    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Lux Santorini Black

    Car dead.

    Well went out in the car this afternoon and stop at traffic lights then all electronics and stop dead. Tried the usual lock car to reboot nothing happened unable to lock car also hazards lights won’t Even work. Called Landrover assistant. 1. 5 hours later AA roles up. This time I’m causing Massive traffic issues😣. Any way AA man checked battery all seems ok.then plugged his battery buster pack to main battery and then had life back in to motor. And he’s say I’ll follow you home. Then bang car all dead again. As before placed is battery pact to main battery in back then car started. Any way managed to drive home with his battery pack plugged into battery. Also had engine management light on. To cut a long story sort. The AA chap said I know what the problem is it’s a bad earth to the battery. He’s relocated the earth and checked battery all ok (before he fixed the problem the battery was only pulling 1.5amp now fixed Over 50amp. He said there’s a recall for this issue. I can’t see anything on topex. (Has anyone else had this problem) by the way this is a 2020 HSE lux.
    This could have ended up has a big incredibly expensive insurance clam it has happened on the motorway. It worth thinking off.
