SOURCE: connect four wheel drive for a freelander land rover 2005

The Freelander, along with all Land Rovers are permanently in 4 wheel drive: You need to take the car to a workshop to see what is happening. Freelanders have big problems with the transfer box, this maybe the problem. When you reverse the car and put the car steering to full lock whilst reversing, do you feel that the car is blocking or binding, as though you have the brakes on. If so this is an indication that the transfer box is faulty. These boxes cannot be repaired, replacement only and are quite expensive.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Freelander tiptronic shifting failure

You say up and down hill. Does it work OK on the flat? If so, there is a sensor for detecting the fact that you are going downhill and this holds the gear you are in when in auto mode to achieve engine braking. I believe failure of this should throw a fault code in the gearbox control unit if this is the case. It could be that the failure of this sensor is inhibiting tiptronic mode, but I can't be sure. Either way, get the dealer to read the codes from the gearbox, not just take it up the road and say they can't replicate the fault.

You most likely have a failed transmission and it will need to be removed and rebuilt or replaced with a remanufactured unit.

2011 Hyundai Elantra Sport Mode won't engage


I will be straight with you, this shifttronics transmissions are nothing but problems, no one seems to have perfected them yet, not even Acura, this system is all electric solenoids,sensors and valves, i know it is time consuming at the dealer but i would go straight to them and if you have a warranty make sure you get something in writing for the future as this will be an ongoing problem with this type of transmission. soory for the bad news but hope you have a warranty on the car. good day

What does the plus/minus button on the chevy malibu shifter do?


Hi there,
I suppose its a sports mode function where the + enables you to upshift and the - to downshift.
Try using this mode when you are driving as you might like it if you used to drive manual cars before...
Cheers
