Today is the 3rd time I've experienced this in my 2010 RRS. I got in the Vehicle and the dash cluster read "Key Not Found". The brake stiffens up and start button doesn't work. I sat there for 45 minutes trying different things and majically truck started up again. Now I have a Transmission error code on dash. Guess I will be going back to dealer for 7th time in 3 months. Is LR aware of this issue and is there a fix yet?

Sounds like you have a bad alternator, charge circuit wiring or main power poor connection. Trucks too new for a bad battery, although this can happen. Next time open the hood and try to wiggle the battery wires, then the relays in the fuse box under the hood. Tranny error sounds like a low voltage condition on start up from either a bad connection or an under charged bat. While in that fuse box look for any sign of corrosion or melted plastic signaling a high resistance electrical connection.

Umberto - Spoke to dealer service rep and they claim they haven't had this problem yet. They told me to contact Corporate in Mahwah NJ. Total BS. Do you think key replacement should fix this?

I know that until an "official" TSB is issued these Special Service messages are mostly internally issued warnings to dealers that there is a widespread issue with something in the car, Land Rover is aware of it and working on a solution. But the definitive fix for the reported problem is still up in the air and the solutions suggested in the interim are only educated engineering guesses. Most dealers don't even bother checking out these SSMs until they become TSBs, since they could be modified or pulled many times while Land Rover works on the problem, as evidenced by your own dealer's statement that they have never heard of this before...

Thank you much! Would be nice if my dealer rep was as knowledgeable as you. It's a really bad issue since you never know when you're going to get stuck.
