Hello and welcome to JA!!!
I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.
The codes indicate problems with the VIS (variable induction system), the motor is mostly faulty, or the wiring is.
First you need to check for any blown fuses, and check if VIS motor connector is not loose.....
And then, if you decide to remove to inspect or replace, i will post the detailed instructions so you be able to tackle this:

Yes Billy. Charles here. Am trying to smog an 03' Land Rover Freelander SE and the technicians keep getting the same codes P1470 and P1472 so far we've replaced plugs, water pump, injectors, various gaskets and the timing belt
I have already posted what the codes (p1470, p1472) mean, and what to do in order to check these.
I have posted the detailed instructions on how to remove (for inspection or replacement), the VIS (variable induction system) motor, which is the faulty component in your case.
All the post is written just above.
Check these, and you are most likely going to solve the problem.....
