Just as it says, I have had my RR for 41000miles and today it had its first ever EAS fault message. Hoorah!!!
I am mechanically confident and have RAVE and Microcat. I have no issues replacing o-rings and springs etc but need to know what to check first. I have searched and read the EAS troubleshooting tips sticky thread without finding an exact match for my problem.
It actually now lives with my ex-wife and I was phoned early this morning to be told that "the Range Rover is broken". I went out to the roadside with my laptop and RSW reset software (which I have never used before). She took my 110 to work and I reset the EAS fault and bought it back to my drive. I was so impressed that I also donated to Storey Wilson via his Paypal link
The symptoms are :
1) Was found leaning to the LHS on both wheels after being left overnight
2) Drives along with the High Mode LED flashing and the UP symbol on the dash (but does not appear to raise)
I have driven it around today and have not had any 35MPH messages but the top LED has been flashing quite a bit. I lightly sprayed some mild soap solution around the valve block, drier and as much of the springs as I could get to. No leaks seen.
The tailgate has been left ajar and we will see how it sits tomorrow morning. Am I right in thinking that it SHOULD stay level with the tailgate open OR the relay removed?
Yes, with no leaks and the tailgate open or relay removed, it should stay level because the EAS computer will never activate the valve block. If any corner sinks, you should look to those spring seals, air line connections, and valve block connections for leaks. If you cannot find the leak, it may mean the valves are leaking inside the valve block instead of at the airline connections. If nothing happens with the EAS deactivated, it may be bad sensors on the effected side.
