New Owner with car niggles

Post by pemdel » Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:45 am

Hi all, I'm new to forums looking for some info. I've had my Disco 2.0 SD4 HSE Lux since August 2017 absolutely love the car but have had electronic niggles since taking it on.
Started with notifications that "cameras were not available see dealer", then "tow bar not available see dealer" then Sat Nav would freeze on journey and had to be re-set on the move. Dealer had it in for a day but could not find anything untoward although they thought an update might be in pipeline. The problems disappeared after a few months and all plain sailing until the beginning of Feb when a warning light to check spare tyre pressure started to come on when the car started, it then disappears after a while Dealer said it is due to cold weather however it is still happening at 6*C?
Yesterday came out tried to open the tailgate to load it with my three dogs and although it clicked it would not lift up . Tried it with the remote, the tailgate button and under arch kick sensor all with same result so had to lift manually. Turned ignition on to see a low battery warning light thankfully car started. Cannot see why I had a low battery indicator as had done over 150 miles the day before. Anyway after driving 70miles to destination tailgate is working as it should. Have it booked into dealers next week for a check up, anyone else having similar problems.
Thanks Paul M

I have seen a few reporting low or flat battery problems. Either on this forum or the other more popular one. Have you checked your tyre pressure? Had my camera freeze a few times but your set up is totally different to mine i would imagine.

Hi Craig tyre pressure is fine, thinking it’s the sensor, hopefully it’ll get sorted when it’s in the dealers next week. Incidentally my electric tow bar failed and the whole unit had to be replaced

Have you checked on the other forum concerning your problem s. I cant remember a definitive answer for the battery problem just people experiencing the same. With questions such as doors left slightly ajar. Hopefully your dealer will get to the bottom of it but no doubt you will be the only person this has happened too.🤣🤣
