Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Navigation I have a 2006 Dodge Ram sport lariat with the REC radio. It has the AM/FM with navigation and satellite radio. Since I purchased this truck two days ago the DVD navigation disc provided by the dealer does not work. I am getting an error message, "Disk Error - can not read" However if I load the disc into my computer I can see all the files on the disc. I have seen various websites with the same question posed by many people and have never seen the solution. PLEASE HELP

I am just guessing, but it sounds like whoever traded the car in might have given you a disc that wasn't for your particular vehicle??? I ordered a disc online, thinking I had the right one... and it read Disc Error as well when inserted. However, when I got the part# right, the new disc worked like a charm.

Also, when I bought my Charger... the dealership told me that it is not uncommon for the former owner to switch out discs before they trade the car in. I would call your dealer and read the number off the disc to them... so that they can check it to be sure that it is one that should be compatible with your year/make/model before I went any further.

2005 Mercury Mountaineer with DVD Entertainment System that will not read disk


The data on the DVD map disc ages at a rate of 15-20% per year. As the data ages, the functionality of the navigation system declines. Offering GM customers new navigation DVDs will ensure that the customers have the latest information for their system.

General Motors offered a Navigation Disc Update Program for alot model year vehicles. This program concluded on December 31, 2009. The DVD Navigation Update Program policy has changed and customers are no longer eligible for free annual updates, however, a navigation DVD update disc can be purchased for $199 (USD) + shipping.

If the navigation disc is needed for a warranty situation, the disc can be purchased for $120 (USD). The dealer must provide a VIN and RO# XXXXX qualify for the reduced price. The dealer must call the GM Navigation Disc Center, as this option is not available on the website.

The GM Navigation Disc Center launched on March 15, 2006. There are two ways to obtain an updated disc:
* Via the web through gmnavdisc.com
* GM Navigation Disc Center 1-877-628-3472

Technical Service Bulletins are sometimes generated to address specific navigation radio operational or performance issues. When a navigation radio bulletin is issued, it may contain instructions to utilize an advanced vehicle navigation (AVN) software update with a specific part number. GM dealers must order advanced vehicle navigation (AVN) software update discs as directed in the specific bulletin.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I am getting Power (fuses ok) to my Radio and Navigation on my 2006 Sienna but the power button will not work so no sound or Navigation screen? What could be wrong? Thanks


Check to make sure all fuse associate to the radio/navigation is good, sometime like the acc socket fuse being blown could cause the thing to not work also, so make sure you get to all the fuse to make sure they are not blown. After that, there maybe a fuse located with the navigation unit behind the radio/navigation unit that may be blown. If there isn't or is still good, check all connection to it. If all is good then your unit could be history and you may need to take it to a dealship to actaully see what is going on.

I have a 2006 Yukon xl Denali with the Bose radio/ Navigation and separate 6 disc cd changer. The am/fm radio works fine, but when using XM, the channels get stuck and have to be turned manually.


generally it would just need to be reset... unhook the battery for about ten minutes and hook it back up. make sure you have the unlock code for the radio FIRST and you know how to enter it.

Time clock change on dodge ram navigation radio


Press "NAV" to go to the main navigation menu.

Scroll down and select "System Settings"

Scroll down and select "Clock Setting"

Make sure "Show GPS Clock" is selected with a red check in the box.

I had to switch "Daylight Savings" from "ON" to "OFF" in order to bring the time back an hour. I assume that I'll just have to switch it back to "ON" in the Spring in order to move the time forward and hour.
