Managed to finally get a hold of an Autel AL619 ABS/SRS/OBD2 Scan tool after hearing from various sources on the forum that it will work for Land Rover ABS codes. Wanted to piece together some useful information for anyone interested in picking up the tool. I'm in no way affiliated with Autel or anything of the like, I just wanted to relay my experiences to anyone interested in clearing their codes.

It does in fact work, and it works WELL. Ordered it on Amazon for $167 on Monday and received it at the office today. Spent half an hour getting registered with Autel and then installed the available updates via the included Micro-SD card.

Went down to the car, plugged the 619 into the OBD2 port, went through the various menus and made my selections and within 3 minutes it showed my 4 ABS codes. Saved the info, cleared the codes and low and behold the 3 amigos + BRAKE light that have been hard-set since December disappeared. I still have to fix the causes but I am more than pleased with the immediate results.

Spent the next few minutes messing around with the OBD2 feature to find some other faults and look at freeze frame data. It's all very practical and easy to follow.

I have nothing but positive things to say. Previously our only options when clearing ABS codes were to go to a dealer and spend $100 for every scan, or pony up the $208 shipped cost for the single-vehicle, single function ABS Amigo. Now, for only $167 shipped, we can have all of the functions of the Amigo with the added function of the OBD2 scanning, live data, freeze frame, etc. It's truly a one-stop scanner for LR owners. And for $40 less than the Amigo.

I'm not trashing the Amigo, it's a cool unit that does it's job, but I have no idea how they'll be able to compete with an Autel that is $40 cheaper while offering so much more in terms of versatility and functionality.

So, bottom line, the AL619 does read and clear LR ABS codes without breaking a sweat. It is pricey, but considering the fact that it works on so many cars and resale value is likely to be quite high - it is justified. I'm a happy customer.

I have one as well, it does the trick and can check out the srs system as well(pretty sure we have the same model). I don't have a LR to use it on but it works the treat on my wife's Mercedes, my Saab and my dad's fords.

Great tool at a great price.

I found out about it on landroverforums.com

I actually have an account on another site. I think its lrrf or something. Wherever it is Disco Mike had to help me figure out how to register.

The best part of it if I type a LR question in Google from any computer the best answers usually come from here. So I guess I'm stuck...be honest I aint got The time for another one.

Good answer. From a different site then. Keep us informed. I might do that one. Never got around to the black box. Or a lift kit. But hell 4 other crappy cars occupy me.
