Hill descent control (HDC) ‘failure’ - AMBER
Illuminates briefly as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’.
Self-levelling suspension - AMBER* Illuminates briefly as a bulb and system check when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ and then extinguishes.
If the light illuminates at any other time, either a fault has occurred which affects the functionality of the system, or over-use of the system has been detected, in which case HDC may ‘fade out’ (see ‘HILL DESCENT CONTROL’, page 138).
NOTE: Faults which cause the HDC ‘failure’ light to illuminate after the initial system checks, or whilst driving, will be accompanied by a warning chime sounding 3 times.
Traction Control - AMBER
Illuminates as a bulb check when the starter switch is turned to position ‘II’ and extinguishes after approximately 3 seconds. The light illuminates for a minimum of 2 seconds, whenever traction control is operating.
If the light illuminates continuously, and remains illuminated when the vehicle is stationary, a fault with the system is indicated; seek qualified assistance.
If the remote handset is operated: The light flashes continually while the rear of the vehicle is being lowered, or raised.
If the light illuminates constantly: A fault with the suspension is indicated. Seek qualified assistance as soon as possible.
While it is possible to continue driving the vehicle in this condition, this is not recommended as there is a considerable risk of causing further damage to the suspension. Preferably, the vehicle should be brought to a halt as soon as conditions allow. Further travel should be limited to reaching the nearest Land Rover retailer, or driving to a place of safety while awaiting recovery. In any event, speed must be restricted to a rate that will guarantee a smooth, and totally bump-free, ride at all times, ideally traversing only smooth roads.
NOTE: Faults which cause the light to illuminate after the initial system checks, or whilst driving, will be accompanied by a warning chime sounding 3 times.
