Is Our New Battery The Cause Of These 10 Fault Problems?

We've dealt with this a few times and I saw someplace that someone said when you replace a battery something needs to be reprogrammed somewhere?

This dash cluster heart attack keeps happening and then basically shuts everything down. Sometimes it stays in 1 gear when in D and we have to switch to manual to switch between gears, other times it won't do anything - just stays in 1 gear, can't shift manually or automatically.

- Lots of lights lit up
- "Suspension Lowered"
- "Transmission Fault"
- "HDC Fault System Not Available"
- "Cruise Control Not Permitted"
- "Transmission Fault Limited Gears Available"
- "System Fault Special Programs Not Available"
- "Special Programs Off"

The errors happen back to back to back to back, nonstop until they go through everything.

It's SOO frustrating! Can't drive the car anywhere.

I tried to upload the images here to the post, but for some reason it didn't work.

Swapping the battery is unlikely to cause that and the vehicle does not need programmed for the battery

There is a note on page 4 of the attached document:
"If a new battery is installed, the battery monitoring system
(BMS) must be reset using Land Rover approved diagnostic
equipment".


beside that the battery disconnection/reconnection has specific procedures, one of the 5 described must be followed ecxactly as to not mix up the management

IMO you have to go to a main dealer to reset the system, download and read this https://www.pdfhost.net/index.php?Ac...c6e165b292a485

Sierra being serious I noticed that pdf seems to cover to MY14 that would be model year 14 I think. It may be lumping LR3 and LR4 together. I have read there is a battery monitor system in the LR4 but I don’t know of such a system in the LR3.

See the header of the documents... AFAIK they all have BMS though it's known that on early modells (up to 2007) the BMS was not so sensitive and reset was not mandatory on all as long as the battery was replaced with the proper procedure while starting from 2008 the whole thing became more complicated and as the OP didnt mention the year i attached that document cos as all the trouble started after the battery replacement there's a big chance that a reset is needed

Just digged a bit deeper in this...it seems that there are modells without BMS as there is a testing procedure which appears in the early modell's workshop manual called: "PINPOINT TEST A : DENSO NON-BMS GENERATOR DIAGNOSTIC FLOW CHART - A1: MIDTRONICS BATTERY TEST" so it's obvious that the BMS reset is needed only for the modells with BMS

Couldn't this speculation be resolved with a simple reset?
