Hi,

If you get a DVD drive with disk and the disk is a pre 2006 generation DVD, it will cause your PCM to shut down with "Overheat Protection" warning. Its not overheating, its an error of running too old a disk in the car.

Yes there is a TSB issued on this - 0511/9112, dated 6/22/05. Press MAIN and TRIP buttons at the same time and you will find the software versions of all the components discovered on the ring.

PCM's going up to version 2.1 accepts the last DVD dated 10/2004 (also known as Model Level A). PCM's at version 3, 3.1 and beyond (basically cars built from 04.2005 onwards) should use DVD's dated 04/2005 and thereafter.

Thanks.

Nissan Primera Sat Nav problem


Hi,

Interesting problem, perhaps you might try to do a reset of the system initially. Normally, this ought to revert everything back to factory default but of course all user settings, preferences and configurations would also be erased. Additionally, some models/units would also ask for an entry code before being operational, pls have this available if your unit requires one. An alternative method of reset is to remove power from the mains. But again, as a reset and a code might be required.

Could you possibly provide likewise the exact make and model of the Nav DVD-CD?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Where can i find a manual for the PCM Sat Nav on a Porsche (996)


If you don't have a Porsche dealer near you, check eBay for a Nav manual. Your car should have come with one though. Good luck!

Alpine sat nav would not load...


This is not uncommon, before resorting to Alpine, try a DVD cleaning disk. It may be necessary to try it up to 6 or 7 times, but it's a lot cheaper than dealer service!!
