Freelander tiptronic shifting failure

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.

I have a lexus is 250 with a tiptronic auto box when im coming downhill the car is hunting/jerking and never done it before.the gearbox is smooth but when you drive on the highway for a long time and


read the owners manual on the operation of a tiptronic box. It will probably state that the manual selection of the box is for keeping the gear box in set gears to prevent unnecessary gear changing. So when going down hill select a gear manually and that will use the engine braking capability instead of up shifting as the rpms increase
It is fun to use the tiptronic as a manual box but that is not the real purpose of the transmission design.. IT is to lock the transmission into certain gears to prevent unnecessary up and down shifting of the transmission

What operate the 4x4 in the transfer box of the landrover freelander 1.8 Petrol. The switch on the gear lever works but the wires are disconnected and I see no switch or valve on the gearbox or transfer...


Freelander is permanent 4 wheel drive. The switch on the gear lever is for downhill decent control. These are usually diconnected when there is a problem with one of the ABS wheel sensors not working, causing three warning lights on the dash to display. Google Freelander Three Amigos.
