hi im Kevin if restricted power message has shown there will be fault codes stored in vehicle memory . I would recommend having car scanned elsewhere as I've never scanned a land rover with no faults present they always have codes in them

Hi Kevin, I'm not sure what sort of scan you mean. We took the car to the official garage and they ran the computer diagnosis which found nothing.
Auto Mechanic: Kevin, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

I don't disagree with what your saying but I can only go on my experience and I have never plugged a late Landrover in with my dealer level diagnostics and not found a fault present they always have faults in . Sometimes the fault codes are obscure and a garage will reset vehicle and tell you there are no codes because the codes give little explanation as to the reason for problem . I would recommend going to another garage straight after the warning has appeared and having diagnostic check on machine carried out
