Why does my Range Rover say restricted performance?


If your Range Rover displays a message that says "restricted performance," it typically means that the vehicle's onboard diagnostic system has detected a potential problem with one or more of the vehicle's systems or components. The restricted performance message can appear for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Engine Trouble

If there's an issue with the engine or related components, such as the fuel system, exhaust system, or ignition system, it can trigger the restricted performance message. The issue could be due to a faulty sensor, a clogged air filter, or a more serious problem.

  • Transmission Issues

A malfunctioning transmission or related components, such as the clutch or torque converter, can also cause the restricted performance message to appear.

  • Electrical Issues

Faulty sensors, wiring problems, or other electrical issues can also trigger the restricted performance message.

  • Fuel System Problems

Problems with the fuel system, such as a clogged fuel filter, faulty fuel pump, or bad fuel injector, can cause the restricted performance message to appear.

It's important to take your Range Rover to a qualified technician as soon as possible when you see the restricted performance message. Ignoring the message and continuing to drive the vehicle could lead to further damage or expensive repairs. A qualified technician can diagnose the issue and recommend the necessary repairs to get your vehicle back to peak performance.
