    2005 Range Rover Radio Problem


    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.

    Hi Mike,

    Problem is not the radio but your amplifyer, it is sitting at the back between the radio and the tailgate light.
    Check the three connectors on top for oxidation, best is to get it out of the boot and clean sockets.
    There is a common problem on water comming in , try search on "radio dead no sound"
