Customer Question

Hi

Hi ..

When this happens do you hear any loud sucktion noise, or have any smoke come out the exhaust pipe.

Who did the diagnostic check and what scan tool did they use .

Hi Michael


Sorry to drag this out but when you go into limp mode a code is stored , if no codes are
stored then you have a possible ECM malfunction so we need to be 100% sure the right tools are being used as aftermarket tool will not always have the capability to dig into all the system to find a problem .
In some cases like yours i have no choice but to take the car into the Land Rover dealers to be checked with there scan tool and have a complete system scan done .

Now is your garage a Land Rover dealership .
