TD5 warning lights???

Geobloke

Posting Guru
How do peeps? Right since Eva is currently off the road with a headlight problem I am driving Woodchippings TD5 110 DCPU.

It has some warning lights up on the dash what do they mean? - ABS and TC

I know what the abbreviations stand for, just not why they have come up. IIRC the TC and ABS are linked together too on TD5s.

Damn this electrickery millarky!!!

Have to say it is a gorgeous truck to drive, plenty of grunt and cruises nicely too!
 
Do they stay on or just at start up?
The systems are linked together
Similar system on a Freelander, sometimes mine came on then I would switch car off restart and they would remain off

Oh yeah sorry, they come on as they should at startup and remain on. IIRC they should go out after a while.

When I said that I meant they came on when I was driving but restarting would cause them to go off
 
Its usualy an ABS sensor has broken, this means that the TC cant work so both systems go ofline ...

IT can also be a wring fault (as it was on my D11) or a ealy ECU that cant forgest how old is the car?

CHeers Aiden. HAve just booked the beast in for a plug-in session at the garage, will see what that tells us!

Computer says - ERROR! :eek:
 
Best of luck

The wrining fault showes op on the computer as a sensor ... just to confuse things but the sensor is the most likley thing

They can be an absolute **** to sort as my mums disco had that problem and in the end we disconnected the ABS system as it was malfunctioning and causing it to brake erraticly and dangerously.

Oh aaaarrssssseeeee hats! The computer says that one of the shuttle valves is goosed and to fix it the whole control unit has to be replaced!!! :(

The worst thing is that it is £850 + VAT for a pattern part (over a grand for a LR one) :eek: :eek:

For reference the part number is SRB101550 :(

Now I have to go and tell mum the bad news, is her 110 really! :(
 
Uhhh bad news, Have you tried PMing JonV8 as the fault codes are not always the best indicators? just in case
