Re: Heated steering wheel upgrade - advice please

After looking into this myself, the heated steering wheel connector/multiplug that goes into the clockspring and fits next to the yellow airbag connector is missing.

So that pretty much ends that retrofit.

Re: In control Remote - loss of vehicle contact

The telematics control unit is situated behind the left rear passenger side bolster. This has a built in SIM which communicates with JLR servers and sends/receives updates about the car itself, this can close down if the battery is low on charge. I'd first try placing the battery on charge if you're...

Re: advice for removing in-dash 12v accessory socket trim panel?

It literally just clips into place, just pull it down at the front and angle it out towards you.

Re: Heated steering wheel upgrade - advice please

Re: Is InControl Standard in all 2017 XE R Sports?

I just replaced my XE with an XF that had expired subscriptions. You need to email CRC with your V5C for them to look into it, they’ll then extend the subscription for a few days to be able to renew the subscription. Dealer can only remove the vehicle from other accounts and add them, they can’t ren...

Re: Incontrol Remote - Unable to add vehicle

Unless it already had an active subscription when you bought it, I don't think you can renew it. I believe once it's expired it's gone forever. That doesn't appear to be true according to JLR FAQ Should your subscription have expired then you will need to ensure your vehicle remains in an area of g...

Re: Incontrol Remote - Unable to add vehicle

I'm currently in a similar situation as I just part exchanged my XE yesterday for a 2016 XF S, I've added the car onto my incontrol account and I can see everything as normal just obviously can't use climate features. But because I haven't received an email to renew the expired subscription I cannot...

Re: 3.0D V6

I've just bought a 2016 XF 3.0d S, they have such a massive amount of torque from low down (same amount as the SVR F-Type!) and can be re-mapped to 340bhp for less than £400.

Can easily do high 40's on the motorway and way over 600 miles to full tank of fuel.

Re: Infotainment Software Update latest S20A_20.16.5-536345 (May'20)

You'll ony ever get bug fixes now going forward with Touch Pro, as all attention is on the new Pivi Pro in the new Defender and due out in the new XJ. You had better go over and speak to the people on the Velar forums then as there appear to be one or two enhanced features that they have uncovered ...

Re: Infotainment Software Update latest S20A_20.16.5-536345 (May'20)

Did mine this morning and apart from the new "In these uncertain times........." screen that comes up first it seems just the same. At least it left my audio settings alone this time..............which is nice. That new screen does seem a bit OTT though if you ask me. :roll: You'll ony ever get bug...
