Hi, sounds like it could be a battery problem. Try a search, a few people have seen this.

PS. It's worth updating your profile with your Evoque year and spec to help with answers :)

Common issue, it's widely said that it's the back up battery within the sos module that's failed, had it on ours and the dealer carried out a software update and said it would cure it, I wasn't convinced but a year later so far so good

Yes, I have this warning come up sporadically over the past 2 years, then it goes away for many months.

There has been quite a bit of correspondence on this on this forum a while back - worth searching for.

Was it expensive to get checked out?

FOC in our case, the lithium battery is rated for 10 years as its doesn't do a lot being a back up battery, most reported cases are on cars around MY16 so about 4 years old, LR are aware of the issue despite what they tell you

Thankyou so much. I only bought the car Sunday. So in a bit of a panic mode. I bought from a specialist dealer not Land Rover direct. It’s a prestige lux model 2014 with all the gadgets so I will be gutted if I start getting problems already.

If you've only just got it then then it should be fixed under warranty from where you bought from, if they need to take it to a main dealer thats their problem so should be FOC as far as your concerned

This bloke is currently having the same problem - with 45,000 YouTube spectators!!
Here is the video with the attempted Evoque repair sandwiched between his other projects - nothing seems easy with our beloved chariots :unsure:
