SOURCE: i have 3 orange lights on dash tc abs and a hill

HI,

I have a X Reg 2.5KV6 Freelander also, same problem.
The solution for me and many other was to replace one of the speed sensors. They reside in the hub of each wheel and monitor each wheels speed, if one is rotating faster it applies the brake to that wheel (Traction control) Also controls ABS and HDC.

If one sensor fails the vehicle turns off the TC, HDS & ABS.

unfortunately to find out which sensor has failed the vehicle needs to be plugged into a diagnostic PC at a garage. I paid £40 in Stoke-on-Trent to have this done, I then knew which was the faulty sensor and replaced it.

I have a friend who also took out his faulty sensor and cleaned it (WD40 & a wire brush) and put it back in, never had the problem again, although you need to be carful doing this as they are held in place by a copper bush and need to be intact to allow re-fitment.

As a comferting note for you, I drove my V6 for 7 months with the very same fault, just remember you have no ABS or traction control though.

Another trick BUT I DO NOT ADVISE THIS ON PUBLIC ROADS is as follows. get up to 15mph in D on auto box, turn off engine turn back on again whilst still moving, it should cut engine off and kick back in again (just like bump starting a manual car) for me this reset the fault and was good for three months before it went again. But be aware, this is only somthing i tried and it worked for me. it is dangerous to do this on a public road.

What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed


That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

My truck so weak when going up the hill...Nissan 4x4 4 cylinder


start with the basics does it need a new fuel or air filtre you do not mention what type of hill you are trying to climb is it off road on road are you keeping the turbo working ie the turbo will not be effective below a certine rev so if you change gear and the revs fall below the piont were the turbo should kick in then the turbo will not work if all is right with previous could be a poor turbo or a leak in turbo system

The 4x4 Hi and Lo will not engage. The winter driving conditions now are ice, snow and a hill to climb. Rear wheels just spin. Help!


I have heard that the electric 4x4 push buttons in some Envoys get sticky and don't function right. Maybe disassemble and clean these after checking fuses? I have tons of ideas, but they're not always good. Good luck.

Loss of torque


your timing belts are probably loose or worn and the timing is slightly off which results in diminished power. check out www.rockboundrovers.com for freelander needs.
