'06 LR3 backup chime problem

Hi - The alert chime no longer goes off on my 2006 LR3 - the light still blinks, i.e. the park distance sensor still works, but no sound. I'm assuming this is a module/bit of electronics in the dash. Any ideas on the part and how to replace?

Dumb question but is the chimr on? If you haven't already try pushing the p))) button above the radio. My kids have turned it off in out 3 when climbing around.

Question. How can you tell if an LR3 HSE has a electronic locking rear differential?

If you have nav you can see if your locked on the off road screen. Locked diff was part of the heavy duty package so that may show up on the vin. It also had a full size spare

A failed PDC sensor can set a fault where you'll get the warning light, but not the chime, or inconsistent alert. We use Autologic which can tell us specifically which sensor, but if you have a stetoscope or even a length of tube, you can hear the individual sensors clicking when you pass over them.

I think my front right is going out. I get a clunk when offloading over our massive driveway curb, dirt road washboards, and extreme braking. Doesn't look to be too bad of a job to do yourself. I found lots of good info on disco3 forum. Dealer quoted me about 1100 all in new arms and alignment, but I can get the both sides arms and bolts for like 400 if you don't go genuine. I doubt there are much difference in brands...if they go every 50k don't see why you need to spend 400 an arm for marginally more life if any.

I also recently found out that when parked uphill in the driveway, and its really cold out, like 15 or less, I get some dripping from the electrical connector on the transmission. But if its warm its ok. If I back into the driveway it's also ok, even when cold.

So it seems I have a number of the common nuisance items going on. No sun roof leak, but that's probably because it hardly ever rains out here.

I recently changed the transfer case and diff fluids. Difs were a good idea, they had a bit of metal in them. I used amsoil severe gear.

I also had some mystery noise of change inside. Stripped apart just about everything. Finally found it was a nickel in the heat fins of the amp under the passenger seat. I mistakenly turned the car on with the seat belt unhooked and have to go get the dealer to turn off the airbag light. But at least the rolling change sound is gone.

Other than that I really like the LR3. I get calculated 18-19.5 on the interstate at 75. And 13-15 around town. I find that the trip mileage is off by a couple mpg continently.
