Gearbox over heating light comming on

I have a landrover TD5 year 2002 automatic. The problem is that the automatic transmission over heating light comes on after i drive a few miles aspecially if I am on country roads using low gears. I have had the gearbox oil and filter changed but the problem is getting worse in that it is comming on now after only a few miles. The gear changes are smooth and there seems to be nothing wrong with the gear box itself. What could the problem be.

The tranny may have an intercooler and the fluid levels could be low. Check your tranny fluid levels and inspect for leaks. This tranny cooler will be upfront and look like a small radiator.

Audible warning when outside lights left on not working on TD5


Not sure what year this is but it may be the audio box that make the noise or the switch in the cylinder lock itself,
When the key is removed it release a lever that makes a connection and if lights are on it sounds the box but if this lever is worn then no noise, try to wiggle key and see is it works,

Discovery td5 auto. M & S warning lights come on and flash on dash. Loss of power therafter.


hi this problem is caused by a geatbox fault , something is causing the fault code to bring on your warning lights , in this mode the gearbox locks up and the tourqe converter takes up the drive , when you drive of it feels like you only have 3 gear , change the oil and filter in the box and make sure you have the correct level of oil in the box , very important , td5 auto 192k

I have been told I need a gearbox rebuild. Car Audi A4 2002


Hi there. Your vehicle is fitted with an electronic automatic transmission and I suggest that before any expensive rebuild work is undertaken on the transmission, especially when you say it drives fine, it that the intermittent electrical problem is resolved. You should firstly have an authorised Dealer check out the fault codes on the transmission ECU – this might identify where the problem is. They will also be able to perform a ‘Stall Test’ and again this will determine the effective operation of the gearbox. Hope this helps, Scottech.
