Question about 2005 Land Rover Freelander
My 2005 Freelander periodically fails to shift into the tiptronic drive going up and downhill. The technicians at Landrover weren't able to reproduce the problem. They said they'd never encountered the problem. Any idea what may be wrong?
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.
