  1. Pure Bad luck, look again, same or V8?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    After looking for two weeks I agreed to purchase a 18 HSE v6 fully loaded CPO with low miles. On delivery to me the delivery truck caught fire and the vehicle was burnt out. i found out this morning and have a pending refund from the dealer. i am now looking at a 2019 V6 HSE CPO and a new V8...
  2. Safe to drive with one bad height sensor?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi, My 2006 RRS has a yellow suspension fault. The code reads a fault with the back driver side height sensor. On the 4x4 info screen I can see that tire is all the way down. However, physically all the tires are at the correct ride height. I plan to get the height sensor replaced but it will...
  3. Bad connection to power cable post in fuse box

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My 1998 P38 totally died last night when I switched the headlights to main beams - the engine died as did all electrics. After research on here, I 'jiggled' (technical term) the main power connection post on the fuse box behind the battery (shown in the photo) and heard a relay click. Sure...
  4. Bad Trailer Module ?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I installed the LR trailer kit on my 2009 last summer, and the green trailer light is on all the time. I was told that the trailer icon should only light/flash when the directionals are on (like my p38 and Classic). It does shut off the parking sensors as advertised, and all the trailer lights...
  5. Any value in a 2000 4.6 with bad motor?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My 2000 4.6 has overheated awhile back. I replaced the top end gaskets and that didn’t fix the issue. It gets hot after a few miles and blows the water/coolant out of the overflow tank. we sold the 96 and trying to do something with the 2000.. sell for cheap or off to the yard. not sure if it...
  6. tale about P38, 18" wheels, bad mechanics & Death Wobble

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    tale about P38, 18" wheels, bad mechanics & Death Wobble Many years ago, in 2006, we decided to purchase a P38 V8, this was not our first RR as we had in past the family a couple of Classics, but this one was going to be our first P38 auto. We found our car a 1996 V8 4.0SE auto in very nice...
  7. 2004 Range Rover xyz switch bad? or?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    This happened once a couple months ago and once today so it is very intermittent. The key turns normally, dash lights come on, but it doesn't engage the starter. I swapped out the starter relay (by the battery) and that didn't help. The gearshift indicator lights up on the dash and by the...
  8. Keys Bad news, really sorry

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    For 16 years i have ordered keys successfully. Today at 3 am They rang me to inform me that no more keys can be sent outside the UK. These knobs at LR are trying everything to put us off their cars. Yes, in theory Motores Satanicos in San José sells them, but they give you a really hard...
  9. Consequences of bad vanos seals?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I sent in my 2003 4.4 for a vanos gear swap after running on bad seals for about a year. Now the mechanic says I need to replace my driver side head. Hes basically saying the bad vanos affected the cams and wore them down. He says its better to go ahead and swap out the entire head instead of...
  10. Bad Oil Filter, Some Other Problem, or Bad Mechanic (Me)?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Greetings -- I've had my P38 roughly five (5) weeks and performed my first oil change on it over the weekend. I used a Mann filter (W 930/20, fitment verified on the Mann website), as I have used them for all of my cars and trucks for a decade-ish and have had great success. After taking the...
  11. 2012 RRS Screen doesn't start up sometimes. Bad firmware?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I bought a 60k 2012 RRS SC maybe 6 months ago. It has an occasional problem where maybe 1 in 10 times, when you turn on the ignition/start the car, either the whole center screen stays black, or some of the functionality is missing, like the some of the cameras in the vision assist are out(blue...
  12. ZF5P24 bad bearing and broken seal issue

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello, looking for some help with my issue. So I picked up a 2004 gasoline powered L322 RR for a great deal. She's a real beauty, however she has slipping transmission when hot and P0732 code. Shifts through the gears just fine when cold but pretty quickly when it gets warm it will slip in...
  13. Any experiences good or bad with certified preowned warranty

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I'm thinking about buying my 2016 TD6 at the end of the lease after the dealer has certified it, which extends the warranty to 6 yrs/100k. It costs about $2900. The best I can tell the certified pre-owned warranty is actually from LR itself and not a 3rd party warranty. I've never had a CPO...

    Range Rover Classic
    I still have a few connections to investigate with my '93 LWB intermittent mis-fire problem, but is there any history of the Lucas kit STC1856 IAM module going bad? I recall buyng the kit from a non-AB source, truck wouldn't run right, finally took it to the shop, and they said the module I had...
  16. Alternator bad?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Firstly, sticky has been (mostly) done and results are below. My questions are twofold: (i) will a brand new battery and a non-functioning alternator be likely to get me home (about an hour’s drive, a bit over that in traffic, lights won’t be in use) or will trying this be likely to drain the...

  19. bad door sensor?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    was getting random "front passenger door open" warnings over the past few months even though we repeatedly opened/closed the door. got the expected behavior as if it really weren't properly closed like doors won't lock as i drove off, short honk when i try to arm the alarm, interior lights stay...
  20. Brake Accumulator was bad

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My Accumulator was bad and I was moving at startup while the pump was running. For a few seconds anyway. I read here that is the sign. I purchased a Ebay(Atlantic Brittish Ebay Store saved 60 from regular site 162.50 shipped to CA) unit and now Pump rarely runs, when it was starting to run...
