My wife's 2005 Range Rove HSE's CD changer stopped beoing reognized by the head unit a few weeks ago and the radio stopped working a few days ago. It happened just after I changed the left rear tail light. Now all she has is the Range Rover Logo and an orange flashing light on the bottom left hand button. I have removed the fuses for 24 hours (all 6 of them) and, on the advice of an audio shop, I disconnected the battery for an hour. Neither worked. I found it interesting that after I replaced the fuses the Air suspension, brakes and ABS system indicated a fault until I moved the vehicle a few feet. The same fault happened when re-connected the battery, and was solved in a few feet.
Range Rover says it could be a lot of things, even programming, and it will take them an hour to determine if I have a problem (I think I know the answer). To his credit, he said that the hour would include “re-programming” which may fix the problem and should likely determine which module is malfunctioning.
Here are the questions: Has any one else experienced this problem and solved it with our a dealer visit? Does anyone know for sure what component causes this and recommends I should just head to an audio shop for an aftermarket replacement. Assuming the head unit id gone, does anyone have a recommendation for a good replacement?
Our audio system is only the radio, CD changer and the NAV system.
