My local LR dealer (independent) cleared the faults twice, charged me
£40 for the privilege, then the lights came on again 10 minutes later.
So, rather than throwing money at them for reading the faults (which
they didnt do, their computer was playing up, and all they could do was
reset it), I went and bought a Bearmach Hawkeye. Lovely little thing.
Reads first time, and clears the fault immediately, until the next time
the lights come on.
Finally got the fault read consistently - 'shuttle valve open circuit'.
Googling shows this is an elctrical fault in a pair of switches which
are embedded in the ABS unit.
Luckily, there is a good site that shows exactly how to do this (albeit
on a Discovery):
Took mine apart this afternoon, tested the switches, both are dead -
open circuit, so I've just ordered a pair of switches, hopefully this
will cure it once and for all.
As for the Hawkeye, £270, well worth it, I do intend keeping the
Freelander for a few more years, so it'll be useful, and, can be
upgraded to other models, so it wont be useless when the Freelander is
