Ford factory Naigation fault error

I've purchased and installed a Ford factory navigation radio from a 2007 Ford Freestyle into my 2005 Ford Freestyle. For the most part it was a ''plug n play'' situation. However there are two issues:
1. I am unable to set the clock/calender as the touch screen functions won't enable.
2. After I installed the L4 disc the radio came with, I receive a ''Navigation Fault'' message that advises me to contact my dealership.
I'm using an aftermarket satellite radio antenna, magnetic mounted on my rooftop. Dealer says $110.00 just to look at the system with no guarantees. Is this a programming issue, or something I can take care of on my own? Any help is appreciated.

How to install on a Ford freestyle 2007 3.0 liter / Serpentine belt replacement

Use a ratchet or breaker to release tension and route the new belt as shown here: . The engine in the 2007 is the same as the 2005 shown on the link. Typically this job should take about 15 to 20 minutes at most. It helps, btw, to have a helper to hold that tension off the belt path until the belt is in place, then slowly release the tensioner.

How to install a starter 2007 ford freestyle

If you're going to keep this vehicle, and intend on doing some of the maintenance yourself, go to an auto parts store and purchase a Haynes or Chilton repair/service manual. The $15-$20 investment will provide you most all the answers you need regarding proper steps and tools needed.

My radio has an aux button but the car does not have a jack for aux play? am i looking in right place or do i have to have one installed?

07 Ranger and Mustang were the first vehicles to come with a factory installed aux jack. All prior vehicles had to have one installed. I believe the Ford kit was called Trip Tunes.

A cd is apparently jammed in our 2005 Ford Freestyle...just displays ''cd error'' Have turned the car off and on to no avail

I've had the same problem and would love to know what you've done about this. I have disliked this particular radio on it since I bought it. The ejecting and loading process is terrible.

I have a 05 freestyle and the radio is a 6 disc factory changer it says their is a (cd error) and will not let me acess any of the other cds how can I fix this?

nothing you can do yourself
you can get the CD's removed by any stereo repair shop but the CD player is toast.

Being a 2005, I would go to the dealer, assuming you bought the vehicle new, and tell them just how much you love your car and would hate to replace the radio with an aftermarket stereo.

This technique works well because dealers want happy customers.

Furthermore, they should have at least one or two extra radios laying around

Navigation upgrade for 2007 9-3 Aero

You will have to have it programmed at a Saab dealer. It wouldn't hurt to remove the old EHU (radio) and see if you have different connectors. Remove the screw covers (4) carefully and remove the screws. Then it will come right out. I think there are different connectors which would mean you are screwed but I am not sure. Make sure you have the Nav. DVD.
