    Hello,

    As this stuff comes up quite often I wrote the Alarm info to avoid repeating the same stuff again and again.
    The buying attachment I wrote for use by someone I know who was searching at the time.

    So anyway rather than keep attaching them to other threads I thought I would add them here and then I could just post the link to this post in other posts.
    Also,

    If you have one here is some info that may be useful.

    Download the RAVE manual, it has the workshop and owners manuals in them.
    http://www.myrangerover.co.uk/rave-workshop-manual/

    Try and see if you can find a friend or make a new one with the nanocom / hawkeye/ lynx that works on the D2 , you may need their help at some point.

    Also worth getting the EKA code, have a read of the attachment named alarms in this link.



    Apart from that, any questions , chuck them in the Discovery section.

    EDIT: Purchase check list update 30/03/2017
    EDIT: Rave download info added

    Cheers

    Hi @Christopher Markham

    It is a pdf, and was written using a windows 10 64 bit computer. Not sure why you are having problems.??

    Cheers

    You might be better off posting this in the Discovery section and asking for help there.

    Good luck.

    Great post, although I wish I had read this prior to purchase, I have a few of these faults. Ah well having money is overrated anyway :)
