    I also have the same problem. Was hoping someone could help. Took it to the dealer only to have them "diagnose" the problem and tell me that the entire system needs to be replaced for $4500! It does work, I've noticed that it does it when it gets hot. Was hoping to, maybe, just have some fan replaced. Please help

    We have the same problem. I am going to take it to the dealer today. Even when you enter the code, the navigation will flash on, work fine then blink out and freeze up.

    I have the same problem and the dealer said the only thing to do is to replace the whole thing for $4600. I called American Honda and they suggest the dealer call Honda tech line and if that doesn't work then call the satellite technical center in Chino, CA

    I have similar problem with the navigation unit of my 2004, Honda accord V6, Every time I start the car, the unit works or tries to work for few minutes and then gradually freezes and tries to reboot. The dealer was not of any use except he charged me $100 and asked to replace the whole thing for $5K.

    I will love to hear if any one has resolved this problem

    I have the same problem - 4 days now. Someone told me to take power from it by unhooking the battery. Can't seem to remember to do that when I get home from work. Has anyone tried that?

    I have the same problem on 2004 Accord V4. It is intermittent, but since I dont use it too often, intermittent seems to be when I really need it! I am very disappointed in the amount of money I paid for it, for it to be so out of date from day one--streets that had been there for a few years weren't on it, etc. but the rebooting drives me nuts! Was afraid to remove DVD and restart it.. I will try that since I haven't done that so far. Hopefully eventually someone will have an answer... Jodi

    I saw someone mention tripping the connectors taped to the wires behind the rom in the trunk, worked for a little while. Has any tried doing a system reboot at the stealership. They said they can reboot the whole cars software, but I don't want to shell $100 for something I don't know will work.

Unplugging or rebooting won't solve the problem. Call Alpine Electronics. They are the manufacturer of the Navi System. They will replace it for about $160. Check their website online for their phone number.

I bought a honda accord 2009,but the screen for the navigation says Navigation unit door opened or no dvd disk installed. I am considering buying a navigation disk but I dont know if it would work.


The dealer normally will update your system. Also look for a reset button at top of system. I have had an issue with mine and that fixed it.

How to reset the transponder honda pilot?


I presume you want to initialize or"sync" up your navigation
system to the satellite. You will need the 4 digit navigation
code and the 5 digit audio code. Make sure your vehicle is
parked out in the open where there are no trees over it. Turn it
on and the nav screen should be asking for 4 digit code.That
is the navigation code.If entered correctly the display should change to the disclaimer screen. For the radio to work turn
that on and you should see in the space where the station
frequency appears,the words ENTER CODE.When the 5 digit
radio code is entered correctly the radio should start working.
I hope this helps as it is as short as I can make it. If you don't
have those codes then you will have to get them from a Honda
dealer. Good luck

How to fix a nvgation handa acored 2004 when say pleas cheake the disk


The navigation system will want reprogramming to your area. To do this you will need a disk and to locate where the reader is, normally found in the glove compartment. Your local Honda dealership should have the disk or be able to find one. insert and all should be good.

Acura navigation code

so get one. never drive a car and for sure this hightech ones.
with no opr, guide. it has lots of very important facts for getting out
of trouble, and #1 is standardized. (IMMO failures? ouch)

the cars that have radio codes, and i presume nav unit.
the car came new with the code cars,
PO (previous owner ) lost it.
the guide says, write it down in the opr guide. i bet he didnt.
so the bad news. its here.
but good news its here (mostly....)

rats, the navigator system pages are missing.

Replaced battery and navigationn propt me to put a code. inputed the code and it shut off.


If you replaced your battery, you probably lost your audio system code as well. You should put that in first or your navigation system voice will not work. I assume you have the code for your audio system.
After you get your audio system working then you should be able to put the code in for you navigation system as follows:
Enter the four-digit navigation system security code, then select Done. If you have entered it correctly, the display changes to the Disclaimer screen. You have ten chances to enter the correct code. If all ten are incorrect, turn the ignition to OFF, then back to ON (II) to have ten more chances to enter the correct code (I would try this is your unit has turned off and doesn't come back on).
If you have other questions on this, leave a comment and I will investigate further.
Hope this helps you.

I just misplaced the Navigation System Code for my Honda Accord 2004 with Vehicle Identification Number IHGCM66844A090143. I will appreciate if you can assist me to get the navigation system code back so...


you may be able to contact the original selling dealer they should have it on file, also if you still have your maitenence journal it might be in there. the worst case would be taking it to the dealer and having them remove the unit and getting the serial number off of it so they can get the code for you

2004 Honda Accord touch screen will not accept code numbers


DOES SYSTEM INTAKE CODE YOU TYPE AND RETURN WITH ERROR MESSAGE OR JUST PLAIN HAS LOCKED SCREEN? SYSTEM IS DESIGNED SO THAT IF INCORRECT CODE IS INPUT MORE THAN THREE TIMES SYTEM LOCKS ITSELF.WHICH REQUIRES THAN THE NAVI UNIT BE UNPLUGGED FROM BATTERY POWER FOR ABOUT 5-10 MINS TO RESET ITSELF.NOW INCORRECT CODE CAN BE DUE TO WRONG CODE/SERIAL # CARD FOR VEHICLE, UNIT HAS BEEN REPLACED IN PAST POSSIBLY AND YOU ARE INPUTING CODE FROM OLD UNIT UNKNOWINGLY. YOU ALSO WANT TO MAKE SURE CODE YOU ARE TRYING TO INPUT IS FOR NAVI-SYSTEM AND NOT THE RADIO CODE FOR THE STEREO. IF ALL ABOVE CHECKS OK THEN NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO REMOVE UNIT TO RETRIEVE SERIAL NUMBER FROM BACK OF NAVI UNIT THEN GO TO NEAREST DEALARSHIP WHO CAN THAN RUN S/N THROUGH HONDA IN SYSTEM AND RETRIEVE CORRECT CODE FOR THAN SERIAL NUMBER. LET ME KNOW HOW IT GO'S
