I am not sure if any lights came on but a warning flashed up on the display,it was so quick i think it said "system failure ". The thing is i ran out of fuel a few days ago and i was wondering if the fuel filter was clogged due to this?,but the black smoke has been there for quite a while!!(Intercooler pipe or egr valves?)Better to keep quiet and be thought a fool, than open my mouth and prove it !!!!!

HDC FAILURE, TERRAIN RESPONSE FAILURE; PARK BRAKE FAILURE
I have a lot of problem with my LR Disco 3. I have the following lights on: HDC fault, parking brake fault, ABS fault, terrain response fault, and speed indicator off.
I tried to change the battery but no results. Few days ago, I opened the ABS plastic cover, and cleaned the electrical plug with a CRC spray disossidant.
like a magic all the failure ligts become off and all the car sistems work fine.
This until this morning, when all failur lights are on. I repeat the cleaning procedures and everythings ok.
Naturally the land rover dealer tell me that have no idea how to fix the car.
Please help me!!

Your problem could be a few different things, brake switch failure (buy one for a 2009 Ford Focus, same exact part at half the cost), or the more likely broken red wire in the loom of ~65+ wires that goes along the starboard side of the vehicle (Driver if RHD, Passenger if LHD). This happens when a splice UNDER the shrinkwrap breaks so all looks well from above until you find the actual wire, remove shrinkwrap, resplice, re-shrinkwrap, clear codes. Water ingress can be a cause too, check for pooling water where that loom is as well.

I've recently purchased a 2008 HSE which had recently had the front lower wishbones replaced.
On the 250 mile drive home the car was faultless until I got within 10 miles of home when all of the above warning messages suddenly appeared and the suspension lowered to access height.
I plugged my fault code reader into the ODB port and it listed a whole host of comms errors with various body control units one of the errors was however steering angle sensor out of limts.
I booked the car into my local independent to have the steering geometry set properly as it had not been done after the wishbones were changed and the steering wheel hat been off centre by about 20 degrees.
When I collected the car from the independent the told me that not only had the geometry been miles out but also that the bolts had not been tightened fully and were working themselves loose which could account for the steering sensor being out of range.
When I first encountered the fault I bought a spare brake light switch but the independent have reset the steering angle sensor and so far no further faults have occured.
I will hold onto the new switch in case I get further issues as it appears that any sensor or switch linked to the body control unit can cause these problems if it is sending a signal which is out of normal range.
