P229E fault code

Post by jimvirgin » Wed Feb 12, 2020 9:31 am

So the above fault code popped up today.

The car is running fine, so I cleared it and it popped up again within a few miles.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks

Great thank you- that was my instinct too.

Now I need to figure out which one it is!

Im using a Foxwell NT414 diagnostic system which isn't really specific to the Land Rover so it doesn't tell me which bank its on....

It is not necessarily the NoX sensor that a generic code is indicating.

My advice would be to visit a retailer and have the vehicle correctly interrogated, as otherwise you could potentially be looking for a needle in a haystack.

You don't state the age of your faulty vehicle. If up to 2017.5, then anybody running SDD and >v154 will be able to tell you specifically. If your vehicle build is later than this, then it becomes slightly more complicated as not many independents have subscribed to Pathfinder currently, largely due to cost implications (Well, someone has to pay for Dr. Ralph's Golden Goodbye....)

You are quite right I omitted to mention the vehicle details.

It is a 2016 (66 plate) HSE with 37000 miles.

Thanks again for you input.

I took the car to Alltrack 4X4 near Malvern today for a more thorough diagnosis on their Land Rover specific equipment, and they confirmed it is the Nox Sensor- unfortunately the expensive one of the two which as a small ECU attached. They replaced it with an hour.

The part itself was £200 from Land Rover Hereford and the fact it was on the shelf would suggest that it is perhaps not the most uncommon fault!

Thanks again

Got exactly the same on 66 discovery sport so looks like a common issue. We are on 48,000 miles. Just checked and got the fault code, they wanted £125 to check what code was.
