Angry freelander warning lights

hi, i wonder if anyone can help me. I have recently developed a problem with my freelander, it is a TD4 GS model 2002 hardback. When i come to start it in the morning i get three warning lights come on, they are ABS/TC and hill descent, I also lose my speedo. Once i have got going the fault some times corrects itself and some times not at all, untill i have stopped the motor. It has been in the garage many times under warrenty and they keep saying that they can find no fault at all. please can anyone help, its driving me mad.

This could be wrong but apparently the wiring from the gear knob sometimes has problems (corrosion, chaffing etc) causing similar faults so i have heard
let me know, Graham

I have taken a good look at the wiring at the gear knob and it is all in perfect condition. since you replied it has been back to the garage again and they still say that they can not find anything wrong. its driving me mad.

I've got a 'clicking' type sound to the drivers side of the engine close to the wipers, any ideas ?

Hi Guys,

I had the same fault many months ago, a full service that included a complete flush of the breaking system solved the prob. Apparently the brake fluid was boiling too quickly as it was old and this meant the system wasn't working, now it's perfect.

Worth a try.

Regards
Slippy

This clicking sound, could it be a relay? maybe for the abs, do you know if ya abs is working? try driving and stopping hard on a wet day preferably, obviously in a safe area! if you get the obligatory wheel vibration and brake pedal judder you know the abs is actually workin if it aint it could be an abs faulty relay?

good luck

Thanks for the advice everyone, but as to date nothing has worked yet. The abs works fine and all the wires seem to be connected. I have noticed that when this fault accures, a relay in the glove box dose not seem to click and i have no green hill decent light allumination. when it dose work the light stays on the length of the relay click. can anyone shed some light as to what this possible relay may be.

Probably not a huge help, but as per my post... Freelander HDC - Is this noise normal?
This click is audiable from the same place you describe when the HDC clicks in and out whilst descending. Is the HDC circuit kicking in when it shouldn't?
