Kenwood navigation system not working after car battery dies

I have the kenwood navigation system in my 2002 honda crv. yesterday, i accidently left the lights on and ran the battery down. i had left them on for about an hour and a half, then jump started the car and ran it again. prior to that the navigation system worked perfectly in every way. since the battery was run down, it now doesn't display properly. audio passes through it ok, but the display is unusably dim and unreadable. i've run the car last night and today, it works fine and the battery seems to be doing fine. however, the kenwood system still has the display problem. is there something i can do to get this working again. i expected to perhaps lose my radio station presets, but don't understand how the display is still effected. did jump starting the car hurt it somehow? any ideas as to what about that situation would have effected the display?

"PROTECT" means that the unit's thermal protection units were activated, which in turn cut off output power to the speakers. The causes for this vary. Usually, it's a problem with the impedance load that the speakers present to the power amplifier inside the receiver. Occasionally, the circuit acts up and activates itself, or playing the unit too loudly has blown a fuse. First, check all the user servicable fuses. You'll find their location and amperage rating in the user's manual. If they're broken, replace them. Make sure that none of the bare wire from any speaker is touching any bare wire from any other speaker. If the unit still won't power up, then I'm afraid you'll have to take it into the shop for evaluation by a qualified repair technician. Best of Luck.

I have seen problems in the hideaway (brain) where 8v reg circuit fails causing higher voltage(12v to 14v) to be on that 8v line. First component to fail is the Tuner followed by electronic volume ic. I have probably seen 6-8 failures where tuner fails. Fix is to replace tuner and replace open chip resistor in Hideaway box to restore 8v regulator to proper voltage. kstahl65@att.net

I would be willing to bet you have a 8v regulator circuit failure in hideaway Box. I have seen many of these units where a resistor opens and causes 12v instead of 8v to appear at tuner and a few other IC's. Usually But not always destroys tuner.

Had the same thing happen to me. All you have to do is use a pen or a paper clip and push the reset button located on the front of the unit. It cleared right up.

Car cranks but will not start


first thing take the 120 amp fuse out and throw it away
the 100 amp fuse was installed originally to protect the wiring and other related parts
next by connecting to the wrong terminals there is a power surge that can damage the electronics in the ECM unit and alternator
removing a battery for a charge can corrupt the immobiliser system
I would suggest that you use a scanner to read any fault codes that may be stopping the engine and then reset the CPU program in the ECM to reset the immobiliser

Crv wont start


Start by making sure the battery has at least 10.4 volts and that the cable clamps are clean and tight on the battery posts. If these are good, check the wiring to the starter. Make sure the "small" wire is pushed all the way into the connector and the "big" wire is tight against it's post. If all this is good and it still won't start, I would check to see if full battery power is going to the started on the "big" cable. If not, you need to back track the wiring to see where power stops. Possibly the alarm system is activated or the ignition switch has gone bad or the fuse for the ignition system is blown because of the old starter. Of course, start with the fuse check first.

Check to see if alternator is charging. Battery light is an indicator that your alternator is not charging. Start engine use multimeter at battery 20 v dc or if autorange meter just dc. engine at idle the battery should read 14 - 14.5 volts. if not replace alternator.

From Japanese to English Honda CRV Navigation and Sound System


Hi David, since there's no english language support in honda navi systems, my suggestion is to scrap the head unit and buy an aftermarket one. Kenwood or JVC 2-din units are compatible with honda system. If you have steering control, install SWI interface module (google: pac swi). Ff you have reverse camera, make sure the player have CCD input.
