I had a call from my dealer today, I was lucky that is had this issue while they had it on another matter, so they raised a case last week. Today I have been instructed to take the car in on Friday for a number of 'control module' updates as stated by JLR for this issue. Time will tell......

vaise, will you be asking them what they are proposing to update before they actually start? I ask because it seem as though they may and I stress may be looking at doing some kind of an update regarding service interval (see thread "Service interval).

Just a thought.

Ta, I am all over the service interval thread. But I cant really pick and choose what they may or may not update so I will have to leave it up to LandRover to know what they are doing here to fix the temp thing. Re the service due message, it would not bother me if they were to mod the software so that it only alerts half the time (as in over 12% not the current 6% computer 'guestimate'), seeing as by all accounts it is reading high anyway based on the independent oil analysis's. My services would be close to 15,000 klms then, which is what other cars have and a reasonable expectation of how long a car should go between services - a bonus would be if it is still free too as still outside the 34,000 2 year 'deal' - meaning a free oil service every other year based on my driving.

My DS has just been in for the interim oil change, mentioned the problem about the temperature sensor. They found that the voltage in the door wiring loom was intermittent. They have ordered another wiring loom, under warranty. They did say that they had also done a software upgrade but said this was related to the internal heating. On occasions the heater hadn’t come on.

I have another first for me. The OAT disappeared all together from the screen for a few seconds. When it came back it also reset the display in the bottom right of the instrument cluster. It came back reading -38°C when it was +24°C outside. You will also notice the bars under the display at bottom right are missing.

I usually have the dash set to display distance to empty.

When it came back...

That’s the first time I’ve heard someone mention that the bars bottom right are missing.

At least he music title “Cold Desert” fits the situation. :D

You can make them missing though I think by flipping through each of the available options on the bottom right by pressing the button on the end of the stalk to rotate through each. I personally leave it as instant fuel use, as everything else is on the main screen the way i have it.

I think you might be missing the point. Have a look at the two photos. On the top one just the bars are missing. On the bottom one they are back. The button on the end of the stalk wasn't touched.

Prior to the display disappearing the bottom right was set to distance to empty...
