This is 100% what mine is doing. I still have no answer. I notice the Sat radio also restarts on mine as well.I have a 2014 Sport HSE, same issue, static crackling sound from all speakers, don't seem to have this issue in the winter, just when the temp climbs above 80-85 F.
Audio used to shut down completely, but now it just disconnects all bluetooth connections and looks like it restarts, so if im talking to someone its pretty annoying if the bluetooth keeps disconnecting, connecting over and over. I changed the settings on spotify thinking it might be the spotify issue, but that didn’t help. Not sure if it’s an issue pairing with iphone X and up. Wish someone could upload a video on how to resolve this issue
Until now, i’ve read that it could be,
- A pillar pinching the cable
- Wet amp
- fuse issue
So I am cautiously optimistic that I resolved my issue. I bought the MOST optic link bypass loop from Amazon for like $10. I bypassed the Sirius sat radio module and I have not had any static or reboots over the last two days. I will keep the module bypassed for the next week to confirm if it is the issue then I will probably replace the unit. I assume those people with a DAB module instead should bypass it and see if it helps since they serve roughly the same function. Hope this helps other.This is 100% what mine is doing. I still have no answer. I notice the Sat radio also restarts on mine as well.
I have 2014 Sport, purchased new with all the bells and whistles. Love it. My wife has the 2019 Velar, with the crackling that has been referenced on this and other forums. Been back to the dealer four times, new software, no success. She is ready to change brands and I am not planning to replace my Sport with a newer version. Not good.Wow, just saw this in a recent thread about the latest software update (19A3). Looks like Land Rover is aware of the problem. Glad to know it's not just me! Anyone else here having this issue on newer (MY18+) vehicles? Someone mentioned they just started having this problem on their 2014 truck, but I never had this problem on my 2016.
A customer may complain of popping noises on all sources of audio, this update will not fix it. The issue is currently under investigation and should be fixed in the next full
Hey,Hi Rob. So I think my dealership finally made some progress on my audio issue. I mentioned in another thread that I was looking forward to 19B and once it was installed over-the-air, it did NOT fix my issue. So I brought it into the dealership and they acknowledged the issue and put their lead service foreman on it who specializes in audio/infotainment. Long story short, after a few failed attempts of trying to fix it himself, he got in touch directly with the Land Rover engineering team who had to remote-in and install some workaround software updates and updates to some modules.
After over two weeks of being at the dealership, I would say the problem is 95% fixed! I've been driving the truck for a few days now, and I can't hear the noise while listening to my normal stations. I think I can faintly hear it during very mellow/soft songs, but it's barely noticeable.
The service tech said Land Rover is still aware of the problem and is working to address a permanent solution in 19C. I think this whole situation is unacceptable for a vehicle at this price point, but I will say my service tech took it very seriously and didn't want to release the truck back to me until he was confident he had made some progress. He even followed-up by email yesterday to see how everything was going so he could report back to the engineering team at Land Rover.
