    Exclamation Defender Puma 2.4 TC light with TC comes on and goes into limp mode

    Please we are in desperate need of help! Our 2008 2.4 Defender Puma 110 has a fault that not even our dealer can diagnose. The car's TC light and the TC comes on for no reason. A while after the car goes into limp mode. When the ignition is turned off and on it is back to normal for a minute or two and starts again. The car does not give clear fault codes. Only a PWN Signal failure but they say it is not specified.All the sensors were checked as well as every small thing we , our mechanic as well as the LR Dealership can think of.
    Please if someone had any similar problems let me know! Don't know what to do anymore.

    They should not normally be related, try remove the ABS fuse , this will illuminate the dash tc but should be able to drive (just no abs brakes working)and see if goes into limp mode

    I have already tried this. The TC stays off but the car still goes into limp mode. Really confused.

    It has to be related to the wheel speed sensor, check if the wiring is in good condition allround.

    Like Jakkals said!

    In addition, crawl in under the left hand passenger door and check the earth connections to the body and a little bit further away, also where the earth is attached to the gearbox.
    Actually, take the time and loosen all the earth wires and re-do them properly.

    Defenders just love bad earth cables!! Well....bad and broken wiring in general actually...

    If the abs / tc has been disabled the wheel speed sensor have been disengaged.
    probably wise to check all earths as previous post, check battery is secure as well.
    If limp mode normally engine protection excessive heat or faulty sensor or fuel starvation First easy check is the fuel tank breather then fuel pump pressure.

    This might not help at all but i once change my rear brake/tail lights to LED and TC came on if I touched the brake, would have to switch off and on again to reset TC light but if you touched the Brake light would come on.
