:mad:
Made a few calls to the DEALER...man if there was something to substitute DEALERS! no help no return calls so far!

Technical issues descrbied:
1- Tire pressure system fault
2- NAV system went blank for a few seconds
3- Throttle response stalled for a few seconds
4- USB - IPOD connector no longer charges (CHARGING AGAIN - after a day off for the car)
5- REAR camera on reverse stay black for about 5 seconds, flickers and then connects

Dealer says none of the above is related to each other...OKAY! that doesn't help much.
They told me to keep driving and see if it happens again...FAIR
Called in again, since # 4 and 5 happened and they directed my call from SERVICES to SALES...sales person, REAL NICE, but never return call...FAIR, maybe she is researching and WILL get back to me! I will wait a couple of days before I judge!

Here is a full description of the problems;
1- Driving on the highway, not touching anything and in cruise control, Tire Pressure System Fault signal on the dashboard, simultaneously the car disconnects the cruise and throttle does not respond for 2 to 3 seconds; I drove another 5 miles, stoped and turned off vehicle, after 30 minutes started and continued, 1 mile after the vehicle throttle stalls again, NAV changes pages by itself and blanks out for another 2 seconds, and Tire pressure system fault disapears and the vehicle becomes NORMAL and without any problems for another 48 hours.
2- The 3rd day, took the car for a trip, no way I could charge my iPhone in either USB or iPod connector, phone dies while I am on a trip, no power coming out of those ports. Once I arrive at my destination, I charge my phone half way in the house and go for a ride 1 hour later, then connected my iPhone in EITHER port and I got power back! weird! yes, as I tried troubleshooting with three different cables, two different iPhones and a Androind phone that were half to fully charged... Called in the dealer to advise of what is going on, they ASKED do you have the problem NOW, NOPE, it corrected itself and all is working... OKAY...sorry about that, but calls us when you have the problem...NICE!!!

3- Last, when I engage reverse, the rear view camera screen goes black for about 3 to 5 seconds and then it works, however, SOMETIMES and most of the times, when I connect reverse, the camera goes on properly in about 1 to 2 seconds, and without any problems! GO FIGURE?

Anyway, this is jut to give you heads up in case you have, or will have same issues.

Regards and any input would be very appreciated.
safe ride,

I've encountered problem (3) once but none of the rest. Are you driving the diesel or petrol version? Read in other forums and found most hiccups occur in the diesel.

I have a Petrol, I finally got an appoitment with Land Rover, they will keep the vehicle for a week and LOAN a vehicle for the time they will try to diagnose the problems!
Now a new thing came up, NOT RELATED to Eletronics I guess.
NEW PROBLEM: Hot air in a cold winter here in NY blows only in the FRONT VENTS, when COLD fresh air exits the real vent! isn't that BIZARRE!

I will keep you all advised when I get a asnwer from the Dealership. I am scheduled to drop the vehicle on the 24 DEC and pick it up on the 30 Dec.
Stay dafe,

That sucks...but at least they're loaning you a vehicle to compensate for the inconvenience...it'll be a different story in Singapore...

The other thing i'm surprised about is the service frequency...i'm told that I only need to service the evoque after 26000km...thats like a year of driving without changing the oil...equivalent to wearing the same underwear for a month!!! Maybe I'm just too used to all the previous rides that require the standard run-in servicing and at maximum intervals of 10000km.

I still have yet to figure out how to control the rear air vents. They seem to only put out cold air. Anyone else have any luck?

I had someone in the back seat yesterday for the first time and they said they could only get cold air..whats with that.... of course I still haven't read the manual

Here it goes:
I was treated like a KING in the dealership, they checked the entire car electronic system, reset them all and found a gear changing CODE and cleared.
Now for the NAV and Tire pressure fault system, I have not had it again for a week so far, the NAV is a bit slow STILL when you engage reverse, the rear camera SOMETIMES delay to appear and I get a BLACK screen while it loads the camera (about 15 to 20 seconds) which happens to be a lot if you think...but that only happens ONCE IN A WHILE, and still happens and dealer has a open case on this and the throttle stall as they do not know what could be!

The throttle, it happened again yesterday, but now with careful observation, I noticed that all times it happened I was actually leaving an intersection and for whatever reason, I had my foot in the break pedal while I started accelarating, then I released and this is when it happened (throttle get mushy and will not accelarate for about 5 seconds) even if you step to the floor.

Now as a aircraft pilot and thinking of safety systems, It may be a safety feature that recognizes you were pushinig the break pedal and the throttle will delay! maybe...I tried replicating the problem and COULD NOT.

Now, for the treatment at the dealer...I had a BRAND SPANKY NEW LR4, no miles loaner...TOO BIG, but what a nice and comfortable ride! V8, what do you expect?

