Understanding the Telematics Control Unit (TCU):

The Telematics Control Unit (TCU) in your Land Rover is crucial for connecting the vehicle to various cloud services and managing telemetry data. When the TCU encounters issues, it can trigger various dashboard errors, including the ‘SOS Limited Functionality Error’, impacting your vehicle’s functionality.

Common Causes of Dashboard Errors:

Typical triggers for these errors include a dead TCU battery or potential tampering incidents, such as vehicle theft. Understanding these causes is key to finding the right solution.

DIY Guide: Replacing the TCU Battery

  • Step 1: Locate the TCU Unit – Find the TCU in the trunk on the left-hand side of your Land Rover. Remove the carpet and panel to access it.
  • Step 2: Remove the TCU Unit – Use a screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the unit, then carefully pull it out.
  • Step 3: Replace the Battery – The TCU uses a special battery available at JLR parts stores. Use a small flathead screwdriver for replacement.
  • Step 4: Reinstall the TCU Unit – Reverse the removal steps, ensuring the unit is securely refitted.
  •  Step 5: Test the System – After reinstallation, check if the ‘SOS Limited Functionality Error’ has cleared. For persistent issues, further diagnosis with JLR SDD or Pathfinder might be necessary.
