Car: Land Rover Freelander L series
To update the issue with my Freelander, I would like to tell you that I´ve tried the paperclip method to read the fault codes, but no faults detected.
Following your previous suggestions to detect and solve my problem I realize that the idle speed remains in 1250 RPM when I brake the car to stop it and when the car engine was running with more than 1000RPM, if less and I brake, the engine goes normally to the 900RPM.
In the case that the engine stays in 1250RPM and the car stopped, the engine remains in this high rotation indefinitely, but if I release the break, then the RPM goes slowly for the normal RPM of 900.
So, I think that the problem, could be with the brake light switch (or the bulbs), because as suggested by you, if faulty that can cause the ECU to sulk.
Tomorrow, I´m going to replace my brake light switch for a new one, so let’s see if this resolves my problem, I hope that will do. I will post again tomorrow to update this action.
Thank you very much
