What is this discussion about?
Land Rover LR3, SUV
#2552 of 4548 Thanks for the info. Some questions & comments
Sep 03, 2005 (11:17 am)
I have a 2005 LR3 HSE, silver w/ black interior. Purchased 6/05. I have had issues with hazing on the interior door panels. It has seemed to go away with leather cleaner but should not have been delivered by the dealer in this condition.
Curious if anyone is having problems with side view mirror memory positions and memory seating? When the car is in reverse, and the mirrors tilt down, when the car is returned to drive the mirrors go to the factory default position . The problem continues after the mirrors have been repeatedly re-set into the memory. Perhaps an associated problem, the memory seats do not get recalled to their position from the remote they are programed to. (lazy entry is on) The first time the dealer addressed this problem, they said they reset the memory module, however the problem continues.
I also have averaged between 17 to 18 MPG at 75 MPH on interstate driving conditions.
I have read on this board that sometimes the navigation system remains on after the car has been turned off. Mine did remain on when I first got it, but has not since. The dealer said this was "normal" as the radio can be used once the car is turned off. ???
I have not heard anything about the bluetooth phone kit. Is the Land Rover kit available as an add on or aftermarket option yet? If anyone has it, does it work well and would you recommend it?
Final question: I recently had the front windows tinted at a Land Rover dealership and was told the sun roofs could not be tinted. Has anyone else been told this and were you given a reason. I am between California and Arizona and the heat can be an issue.

You sure you are setting the mirror memory correctly? While sitting parked with the key in the ignition at position I or II (not started), adjust your seat and mirrors to your liking... then press MEM on the seat followed by 1 (or 2, or 3). This will bind your preference to the key in the ignition. Now, when opening the door with the key fob... the seat & mirrors should adjust to the specific key's setting if you have "Lazy Entry" enabled. You may also want to read the manual.
Search for Bluetooth or PTI... talked about numerous times.

yep that is how i am setting the mirrors and seat. i even had the dealer program BOTH keys to the exact settings/memory when i left last time i was there as they thought "maybe i was using the wrong key". it is scheduled to go back in the shop in a week and a half.
one other thing i forgot to also ask in my last post, has any body had any trouble with the lumbar support on the drivers side seat? to me it feels as if it does not come out as far on the right side of the seat as it does on the left side, when it is rolled out to its max position. just curious, thanks.

According the the WS pdf posted on the discussion the lazy entry has nothing to do with the memory settings. I have verified this through trial and error.
When lazy entry is on for a specific key is works as follows:
"The memory settings are stored within Electronic Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM) of the memory control module each time the ignition switch is cycled from position II to position I. These are the positional values that a lazy entry request uses when the remote unlock button for that particular key is next pressed. "
I think that your deal doesn't even know this.

Yes, it's tied to the specific key... so far we've all said setting/programming the keys, and not one of the seat memory settings. FYI: I've always done the seat memory step (doesn't matter if it's 1, 2 or 3)... maybe it isn't necessary? But I've never had any issues.
#2557 of 4548 LR3 HSE Seat Memory instructions
Sep 05, 2005 (8:05 pm)
I was asked to post this from another forum. This is supposedly the procedure being passed around to Land Rover dealers by their technical staff to resolve confusion:
LR3 Seat Memory w/ Key Function:
Set all preset seat positions 1, 2 and 3 (at this point do not worry about key function).
Turn on the Lazy Entry option using the IPs settings menu.
Turn key on and select preset 1 (the one you want to program to this key), once the seat position is reached store preset 1 again. Turn key off and remove from ignition.
Insert same key and turn back on, press preset 2 or 3 and wait until the seat travels fully to it's preset position... then press preset 1 again and wait until the seat reaches its full travel position. Turn key off and remove from ignition.
Test function by pressing unlock one time.
This can all be done with the driver's door open and there is no need to lock and unlock the doors or start the engine.
#2558 of 4548 Satellite radio?
Sep 06, 2005 (9:44 am)
Someone posted elsewhere that their dealer is saying Sirius satellite radio will soon become a factory option for 2006 LR3... even though no documentation or press releases say it will. Land Rover customer service, at last check, says no. Anyone hear anything better than standard misinformation?
#2559 of 4548 Re: LR3 Recall-Fuel Tank - Details [grommet]
Sep 06, 2005 (10:11 am)
My LR3 is in this VIN range. So, my wife called the dealership regarding a replacement tank/loaner vehicle and they said--snippily, apparently--that we weren't supposed to know about the recall. And, they said the new part is not yet available anyway. And, they said that the recall is only for UNSOLD vehicles (they called it a "quarantine" recall) and that they weren't going to do anything--on the basis of the recall--for already sold vehicles.
Is what they say true? What am I supposed to do about it? My wife, needless to say, does not want to drive a car with a potentially exploding gas tank. I suppose I should have expected all of this from Land Rover. But griping doesn't fix things. So, does anyone know of an approach I could take to get to the bottom of this-- other than my making an unannounced visit to the dealer and making a controlled fit in front of his potential customers?

General rule: Dealers are fairly clueless and often don't get details before you. Calling this an "exploding gas tank" issue is a bit excessive; read the full description. The document clearly says "Land Rover plans a phased notification to owners beginning the week of October 14, 2005." No need to have a fit.

You probably know about this Sirius link but right now only the Range Rover and RR Sport offer it as an option.
Yahoo also said a couple of months ago that only the RR and RR Sport would get it in '06.
Hopefully the dealer was clued in and correct so you won't be limited to aftermarket.
