Land Rover Defender Dashboard Warning Lights

Dashboard warnings on your Land Rover Defender depend on the Land Rover Problem. It could be an indicator light for ABS, airbag, engine light or something else. There are many reasons why the dashboard shows warning lights and below is a list of the lights on the dashboard. You might need to buy a scanner online which will show Landrover trouble codes & reset the warning light for good!
If you need to reset a dashboard light or diagnose a fault on your Land Rover Defender we would advise you to go for the Land Rover iCarsoft i930. Its an extremely popular choice amongst Range Rover Sport owners worldwide because it covers such a wide range of modules within the vehicle such as ABS, SRS airbags, transmission and has received excellent feedback from buyers.

If you need a new sensors to fix your Land Rover Defender such as ABS sensor, MAF, camshaft & crankshaft, visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk.

Land Rover Defender engine warning light - the engine symbol lamp on the dashboard of your Defender if the ECU detects a fault within this system. Your engine may well be limited to a lower speed while the symbol is illuminated and the fault should be diagnosed as soon as possible. If your Defender is OBD2 compliant (petrol from 2001 & diesel from 2004 in UK) you can use the Land Rover iCarsoft i930 to diagnose the fault. The code scanner will produce a fault code and a short description of the fault, allowing you to replace the faulty part, clear the fault code and clear the engine warning light from the dashboard. If you have a diesel model before 2004 you can also use the Land Rover iCarsoft i930.

Land Rover Defender ABS warning light - the ABS symbol lamp for a Land Rover Defender means there is a fault within the ABS system and should be checked out as soon as possible.

You can diagnose the ABS fault location with the Land Rover iCarsoft i930 which will give you fault codes, allow you to erase the faults and dash lights.

Land Rover Defender airbag warning light - the airbag symbol lamp will illuminate on the dashboard if a fault has been detected within this system. A loose connection or an unplugged airbag can cause the light to show up, and the exact fault location can only be diagnosed with a suitable diagnostic tool that has SRS capability.
