England 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Buckingham Blue

Had the dreaded amber suspension warning light come on the other day. Decided I'd have a go at changing the piston seal and air dryer on the compressor which went fairly smoothly but still no good. Took the car to an excellent local 4x4 specialist, Venture 4x4 in Shipston on Stour, and they gave me the not unexpected news that I needed a new compressor. Censored !

Anyway, they fitted one of the uprated AMK compressors for me and all fixed now. 660 poorer though.........

Only had the RRS 2 weeks but compressor should last for many years now. Other than that, what a machine, very pleased.

Cheers.

Dreaded Suspension light again

Mrs. had a small crash as she drove the RRS into the side of a car.....don't ask!

Anyhoo, it went in to the body shop for a bumper change. When I went to collect the car there were multiple warnings not the dash with terrain functions off and HDC fault. I refused to collect it citing it a damage on their part as the warnings weren't there when I dropped the car off to them. They sent it to RR dealership for a diagnostic and it has come back now with a red suspension light and a fault report stating: found internal fault present with suspension ECU, unable to retain calibration settings. Not accident related.

Any tips on how I should proceed? They are quoting 500 for a new suspension control unit. Never argue with an idiot as he will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.

The printout would show the mileage when the fault occurred.
Say you drove in with the clock on 50,000 and the print out logs the fault at 50,020 then you know they caused it.

Regardless, believe the onus is on them to prove this was an inherent fault 07 TDV8 + BAS map

Thanks, I don't have the printout but will chase it up.

They told me over the phone that this fault had been registering as transient in the past but only ended up latching this time. It was just a coincidence. Their word against mine. Never argue with an idiot as he will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.
