My daughter has called for advice, the Red warning light has come on on her 3 year old Discovery sport.
She never got an amber warning first.
She called the AA, they said don’t drive it contact the main dealer.
He had connected a diagnostic computer and said there was a valve open that shouldn’t be.
Land Rover can’t do anything for a week.
The car has had some 70 mile runs in the last week so not just stop start journeys.
If it were mine I’d run it up the motorway and hold it in a low gear but the experts are saying don’t.
Any thoughts?

It's a Land Rover, so it's probably an electrical fault mis-reading something, or something else has failed triggering the light and hence the lack of amber.

Agree I'd try blasting it around a bit, but I'm sure they'd use that to wriggle out of any warranty repairs or what have you, I imagine it will log distance driven with the red light illuminated.
