    Default Disco 3 fault code p080a

    Hi all. I have a fault code p080a on my disco 3. What do I look at first. The car just came back from one and a half years traveling east Africa. It has seen a lot of mud rain and bumpy roads what do I look for. Thank you.

    From google: Definition of error code P080A - Clutch Position not Learned.


    Do you have a D3 with manual gearbox?

    No it is an auto. Does that just need programming?

    No clue, but tell us more about the 1.5 years through East Africa... got a thread going somewhere?

    It's quite possibly your rear diff motor. It probably needs calibrating, rebuilding or replacing.

    Do you get the "Reduced Traction" message on the dash display?

    I do get that massage on the dashboard. The car did take a bit of a hammering so I suspected to do a lot of maintenance. All I can say it is an awesome 4x4.

    Will do a bit of a report on the car and maintenance that was done during the trip.
