Hello all!

After many hours, days, and dollars wasted my father isn't sure what to do or where to go. He has had a few issues for that past 2 years now that the dealer allegedly cannot figure out or is just being lazy!.

1. Power steering - Power steering is non-op on initial start up, he must cycle the engine once more to get it to function. So basically starts it, turns it off, then starts it again.

2. Oil pressure warning- The high oil pressure warning is illuminated on the dash, however it was verified that the oil pressure is O.k. and the sensor was replaced, but the lamp is still on.

3. MIL ON- code not stored but dealer said code reads bad cats, however they said that they do not believe the cats need to be replaced.

ALSO : Oil pressure lamp turns off, MIL lamp always on. Occasionally vehicle will turn on with No dash lamps on but the power steering will be non operational, cycle engine and oil pressure lamp comes back on and power steering is operable. Low voltage noted by dealer.
Alternator and Battery have been replaced, oil pressure sender has been replaced.


HELP

Has had new battery, new alternator etc. NO one can seem to pin point the issue! Open to suggestions for repair shops in the greater San Francisco Bay area!

John, just because you have a new battery and new alternator doe not mean your cables, ground points etc are allowing the battery to charge properly. You can test the electrical start / charge circuit on your own with a basic multi meter. There is an electrical troubleshooting stickie above. Run through it. In addition, you need to actually read the error codes being logged so you know yourself what is going on.

Best bet is to contact you local LR club and find out who they recommend for an independent shop. Indies usually enjoy their work more than dealer mechanics. Are usually more knowledgeable and experienced than the shop folks at the dealer that follow a guide to replace parts
