Big Ash James Posted January 23, 2008 Share Posted January 23, 2008 Hi all my first post on here seems GREAT. Basically my defender TD5 suffers problems when I go through puddles. The Accelerator used to cut out straight away when I went in water and the engine managment light came on but recently the car stutters ALOT when I accelerate and if I continue to letit do it then the accelerator cuts out. I have changed the throttle potentiometer which is also the throttle position sensor. The car drives fine for about 10-20 miles after driving through the water now and then starts stuttering. I took the car to my local LR specialist where they connected it to the computer stuff this was the list of problems: Driver demand 1 logged low Ambient pressure circuit fault logged low Inlet air temp circuit fault logged high Coolant temp circuit fault logged high Aircon fan drive open load fault logged Tacho drive open load fault logged Aircon clutch drive open load fault logged Aircon fan drive open load fault active Tacho drive open load fault active Aircon clutch drive open load fault active High speed crank sync lost fault logged Driver demand 2 out of range fault logged Faults detected with driver demand logged Engine speed outside bounds for cruise(where fitted) active Vehicle speed outside bounds for cruise(where fitted) active Since this they suggested I change the throttle potentiometer which is also the throttle position sensor which I did but it hasn't made any difference does anyone have any advice also when it does the stuttering it has power and then suddenly cut's and then has power again and help is much appreciated Thanks in advance James Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
