During our 10 Year Anniversary we have purchased two Land Rover SDD2 diagnostic systems from SPX. This brings our total Land Rover diagnostic systems to five, three Land Rover SDD2 diagnostic systems for vehicles from 2005 and two Testbook T4 Land Rover diagnostic systems for vehicles from 1987 to 2006.

The CF-19 MK5 Panasonic Toughbook Laptop is the cutting edge in Land Rover diagnostics running the ‘state of the art’ SDD2 Symptom Driven Diagnostic 2 system. The CF-19 is powered by Intel Core i5-2520m CPU@2.50GHz with 4gb of RAM.

The Land Rover Symptom Driven Diagnostic 2 (SDD2) is being introduced to improve diagnostic capability. SDD2 represents a leap forward in diagnostic technology for current vehicles, combining the ease of use and familiarity of previous diagnostic systems with enhanced, up to date software.

We have also equipped our SDD2 diagnostic systems with Midtronics ChargeXpress Pro 50-2 battery chargers which allow us to carry out unit programming safely without drop of vehicle voltage which could corrupt downloads.  We are subscribed to Land Rover topix for workshop manuals, technical bulletins, electrical wiring diagrams, repair times and product recalls. Our SDD2 is fully authorised by Land Rover and we pay a yearly subscription for access to all diagnostics and programming, this is updated as Land Rovers engineers update vehicle system software.

Les Potts said, with the introduction of Evoque in 2011 we have seen a significant increase in service and repairs through our service department. 85% of vehicles which are bought into ourselves for service or repair are now connected to our diagnostic stations. We decided to add two further SDD2 machines to compliment the 3 diagnostic stations we already have. This got me thinking in 1992 when I was the Workshop Foreman at Dutton Forshaw Durham we took delivery of the first Testbook T1 and despite Land Rover been owned by Rover, BMW, Ford and now Tata. The SDD2 machines we have purchased today still contain the software to allow us to connect to vehicles from 1987 to 2013 using either the T4 or SDD2 diagnostic systems.

Les Potts 4 Wheel Drive we have had up to date versions of Land Rover’s diagnostic systems for 10 years now and we will continue to be at the forefront of Land Rover diagnostics in the UK.
