Weird Electronic parking brake fault

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and I am a happy fresh new owner of a 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8.

Everything is working fine but there is a strange fault that I haven’t seen anywhere when looking to all the posts on the subject…

Let me explain, when I am parked and I try to engage the parking brake a yellow light appears and the red parking break logo flashes with a message saying that the parking brake is not working.

So if I get the shifter in neutral when not on a flat surface the car is moving. But for example when I go for a ride everything disappear and if I push the parking break switch while driving the car brakes until it completely stops just like an emergency brake.. I’m confused as the parking brake works while driving but not when I am parking the car..

If anyone could help me I would be grateful !

wELL YOU NEED TO READ THE FAULT CODES.

I would recommend an Autel AP200 white
code reader which can be used with a smart phone

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your reply, I did the scan with elm327 with « EOBD-FACILE » as I’m French but nothing appears..
Are you sure the software you’re telling me is working well on the Range Rover Sport and where to download it and which OBD tool do I need is the ELM327 Wifi okay ?

I think the ELM only gives engine codes from memory

If you didn’t get anything but engine codes, then I think I’m correct

You can buy the diagnostic tool in France : autel ap200 white
