Think you have a aerial problem somewhere along the line so the set is not getting a signal that it can use to locate your GPS position ,although i dont find this a problem i just stop and ask directions but if you have paid for all this fancy gear then you expect it to work and work well .Try checking the aerial connections with a multimeter for any breaks or bad connections

Where can I buy onstar fmv to installin my 2013 mkx lincoln


Hello Sandra Eldridge,

Your title says what kit you prefer... From what little I know about OnStar... "OnStar FMV" appears to be the (SMART) MIRROR
approach... My best recommendation would be to get YOUR
"FMV" from CRUTCHFIELD (see below)...

"PAIN-LESS AND WELL DONE"

I checked ontar.com and your car IS ON-STAR capable...

Sadly I always make things more complex than they need to be:
I don't think the LINCOLN "sound system" is inferior in ANY WAY... and think there has got to be a better solution than by-passing an already REALLY EXCELLENT human interface...
for a "SMART MIRROR" (FMV)... So BEFORE you choose THAT SOLUTION... I would ask you to find out WHAT SERVICES
are presently in your existing MIRROR.

CRUTTHFIELD technicians can do that for you... Phone them... Talk to them...

ELSE take it to your LINCOLN DEALER and ask what service THEY COULD equip in a new car... BECAUSE I can't park without my CAMERAS any more

(just kidding... never scuffed a tire!!).

Years ago CRUTCHFIELD offered a 3-SIXTY-3 solution for my NAVIGATOR... radio navigation system to integrate BLUETOOTH.
I was QUITE DELIGHTED to deal with their technical staff

I have felt the EXTRA SECURITY of knowing the VEHICLE is being tracked... (watched over)... and felt quite secure

I think onstar is a much safer choice than fumbling with your cell-phone trying to use siri while driving.

Hope it all works out well...

Sorry to pose another question while I'm supposed to be offering a solution.

HOW CAN I CHANGE MY BLUETOOTH LANGUAGE FROM SPANISH MODE TO ENGLISH ON MY 2010 CHEVY 1500


I tried to follow the directions in the owners manual. It didn't work. So I called GM. I was told I would have to go to Onstar. Onstar said they could change my bluetooth from Spanish to English, but I would have to subscribe to Onstar.

How do unlock the door on a chevy pick uo truck


  • Use the key. Insert the ignition key into the lock on the driver's side and turn the key counterclockwise until you hear a thump. Return the key to its original position and remove it from the lock.
  • 2 Use the remote control for keyless entry. Unlock the doors with the remote control on your key fob. Press the button with the picture of an open lock once to unlock only the driver's-side door and twice to unlock all the doors.
  • 3 Call OnStar. OnStar can unlock your car remotely regardless of your location. You must have an active subscription to OnStar and your personal identification number (PIN) to unlock your Silverado this way. OnStar is free for one year on all new GM vehicles, but you must pay a monthly fee after the subscription expires if you wish to keep the service active.
  • 4 Call a locksmith. A locksmith can unlock your Silverado if you do not have your key.
  • 5 Break a window. As a last resort, you can break one of your truck's windows and unlock your door from the inside. This will probably set off your Silverado's alarm. If you find your key inside the truck, put it in the ignition immediately after unlocking your door and turn the starter to the "On" position to deactivate the alarm.

I have installed the latest version of the Sensis GPS in my 2003 XJ8. It gives me wildly inaccurate directions at times. Sensis has told me that the fault lies with the nav system in the car not with their...


Have you calibrated the nav system - this action should be available in the nav menu. you need to move your position marker to where you actually are on the indicated map screen otherwise you could get instructions to turn left etc at wildly different points.

How can i find my car from my home computer using onstar


I believe you will have to call onstar and request the location information. They will be able to tell you the address or general location of the vehicle.
I am unaware of any other means to track the vehicle unless you report it stolen.
Good luck.

Turning off the OnStar in a 2005 TrailBlazer


The OnStar module is under the rear seat, passenger side. You should be able to just pull the connectors out of the module. Just the rectangular ones.

The dealer is thinking about the power amplifier for the Bose radio system. That's in the fender at the right rear of the car, but that's not the issue here.
