Question about Ford F-150

Open Question

Navigation System upgrade

I have a 09 Ford F150 with sync. I am wanting to upgrade my 6 disc CD player to an OEM factory NAV system. I bought the bezel and head unit and it seems straight forward with the plug-ins. However I have found adapter kits that are aftermarket which are supposedly needed to integrate such an upgrade. Also I am needing the GPS antenna. From exploded diagrams I have seen, it looks like Ford uses aerial antennas via lengthy wiring harnesses leading to the exterior top of the body. I had seen aftermarket antennas that plug into the back and magnetize to the unit itself, tucked into the dash. My question is can I successfully get the NAV system working without costly integration kits, and can I use an aftermarket GPS antenna? Perhaps Ford has a GPS antenna I don't know about.

SOURCE: FM/AM reception problem

It should- that splitter is generally used for factory telephone reception and also there is an antenna located in the rear window glass. It will work for radio reception but it will interfer with your phone if you have a phone installed. just make sure you have a good antenna ground. Try removing the grond and sanding the metal so that there is no paint or oxidation that causes higher resistance. This generally affects a.m. reception.

I have a 2004 Acura RL, navigation screen reads "check nav disc". How do I fix?


Your Navigation disc usually is in the CD player. Most require the First Disc to be the Navigation disc. Now if this disc was removed or if someone changed the position of #1 disc and inserted something else, then that is why you have your message.

It is also possible that removing the Battery from the car may cause it to lose the programming in the Navigation. It may simply need the Navigation disc to be reread.

Latest nav disc


Hello, be prepared to gasp. We know of factory updates costing $350 for Lincolns and accordingly cheaper for lesser Ford products. But is the Alpine a brand of stereo with Navigation or a car Model?

You can probably do an internet search under the topic "Navigation system updates" and plug in whether it is a car or stereo company.

I want to bypass my 99 ford f150 alarm system


If you are talking about the PATS system, no way to do it. There is no factory alarm from Ford, if it is a Ford OEM system, it was added at the dealer. The 97 & 98 has a factory alarm system, but this was deleted after the introduction of PATS in 1999.

You could try a Salvage yard if you know what it looks like. Then I would think the Dealer may have a harness and experience with Ford radios. Radio Shack maybe, then last would be a Stereo shop but you need to know if they are a good installer. You would not want electrical problems after they work on it.

A8 2004 Navigation system not active


NAV unit uses a DVD disc. If its a copy, it may or may not work. I suggest you remove the NAV disc, unplug the NAV unit from power for 4-5 minutes, reconnect the NAV and try inserting the disc again to see if it reads. If it still does not read, another NAV disc needs to be inserted to verify its not a "bad" NAV DVD disc issue. If it still cannot read the second disc, the NAV unit is bad. The handbook feature needs the disc inserted in the slot 1 of the CD changer unit.

Can't get navigation and cd player to work


You can purchase the manual from the dealer. You need the disc for the nav system to program it. Another is you may need to have a code to operate the nav. Did you press the mode button to go from radio to cd? Try to detach the negative battery or press the reset button to factory default, this will bring you back to the factory settings. It looks like a small hole on the radio face. You must use a fine point to push it in and reset it. Is a cd stuck inside of the cd slot? Do all your trouble shooting first and you will find your answer......runjoe
