This bulletin applies to 2012 Land Rover Range Rover vehicles as well as other Land Rover models. During general service, a user selects to run “Scan Disk” on restart within SDD (symptom driven diagnostics machine).
In doing this, a setting is changed that allows the scan disk to complete. This setting is not removed after the scan disk has completed, causing the scan disk to initiate on every restart.
