    Hello!
    My freelander 2 (year of 2007) had Have some electronic products, such as the lights of the radio does not turn off when the car the car is locked; and the radio sometimes does not turn on, and in the situations i need to switch off the battery for 10 min, and then switch one again and the radio then is operational. The car was sent to LR for check up, however they don’t have a valid solution. Can anyone help me, please?
    Many thanks!

    The radio is fitted with 6 presets.
    The LR can not identifyed the origin of the problem, which is a electronic level problem that can provoke erros in the normal funtcion of the car, such as in the galasses,mirros and radio . Although they consider the problem with dificult solution and without a correct known of the real problem.
    As I said before, sometimes these problems are resolved with the shut down of the battery for 10 min, and then turn on again.

    thanks for your time td4van!

    How long does the radio stay lit up for?

    It should stay illuminated for about 2 minutes until the car shuts down.

    There were a few technical bulletins on this to update the software in the radio to resolve the issue.
    I assume everything else electrical on the car is working normally?

    hello again!

    Sometimes the radio stay all night with light up, and in the morning i had no battery in the car. Yeah, in the normal situations the radio stay light up for about 2 minutes after the car shuts down.

    Could you please be so kind and tell me which are this bulletins for upgrade the software and where i can found it?

    No, as i said, sometimes the mirrors do not close when the car is closed and the windows do not go down and up with the automatic buttom, we have TO pusch the bottom up and down TO close or open, respectevly.

    i think that these electronic problems disapeer for a moment when I turn off the battery, and put it on again. However, they appear after some time. I think that it might be a bad eletrconic circuit, which it changes the normal operation of the car.

    I will still wait for your suggestions, thanks in advance, again!

    best regards!
