    Diagnostic Tool of Choice?

    Morning,

    499.2 miles into my 500 mile warranty the check engine light came on, now i do own an OBDII reader and works a treat on my other cars, but i get "Link Error" when trying to read the RR.

    I took it to Auto Zone and its a faulty thermostat, $39 fix, waiting to see if the independence dealer who sold me the RR will fix.

    Issue I have going forward is how do I read my own faults and reset the CEL in the future?

    my Gizmo Autel MaxiScan was $13 and like i said, met all my needs previously... Suggestions greatly appreciated.

    There is a never used unit in the classifieds section... you need to do your home work and confirm that GAP has coverage for 2019

    there is no such thing as an archived post. It is sticking out there clear as day when you scroll down to classifieds.

    The GAP is for 2010 onwards so won't work with a 2007. Same as the BBS Nanocom jumps from 2002 P38 to 2010 L322, the RSW Solutions AllComms only covers up to 2005 (BMW engined versions), the only one I know of that covers a 2007 is the iCarSoft LR V2.0.

    98 4.0 Police spec
    and a number of others I maintain for the owners.

    Gap covers all Range Rovers from 2003 onwards, From L322 to the latest.
    Yes, I used it only yesterday in a 2005 NAS spec.
    There is one caveat.
    Non Can bus functions like the EWS and settings on the Diese engine are Only available with Black Box stuff.
    The EWS and diesel diagnstic is allso at 95% accesible with the Hawkeye Pro.
    Since I sold my L322 pack from blackbox I have regretted it many times but the with the two others I have it 98% covered.

    Icarsoft from Allmakes is something I tested and was apalled.

    Hello rover4.0,
    Did you end up with one of these iLand tools? Is it working out for you? Would you recommend it?
