A friend left his car with me and gone overseas, I had the need to shift it but careful not to touch any controls, overnight I noticed the rear interior light is on, I can open the door with the key and start it but the rear door remains locked.
I’m not game to touch any buttons or knobs.
Can someone please tell me how to turn the light off?

What model is it? If it is Discovery 3 you can hold the button on the interior light switch for 3 seconds and it will switch off all interior lighting. If not a D3 try emailing the Range Rover Club Australia NSW and Im sure their members will be able to assist.

There is also a couple that do LR service in Darwin who are members here, cant recall names but when I was in Darwin last I spoke to the lady and she was very helpful. I am sure someone else will be able to provide their details.

Wayne D, Would that be Carla & Steve Chippendale you are thinking of ?
If so then that would be my Daughter and son in law, and yes they would go out of their way to help people.
Very good at fixing Landies, but she didn't get that from me.

On a D2, if you turn the key to the right a second time it will open all the other doors.

There is also a switch with a door on it next to the clock . If you press the top of the switch it will unlock all the doors.

If all else fails the light should go out in 10 minutes, unless it has been left in the ON position , in which case I haven't found out yet what happens.

Thanks Wayne and Philip,

Now that the sun came out I climb in and turned the light off at the switch next to the light, now all is well.
Thanks again

Hi Joe.
If you want to know anything about any Landie see the aulro.com site and all will be revealed.
There's nothing they don't know about them.
Cheers.

Hi Joe
I have a D3 - when opening the doors with the remote - pressing the button once will only open the drivers door, press the button twice and it will open all other doors.
Hope this helps you next time.

Bye

Depends how you have the remote programmed - I have mine setup so that one press of the button will unlock everything.

Hi Garry

I set it up that way for security, so if I am on my own no one can get in the passenger door. You never know who is watching you when you are going to your car.
