Land Rover Terrain Response Experience Day
Date and time: Saturday, 14 September –9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Description: This is a 1 day practical event following the LR Essendon D3/D4 Tech day. Unfortunately, the theory part did not cover as much ground as we would have liked. There will possibly be a theory / discussion session in Melbourne prior to the day if enough interest.
The aim of this day is to review some of the theories and put them into practice.
Some of the things that we will cover will include:
How to release a jammed Electronic Park Brake (EPB).
How to shift PARK to NEUTRAL in a car without battery power.
How to Hard Reset the car.
Front and rear speed sensors - LLAMS and RODS
Brake light switch (a fault here can disrupt the entire CANBUS!)
Emergency Repair of EAS (Electronic Air Suspension) System
Tricking the Car into Emergency and Extended height
Underbody protection - Location of the compressor? How do we protect it?
OBD fault code reader.
Vulnerable underbody electrical connections
Terrain Response System:
How does it work?
How and when to use the TR Modes? - normal, sand, snow, rock crawl, grass, mud ruts
Central and rear E-Lockers
ES – On or Off?
Hill descent versus driving through the brakes
Demonstrate on the course how to use the TR specifically for these conditions
Weather: e.g. From sunny to wet and cold. See
Equipment: Land Rover Terrain Response cars D3/D4/RRS
Snatch straps, shackles, dampener, compressor, UHF radio (or one borrowed from the club) with low range and All Terrain tyres (preferably), but road tyres not excluded
Trip Standard: Easy to Medium (Occasionally Hard). Different terrain will be used to demonstrate the capability of the system.
Fuel: Full tank ex Melbourne – More than adequate.
Distance: Off Track Less than 50 Km
Duration: 1 day
Convoy limit: 10 vehicles
Meeting arrangements: e.g. We plan to meet at Black Spur Inn Narbethong and depart at 9.00am sharp. If you plan to get coffee beforehand then you will need to arrive a little earlier. We will aim to finish about 5.00pm at the Black Spur Inn.
