Car battery – AGAIN today

Simon was woken by a text message and a follow up phone call from Land Rover this morning. Yes, Reggie (new name) has experienced yet another flat battery.

However, this morning’s was following the use of the automatic speed limiter function yesterday.

The AA guy managed to start it by using both his van AND the portable power supply – neither one of them alone was enough to fire the 6 cylinder diesel….

So, we are now pretty sure that the problem does indeed lie in the speed limiter function since Simon has not used it for the whole week until Saturday – then some 18 hours later, it died again. Coincidence? Thinkest I Not.

Reggie is booked in for the update of the two components that the LR assist guy mentioned last week so hopefully all will be sorted soon. This time, the car was trying to pull 4.5amps as soon as the car was opened – hence the problem was still occurring after the AA guy arrived – sadly an LR guy could not attend so we were not able to fully diagnose (that would have been the icing on the cake)
