    TD5 Disco 2 rear air suspension

    Support the body with two jacks at the rear as to have phisycaly even level then go to calibration with hawkeye and consider the jacks as being calibration blocks when it asks about them... then while it's still jacked read the sensor inputs, they should be close to each other... a common problem is bad contact in the sensor's plugs if the sensors are good

    Curious ignition

    The first suspect is the interior fusebox which can develop various issues due to water ingress/internal corrosion.

    Curious ignition

    Diesel can be a Td5 too which doesnt have a ''stop solenoid" and that symptom is caused by something else... so it's hard to say untill we dont know what year and engine is that vehicle

    Off course it's odd but as long as you dont say what kind of Disco you have it'll be hard to make an ideea

    Before I torch the piece of Cr@p......

    For the best price/quality ratio i recommend these https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wheel-Bearing-Kit-BWK1273-Borg-Beck-TAY100060-Genuine-Top-Quality-Replacement-/332676821018?hash=item4d7515701a , i have them myself all around and IMO they are great

    The 3 amigos are related with the red brake(handbrake/low fluid) warning... it shoud be there all the time together with the 3 amigos according to the built in diagnostic protocol but in reality it isnt there only when ''solid'' current faults are logged mainly on sensors, see the attached doc(it's from the D2 workshop manual)

    Discovery ABS issue

    If the ABS came on alone after 3 amigos went out the fault was one sensor related and the vehicle must exceed 10mph for the warning lamp to go out or if the fault is still present the 3 amigos will be back

    Disco 2 Indicator and central locking fault

    BCU = body control unit, a very complex electronic unit behind the glovebox which is responsible for various functions including central locking and indicators ... though the interior fusebox(IDM) is suspect as well cos it's very common to be affected by water or moisture, i doubt it's a relay cos there is one for each side... you should find a known good one on ebay from a non-facelift D2 and rule it out cos it's almost plug and play, all you have to do is to disconnect the battery first then after the swap and battery reconnection turn ignition on II and let it there 5 minutes to syncronise itself with the BCU, if you are unlucky enough to be the BCU the problem becomes more complicated cos it needs complex programming with dedicated tester... here's one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Discovery-2-TD5-V8-Interior-Fusebox-YQE000250/254150541492?fits=Car+Make%3ALand+Rover|Model%3ADiscovery&epid=652655038&hash=item3b2c8d80b4:g:K1EAAOSwkhxcfXXk

    Disco 2 questions

    Did you rule out 100% the fuse(F3) too?...also you need a tester to see the front fogs setting in the BCU cos there are 3 options: 1. Disabled = The vehicle is not fitted with front fog lamps. 2. Main = The front fog lamps will operate if the headlamps are on main beam. 3. No main = The front fog lamps will not operate if the headlamps are on main beam.

    Discovery 2 headlamp conversion

    My friend's car is also a 2000 one with plenty of miles but the police considered him to be the cause and unfortunately he hit a newish Audi A8 and paid for it's repairs(fortunately no one was injured)... so those retrofitted headlights costed him about twice the value of his old D2 😞

    Discovery 2 headlamp conversion

    An example which i've seen here myself was that the insurance company refused to pay to a friend of mine when he had an accident one night and he had retrofitted HIDs(not LEDs) so the company said that it could have been a factor due to the altered light beams... i'm sure that when it comes to payment they would invoke anything

    Discovery 2 headlamp conversion

    No, i have nothing against your plan i just dont see the benefit of having both dip and main beams on together . If that's what you want go for it just make sure you'll not annoy others in traffic when it's dark cos AFAIK LEDs have different beam than classic bulbs and an original LED headlamp reflector is different.... btw, are retrofitted LED headlights legal in Scotland? cos in most European countries if the vehicle was not factory fitted with them then it's a problem
