Thumbs down XYZ gear selector Discovery II

Hi everybody, just joined the forum,
I have just today replaced the XYZ gear selector on my 2001 Discovery in the hope that it would cancel the 2 green flashing lights on the dashboard, it didn't!! Has anybody ANY ideas as to what to do next as I am at a total loss. Im in the south west of France and its winter, just when I need the vehicle the most.
Id appreciate any thoughts or previous experience so I can get the vehicle on the road again.
Regards
Charlie Cook

All we know is two green flashing lights. Can you give us detail about your problem.

Hi. There can be around 20 reasons for flashing M+S warnings and the way to the root of it is by reading the fault code stored in the autobox ECU

My friends call me Fery

2000 Discovery Td5 ES manual

Hawkeye v.6, Nanocom EVO,
VDM UCANDAS, oscilloscope


if you think my english is peculiar it means you didnt hear my japanese

ALL MY ADVICES ARE BASED ON MY OWN KNOWLEDGE AND MY WAY OF UNDERSTANDING THE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION OF SYSTEMS... I'M NOT A LAND ROVER TRAINED SPECIALIST JUST AN ADDICTED ENTHUSIAST.

A very common cause of the flashing, green M&S lights is low voltage. Fery is correct that there are 17 transmission faults that can trigger the flashing M&Ss and replacing the (expensive) XYZ switch without getting the diagnostic codes read is just throwing money at the problem blindly. Check the battery and alternator voltages.

'99 DII, STI wires, Champion 7070s, '04 CDL & SLABS, Garvin WILDERNESS rack, painted headliner, air springs victim, headgaskets at 109,000, plus victim of XYZ (twice) and many other ridiculous DII failures. Option B AMIGO FREE since February 2011.

Runs like a top; now if I could just afford the gas! December 2014 update - Wait, I can afford the gas! Drill baby, drill!!!
