Hi I’m Chris,
I just picked up my I-Pace today, and I already have a problem. Right now it’s sitting in my garage, the radio is on and won’t turn off, the volume won’t adjust either. And neither center screen will go on. I can start it and drive it, and the gauge screen works but the radio stays stuck on and the center screens off. I was sitting in it going through all the touch screen items to learn the system. I turned it off, and plugged it in, I decided to get back in to look at a few other things on the touch screen. I pressed the radio on/off button to see if I could just turn on the nav screen, at some point between that and hitting the start button while plugged in the error occurred. If any one can help I’d be great full, I’m so upset about this, I traded in a problematic 2016 Tesla Model X for this car, and I now appear to be back where I started ?.

I don’t suppose you will gain any comfort in knowing this seems to be an increasingly common problem. ?

On the European I-Pace Forums, where there a very large number on the road, it is being reported a lot. It appears the only fix is to have the dealer reinstall the software...

Well at least I’m not the only one. I had such a bad time with my Tesla’s software, and mechanical issues now this, it only has 37 miles on it....

Sounds like strange is now the new norm.

But I hope not.:frown2:

If there is anything plugged into a USB port, unplug it.
Put in Park, push ON/OFF button, get out, plug in the car and lock it.
Come out later, hit unlock, and remove the charge cord.
Open door, sit, hold brake down, press ON/OFF for 1 full second (watch a clock) min.
If the Jaguar screen comes up on the center stack display, touch the screen.
The center should be at Home (three boxes). Press the NAV bar. Wait for the GPS signal to fully lock on. Be patient, sometimes it's fast, sometimes it's slow.
The street map will come up when it locks.

Sometimes this goes fast, sometimes not, but a little patience pays off in stability. I have a hunch the Jaguar boots it's OS really slow sometimes.

@Meldev##44, it’s touch screens, and all the software driven items attached to them. I also own a BMW i3 BEV, I’ve had it for four years, and nothing has gone wrong with it, it also has all physical controls.....

And, while I'm doing this, what do I need to be wearing? And, which animals are best to sacrifice?

Yeah, a bit wordy, but I used to write tech docs. :wink2:

Basically, you need the car go completely off with no secondary computers trying to talk to it via USB. Seems Full Charge 100% helps clear it's memory of crap.
Then be aware that sometimes it boots instantly and sometimes it does not. I blame the infotainment and Nav. Why? I can hop in and blast off instantly, every time. But the displays might not work that trip.
Waiting until it fully boots works for me. If I don't care about the infotainment/NAV, I just hop in and blast off. If I care? I leave when the boot is complete.

@McRat, tried it, didn’t work.
Sorry to hear that. Just offering what I've found out.

I've had the blacked out center consoles. Bad USB stick caused it.
Had a "Traction Battery Warning". Full charge fixed it.
Had NAV not functioning. Waiting for full boot fixed it.
Had the temp knobs read in °C instead of °F. That happens at random.

Yup, take it in and have them reboot and reset it.

I had a Fisker Karma. It was much better if you acted slowly while going through the start up procedure and let it fully boot the way it wants to without trying to interrupt it early. I used to let it fully paint the dials on the screens before I pressed Start. Then, let it fully go through the Start cycle before trying to shift into D. If you "rushed it", it might work - or it might do something annoying. And, sometimes that "annoying thing" required to unplug the main power connector from the car to get it to start from scratch again.

Gotta assume that I-Pace might have some similar issues.

I too traded a problematic 2016 Tesla MX. I'm having some minor issues as well, not the one with the radio, but anything that comes up makes me jumpy a bit because of the **** I went through with my MX. I actually went through two of them as the first was bought back by Tesla.

Hi again, well last Monday my Jaguar dealer rebooted my I-Pace, gave it the once over, and it has managed to behave itself ever since (fingers crossed). It really is a fantastic car, it feels like they combined the F-Type, and F-Pace in the best looking crossover design out there. Today looking through the menu on the Nav screen I looked at the software updates in settings, it has an on/off button so I turned it on, no new updates appeared, but it did check, and I imagine it can now notify me when updates become available. ?
