    Lost communication with parking brake

    D4 2011 TDV6. The parking brake engages and disengages perfectly and works perfectly but I seem to get the general U0128 comms error referring to the brake regularly . Any ideas why? The circuitry is very simple and the brake works so why the error? thanks for any hints!

    BMS fused harness causing all the warning lights to come on?

    According to this document https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2014/SB-10101194-9340.pdf It could be this harness fuse which is blown. So, I looked for the part in question LR030454 and find that the price is 1500 pounds!!!! Surely they are not serious??

    Should I keep my 2018 LR Discovery Diesel long term?

    Yes you should. If you buy anything else you will lose a lot of money immediately and you should get et least 350k miles out of your current car and, no, you will not find anything as capable. Keep it. Change the oil and filter regularly (every 6k) and as long as the dreaded LR corrosion doesn't...

    headlight fuses

    Dear, dear - which genius decided that the fuse positions under the bonnet didn't need numbering for when the paper guide drops off? Or that you had to remove the headlight unit and grill to change a bulb? The same person I suppose who decided that the fuel filter should be hidden under a cross...

    headlight fuses

    OK, no connection between the rear auxiliary/cigar lighter and the headlight issues since the auxiliary still works but I have no headlights

    headlight fuses

    This seems to be an idiotic question but.. I have a 2011 LR4 and after plugging in a cool box into the rear cigar lighter, the headlights don't work so a fuse needs changing I guess. The workshop and user manuals make NO MENTION of which fuse is for the headlights! I am guessing it is in the...

    2013 LR4 I'm new need advice on wheels

    Frankly I doubt there is anything you can do that the standard vehicle and wheels can't. Save your money and take the wife out to dinner instead

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    Right. I did the one-man method as in the video I posted. Engine running. The pedal was pretty hard starting at the rear offside brake - very odd feeling. I pushed hard but could not feel proper movement as though fluid was being pushed through. I did that brake and then switched to the other...

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    quality marital time.. Right. When she realises she needs to pump the pedal 28 times (according to LR) for the rear, I think she would have good grounds for divorce!

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    Here is another very good video. Why is the two-person method ever used or proposed?

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    Thanks for advice so far. Every time I have bled brakes in the past I have done the two man method where I undo the bleed nozzle, they depress and then I tighten again. I have never done the single man lethod where you dip the outflow pipe into a bottle of fluid and simply pump and keep the...

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    Just ordered 5 liters of DOT4 so will get to work in a couple of days and report back. No faults indicated by the IID tool though

    LR4 brakes soft/hard

    I have posted about this before: The brakes are usually pretty sharp (only 35K miles) but sometimes when maneuvering, the pedal will be soft and pumping does not help. Take the foot off and try a couple of times and it is OK. On the road so far there has been no sign of anything amiss but at...

    LR4 brakes hard and won't start

    I previously posted about the brakes suddenly being soft but now have another issue which could be related. Stopped the car, switched off and then tried to start again. Dead. Ignition on but the starter doesn't fire. Can't move the lever out of Park either. Press the hard brake pedal...

    Discovery 4 soft brakes suddenly

    The brakes are usually pretty sharp (only 35K miles) but sometimes when maneuvering, the pedal will be soft and pumping does not help. Take the foot off and try a couple of times and it is OK. On the road so far there has been no sign of anything amiss but at very slow speeds I can stop sharp...

    Diesel injector cleaning

    I have the LR4 with the 3 litre v6 diesel (2011) It failed the pollution test probably because I took it first thing in the morning, cold. I can clean the injectors either by putting Liquid Moly pruge in the fuel or directly connecting the bottle to the fuel inlet to the injection pump. I am not...

    Brake master cylinder issue?

    Feels much better though there is more travel on the pedal than I like. When I press the pedal at very slow manoeuvring speeds like when I leave the garage, there is an odd sensation in the pedal as though it is sticking slightly so I need to dig into this because it could just be rubbing on...

    Brake master cylinder issue?

    Progress. The pedal was feeling a bit soft so I changed the front pads (rear are almost new). They still felt too soft and the pedal travel was still a bit long. I used the Mityvac which is the one for extracting sump oil but is the same principle. Just attached it to the bleed ****** and pumped...
