cables

  1. Unprotected cables under the car.

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Hi. Just noticed today when I changed to winter wheels that there is unprotected cables and connections just behind the towbar box. Is this how it shall look like? Or is something missing. My car is an RR MY18 I can’t remember that my MY17 looked like this.
  2. Extending ABS cables

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've tried the search function on this one but come up empty. Anyone have experience of extending the ABS cables on a P38? Mine are starting to get tight (especially the back axle) due to body and suspension lift - I've had a look at re-routing, but ideally I'd like to keep the original route...
  3. 2004 L322...acccidently crossed battery cables trying to jum

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So, I went to see Rouge One tonight and I guess I was so excited upon coming out of the theater, I saw I had left my lights on...I had some jumper cables and hooked up to my friends car and when hooking to mine, it immediately sparked and I backed off. Apparently the "black cover" on my friends...
  4. iPad Mini windshield or dash mount and cables?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My other main vehicle is a 2012 Sprinter RV, which also has a fairly poor nav system, so I set that up with a ProClip dash mount for my iPad Mini 3. I use Google Maps or Waze almost all the time when driving, along with several apps for finding RV parks, restaurants, etc. The Sprinter head unit...
  5. Rear Tailgate Retention Cables

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Last week, I was able to get the RR really dirty in the National Parks of Utah. While lunching, I was sitting on the tailgate, along with a fairly heavy cooler. My wife sat down on the tailgate, and the right retention cable snapped. Not a good marriage moment! ;-) I checked where it snapped...
  6. Mystery cables near left blower

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Just got my p38a, wonderful car if you have a lot of spare time. When opening front left blower enclosure noticed that there are couple of loose cables (as in not connected to anywhere) Are these for diagnostics or am I missing something there. Picture included below: Two connector, one two pin...
  7. SDD software and cables

    Diagnostic Equipment
    My 2013 S/C RR Sport goes out of warrantee in the next 6 months, so I am starting to look for a SDD system that will work with my truck and my wife's 2012 Jag XK. I found a couple of options and was curious if anyone here had experience with them. See below. I am a little new to the whole...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello All. My name is Oliver Phoenix. I hope everyone is well and it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I purchased a 2006 L322 a few days ago. She's a lovely machine with 30,000 on the clock and a full history. Very lucky to have her. She is almost perfect. There is however one problem...
  9. Replacing battery cables - recommendations?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, I'm going to replace both battery cables. For the negative, is there any reason to have the joint at the suspension tower? Wouldn't a single length be better? For the positive, any improvement to be made here? Cheers.
  10. Anyone fitted bush cables to a '38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After thwacking the expensive heated windscreen last weekend whilst off roading in some forestry (and luckily getting away with it) I have bought a set of bush cables - as they seem to have a million different names, I mean steel cables that run from the corners of the bonnet to the roofline to...
  11. Are my cables crossed? Windshield wiper question

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    My user manual ('09RRS) says to press the button on the end of the windshield wiper wand (on the steering column) to activate the from washer....but the rear washer activates instead. It also says to pull the wiper wand to position A for the rear, but the front wiper activates instead. Finally...
  12. Parking Brake Actuator and Cables - 2006 Sport HSE

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Just did a brake and rotor replacement on my 2006 Sport HSE. Specific to the rear wheels, I made sure that the EPB was off and disengaged before I tried to remove the rotors. They came off easily and the new ones went back on just as easily. Put the new pads on etc and tested everything out...
  13. What are these cables ??!

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello All, I'm in the (probably long and drawn out) process of trying to source my L322 battery drain (yes another one) and having done the heater hedgehog & replaced the battery I am now focussing on the boot electronics. I stripped out the gubbins in the left hand side of the spare wheel and...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi There, Very new to this site so please excuse any posting mistakes. I opened my 2006 Supercharged lower tailgate in the week and one of the tailgate stays/cables snapped. Checked the other one and all are completely corroded. I checked this site and saw a number of postings warning about...
  15. Cables Through the Firewall

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, Before anybody says anything, I have indeed already read the information on the rr.net page about this topic. My question, however, involves a LHD vehicle. I was hoping to run some cables through the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. I wanted to know how accessible a point...
  16. What's the difference between Nanocom Evolution cables?

    Diagnostic Equipment
    I've borrowed a friend's Nanocom (he has a D2 TD5), and bought a Motronic activation code for it. But it doesn't work on my P38, I'm getting a "vehicle identification error". I'm getting the error when going to Motronic through the D2 or P38 menus. Does anyone know what the difference is...
  17. EAS Compressor only runs while jumper cables are attached

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    To recap from earlier post, rear bags had been leaking thus compressor was overworked. Left rear bag finally blew during morning pump up and compressor shut off. Relaced bags and compressor would still not engage. Jumped relay 20 and was able to run compressor with engine running yet bags...
