RANGE RANGE P38 STARTING PROBLEM

1997 Rover Range Rover

Electrical problem
1997 Range Rover V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

Hello,

I have a problem with my Range rover p38 1997.

It cannot start, the battery is new, the check engine light is on, but when I turn the key to start the car, nothing happens, and all the lights on the dashboard disappear. I don't have any click. And I had a smoke coming from the starter.

Any advice on that?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Check you are getting a hot feed to the starter. If you are, you will need to replace the starter motor
