You say that there has been times when the car didn't crank. Then I heard you say that after your mechanic worked on the car, he found a way to start the car again.

Sound like your DME could be loosing the synchronization with the EWS, or vice verse.

Ask your mechanic if he has tried to do an EWS to DME Alignment to get the car to start.

If this is true, have the mechanic reprogram the EWS and test the car for a few days. (I have instructions on how to to this.)

Otherwise you will need to replace your DME, which is not a big deal.
Hi sorry to bring up old thread but It's totally relevant and unfortunately we don't halve a erm land rover section I also have a td4 that wouldn't start so I replaced the ews and realigned it then car starts for a day or so then loses alignment so i fit new battery aligned it again and I drove home. Just gone to go out and it's lost sync again!!! Any ideas Why they lose sync it's costing me 50 per resync!!! It still cranks when it.doesnt start and it's an auto.
