Question about 2006 Acura RL Sedan

1 Answer

Navigation system and Acuralink

When I start the car the nav system starts up and gives the proper location on the map. When I start driving the map lags way behind or doesn't move. I can be 50 miles away and it still shows the general area where I started (although it does move a little, just not accurately. Also, the Acuralink system will not sync through my phone. I just bought the car used a couple of weeks ago and am trying to find out if I need a new nav system or if this can be fixed.

It sounds like your antenna is shielded. Some windshields have a tinting made with copper or other metals in them. Perhaps the windshield is blocking the signal.

SOURCE: No power of any kind after tried to jump-start engine

No power at all check battery cabes and connection, check main power fuses with a meter. break may not be appearent. Think back you didnt by chance hook up cables backwards did you, important to know. all power goes through the main fuse block under the hood start there.

SOURCE: 2004 Acrura MDX navigation system goes blank after disclosure.

I had the same problem and carefully cleaning the map DVD solved it. After years of use, a film gets built up on it. It is under the front passenger seat.

SOURCE: My '92 Integra cranks but does not start

i have this problem on a regular basis with my 91.

it happens in hot weather, and sometimes after having to start and stop the car several times quickly(like going ot different stores over and over) again, in warmer weather, like 25 C+.

my problem though.

i start the car, it turns over and within the second it started it revs back down and cuts out.

then, when i put the keys back in, and to the second position just before cranking, my lights are on, and i get the s3 blinking, (which indicates a transmission malfunction, DO NOT START YOUR CAR OR DRIVE IT WHEN THIS LIGHT BLINKS, this is a transmission problem, but it is electronic, and runs your tranny really hard)

i would take the keys out, go read the paper for a few minutes or something, come back, put the keys in, and as long as that s3 light isnt blinking, the car starts fine.

the issue relating to gas would make sense, because if the engine doesnt get enough fuel it, well, shuts off. i have had injector issues before,(while applying gas nothing happens for a second) so i started using fuel injector cleaner every 4th or so fill-up.i have seen some better results, in driving as well.

try this, along with hitting your gas tank. BUT, hit your tank at your discretion, you dont want to accidentally cause damage, like maybe shake some electronics loose, which would cause even more problems

You have a defective NAV system, pull it out and send it in for repair or.... Just use your cell phone's Google maps app for navigation, it is far better then any car nav system.

XL7 not XL-7 (the dash matters big time)
i'll guess its a dash.7
REDUX
in your post you said fuses are good (tested too)
have you checked and reseated the connectors on the OBJECTS that fail>?? (that is free to do)

we now learn many things fail on car,
even HEAD LIGHTS?????
and no statement of what works. in total!
does car drive perfect night and day?????
just a clue here, and win big. huh>?

I can't drive your car and see all those many things failing,& that are. ok .. and what does not fail....

but this car has CAN-bus (or the like)
a NETWORK for sure, and bus structured.

and does not work like some 1990 Vitara.
at all, not even close to same. (forget them...)
it's a BUS system.
each switch you throw sends a command on the bus.
it's failing I bet because of communication errors
that you fail to see because you did not use a real scan tool at the time of failure.
it must be scanned while failing !

cant fix it if its not broke,...(unless you drive
scan and log data. like i do all the time for all intermittent of any kind....)



does it fail engine running?
is running battery voltage at 13.3 to 15vdc
if voltage is low all computers in car will go nuts. (same with your cell phone)
this is a fact and what i check first?
valid battery voltages first.
2nd after fuses, (done already)
then scan it. using a real scan tool
not some relic.
a real tool can see all CAN buss errors
U codes top the list.

P1,p2, p3 and B codes too.... all seen.
failing.

you can buy tools
rent tools
or get the car scanned failing at any ASE shop.
car parts store may have junky or relic tools.
(i can name 10 that are)
some tools only do old federal P0xxx codes. say some old 1996 tool.

try a real shop and win. really

Navigation


Do you have a solid state drive on the Nav system or do you have a hard drive that you actually load the maps from a cd into? If you load your maps from an actual cd then then I'd be checking that drive. The armature may have failed.

Your radio/nav system needs a code. Go the your dealer's parts department , give them the VIN of your car( should be free $0). Punch in the code through the car radio and your radio/nav system should work right away.

Nav system


Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
