Got a disco 2 had it 4 years been really reliable up till the Xmas break

Abs light came on I stopped turned off started again light went out and stayed out so I thought great stuff

Driving today all lights came on abs tc hill decent

If I jump on the brakes I feel the abs working and no wheels lock up but I still have the lights on

If I set off like a loon and spin the wheels tc works

Now to me if everythings working as it should why are the lights on

Thanks Danny

This is most likly to be an abs fault, when just 2 lights come on you can turn the ignition of and back on and it will clear the lights until it faults again, then eventualy it will fault bringing 3 lights on (the lights you have mensioned) and then it becomes a hard fault and the lights will stay on until you have the code read to tell you which abs sensor/hub is faulting, and then cleared, it will still fault until getting the faulty part replaced. Hope this helps...

Mine has had the "3 Amigos" since December. Switching the ignition off and back on usually clears it, but on a couple of occasions they stayed on.

A friend plugged it into the diagnostic machine where he works expecting it to show a fault with one wheel sensor, but it was showing so many fault codes on the ABS system that he said all he could do was clear them all and try again when the lights come back on.

I know the previous owner had a rear suspension height sensor fitted last year and that was on of the codes showing, so it's probably never had any faults cleared ever.

The lights haven't come back on. Yet......

Have you checked your wheel bearings? Have had to replace both hubs on a mates TD5 recently for the same faults, slight play in the bearing throws out the Abs signal which is part of the Hub. And if you get Hubs from Paddocks they come with sensors.

Glad I still have a 200tdi as an offroader much cheaper to replace bearings.

Yea cheaked wheel barings no play in any of them

tried the idea remove the sensor clean up were it fits then refit seamed to sort it for a few weeks then the lights back on. I'm half in the middle of thinking of getting a new hub and sensor or weather to just get the sensor

The bank account is saying get sensor but the guy doin the job ( me ) is saying don't mess about n do the same job twice n get a hub and sensor lol

Adios amigos!!

After getting the faults on the ECU cleared the lights came back on a few days later. Plugged into the diagnostic again and it showed a shuttle valve solenoid electrical fault.

My local LR specialist fitted a new SVS assembly (20 minute job) and the lights have not come back since :o)

Mines deffo the right front wheel everytime I plug it in it says right front it's strange because I can turn it off drive for miles it does not come on or I can go 100 yds and they are on. Which is making me thing wheel baring even though there's no play in it I've spun it no ropey feeling to it no noise I'm still thinking get the hub assembly on pay day and hopefully problem solved
