My 2005 Honda pilot navigation system is broken - it won't even come on at all. Any thoughts on what the problems might be?
I have a few thoughts, but they may not be worth much: it's a pretty involved system.
You might check fuse number 11 (10A) in the passenger's side fuse box. I think it shares the navi system with the interior light (of course, if you interior light is working, that tends to suggest that there is nothing wrong with the fuse, not I'd check it anyway).
You might take a look at the Control Unit (under the passenger's seat) and see if the DVD (the database for the system) is okay. To remove it, you have to turn the ignition switch to the ON II position, then pull the door on the control unit open and push the eject button. The DVD will automatically come out. You can then check it for dirt or such, maybe clean it, and slide it back into the slot (it gets pulled in automatically). Make sure the label is up when you do that. And make sure to close the door. I would think that if the DVD does NOT come out when you push the eject button, the unit is not getting power for some reason.
Sorry that's all the help (if any) I can be on this.
