Check for a scratched or dirty Navi DVD disc. Clean or have the scratches polish out at your local game store. Video game stores usually have a disc repair machine that polishes out scratches.
Note: In some cases the Navi unit can cause rotational scratches on the DVD. If this is the case than the Navi unit will have to be replaced.
on the navi unit its self which i think is in the trunk there is a serial number on it..bring that number to any acura dealership and they should be able to find the navi code for you..this goes for all acura's with navi.
I had posted the similar problem with my 2002 Navi. It turned out to be a bad DVD/base unit. Unfortunately, just about all of the advice posted here was incorrect. The DVD unit is basically a complete computer and it sends raw video signals to the display unit just like a PC sends video to an LCD display; when the computer dies or is off, the display goes blank. So, any problems with sluggish or unusual behavior indicates the base unit is going bad. In my case, it was so dead that it couldn't event eject the DVD - I had to literally take the DVD drive apart to get my disc out. I bought a used Navi DVD base unit online from "acurahondatech" on eBay. This guy was great; he helped me diagnose the problem and found the right unit to work with my model MDX. I highly recommend him.
hello . ok first try disconecting the nave unit on the trunk if the radio comes up and the buttons work you have a bad nave unit (very common ) . other option look for radio fuse in glove box top open white tabs on top diconect the fuse and reconnect to see if it will restart the radio pannel if not replace the radio pannel .
True. It is in the trunk under the plastic carpet. You need to remove the bolts from the navi dvd and flip it over. Write down the serial number and go back to the dealer. Show registration of car and have car with you. On 2005 and up cars with navi the tech can go to a secret tech screen and get the serial number.
When your NAVI system comes up, press ok and then the 1, 2 and 4 buttons from the top. Do this in order and hold each button until all three buttons are held down. After 5 seconds this will take you into a diagnostic mode. I'm not sure which menu it is (I think it is the ECU diagnostic), but there is a menu where you can force a download to your old dvd.
