Default THREE AMIGOS FIX

Good day, I recently purchased a 00 Discovery II. How can I determine what exactly is causing the three amigos, and are there any scanners out there that can read or clear the fault codes? My goal is to resolve this cheap! Any direction will be much appreciated as this is my first L.R.

The codes have to be read by a shop with a Testbook capable scanner. This is what the dealer has. There are others that can do it, rovacom, autologic, but your run of the mill shop won't have it. Needs to be a rover shop. If you can't find one, call atlantic british and they will tell you where the closest autologic shop is..

Good Luck!

Nope, the Bosch ABS is just very sensitive and can be tripped easily. Some Rovers are not as bad as others, brake dust and how you drive has a little to do with it.
