Question about 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II

Land Rover Disco II Steering

About two weeks ago I got an oil change for my truck (Wed, Oct 24) and that Friday I was driving home from work and all of a sudden my battery light came on, the steering wheel locked up, and the temp light came on (but the car wasn't running hot). Fortunately I was close to home, but when i popped the hood, and checked the fluid in the power steering I had fluid in there, but the wheel is tough to turn as if it lacks the fluid. I'm able to crank the car, lights come on, even drive it (I haven't been because its dangerous) but the Battery light is on, and the steering wheel seems locked up, I'm not quite sure on what is going on.

Sounds like a belt--
Belt provides rotation for the power steering pump, alternator, and water pump.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: power steering pump on 2001 land rover disco ii

The noise is because the oil level is low and the pump is reverburating. Look at the bottom of the steering box, its usually the lower oil seal that leaks. If it is the steering box , then i suggest you take it to a mechanic to replace the seal, because to remove the drag link arm is very difficult without proper pullers.

Check the door switches for the interior lights and tighten the screws holding these on to make a good earth contact.Knock the door locks lightly with a hammer to get the insides loosened up and lube these with a penetrating spray.

Sounds like a belt let go, but other items could come in to play here, such as. : Seized idler pulley, seized alternator, etc. Obviously you need to have it checked out. Did you notice if engine overheated, that would be the one that would worry me.

SOURCE: power steering went out while driving and battery

If the water got high enough to cover the front of the engine or was shot up high enough by hitting the puddle it will cause the belt or belts to slip on the pulleys so you can loose power steering or the alt will show low amperage output and will turn on the battery light.

The Solenoid fitted on the Steering Rack is not getting the command from The Body Control Unit. Kindly Replace your BCM and then your problem is solved. You can try to make sure by giving direct current of 12v to the solenoid and check the Steering. if it works then simply change the BCM as it's not giving d command to the Solenoid. Salman EiD

either your pressure is low causing the light to come on , and dangerous to your engine , or the oil pressure sending unit is dead. It is just a small pressure switch that screws into the side of the engine block and reads the oil pressure. If the pressure is low , or the sensor is dead , the light comes on. Oil pressure sending units die a lot more often then oil pumps , and they are not expensive to buy , or hard to install. The hardest part of the job is actually locating on your engine. Its location should be easy to find out online.

Any oil leak should be attended to ASAP for obvious reasons... could be a split hose or excessive crank case pressure. If the oil loss is minimal then no need to panic but I would get it looked at by a Land Rover speciallist.

If this Land Rover has an Automatic transmission or if you are using full time four wheel drive the problem is in the chain driven transfer case. You need a transmission rebuild.
