2005 Range Rover HSE - Random Radio / CD Problems

My 2005 Range HSE radio / CD has stopped working. The audio system power button on the dash flashes randomly, occasional sound (music) will come thru the audio system. The audio cutout initially was triggered by hard braking. Now it is continuous. I looked in the radio/audio boot (Left Rear of vehicle) found some corrosion on the bluetooth harness and connectors. Used a connection "deOX" cleaner on the contacts and then re connected. appeared to fix the problem for about 3 days. No moisture appears to be entering the radio area. The problem now appears regulary (every day w/in minutes of starting the vehicle). The radio display on the dash will "grey out" the radio and CD buttons during the outages. The Bluetooth randomly works on location of the cell phone. It will display "Phone not fitted". This rover has the HK7 with "MOST" system. Batt voltage is 12.72 volts and charges when running at 14.65 volts. Have pulled the fuses to reset, no change in issues. When the radio power button is flashing, the "orange light" inside of the "radio box" in the boot will flash. The GPS and suspension monitor portion of the system appears to still work as intended. Can anyone help? If this is a regular rover issue, is there a common fix or is there an aftermarket solution for this Audio gremlin?
Thank you.

I have an 05 hse with the same issue, prought it to an electrical specialist who went in the boot and unkinked the infrared wires from all components, it worked for about a month and a few days ago it started again,when you say you "deoxed" the bluetooth harness....do you mean the nokia brain in the left rear boot or the cell phone dock in the front center console??? I have an appointment with the dealership tommorow and i hope they find the WIRING issue instead of trying to have me buy $5000 in new computers that wont fix the problem,its a common issue in this model with the logic 7 just wish someone who has already cleared this hurdle would post a solution:(...I will keep everyone updated

    Both myself and a neighbour have the same problem on a 05 model. Mine worked intermittently when I purchased it in Sept 17 and then worked perfectly well all through the summer...as soon as the rain appeared so did the fault, must be moister getting in somewhere. Surly somebody must have the answer its so common..

    very upsetting, range rover says this is your problem. i disagree why would my car leak in the inside, it seems it is a widespread problem that land rover has not addressed ,they left it to the owners which i believe is wrong, all components inside car are getting wet because of a design flaw. land rover should own up to this problem and have a recall to fix it.

Hi guys found out what the problem was. It all tracked back to the Nokia phone brain box. Just removed it bypass the fiber optics around it. Done. No more cell phone Bluetooth for the truck. But it was poor anyway. Good luck and cheers to everybody.

2003 range rover HSE...radio used to turn on and off at will...now I'm no longer able to turn it on...GPS workign fine...Is this a radio issue or an Amp issue? would i need to replace to complete display...


if the radio is not working then it's the Radio module located on the rear (tail) on the left. you need to replace that to have your radio back to normal. but before that try to remover the fuse and fix it back as sometimes it gets stuck internally..the fuse located in the glove box. open the led and read which fuse for the radio

Software upgrade for 2005 Range Rover Bluetooth module


Official LRNA solution: buy a new module. I will be doing this tomorrow. I have been through this comprehensively with LR Dallas and LRNA. There may well have been other modules installed depending on when the Rover was built, but mine is not flashable. BTW, when plugged in, the dealer computer checks your Rover for updated software, which is downloaded from LRNA every night.
