HDC = Hill Descent Control

1. Check the fuse as first option for HDC yellow lighting up. If you will found out it was a fuse blown, see if your brake lights are working.

2. If you have the HDC yellow light always on = fault. You might turn out the throttle position sensor, mounted at the end of the accelerator pedal.

This sensor confirms the position of the accelerator pedal when HDC is switched on. If you press the accelerator, this switch tells the system which switches off the HDC, until you release the pedal.

Just look at the switch on the accelerator pedal. Move it around and see if the HDC light will turn off.

If the following is true on your car then you may have the same fault:
Brake lights work - (if not, could be brake switch or ignition switch)
Traction control works. Try wheel spinning it on a loose surface.
ABS works. Brake sharply on a loose surface to test.
No other warning lights.

Cost of throttle position sensor for a 2001 Land Rover Freelander 2001 is around $7, part no.# LXKB100150L.

To replace it pull out the old switch. Remove cable by pushing in the lever in the middle. Slide new switch into plastic housing.

Freelader2002- dashboard showing f4

If your landrover is auto check the ecu connections to the gearbox. Disconnect the battery when doing this. Sometimes connectors get dirty or pins corrode. Spray with a penetrating spray and reconnect. Then reconnect battery. The Flashing F4 should go. Best thing is to have your vehicle checked out with a diagnostic machine.

Trans flashes F4 an will no change gears

The transmission in this truck is computer controlled so what must be done 1st is to have the control module scanned for fault codes so you can make sense of what area needs to be diagnosed and repaired to cure the problem. Right now you are locked in failure mode strategy or limp as some call it.

The hdc light is on on my freelander ?

I helped a friend with this problem. HDC is hill descent control, and a common problem on some Freelanders.
It could be a simple adjustment to your throttle cable, see this link:

No start freelander

F4 is a generic fault with the gearbox. The specific reason would need to be read with a fault code reader. Try turning the ignition on and off 4 or 5 times to see if it will clear. You will need to get it looked at.
