Rovers are notorious for having these issues after about 15 years of use. I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to diagnose the precise source of this problem by completing a car is hard to start inspection first. Once they pinpoint the source, they’ll be able to recommend or complete the right repairs for you.
