    How easy is it to charge back up ? and can i put a solar charger on it ? sun has been out here to day for about 5 hours ?

    Problem is, it;s parked against the garage doors and i cant get in !

    Call out LR assistance and put up with the stick you’ll get. Better still tell them it was the wife’s fault! Thumbs Up

    If you have tow electrics fitted, you can give it power (up to 10A) via the constant live pin. The 13 pin Cteck charger adapter for the D4 works well with the D5.

    Jump start it first to get it running, After the local car wash managed to run the battery down on my D4 I got myself a jump starter. Once started I would drive it around for a while and then park it up and connect the battery to a charger.
    I'm not sure if a solar powered charger operating 5 hours during the day would be sufficient to charge a dead battery.

    Can you lift bonnet?
    On the drivers side inner wing there is a small black plastic box that has a clipped lid
    Lift the lid and this is where you can attach the positive cable of your battery charger
    The negative goes to the bare stud just in front of the plastic box
    I have the comfort charger cable connected there and trickle charge my battery that way

    Namib Orange 1st Edition with black roof and wheels.

    Zero Volt.

    Any suggestions as to a starter power pack that will function when the vehicle battery is totally dead (Zero Volts). Most seem to need to "see" the battery (Low Volts).
