I assume it is an automatic..In a case like that it is TRANS Failure..Did you check the fluid level or is it leaking anywhere. ?..You can try replacing the fluid and filter ...or even a shift solenoid..You didn't state how many miles you have on the truck,If it has been serviced before,and is it a 4-wheel drive.,What year model is it ,.?..Is it flashing any fault codes..? This would help me answer your question..However 9 times out of ten it is Trans Failure...Reverse is at the back of the trans and it is the largest gear...Although sometimes reverse goes out instead of forward gears...
By bouncing, do you mean that system is raising and lowering the vehicle or do you mean you feel like you are driving a clown car through a boulder field? If the first, you have a height position sensor(s) that is failing or failed. If the second symptom, your system has de-pressurized (which can be caused by a number of things) and you are bouncing on the "bump-stops". These are pushing mounted on your axle top that prevent the vehicle from dropping clear to the ground. Happy to provide more suggestions if you would like to post more info. In any event, if the orange row of lights on your dash panel EAS switch begin flashing this is the FAULT mode and you need to stop and park vehicle asap if you do not and you continue to drive the vehicle you will eventually go into HARD FAULT mode. This is indicated by your dash message center reading "SLOW 35MPH MAX" and you do not want this to happen. The hard fault takes you to a BeCM (rover's brain) state that requires special software, electronic tools and know how, and sometimes alot of patience to cure OR usually about and hour of shop time at your "TESTBOOK" equipped LAND ROVER dealership service department to correct. Good luck.
might need to reset sensor, my van does that every three thousand miles, computer controls that tracking of milage to estimate the next change, try this to see if it clears------turn on ignition so dash lights up ,right before you turn ignition for a full start,this is so the computer turns on( dont have car running) then pump gas pedal three full times and hold it down on a fourth for about ten seconds,( pump,pump,pump,hold), hopefullt this should reset the computer sensor. turn off car wait ten to fifteen seconds, and start normally, hopefully it should have the oil light on after that, if it does you might need to check with a mechanic.
These vehicles have a built in antitheft system. When switching the ignition you interrupt this system.
You will need to do a system relearn after the new ignition is installed. It will not start until the new ignition is installed and relearned.
Step one. Put key in ignition, turn forward 2 clicks until right before it should start. Keep like that for ten minutes, NO LESS.
Step two. After the ten minutes, turn key back to off position for 5 seconds.
You need to do steps 1 & 2 a total of three times in a row without trying to start the car in between. The whole process should take roughly 30 minutes. After the last time waiting 5 seconds in off position, turn key forward and attempt to start the vehicle. Remember no less than ten minutes when forward, maybe do ten minutes and 15 seconds to be sure, some people even do 11 minutes.
Hello: TRY THIS Attempt to start the car leave the key on for 10 minutes or until the security light goes out, at this time turn key off for 10 seconds, turn switch on for ten more minutes or when security light goes out, turn key off for 10 seconds. Turn key ON for ten minutes or when security light goes out, turn key off wait 10 seconds, then start car....
Something you can try, I don't know if it works for your type of vehicle, turn the ignition on, but try to start it, let it set for ten minutes, turn the ignition off, then try to restart it. you may have to do this procedure three times. on for ten off, on for ten off, on for ten off, do not take the key out of the ignition during this procedure. your security has to relearn the key
it could be from many reasons...sometimes even the ABS system will cause this fault or even the Steering position Sensor. if it comes and goes then inspect your height sensors as the early version of the height sensors are getting weak and like melting so it gives wrong reading which cause the fault...offer more info. and you'll get your solution
you can try turning the ignition on and off , only to position two ond off with out starting , between 20 - 30 times this sometimes confuses modules and causes them to clear faults , if not i would recomend getting it plugged in , if vehicle is not in warranty go to landrover specialist , much cheaper!!!!!
