Last week my drivers side windows stopped working, due to this I took a part my center console to do the window switch fix.

Could I have possible interupted something that makes the NAV antenna function? It worked 10 days prior to me taking the center console a part (I hadn't used it in a few days).

To be more specific the NAV unit functions fine it just can't see any satellites, so I'm thinking somehow I disconnected the antenna from the unit.


Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Did you remove the entire center console? If you did, theres a chance you disturbed the CAN BUS adapter or the VSS link to the MCS. I don't know how you would have hit the antenna, as the splitter for it is behind the dash (or under the seat, depending on the year).

Grab one of the DIY posts on how to install NAV in your car that is year-specific, and go thru the steps to install, reseat all your connections, and pray.

I would reset the unit by disconnecting the battery and let it do a reset. I had the same problem and I reset the unit and then the I received the satellites.

Or pull and reinsert fuse #21 to reset. Works for me. [;)]

Maybe your antenna ripped off? I remember a similar report a while back, and then he found, well, something was missing in the rear... [:)]

Or got to FM station

PRESS MUTE + 1 + 3

There you will find a number of menus where one of them is called RESET