Take care everyone,

Funny and maybe DUMB but the rear will only put cold air! and the best explanation about his is because the car is short and the warm air comes from the FRONT vents, so it is no need for warm air going back!
Anyway, I just hope that Air Conditioner blows cold air in the summer!

Take care,

When you are talking about the throttle does it seem like you are taking off in 2nd gear? I have that constantly and i hate it. You get that rattle almost stall feel as if you are driving a manual and your are in the wrong gear when you accelerate.

I feel that rattle feel also when slowing down and the trans is shifting down. I hope the dealer can correct it through some program reset but if you get any info on your matter please post.

Did you guys press the paddle shifter by accident? I did that when I was test driving evoque, and the dealer turned the gear knob to D again. Try this and let us know if that's the problem or this is a real issue with evoque.

Finally I found something out by trial and trial!
There are moments when you want to leave an intersection and you may still have your foot in the break pedal, pressing it slightly, before you really LAUNCH!
For example, NYC, heavy traffic, I am ready to go, but too many vehicles approaching and I am holding the break pedal, but at the same time I am starting to accelaerate, then the weirdest thing happens...
I get stuck in the intersection, cars will come REALLY close to me, they are OBLIGED to break becuase I am in the middle of the intersection, accelerating and nothing is happening for the next LONGEST 3 to 5 seconds!
I replicated this situation a number of times and now I am 100% sure that this is a SAFETY FEATURE (which no one in the L.R. dealership knows about it) that does not allow you to accelerate while you have your foot in the break pedal, even if it is just a tiny bit pressed...It took me time to realize that, as I supsected it but everytime I tried replicating, I guess it did not happen because I was aware of it!
Anyway, now I know exactly how to do it and for obvious reasons I avoid doing that, since that is actually a safety issue inherit in that particular safety feature!

Anyway, this is when I have a lag and a stall in my accelaration.
Take care,
brazeagle

By now you should or the car dealer would of told you that if you accidently touch the paddle shifter you can hold the +paddle for two second and it will resume to selected gear D!

Yep! Had the car for four days! Then Gearbox problem! IT refuse to drive at all. This happen when driving on the freeway. Light sudden flashing, so I quickly park the car on the emergency laneway. Then Engine still running, gear would not engage to 'D'? The dealer were good enough to give a brand new loan-car for few days. Fault: three computer related to the gear-box were replaced!
After I got it back for two-days of driving (50Km), it is work 100%, but to break-down when your in-Laws is over to see the car is very embarrassing! And does nothing to help the image of the Brand! I guess it was better then buying BMW in Australia. I live in Melbourne. Before I purchase the Evoque, we were actually going to buy the X3. But the Neighbour's Brand New 5 Series burnt up after one month of driving! Then there is the Tow-truck transporting the Evoque, on the way I heard on the radio there another 4 x BMW and 2 x audi requesting tow-truck! Hmm.....

Well, I've had the same issue as the OP in this case, about three weeks ago. I was driving and then, without warning, everything just lit up. Charging Fault, TPMS Fault, Entertainment system rebooting constantly or staying off, SmartKey not detected, Transmission Fault, just about every warning or error message that the Evoque can display, I've seen all at the same time.

Went to the dealership and they apparently re-flashed a few of the computer systems with newer version. This "fixed" the issue, until this morning, when it started doing it again.

According to the dealership, it was a misbehaving computer talking on the main network, but they didn't look convinced.

So now, I have to call the dealership again, for the same problem, and they really have no clue.

My question to brazeagle (the OP) is: Did they fix yours and if so, what was the exact fix (with specifics if you have them)? I'd like to give the info to my dealership. I believe they can use the help...

No permanent fix!

No permanent fix yet, I picked up the car and in he same afternoon I flown overseas, so I could not test it.
As I mentioned in another post, they found problems with misfiring 2-4 pistons and some electric short they don't know from where, but they flash the ecm and cleared the codes, but no correction was made because they don't know where yet. Waiting for some news from Land Rover England.
Also I mentioned that when I drove off the dealership, abou 6 miles out, I noticed that my steering wheel electronic controls... ALL CONTROLS failed to operate, I drove back and complained, and they could not find the source, so they ordered a new steering wheel and will change it when I am back from overseas, so now my wife is drving the car without any of the steering wheel functions. (audio, cruise, heat)

Will keep ou all posted.
Regards,
brazeagle

Mine is still at the dealership, and they still have no clue. They are also apparently talking with the LandRover engineers. I'll post when I get it back and will inquire as to the exact fix they did (if any).

Well, got mine partly back. It seems that the backup camera wiring to the medium speed can-bus was corroded (8k KM!) and was causing feedback on the bus, making everything on that bus shutdown. They ordered some harness and a new camera and disconnected the old one for now until they get the parts in (2weeks+). So far, it looks like the problem is solved. We'll see when they connect the new camera back.
