Help Please! Got this light on my 2013 LR4

Tried looking through the history of posts to see history on this but couldn't find anything. I got this light today on my 2013 LR4, does anyone know how I find out what the fault is and if it's OK to drive my car with this light illuminated?

Thanks in advance for any help, it's appreciated.

It's a Check Engine Light. Could be anything related to your engine's management system, which is a computer and a network of sensors that control how the engine operates. Sometimes a simple as a loose fuel filler cap.

It's afe to drive short-term, until you have a chance to find out what the problem is. Any parts store will connect an inexpensive tool at no charge and tell you what the codes are and probably what they mean. if you write them down and post them, we can probably tell you more. Just because it has a code that says something like "O2 sensor bank 2 primary" doesn't necessarily mean that you need that sensor. It just means that's where the ECU is seeing an issue. A more advanced tool may be needed to do a complete diagnostic.

Thank you for the information. I'll do exactly as you recommend and that it to a auto parts store to find out the codes.

Went to Autoo Zone and got the codes. Although it read 3 separate codes they were all the same except the last line:

P2096. MOD$00
Trim system too lean bank 1
Then these different 3 last lines

CONFIRMED

PENDING

PERMANENT

Sounds like a fuel mixture issue? Anyone hav any input on this? Safe to drive the vehicle?

By chance, did you recently have an air filter replaced? That's a common code for an intake tract air leak.

This can also be caused by gunked up injectors and sometimes a clogged fuel filter. Or possibly some poor fuel. Little neighborhood gas stations are a good place to get bad gas. Always buy from one of those big, shiny, very busy places. I'd suggest a strong dose of a good injector cleaner additive as a start.

What's your mileage?

BTW-- Safe to drive.

Thank you for the information, very helpful. Haven't change the air filter but have put in some "neighborhood" gas lately. I'll take your advice and stike to the "shiney/busy" gas stations from now on. I'll also put some injector cleaner in the tank and see what I get.

BTW, 64,000 miles.

Royal Purple and Redline both make a good cleaner. Definitely get that air filter changed- it could be plugged and causing the issue. Look around for anthing that might be leaking or misaligned.

Those big stations that sell alot of gas usually are pretty cautious about their suppliers, about keeping their filters changed and they go through so much gas that it's not there long enough for bad things to be happening to it.

At that mileage it's probably ready for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pu5s_kOMcc

You should also be doing fluid changes on your transmission, differentials and transfer case about now. Oil is dirt cheap compared to what those parts will cost you. Use a high quality synthetic in all of them.

Thanks again for the help on this. I put in a small bottle of fuel injector cleaner in my tank and filled it with a "shiney" station 93 octan gas and the light went out. I'll also take your advice on the air and fuel filter change as well as the fluids serviving.

Like I said, you've been very helpful and it's appreciated!

Another question for the Land Rover informed. My vehicle came with only one key. Is there a place (other than the ultra expensive Land Rover dealer) that I can get a spare electronic key?

Hi Raymon, have you been using regular fuel 87 or 89 on your LR4? Also a BG fuel injection cleaning is a great way to go.

Occasionally I would use 89 fuel when at a sky high priced gas station but I regularly buy gas at "off brand" gas stations. From what I've learned here, won't be doing that anymore.

BG fuel injector cleaner? Is BG a brand?

BG is a brand. Typically sold at professional service shops.

You may cringe at having to buy the premium fuel over a lower octane, but your vehicle is designed to run on it. You'll find that when you put good gas of the proper octane rating, you'll pick up some MPG. If you want to be really surprised, find a local station that sells 100% gas, usually around boating places. What you're getting just about everywhere is 90/10, with 10% alcohol.

Go to an indy Land Rover mechanic shop that offers the BG fuel & injector service your LR4 probably needs it. Also have them clean the throttle body. Only use 91 or 93 octane. Some mobil stations also offer 100% gas as C090 mentioned and yes the proper octane will make the engine run more efficiently.
