Land Rover Discovery: Warning Devices / Diagnosis and Testing


For a detailed description of the Blindspot Monitoring system, refer to the relevant Description and Operation section in the workshop manual. REFER to: Warning Devices (413-09 Warning Devices, Description and Operation).



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.


  • 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

  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

  • Using the manufacturer approved diagnostic system, check the left/right blindspot monitoring control module for related DTCs and refer to the relevant DTC index


For a list of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) that could be logged on this vehicle, please refer to Section 100-00. REFER to: Diagnostic Trouble Code Index - DTC: Blindspot Monitoring Control Module (BMCM) - (Left/Right) (100-00 General Information, Description and Operation).

     Door Lock Cylinder (G1348139) / Removal and Installation

    REMOVAL NOTES: Removal steps in this procedure may contain installation details. This procedure is for removal and installation of the door lock cylinder only. The ignition lock and door lock cylinders are replaced in sets. NOTE: Loosen the bolt, but do not fully remove. Torque: 4.1 Nm I

     Diagnosis and Testing Telematics

    The complexities of the electronics involved with the telematics system, of which the GPS antenna and navigation display are parts, and the multiplexed communication network which are connected to it preclude the use of workshop general electrical test equipment. Therefore, reference should be made
