#2809 of 4548 Fuel and Coolant Tank Replacement Update
Nov 10, 2005 (7:27 pm)
My car stalled once after I bought it in April 2005. In September the fuel gauge started doing funny things as others have expereinced. The low coolant light kept coming in even if the coolant was full. I brought my LR3 into the dealer today and they returned it to me with the new fuel tank, and coolant tank by 1:00pm. That is some great service. My service reps are great. They even threw in a full tank of gas and provided a loaner car. I am extremly happy with owning my Land Rover LR3. I use to have an '03 Disco.

I noticed in your post you wiper blade broke and scratched the windshield. This happened to my driver's blade and it left a half-circle scratch into the windshield. The dealer replaced the blade and holder and said I must have broke it removing snow. I do not recall doing it and was wondering how yours happened and what the dealer did for you.

I have had this happen to three customers now with bluetooh integrated cell phones. They have phones that do not have an option to disable call waiting and so when a call comes through and they try to switch over to it their phone to car link is scrambled.
If you can't disable call waiting on your bluetooh phone then just do not pick up the incoming call it will scramble your phone and possibly do other funny things to the cars systems.
If you do happen to pick up a call by accident and things get scrambled you can probably correct the problem without bringing it to the dealer. Simply shut off the car and then disconnect the bluetooth phone from the car. On your phone somewhere there is an option to drop bluetooh connection. Once you do that it should descramble the connection and you should be able to reconnect the phone. This should also shutdown the navigation screen if it was staying on with the car off. I have seen that happen a couple of times and seems to be a side effect of trying to use call waiting with bluetooh connection.
I am reposting this on all Land Rover boards.

... do other funny things to the cars systems.
Please define "funny things."

Thankfully, it's documented fairly clearly that both Call Waiting and 3-Way Calling is unsupported over Bluetooth.
It does work if you have a dockable phone with the cradle, though. Without it, the system is pretty cheesy.

Yeah it is documented but apprently a lot of cell phones now cannot have call waiting disabled. I have had customers that have just forgoten that they can't use call waiting and tried to switch over to the call and caused problems.
As for causing other funny problems. I have noticed twice now that sitching over to a incoming call with call waiting has done two things.
1. The phone number of the last incoming call is stuck on the radio message screen and you can't switch to CD or Radio functions.
2. The Navigation screen just stays on even with the car shut off completly and the key removed and you can even use the touch screen to activate different features.
Dropping the car to phone bluetooh conection seems to solve both these problems though.

I guess someone should really open one of those Land Rover corporate "problem reports." Even if the features are not supported, you shouldn't see behavior that I'd consider a crash in any vehicle system. D'oh!

Yeah I do not know if land rover is aware of this yet our rep will be here sometimes this week so I am going to talk to her about it.
Right now I have seen the problem twice both with the same type of phone. I would like to see a few more cases with different types of phones.

I was out looking at LR3's as a possible replacement for my wife's Disco II. The local dealership is advertising invoice pricing on all 2005 and 2006's. I called the salesman up and he swore that a 2006 fully loaded HSE on the lot was $50,900.00 with lux package and Heavy Duty package (the only available options). I always thought and read that HSE's were rare and no deals were given on them. What is the take?
