Kinda sounds like this from Rover's TSB (TEC860704 041028 Electrical - Warning Lamps/Various System Malfunctions) but, before you go this route I'd suggest some professional assistance since this may, or may not be the issue...
Electrical - Warning Lamps/Various System Malfunctions
Date: 28 October 2004
False BCU Input Signal
AFFECTED VEHICLE RANGE:
Range Rover (LM) up to 4A162652
FALSE BCU INPUT SIGNAL
A false input signal to the Body Control Unit (BCU) can result in a series of symptoms (hazard lamps flashing, doors unlock, radio goes mute
and the interior lights illuminate). An electrical spike within the internal electrical circuits may be the cause of the problem.
REPLACE AND CONFIGURE THE BCU
Should a customer complain of these symptoms, replace the BCU and configure the new unit using T4.
