Customer Question

I have a new style XJ which is approximately ten years old. The centre display panel in the car intermitently fails resulting in no radio, CD sat nav or reverse parking.
The jag dealer doew not seem interested in making a repair and says the whole console needs replacing at a cost of approx £2,500. Being a non mechanic, it would seem there is just a loose connection somewhere!
Is this a common fault do you have any suggestions?
Many thanks

Does the screen go completely blank? Is there a flashing 50 51 displayed on the small green LCD screen below the touchscreen? Can I have the last six of your VIN / chassis number?
