Land Rover Discovery 3 instrument cluster repair

land rover U0155-87, discovery 3 instrument cluster repair

The Land Rover fault code U0155-87 – lost communication with instrument cluster control, is a concerning indication that the instrument cluster in your Discovery 3 is failing. Common cluster failure will appear as an intermittent issue at first, however, it can rapidly become permanent if not fixed.

This failure often results in a wide range of issues, particularly loss of the LCD display, and limited to no gauge operations, such as the speedometer, fuel gauge, and other dials. Further cluster failures can affect the warning lights, and sensors, it is responsible for, creating backlighting issues which will leave the dashboard blank.

Due to internal breakdown, communications between the cluster and diagnostic equipment will be prevented, it is also possible for the instrument cluster to deteriorate causing the engine to intermittently cut off and even result in the Discovery 3 not starting.

To resolve this issue, main dealerships will resort to suggesting a full replacement cluster instead of a repair, however, this will require extra resources to code the new unit to your vehicle, significantly increasing the cost of your replacement.

We offer a simple solution, quality rebuilds of all Discovery 3 instrument clusters within 2-3 working days, that come with an unlimited lifetime mileage warranty attached, saving you money and time, along with eliminating the chances of the fault happening again.
