returning today from keene nh in a snowstorm the range rover was running with climate control on manual and the vent setting was windscreen and leg warming.

the ice was forming to fast for any other setting.

the fan was running at 3/4 of full speed.

about 10 miles from home the climate control and radio suddenly went dark and would not operate.

initially i expected to find a blown fuse.

once home i unloaded groceries and did some chores figuring to come back out after a while and deal with the climate control malfunction.

upon starting up the engine to give the climate control and radio alighted immediately and worked properly.

what happened?

That's likely the safety mechanism to prevent you from overheating the LCD screens and the system.

While this has never happened to my Rover, the exact same thing happened to a '11 Wrangler I was driving after about an hour of having the heat on full blast. The prolonged use of heat forced the navigation and radio to turn off to prevent the screen from overheating.

It started working again because you gave it time to cool off.
