Question about 1997 Land Rover Range Rover
Hi, my 2002 rangerover td6 does not like to be jacked off the ground. Every time the wheels are lifted of the ground it will return to the bump stops and I have to take it to the dealer to have it reset, once the fault/error has been cleared it will return to normal position.One dealer says it needs a compressor, the other said i was just unlucky and that the key should be removed whenever jacking the vehicle. I have tried this but to no avail, a trip to get it reset again.The compressor will work on all modes and is quiet when operating. I think it might be the hieght sensors, what do you think?
You could be right or the ride height valves not resetting when back on the ground
if resetting brings it back to ride height , it will not be a compressor problem but a control problem

You don't say where you are but there are various LR owners forum and enthusiasts sites where you can get this info. Certainly UK based.

I feel your pain as I am a loyal Land Rover customer and have had a bad one in the past. Your car has many demons. Air suspension compressors do fail but there are many other parts in the system. The tire sensors are not essential.

Your compressor is not working.Its placed under the step,you can drop it quite easy.check the power going to the compressor.Check the fuses and relays.but its quite common for the copressors to fail.Good luck

Possibly the height sensors or valve block at fault. Or a compressor failure. May need to be put on the diagnostics machine to check.

Hill Descent Control Information
The lamp illuminates when the driver selects Hill Descent Control (HDC), to inform the driver that the system is enabled. If the lamp flashes, the system cannot enable HDC due to excessive speed or incorrect gear selection.
HDC Activity Status: The signal informs the instrument pack if the HDC function is enabled or disabled. If the HDC function is disabled, the HDC lamp will flash to indicate that the incorrect gear is selected or the vehicle is travelling at excessive speed for HDC operation. The signal is originated from the ABS ECU.
Hill Descent Control Fault The lamp illuminates if a fault is detected within the HDC system, providing the driver with a visible warning.
HDC Fault Status: The signal is a combination of the HDC activity and fault messages and is only illuminated when the ABS system detects a HDC function fault. The signal is originated from the ABS ECU.
Check your brake fluid and brake pads. This will also trigger the HDC light. If Brakes and fluid are OK, have the PCM codes scanned, this way you'll know exactly where the problem is. You can have the codes scanned for FREE at AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts, they will give you a print out with the fault codes numbers and their description.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
