A no start (no crank) condition can be caused by a weak battery. A defective ignition switch may also cause the same condition. Proper diagnoses of the problem will be necessary to perform the correct repair.

This is a common fault on Freelanders, easy fix. The cable that connects onto the solenoid above the starter motor is nearly always a poor fit onto the spade terminal. Pull the cable off, gently squeeze the spade connector and re-connect onto solenoid ensuring a tight fit. Job done. Dealers will convince you to buy new battery and when that doesn't fix it, you need to book it in for a 'diagnostic' check which will always result in some horrific costing 'blah blah sensor' which will of course fix the problem. Hmmmmmm
