Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologise for any delay.

I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Dear customer, actually if it can be a little worrisome that the vehicle has cut off in this way while operating, normally this is generally not a very good reference and the technician is correct to the power is this fault related to belt/chain problems, although you are indeed having error codes regarding the accessory belt that effectively supports the alternator, but I find it necessary to make a diagnosis with a tool that has the Range rover software, The AA technicians generally do not already have these tools,As their equipment is more simple, it would be good to start with this proper diagnosis if not, anyway you will have to proceed sooner or later to check the belts, so it is also good to start here.

If it was the belt, what sort of money would I be looking at?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 1 year ago.

If the problem is the belt, the cost is around £500, including labour and cambelt kit.

IT is better to replace the kit to make sure all will be workiing well, and to avoid further damage.
