I know that this issue has been addressed before, however, there was no clear indication as to the correct procedure on how to change the main battery of the 04 RR without having an impact on the other electrical systems and the 2nd battery under the driver's seat.
Is there a correct protocol that would preclude these problems?
Thanks for your input
Cheers
Lou

There isn't suppose to be a second battery under the passenger's seat.

Was it installed as part of an audio upgrade, or as a dual battery setup?

Either way, disconnect it, then disconnect your main battery. I would suggest disconnecting the ground on the first, to help prevent from shorting something out with a live positive wire under a seat.

According to Land Rover Service Specialist there is a 2nd battery under the driver's seat that takes care of the electronics inside the vehicle. With that said, I was give a 2nd set of instructions yesterday that before disconnecting the main battery you can use a battery pack connected to the terminals to preclude total loss of power and having to enter new codes for radio etc. This will maintain all systems powered. It seems sensible to me and easy enough to do. Both my batteries are brand new. Tks for your input.

No, no, no!

You run a greater risk by powering the vehicle with a jump pack or such.

RTFM and you'll be fine.

IIRC, remove key, close doors, allow vehicle to sit for 30 seconds or so to allow the electronics to go to sleep, then swap the battery. The instructions are even printed near the battery on a yellow sticker.

I am so sorry, but I am not familiar with "RTFM" and "IIRC" what doe s this mean? By the way I have not had the need to change the battery, I just needed to know how to do it correctly.
Tks
Lou
