My dash lit up like a christmas tree after driving in snow.

    Thanks all! I ended up replacing the battery and cleaning out all the speed sensors. It was a mess down there! lol. This seems to have fixed all the warning lights. Hopefully it stays that way!

    These cars very very sensitive to battery voltage, I am glad you were able to get it fixed with the new battery.

    My LR3 had intermittent warnings for Suspension Height, Transmission Fault, Air pump failure and Parking break fault. This was going on for about 6 months, the battery was 4 years old. I replaced the battery in December, now no more faults, every thing is working fine. Just crazy!. But I am glad I didn't have to debug a bunch of issues.

    Thanks! I had no idea this car could be so sensitive! Lol. I just hit that 80k mile mark and it seems there's something every week! Now I'm getting this weird whirring noise (not very loud) when I push the gas. It sounds like it's coming from near the steering area. Also, since I changed the battery, my windows aren't a one-touch for rolling up anymore. I'm sure there's a simple fix in the dash computer, I just can't find it!

    I do love this vehicle and she's awesome at taking us on the backroads out here in Colorado, I just wish the issues weren't so expensive! :)

    No dash computer necessary. The one-touch feature is always disabled after a battery swap or disconnect. In turn, just lower each window, raise it and continue to hold the UP position of the switch until the window seats itself fully and possibly clicks a couple of times. Do this on each window and you're back to all that one-touch goodness.

    We have a 2014 LR4, that had a whirring sound coming from the front, matching engine revs. Started in November and got steadily louder into Dec and early Jan. Turns out it was the power steering pump. We had to replace ours. Perhaps it you catch it early enough, it'd be a fix or maintenance rather than a replace.

    Whirring noise could also be alternator (might make sense since battery was bad) or ac compressor (easy to rule this out - just turn ac button on/off to see if it changes the noise).

    Another possibility for the whirring noise is one of the idler pulleys - known issue with these going bad, easy to fix.

    I've been thinking it's the power steering pump, too. I guess I'll add that to the list of stuff! :dong:
