Hi. My 2001 Disco has its service engine light on. Worked with a former LR tech in the area. He got a huge fault list and recommended replacing the mass air flow sensor based on his experience.
We did that, but the light came right back on ($200). Next took it to dealer, who noticed a fried fuse and a bent pin on the MAF sensor connector. Repaired both, sent it home. Next day, problem recurred ($200 more).
Currently fuse 2 and fuse 5 in the engine compartment box are out. Fuse 2 (15A) connects to the MAF sensor, air injection valve, purge control valve, camshaft position sensor, and each of those connect to the ECM (explains the long fault list!). Fuse 5 (40A) goes to the motor cooling fan only. (Bought the circuit diagrams. $14. :-)
So this seems like there's got to be an electrical short, right? Advice on how to pinpoint it??
I did notice one of the black plastic "conduit" tubes adjacent to the top of the motor has cracked and come apart, exposing the wiring, but didn't see any fraying there.

The Service engine soon light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
Try spraying into the latch with a lubricant like WD-40. Also spray a little into the key hole itself. Don't be shy when you do the latch and move the nozzle around to reach different areas in the latch. Hope this helps.
sorry but its not that simple my good fellow!!
you need to get aan auto electrician to sort out where the fault is in the wiring loom!
& then can you will needa new ECU swell so expect a hefty $$$$$ cost due to labour [hourly rate]
& ECU,s are expensive
Hi. this alert is to notify you of a fault within the ABS sensor module(sending unit). This will require the attention of a service tech. They will simply replace the bad sensor with a new one and the warning light will go off. Most of the time, a hard brake during travel will trigger the ABS system. If the sensor is malfunctioning during this time, the light will stay on until you get it replaced.
There's a good web site for getting estimates on auto problems. In my area, a head gasket on your car is estimated at around $1500 at a dealer, $200-300 less at an independent garage. The site will also show a list of independent garages in your area.
