    2006 LR3 Christmas tree - dark instrument panel - then dead

    Sounds good. So much of this truck is black magic. I feel like I need to perform an exorcism, sage the thing and knock on wood every time I leave the house...

    2006 LR3 Christmas tree - dark instrument panel - then dead

    Yes, I was watching a number of things including the battery. The batt voltage was 13.9v until it wasn’t. After it died I saw it at 7.9v. After the shop looked it over pronouncing the charging system and battery fine I drove it another two hours on the freeway only to have it die again - same...

    Suspension dropping in front - seems normal, no errors, after tight turns?

    Mine does a similar thing. I thought I was crazy for a while. But here's a different one. When I get out of the car after turning it off either the front or the back end will lower. Just pisses air and settles an inch. Its unpredictable which end but doesnt seem right to do this. I get a little...

    Unwelcome Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

    I've posted the question to another LR forum and the consensus seems to be as you described - a steering angle sensor. It seems that a collar portion of a sensor that attaches to the steering shaft located near the pedals gets shifted off center and needs to be re-aligned and secured, then...

    Unwelcome Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

    After a fantastic round trip through the Rockies last season I've been experiencing unusual, unexpected and unwelcome intervention of the DSC or Dynamic Stability Control when I navigate sweeping turns. The phenomenon manifests itself by activating the brakes (loud grumbling) and generally...

    Sunroof Wind Noise

    Are you sure its the sunroof? I Just spent six hours on the freeway coming back from Death Valley listening to the roof rack channel cover next to the sunroof buzz. I thought it was the sunroof at first, but under certain conditions the tape (for the lack of a better term) buzzes like crazy.

    Oversized Spare Tire mod

    Did you notice any issues with the heat shield not being on? Or does the airflow under the car cool the tread sufficiently? I recently squeezed my 285/65/18 spare into the space after removing the bumpers (easy), letting out some air and coaxing it in with my floor jack. It all fits up nice and...

    Online Land Rover parts

    Thanks for the advice Kingfish... I've read from posts on this forum and others that the easiest course of action is to replace the arms bushings and all. I figure that I can replace the bushings in the original arms at my leisure without the pressure of having my truck on blocks and out of...

    Online Land Rover parts

    I'm starting to search for lower control arms to replace my 70K old clunkers (literally). I've found them on parts.com, raceparts.com, and partsgeek.com. Have you had experience with these or others in terms of quality, service, support, etc? Are there others that you would recommend?

    Slack drivers side seatbelt

    My drivers side seat belt tensioner seems to have given up the fight. I have to throw the buckle onto the seat as part of my exit from the vehicle so it doesn't get slammed by the door. I've pulled it all the way out and checked to see if the belt is folded over but it seems to be fine. It also...

    Dyno?

    Noticed this on a LR maintenance checklist; CAUTION: Do not perform two wheel roller tests. Loaded I/M testing of permanent four wheel drive or traction control equipped vehicles must be conducted on a four wheel drive synchronized dynamometer. Otherwise a non-loaded test procedure must be followed.

    Towing - Who has towed what?

    I just pulled a 3500 lb '67 Airstream three hours up the coast with no issues. I previously towed the AS with an F-250 (overkill). The LR3 was just right. I ran a prodigy brake controller that was pretty much 'plug and play' and was a great help. Side note: the CHP gave me a ticket for doing 60...

    "POP" - Suspension Fault

    I just took my LR3 in for the same fault and was told it was the dessicant filter. I spent some time on the forums this morning and read a similar post where the owner heard a pop and when he opened the compressor housing found dessicant beads everywhere. I couldnt find the link...

    All-Terrain tire options for an HSE?

    I have a 2006 HSE and am looking for an all terrain tire for occasional but serious off-roading. I’ve researched the matter starting with nwoods excellent post here http://blog.nextstepdesigns.com/?p=46 and checked out some of the options for 19’’ wheels. Not much out there. I think I looked at...

    Mileage vs. Age

    Can you elaborate? My sense would be that they would gradually refine the model, but I've not seen where exactly the improvement is.

    Mileage vs. Age

    Thanks for the initial reply's. A couple of questions; 1) Were there any significant improvements between the '05 and subsequent years? 2) How does the warranty work? Is it 4yr/50K whichever comes first? If so the '06 and older (in '10) would be out of warranty automatically? does a car with 30K...

    Thanks for the initial feedback. A couple of questions; 1) were there significant bugs worked out in the '05 to '06 transition and 2) how does the warranty work? is it 4yr/50K whichever comes last? or is the '06 and older automatically out of the warranty period? BTW; i would be keeping the car...

    Mileage vs. Age

    I'm close to purchasing a 2005-2007 LR3 and have a question that has me scratching my head; Which would you favor for purchase (all other things being equal) an older -2005- with fewer miles -~35K-, or a newer -2007- with more miles -~55K-? What are the advantages/disadvantages to each?
