2007 Nissan Armada radio display

My problem is that when you start the 07 Nissan Armada, only four of the 14 characters appear. As suggest by one of you techs, press the DVD button before shutting the vehicle down and the next time you start the vehicle, all of the characters will appear. I have had the display replace 3 times, the XM unit once and the main head once. Nothing changes it's operation.

I have suggest to Nissan that they replace the entire unit with the upgraded navigation unit. That has a different display head and I haven't heard of any complaints on the unit.

So far Nissan hasn't came up with an acceptable solution or explanation. So, it is time to try plan B.

The present radio I have has AM/FM/XM/ 6 CD changer and the DVD equipment.

It is possible to change the existing unit for the upgraded nav unit while maintaining everything that I already have.

Is the wiring there for the upgrade? Can they use the existing head unit and just changing out the display unit?

If the head unit, display unit and the nav unit added, will the 6CD changer and teh DVD unit still work? Or does the whole system have to be changed out?

You're not going to like my answer.

This is a known issue with the Nissan Factory Installed XM radio. Well, known by their upper tier techs at least. And they have no fix for it. It's a defect in the firmware programming. There is a work around. Always have it set to CD when you turn your car on. Some owners have reported that, if it's set to CD first, and then switched to XM after the car is running, it continues to display 16 characters.

I know that's a pain in the neck, but it seems to be the closest thing to a solution there is, short of replacing the whole unit with a different model.

SOURCE: CD changer output not working

There is an obscure setting for 'AUX' on/off that is hard to find unless you know what you're doing or looked in the manual. Typical Pioneer for ya.

How do you reset the computer nissan armada

You don't

Your asking how do you clear the Malfunction
Lamp on the dash?

If you clear it before you diagnose & repair the reason
it came on,then your loose all the data you need to
start the diagnostic part

If you think you will fix it by having the light go out ,your wrong

I would suggest a code reader verse disconnecting the battery,
so you don't risk loosing this you need working,like the radio,
windows etc.

Each vehicle is different you need to know you vehicles stratagies

No radio code for renault clio, the model is 07 clio monaco

There should be a 14 character Serial Number beginning with RG or RN or PH or similar (often found stamped in the metal casing )  and maybe a Security Number in the format of TOA123 or TA123 or just A123 at the end of a barcode so please quote EVERYTHING you can find

07 h3 navigation

It is actually located behind the navigation screen.

Turn off the radio.
Press and hold the CD eject button until the display unlocks (about 10 to 15 seconds).
Let screen move outward and rotate downward.
Press the DVD eject button just exposed behind the display.
Remove DVD, insert new one.
Rotate display upwards and press gently on all four corners to slide and lock display back into original position.
Turn on radio, navigation DVD should start update process, let it finish.

You will need to ask the dealer to replace the display again I'm afraid. I had a friend that had a similar problem with their Nissan. They had problems with display and the CD 4 times. If you try and do it yourself, that will void the warranty. Good luck
