Default Warning Lights – ABS, Traction Control and Hill Decent

Hi,

Discovery 2, year 2000, V8 Petrol.

The Warning Lights (ABS, Traction Control and Hill Decent) on my Discovery suddenly came on this morning while waiting at the traffic light. The Discovery has used on normal roads under normal driving conditions (No off-roading).

Please advise what could have caused these 3 lights to come on together.

Thank you.

Had the very same problem on my 2004 TD5 took it back to landrover under warranty and they changed the ABS sensor which controls all three systems.


Landroverhell - we all know how good, bad and ugly Landrovers are but we still love them if you don't like your's and it's put you off go and buy some Jap crap because I can assure you they are no better. I drive a 56 L200 for work and it's the biggest lump of s!!t going and the Hilux is just as bad and you need a fuel tanker to follow you round the country. We don't need to be told what we already know.

Sounds like the ABS sensor, had one go on my 1999 TD5 about 18 months ago, had it replaced and no problems occurred till last week when all 3 lights appeared again.
Took it to my friendly garage who used the code reader and it showed as an intermitent ABS Sensor Fault, so he just cleared the fault and it has not come back so far.
Might be worth getting your local Landrover specialist to put the code reader on it first for a few quid and clear the fault, if it then comes back you will have to get him to replace the sensor which might cost between £100 - £200 depending on who does it.
Good Luck

Hi,

Had the Discovery checked at the garage and they concluded after clearing the codes that there is a slight play in the ‘exciter ring’ due to corrosion which throws the senor.

Just for some technical info:
1) Is the ‘exciter ring’ made of aluminium?
2) Is it ‘compression fitted’ to a steel component in the hub?
3) If the exciter ring is compression fitted, can corrosion cause play to the exciter ring?
4) Can there be a possibility that there is a chemical reaction between the materials from the excited ring and the mating component – caused due to environment (atmosphere)?
5) My warranty does not cover corrosion, therefore, could corrosion be the cause of this component failure?

Thanks.

Another question - where can I purchase a Wheel Hub online in the UK and are there any recommended pattern brands?
