So my 07' LR3 HSE started unlocking the doors while driving and displaying this on the radio screen. I decided to replace the battery since it was 5 years old and when tested it was weak. I also replaced the brake light switch. Thought the problem was solved because it was fine for a few days and then while driving today it did the same thing. Any suggestions?

If it was fine for few days with a new battery you should check the charging cos if it's low for some reason but not completely gone it can weaken the battery in no time...if you have a multimeter measure voltage directly on the battery with engine running, it should be very close to 14V if everything is OK, i've seen this fault on a friend's D3 and the alternator's regulator was fubar and didnt charge enough

Well, you're right there. I would agree with you. It will greatly affect the battery. It's better to measure voltage directly on the battery on the battery in order to determine if it's right

Update: I purchased a used cluster from eBay. It was a 05'-06' cluster even though mine is a 07'. I purchased the fast lane service from GAP and installed the cluster using my IIDTool without any problems. The only thing is you need to purchase a cluster with lower mileage than your current one as they can only increase the mileage and not lower it when flashing the cluster. It's been installed about a week now and it seems to have solved my problems. I'll report back if anything changes.
