I assume the remap is not detected or wiped by LR main dealer during services?
Also I assume Alive will put it back on if it got wiped somehow?
I'm looking to have mine done in early 2018 and a gearbox flush..... SDV6 HSE MY2012 in Orkney Grey. Black leather. 34mpg personal best. No bling fitted!!

Alive have said if it was wiped they would sort a reinstal for a small admin fee. That said, normal servicing seems not to affect it. I can't speak for what happens at a main dealer because I refuse to get mugged by their rip off prices and crap customer service. A good specialist indy, recommended through here, is better, cheaper, less likely to lie or rip you off, and probably knows as much if not more. Since I got my my2012 mid 2015 it has never been back to a dealer, only a trusted indy, serviced on time every time, and it runs as sweet as a nut.

I would love to have mine remapped as the hesitancy when trying to pull out of junctions for gaps that aren't really there drives me crazy but I have 16 months left on my LR Used approved warranty and despite having not missed a beat I wouldn't want to risk it and get told pay up as your warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on due to having it mapped. 2012 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography santorini black with ebony/cirrus interior.

I sympathise with your position. Well, you could wait the 16 months and do it then I suppose. I have not had a warranty on mine for two and a half years and so have saved more than I have paid out (alternator and inlet manifold). Does depend on where you sit on the risk spectrum I suppose and we are all different. Do it next year and you won't regret it, but though we are clearly different in attitude to risk I can understand your reasoning and would never criticise anyone sharing it.

The PCM and TCM both talk to each other. The gearbox determines how much torque is being produced, and can alter the engine output if it deems necessary

No physical programming of the gearbox ECU takes place, but it is affected due to the Engine ECU being tuned Thumbs Up


I couldn't remember properly, but that sounds very much like what Alive were explaining to me why the could not get a exact bhp reading for my car on the Dyno, definitely mentioned transmission not allowing allowing something or the other.

Cheers

Would a main dealer be able to detect it’s been remapped when it has a service there? SDV6 HSE MY2012 in Orkney Grey. Black leather. 34mpg personal best. No bling fitted!!

Yes they would, just ensure you tell them not to re flash it back to normal. Whistle John
