Customer Question
2009 SL550 with 15000 miles...
2009 SL550 with 15000 miles. Today, after about a half hour operation. Command (Nav, radio, SAT, Phone) system shut off. Then would automatically power up for about a minute, then shut off. Kept repeating this. Finally shut it off. I had just finished (or in the process) updating/renewing/getting download from Sirius. Thanks.
