Hi,

I am hoping there is a saviour on here who can help me fall back in love with my car. I have only had it 6 months I have even contemplated getting rid of it because I cant seem to sort out these small issues:

1. I had a service done by kwikfit but they could not reset my service notification on the dashboard. They tried numerous times and even had me take it back when they had an 'expert' in but he still couldn't do it. I have read the post below about how to reset it but I don't get the message on the dash after open bonnet, door and put car on etc. Really don't know what to do?

2. It says the diesel exhaust fluid is low so I have filled it up but I am still getting the message. Do I need to manually reset this or should it go off once filled up enough. This could be I haven't put enough in but I was conscious I didn't want it to overflow.

3. My full beam is so bad. Like it makes no difference to the road infront, it just adds a bit more light upwards. I have changed the angle of beam etc but this still makes no difference. Does anyone else have this issue? Any idea how I can change it?

Sorry if im a novice asking silly questions, im not the most technical with cars.

Thanks in advance!

I believe that in the UK there was a software update that had to do with oil dilution that prevents resetting the service reminder. Land Rover has the equipment to do it and maybe some of their authorized service centers. Phone one of them to find out.

Not sure on the Discovery but some cars need the DEF filled to reset the warning.

What kind of lighting system on your car??

Thank you for your response!

That's a pity about the software in the UK, I wonder what charge land rover will cost me just to do this :(

Ah ok I thought that could be the case, need to get some more then to fill it up.

Now here is my rubbish knowledge on cars... they are just normal, none of these LED etc ones.

Thanks

Same issue with service required message in Aus. my independent mechanic can't reset it even though he's a LR specialist. I believe in the US this is illegal but not here.

No idea on fluid warning, might be worth a trip to your dealer to see if they'll advise you free.

Seems odd that high beam is not brighter, my 2015 lights up the road ahead super well. Could it be that one of the high beam bulbs has blown? Or even both? Don't know how the mechanisms work on these. May need to be realigned.

I think the change was made because the Diesel engines need extra service because of oil dilution, because originally owner could reset.
With HID there is only one bulb per side.
