Land Rover LR3: We have a 2005 Land Rover LR3. The radio displays

Customer Question

We have a 2005 Land Rover LR3. The radio displays "Phone Mode" and does not come out of that by pushing any of the buttons. It does come on occasionally but for very limited time. It also only comes on the first time the car is turned on. After that it does not work. If I take out the Amp fuse the radio works and the Phone Mode goes away but no sound comes out. I can change stations and everything but no sound. When it is in "Phone Mode" if I turn the radio all the way up you can here music but only very lightly.

Thanks for trusting us with your problem. I have trained in the automotive field and currently work as a lead technician. I will be helping you today

This is a internal failure with the chipset on the radio itself. To fix the problem you have to replace the unit with a new or used unit.

I recommend a used one from to save on the cost a great deal.

I have only came across this issue one other time so it is not extremely common.
