System Operation


Operation of the transmission is controlled by the TCM (transmission control module), which electrically activates various solenoids to control the transmission gear selection. The sequence of solenoid activation is based on programmed information in the TCM memory and physical transmission operating conditions such as vehicle speed, throttle position, engine load and rotary TCS (transmission control switch) position.

Engine torque is transferred, via operation of single or combinations of clutches to the planetary gear trains. The gear trains are controlled by reactionary inputs from brake clutches to produce the 6 forward gears and 1 reverse gear.

The shift elements (clutches and brakes) are actuated hydraulically. Fluid pressure is applied to the required clutch and/or brake, pressing the plates together and allowing drive to be transmitted through the plates. The purpose of the shift elements is to perform power-on shifts with no interruption to traction and smooth transition between gear ratios.

Component Description


The transmission comprises the main casing which houses all of the transmission components. The torque converter is located in a separate converter housing.

 Event data recording

Event data recorders are capable of collecting and storing short sequences of data during a crash or near-crash event. The recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event. The EDR may record information about vehicle dynamics and safety systems, potentially including such

 Before driving off-road

Before venturing off-road, it is absolutely essential that inexperienced drivers become fully familiar with the vehicle's controls. In particular Hill Descent Control (HDC) and the Terrain Response system. Basic guidance for Off-Road driving can be found in the Land Rover Off-Road Driving han
