Hi guys we had a restricted mode come up on our discovery sport 2015 in February stating oils low top up I topped this up imediatly but the car stayed in restricted mode so took it around to the local garage they rang and said the car needs new battery and oil pump And sensor we had this fixed and they said the car is now showing a throttle problem but they are to busy so we took the car to another garage replaced the throttle body and had a regen done on the dpf the car would still not some out of restricted mode so they sent the wires to be looked at and again they said there were some faulty wires so we had these fixed the fault stayed the garage said we don’t know what else to do so we then took it to land rover what a waste of time that was £190 diagnostics to be told we need a new one we then took it to a specialist and they have tried different throttles on it and have tried everything they can think of and now we’re £1000s of pounds down and no further forward anyone else had similar issur

So you went to a bunch of backyard mechanics and they all told you something different and did several unrelated repairs . Then you went to LandRover and they told you you needed a new one ( what new one?) and then you went elsewhere.
I would go back to either LandRover or an authorized repair depot and get an actual cause of your problem.
What codes showed up when the car was scanned?

They were reputable garages and the last garage is specialised in land rovers they have just said they have never come across this before I will ask them what codes come up again tomorrow.
Land Rover just did a diognostics and said because of the work we had had already done they didn’t know what the problem is and just quoted for new everything.
We topped up the ad blue the day before all the problems and some spilled around the area the ad blue goes in but garage said this wouldn’t affect it.

Does your vehicle have the 2.2ltr or 2.0ltr Diesel engine?

I would presume this is the 2.0 ingenium diesel as the Ford derived 2.2 didn't have DPF etc. as far as I know.
You need to check codes to start off with. It does sound as if there may be a wiring issue / damage to wiring as you seem to be getting a variety of faults. It is always worth just looking at any wiring you can get at, associated with the known issues to check for damage. These newer engines are very sensitive to air leaks or incorrectly fitted components so one of the garages may have caused another issue by accident. If you are not able to work on it yourself, then there are plenty of adverts in LRO and LRM magazines for specialist Land Rover garages. Have a look for one in your area.
I drove from Stourbridge to Famous Four in Louth (145 miles) to get my timing belt replaced on my Range Rover Sport before I had my discovery, just because I didn't really have much trust in the local garages to do a good job. There may be a common cause associated with the faults you are getting, so don't spend money just replacing components without proof that the particular component has caused the fault.

Fault code is p2112-73. Could the original thing it went in with they replaced oil pressure switch oil pump drive chain be causing these faults
Code for stuck throttle body actuator which is not unheard of with the 2.2 Ford engine previous to your 2.0l ingenium engine as well. They stick due to the EGR gasses and oil being fed back into the intake. You need to remove the intake manifold along with the throttle body after disconnecting the EGR pipe, air box etc. Give everything a good clean…..use new seals and make sure the EGR pipe is correctly seated, it’s a bit fiddly, but fairly straightforward job, probably take a good half day with the cleaning. The throttle body shouldn’t need replacing unless high mileage. The Ford type is about £100 (may be plus vat) so I presume the ingenium one is similar price. Worth cleaning the EGR pipe while it’s off. Even if the throttle body has been replaced the inlet manifold will probably need cleaning….the Ford engine has butterfly valves within, I’m not sure if the ingenium engine is similar, but these tend to stick as well.

This is why I wanted to clarify which engine Jonathan has. He mentioned the vehicle year is 2015 and I didn’t think the 2.0ltr Ingenium was available until 2016. The older 2.2ltr engine did not have adblue which Jonathan says he topped up just before he started having issues.

Yes seems a bit early for the Ingenium diesel which were 2016MY. My 2017MY has just passed 28,000 miles and I’ve recently cleaned the EGR pipe and where it connects to the manifold….it was already quite mucky!
I meant to add…please don’t tighten anything too tight as most of the fittings are plastic and easily broken!!!
