no faults this winter - well almost none
Last year and the years previous I would get the random lights and the like.
This year so far none - well that is if you do not count a lock nut undoing on a front tie rod such that the steering wheel sat at 2 O'Clock when running straight. The steering wheel rotation sensor apparently discussed the issue with the yaw sensor and the tyre rotation sensors. After a sufficient length of straight road with no turns, it would turn on the suspension lights and message machines etc. A second wheel alignment resolved that fuss.
I also have a new brake light switch but that was usually HDC not available messages and similar - have not seen them lately fortunately.
My perhaps solution to your concerns was not connectors or sensors, but a couple of wiring overlays. I found the connectors between the wheel height sensors and harness were better than they look and do seem to keep out moisture and corrosion. What is not so good is the harness itself - at least on the 2005 and I guess 2006 units. I think it is Cat5 cable wrapped in something black, OK I suppose for inside the cabin but not so good tied to the frame and lined up with the wheels so as to get max soak and rock spray whenever the road surface does not quite meet the standards of Land Rovers Sandringham Estate by-lanes.
Corrosion of the internal conductors sets in and with the addition of moisture, lights illuminate. Eventually the lights stay on and you end up repairing the harness. Overlay is the polite way of LR saying they did not quite get it right the first time and you pay.
