Question about 2006 Infiniti QX56

1 Answer

Navigation screen/stereo controls don't work

I have a 2006 QX56 and when I got in my car this afternoon while running errands the navigation screen wouldn't light up and none of the functions associated with it, like the stereo would work either. The radio is playing the station I was listening to earlier, but the volume is low and I am unable to make it louder or even turn it off. This car has been a pain, but normally turning the car off and on 'resets' things. That, however, isn't doing the trick this time. Are you aware of a way I could reset that system? It worked fine this morning and nothing unusual happened! Any help would be appreciated - I'd really rather not go into the dealer if I don't have to! Julie G

Just from word of mouth I don't know how true this is however, I have heard that alot of European cars are voltage sensitive and all you may need is a new battery. Sounds like when the car runs the alternator will charge the battery giving you correct voltage. This may also be why its periodic due to the alternating temperatures from morning to afternoon etc, the older the battery the harder it gets to maintain amps at start up. Ya never know ifya havent tryed it.

Did you ever find a solution for the QX56 nav screen? Mine is doing the same, I have been told it is navigation unit or possibly the screen. Was wondering if you had any luck before I pay money for something that doesnt fix the problem. Thanks
