I've been told that throughout the day the computer systems will ping each other and kind of make status reports. This will reset the system and can get rid of the fault codes. The Supercharged model came with 20-inch wheels and Brembo-brand front brakes. Jan 05, 2011 Yes, this is the correct battery replacement. Just finished an 80 mile return motorway run after picking it up. Oh its covered 102000 miles and is upto date with all the services.
Most likely to be a wiring fault, there is a multiplug behind the front lefthand wheelarch liner that gets corroded. If you are lucky it will be okay. I did a search and found bits and pieces, but nothing substantial. The dealer has replaced the battery, one key and replaced the Ecu but the problem is still not gone. The system fault has now occurred six times in the last 10 days, twice this morning on the way into work.
One easy experiment is just to remove all the brake and tail light bulbs or both rear assemblies and see if anything clears. I have no problems, although doing anywere between 500 - 1500 miles a week keeps the battery topped up. I personally wouldn't be surprised if they read as something similar such as low supply voltage, canbus errors, etc. As it turns out, Hill Decent is related to the brake lights as when Hill Decent kicks in, the brake lights normally illuminate even though you have not touched the brake pedal. Landrover hasn't been able to diagnose the problem. The center dial is the terrain response; you simple dial it to whatever tricky terrain condition you may find yourself in and it will adjust things like braking and throttle response.
Anyone have this issue with a 2006 or any other year? Sadly dispite my best efforts with some electrospray to dispel the water , wet 'n'dry and a needle file its still :censored: : On top of the electrical faults, the suspension is stuck on low and it's in limp mode :? So a new prop is on order and not at a bad price either from the stealers, £275+. About a week after we bought it weve had it 6 months we started to hear a slight whine from the gearbox area we think, its hard to pin point where the noise is and recently its started playing up. When at speed all seems ok. I have 2007 Landrover freelander 2, buy a brand new 5 years ago, running almost 130k. If you do take off the rear diff, don't forget to mark at each end and on the diff flange oo-er so you align it back up. My parents ars rather old and I live on the other side of the world but have the feeling that the dealer in just incompetent. .
Thanks its been into Land Rover 5 times with the same fault in total they have had it for 11days and keep saying its a low battery or its not charging its going in again on the 24th i just want to get as many ideas as possible as i only get about 15miles and the fault kicks in and lowers all the suspension and the special programs don't work so i have to turn the engine off to reset it its driving me insane. . . Unless ive got a naff disk! You can follow the instructions in my Brake Bible, I thing it covers everything you'd need here. Got to change the front and rear pads today so i will have a good check of the bearings. I will post my findings.
Just make sure that they use the Shell M1374. If it were an audi or similar for instance, you'd have to go and have the abs light turned off by a garage, but the lights on my d3 went off without even driving it any distance. Every time it is fixed by turning off and restarting, clearing fault and drives good with good power after the restart. Rad that if you put it into offroad height you can then cycle though the special programs. On the passenger side rear lamps, the backup light is out, I changed it, and it remains blown. You say that it resets on a restart. I 'm reluctant to sugest throwing parts at it without knowing what codes are present.
I did however encounter some problems along the way. I still think it's your battery, how old is it? Please read any landrover forums before buy landrover. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. Blue colour, anything but drug dealer black. Every morning i get a message on the dash that says 'hdc fault system not available', although when i press the hdc it seems to be working fine.
After fitting the pads and having a short test drive, the abs, traction, hill descent and epb lights came on and suspension dropped to access mode. Discuss all things Land Rover. Fitted a new sensor this morning and all is well. Doubtful, but it will save you having to keep on going to the garage for diagnosis? If the latter, then that's a bad sign. I am a 300tdi man myself. Just charged it up tonight and hoping it ok in the morning. Hope any of this helps.
Thanks I have 2007 Landrover freelander 2, buy a brand new 5 years ago, running almost 130k. I don't have money to throw away. Later models have a modified loom to cure the problem. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. If it was a battery problem surely it would always be there. They now suspect that the replacement injection pump may have developed a fault as well. We now dock the key fob, press start, wait a second then press the clutch and press start again.
We'd travelled 5km since the purchase and it had done a grand total of 14km. And its throwing a P0504 code. I'm trying to find the solution through internet such as google and try one by one, but the car still wont start. Anyone out there know of this? With genuine bulbs, all filaments are vertical - it matters as when a vertical filament burns out, it tends not not drop across the other filament. Also when climing up hills if its in a high gear and about 2500 rpm it starts to shudder again until you kick it down to a lower gear. Googled the battery and found an actual Interstate franchise store nearby where they tested my battery for free this morning.
