I agree with Donna, JLR are replacing the steering rack etc. On a fix on fault basis, assuming that it was the bolts that sheared/failed. Look on this forum for steering rack problems/failure for more info.
What is limp mode?...it is the biggest load of 'horse poo' ever thought up....In the old days cars either worked, sort of worked or just broke down at the side of the road. Now we have this rubbish, where to protect an engine you can hardly get up a hill, putting the foot down does nothing, and is real scary trying to drive in limp mode.
I personally would break the guys leg that thought it up, and let him limp home
I collected mine from dealership yesterday after having some work done. when I got home I restarted & it was in "Restricted Performance" mode & an EML light was on, it would not rev over 2,800 so I shut down & left it. Went out this morning --- No warnings or symbols. This must be the Magic of JLR at work overnight.
Often it's a temporary glitch - a sensor malfunctioning. I had it once on my FL2 SD4 and a couple of days ago on the Evoque. On both occasions restarting the engine cured it. Hasn't come back (yet) on the Evoque.
Modern electronic in cars are hellish, limp mode being a prime example, but my Wifes car, a Smart Fortwo has the weirdest fault, that it is not worth telling the dealer, in case he has to strip the whole dash down, just for a car clock. Fault...The dash display car clock changes to a random different time if the outside temperature is freezing overnight, but from spring to autumn it runs fine ...Crazy, no idea why it is temperature dependant, as its just a stupid car clock LOL (luckily there is another clock in the cars radio, and that remains correct)
Hello, I am a complete newbie on this forum so hello to all, I have a question I am sure you have covered before but because I’m a bit slow could I ask again, i recently purchased a 19 plate pre new model evoque from a main dealer, just before they closed due to this virus, My question is...
I own a 2013 SD4 brought brand new. DAB radio has stopped work (No Reception ) Strangely when the tailgate is opened the radio works fine when closed radio stops working. I assume the aerial is in the rear spoiler ?????. How do you remove the spoiler , I have undone the 5 nuts but can't see how...
As my car is on the drive & not in a garage I’m looking to get a new battery charger as opposed to a trickle charger. Now what would be best, 4, 6, 8 or 12 Amp? My S/S has not worked for over a week so I’m assuming low battery though no warning yet.
All, I have a 2015 HSE Dynamic, this is my third Evoque, the reversing camera quality is pretty poor, very badly pixelated / grainy. I've seen many posts about faulty cameras or water inside but we're here in California and its not wet.
Not sure if the camera is broken or this is just old tech...
