The new key that JSF had was a key 4. Can I ask are the fobs programmed to the car when they are made or does this happen when the key is synced with the car if you see what I mean.

Sorry should have asked in the previous post where to get my key cloned.

Hi all.
Have checked as OB said and I have key 1. jSF have a brand new fob which was ordered in for somebody else. I know the key part would have to be recut but could the fob be made to work with my car.
Cheers

Hi all.
I could really do with another key fob as I only got one with the car. I did also get a manual key as well. I spoke to my local independent LR specialist (JSF Norwich) and they quoted £210 for a new fob including programming. I don't know which key fob I have as the numbered part of the label has gone. Is there a way to find out which I have by plugging the car into test book etc.
Cheers.

Cheers Marty.
I think I have key 1 as it works with the lazy seat and sets it to position one. I think the easiest option would be to just order another key. The lazy seat thing doesn't bother me so key key 3 or 4 would do if available. To sync the new key is it just a matter of putting the key in the ignition.

Morning all.
I have the DSP system in my car and it all works fine apart from when turning it on it emits a crackling sound for a second or so after this it's fine. It also does the same when the sat nav woman speaks. Any ideas?

Thanks for the advise. Was going to have a look today but my local wilco had sold out of contact cleaner so been doing other stuff instead. If I get time during the week I will pull the amp out and have a look for any water damage and clean up connectors etc.
Cheers.

Hi all.
Pulled the amp out today and it all looks fine no water ingress all contacts look fine but I cleaned them all with contact cleaner. Put it all back together and it still crackles as before. I did notice it's worse when the ignition is turned on. I was wondering if it's the sat nav starting up. If I just turn the radio on with out the ignition all I get is a little hiss and then it's away. I cranked the volume up and it sounds bloody awesome. I really hope it's not on the way out.

No I didn't do the footwell connectors. Will have a look at them during the week. I can't tomorrow as we are at a car show. I will also pull the lead from the nav computer and see if that makes any difference. I would be happy to let Marty have a look at the amp if that will help sort a replacement as long as I get it back working but that would have to a bit later in the year when the car club show season finishes.

Hi all.
I have pulled the footwell plugs both sides and cleaned them with contact cleaner. Both sides were pretty clean anyhow. I have noticed the the crackling comes from the speakers in the rear doors and boot. No crackling from the front. Once it's up and running it sounds superb with no more problems. Any more ideas? I will probably just live with it and see how things go.

Hi all.
A bit of help please. My radio DSP system is making a lot of crackling and popping noise both on the radio or CD setting. Sometimes it's worse than others and sometimes it's fine with no unwanted popping. I did check the connectors last year for corrosion including the ones in the footwell and they were all clean I still pulled them and gave them a spray of contact cleaner. I also pulled the DSP amp and checked that and all looked ok. I was wondering if this could be a sign of the head unit starting to fail. I don't really want to buy another on the off chance that it could be this. I know I could fit an aftermarket unit but to be honest I prefer to keep it original if possible. Any advice gratefully received.
Cheers.
Rob.

Hi all.
Went to a local car show the the RR today and as we were waiting to get in the EAS warning came up on the dash along with all the hight lights. Compressor was working and the car still self adjusted the ride height. The car didn't drop to the bump stops and stayed at the normal hight. I restarted the car after a couple of hours and all is back to normal no warning lights and the system operates as normal. Drove the car home a bit later again with no problems. Any ideas.

Happy new year all.
Advice please. Went out to the RR yesterday turned the key and the sat nav screen is white. Wasn't like this the last time I used the car. I assume it's the CD player unit in the boot that's decided to give up. I have tried a different disk on different. Radio/cd is working fine. I read somewhere that when this happens it can mute the volume? Any help much appreciated as always.

Well what do you know. Sat nav is working fine today came on as soon as I turned the key all the inputs wook as they should and it's showing the correct location on the map. P38s don't you just love them.

I have a question about the sat nav display. Is it possible to access the bulb/ bulbs for the buttons on the display as mine flicker.

Hi all.
Bit of help please. My battery on my P38 is an Exide EB621 62ah 540cca. This seems small to me and I know the battery can cause electrical issues with the P38s. It's always started the car fine and through the winter I keep a battery conditioner connected so it's always charged. Thoughts please.
Cheers Rob.

Hi all.
Thought I would check out the door base speakers on my car as I have a crackling sound when starting the car or turning the radio on. Sure enough the foam which supports the cone has fell to bits. Is it worth repairing these with a new foam or replacing the speakers. Are the Vogue SE 2002 speakers the same as std Vogues or are they something different. I see on eBay there are plenty for sale but they all have a different part no to mine. Can anybody advise what to replace with if I brought new. The other speakers in the door are fine so would only want to replace or repair the bass speakers.
Cheers again Rob.

23 February 2019 - 16:58

Thanks for the advice. Would they be a direct replacement. I have the DSP amp on my car. The speaker I removed has 3 ohm marked on it. These are 4 ohm ? Sorry I really don't know to much about this.
Rob.

23 February 2019 - 21:25

Cheers for the help. Just to clarify the 4ohm bass speakers all round should be ok with the DSP amp??
