Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2011 vivaro sportive, I wanted it with the tomtom sat nav system fitted but this was not available at the time so the dealer retro fitted another make of sat nav ,stereo system. I was told the steering wheel multi function stork woukld not work with the new system, however 2 years down the line I have now decided to fit my own clock and temp display on blanking plate below sat nav system. upon taking out the plastic blanking plate I discovered the original (orange) clock and temp display stuffed behind the blanking plate (very annoyed). however I now want to use this and fit it (very awkward fit) where the blanking plate is, the problem is I cant set the time on it. however many different ways I try nothing affects the clock which flashes constantly. I have tried the multifunction stork, and the button on the end of the wiper controls. Is there any way I can set the clock.

SOURCE: Steering wheel lamps do not work (radio controls, temp, cruise)

The lights on the steering wheel are in the switches. To fix the lights, the whole switch needs to be replaced. Same thing goes for the Tempature Controls and radio. Overall, I think it would be very expensive to replace all of the switches to get the lights working. I have the same vehicle, and almost all of the lights are out.

I think the lights behind the gage controls are replaceable, although you still have to rip out most of the dash to get to them.

I have the auto-sense wipers, so I was leaving the wipers on all the time, and the would only work when needed. The bad part I finally found out about this was that while the wiper switch is on (even though they were not wiping), it caused all of the dash lights, switch lights and rear parking light to be on. I think this alone significantly cut down on the life of the bulb.

For now, I am just living without the lights. The temperature control is very expensive (just the part alone).

SOURCE: why can't i use my steering wheel controls?

Most likely the reason behind that is your new cd player will not support that function. Your original cd player built for your car was engineered to mesh perfectly with all the buttons in your car and when you install an aftermarket radio into your car it just isn't capable of controlling all the features(steering wheel controls) that the original was built for.

You may be able to find an aftermarket cd player for suited for your car with the capabilities that you desire.

Good luck,

Can I fit sat nav unit with reversing camera from 2012 prius into 2010 prius (the 2010 one had no sat nav from factory just ordinary cd unit, but the dash is same and dimensions are same


The 2010 car would probably not have the necessary wiring to make the 2012 system work. It would probably physically fit the car, buy would still need the camera and the wiring to connect the two.

Where can I find a sat nav manual for a 2006 Bentley flying spur the traffic reports have ceased working.


Don't even bother, it's a CD based system with no updates available. It was outdated when they used it. You can try a VW dealer. It's the same system as the expensive VW had.

What type of refrig. does the AC use in a 92 dodge caravan


Unless the labels are missing from the car, it will state which type of refrigerant is used. Could be either R12 or R134a. If originally R12, it could have been replaced by R134a with an upgrade kit. The easiest way to tell if the labels are missing, is to look at the valves on the AC system. If they are Schrader valves (same as used on tires), then it is the older R12. If the caps are Red (high pressure side) and blue (low pressure side), then it is R134a. The sale of R12 to non-certified mechanics is illegal in all states as far as I am aware. R134a is available in most states and retro-fit kits are available in most states.

I have done the retro-fit on 2 vehicles with acceptable results. It is recommended to remove all the old R12 with a vacuum pump. Autozone (in my area anyway) rents these.

Good luck if you need and decide to retro-fit yourself.

Where can i find a manual for the PCM Sat Nav on a Porsche (996)


If you don't have a Porsche dealer near you, check eBay for a Nav manual. Your car should have come with one though. Good luck!

6 CD Multichanger


Hello There.

My guess would be that your sat nav was retro fitted, i'e not factory fitted. Who ever fitted it didn't use the correct wiring harness. It seems they may have used a wiring harness which didn't have the connection for a CD changer.

If you want to get this fixed you will need to replace the wiring harness which means stripping out the entire interior of your car, i.e seats, carpet, door panel. or you can live with the single CD which works.

If my answer has solved your problem, please rate me on fixya.

Thank you
