I have fixed the problem, not 100% sure how. We had moved the steering wheel so put it back to its usual position. The red light on the centre of the radio unit that flashes was not on. Later when I locked the car and re-opened it the red light flashed and the radio / sat nave came back on.

We may be able to help with this but need more information. Each radio has its own individual security code. There is no blanket code that covers Freelanders for example.
You will need to supply the serial number and part number of the radio itself so we can identify what radio you have. This will involve removing the radio from the dash to find the serial number which is on a label at the back or stamped into the metal casing of the radio itself.
Post this information up and we can advise from there.
the satnav/radio has to be ON for 3 hours without any action. I am not sure, if it has to be 3 hours consequently, so 3 hours the engine and satnav on, or it could be for example 6 halfhours, I dont rememmber, but I had this exact problem with 2005 audi allroad. The safe characters will change after 3 hours to rotating numbers and you will be able to enter the code. DOnt bother to go to the service station, all they can do is also wait or completely reset the unit, which is very pricey, because they have to remove the backpanel.. Be patient, dont touch the satnav let it on, its really a long timespan but it works.
The radio is faulty due to water coming out of the air vents due to condensation.See if a radio shop can repair the radio otherwise you need to replace this.Check the pollen filter in the footwell and change if it's dirty.
I had this problem on my wife's 2001 Freelander and it ended up being a loose battery terminal. There was plenty of electricity to run lights, radio and so forth. When the starter solenoid kicked in you could hear it click, but the loose terminal couldn't carry enough power to turn the starter motor. Battery was fine in all respects and when I tightened the terminal, everything worked like it's supposed to.
