thanks for the reply. I am trying to find out what the actual problem is.
Personally I am finished with LR dealerships as they are only trying to on sell/up sell other unrelated (created) problems and the quality of their mechanics is poor.
I recently had an experience where I was treated as if I knew nothing about cars and just walked away leaving my wife to talk to the service manager. I ended up paying for a software upgrade to fix a problem that they caused?!? Still did not work.
The light issue on the console could only be a connection or light issue both of which should cost noting. I accept the labour in removing the console and replacing it may be some cost, but nowhere near the amounts you have mentioned.
I have had this DS since new in 2015 and it is an excellent vehicle in my pinion and we are keeping it for a while still. I am now however, sourcing 'old school' auto mechanics and electricians to deal with the car.
Keep in touch if you have any luck and I will do the same.
