Default Re: Discovery 2 Auto M & S Warning Lights

Hello
I own a 2004 ES Premium and I am getting the M and S fault lights when I select reverse and sometimes when I select drive. If I stop the engine and restart the fault goes, any ideas???

How old is the vehicle Battery ?

Have the battery and charging system checked.

I would agree with Urban Panzer.

mine started doing the same S&M light stuff when the battery was low. it would only happen if I started it and stuck it in gear quick. The system seemed to get confused due to low voltage.
Changed battery and have never seen it again

I've had the same issue if the main battery condition is less than perfect. Two things to do:

1. Give the car battery a good charging up - at least overnight and the longer the better.

2. When starting the car adopt a slightly different routine, ie before driving off, start the car, then put your seatbelt and anything else you need to do BEFORE selecting any gears.

This allows the car electrical systems to recover slightly before the gearbox ECU needs juice to operate the gearbox.

Good luck

Dave

I love landyzone. Bought my Discovery II last week and suffered this problem twenty minutes into owning it! Been trawling forums and will try the suggestions here. Changed the air flow metre sensor and pipe and it hasn't done the 'stop' trick in two days. M and S lights still flash though, and I don't see any dashboard lights from the gearbox, so I suspect there is some communication breakdown there.

Sorry, but I don't understand. Where are the M&S lights flashing, if it's not on the dashboard?

Often the flashing lights is caused by insufficient electrical supply to the transmission ECU on engine start, so the ECU sees aproblemand fires up the warning lights.

As a test you could start the engine,DO NOT TOUCH THE GEAR LEVER, let it tick over whilst you do your seatbelt/check and adjust mirrors etc, before selecting any gears. This slight pause allows the alternator to replace the juice that the starter took from the battery, so feeding more volts to the transmission ECU.

If this works it's a strong indicator that your battery is weak needing an overnight charge or replacement.

Good luck

Dave
