For a full coverage with suspension issues on a LR3 you'll not find a cheap tool, depends what you consider ''reasonable"... for what it can do the GAP IID is not unreasonable but even though it's the best it's not cheap at all... the cheapest which covers the D3's suspension quite well is Foxwell NT520 (Land Rover/Jag) which is a multivehicle tool for all Land Rovers/Jaguars but very smart for it's price, for example https://www.ebay.com/itm/FOXWELL-NT5...-/182919905817 search one which is not out of stock.

I use a Foxwell for the last three years and it does a good job. there are things it cannot do but then I don't need to modify the ccf file

The Delphi is very limited with programming i dont recommend it, Nanocom and GAP have both full coverage but expensive, Hawkeye Total is not smarter at all than Foxwell but more expensive and needs additional dongles too

Fery - does the Foxwell really monitor the CD player? Looks like that when I saw an example of the screens.

Thanks everyone i will look into all these. To clarify “reasonable” i dont need to reprogram anything or code keys. I just need to read and understand ( i have the service manual with code meaning from a previous post)what codes are being put forth. I changed both balve blocks and i was good for quite awhile but the suspension lights are back! I don’t expect anything “cheap” but i dont need the best either. Thx again

I dont know as the ICE is out of my area of interest but i dont think that any tester would cover that.

Surprising that you don't recommend the Delphi. I prefer to use it more than my Foxwell when I'm working on my Disco and other car models.
But the Nanocom Evo is still King. lol

That ''much more" is in it's menu but doesnt work well...i had to use nanocom at least 5 times untill now to correct what they messed up with launch tester when it was in relation with the BCU. For the D2 is very unreliable IMO

Weird maybe had a bad version, but I have programmed keys on landrover and jaguar, calibrated suspesion reset and relearn adaptations... I have SDD jlr and it has most options except online programming.
