This is not such a bad problem once you have had the system hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool to check for what ever has malfunctioned .

When a sensor fails on this land rover then this will in most cases (depending on the sensor) trip on the traction control light and some times the check engine light .

I must stress that you need to find a shop or dealer that has the needed scan tool to check for all system codes , which can mean a scan tool that is capable to read the complete system where most generic tools can only collect engine and transmission codes ..

You may only have a problem with the VSS vehicle speed sensor or even a wheel speed sensor ,but this you will know when the correct scan tool is used ..

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back with the reply box below and not the poor or bad service button ,

For further assistance there is no extra charge after accepting.
