Land Rover Discovery (2009–2016) Service Manual / Electrical / Lighting / Autolamps / Interior Lighting / Diagnosis and Testing

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION

For a detailed description of the Interior Lighting, refer to the relevant Description and Operation section in the workshop manual. REFER to: Interior Lighting (417-02 Interior Lighting, Description and Operation).

INSPECTION AND VERIFICATION

CAUTION:

Diagnosis by substitution from a donor vehicle is NOT acceptable.

Substitution of control modules does not guarantee confirmation of a fault, and may also cause additional faults in the vehicle being tested and/or the donor vehicle.

NOTES:

  • If a control module or a component is suspect and the vehicle remains under manufacturer warranty, refer to the Warranty Policy and Procedures manual, or determine if any prior approval programme is in operation, prior to the installation of a new module/component.
  • When performing voltage or resistance tests, always use a digital multimeter accurate to three decimal places, and with an up-todate calibration certificate. When testing resistance always take the resistance of the digital multimeter leads into account.
  • Check and rectify basic faults before beginning diagnostic routines involving pinpoint tests.
  1. Verify the customer concern
  2. Visually inspect for obvious signs of damage and system integrity

Visual Inspection

Visual Inspection

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step
  2. If the cause is not visually evident, verify the symptom and refer to the Symptom Chart, alternatively check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and refer to the DTC Index
  3. Check DDW for open campaigns. Refer to the corresponding bulletins and SSMs which may be valid for the specific customer complaint and carry out the recommendations as required

PINPOINT TESTS

NOTE:

The interior lamps should extinguish 20 seconds after the vehicle was unlocked if a door was not opened.

NOTE:

The vehicle will lock 30 seconds after it was unlocked if a door was not opened. If this has occurred, unlock the vehicle using the smart key unlock switch and wait until the interior lamps extinguish before continuing.

NOTE:

Steps 2 to 4 should be completed within 20 seconds.
