Hi all, I am new to the forum.
Sometimes have a similar problem with outside temp sensor. Parked up for a few minutes and sensor read -3 degrees when clearly its not. Another time, sensor read 4 degrees when clearly its not. Sorts itself out eventually. Has happened two or three times in the three months I have had the vehicle.

If this can help, a brand new technical bulletin has just been released to resolve this problem. It's LTB01119 that came out on the 24th of november and it's related to HVAC ext temperature.

Does anyone please have a Topix subscription right now so he we can all share it on this forum ?

Many thanks !

Further back a couple of posts it's reported the fix doesn't work., then one person says it does.
Anymore updates from those that have had the fix?

Hi Barnsh,

The LTB has just been released on the 24th of November, so all the latest posts don't take it into consideration. So, we can not have a feedback on it.

Did you read it yet or can you send us a copy of the text ?

Thanks

Julien

I was about to dip into my pocket to pay for a subscription to get this document but was given a warning saying:

"Before buying programming subscriptions
Independent Module Programming is only supported within the EU. This gives access to all non-security modules. Any subscriptions purchased outside of the EU will not be supported by Jaguar Land Rover."

Does this mean that even if I pay to get the document I won't be able to download it in Australia?
