: Nav screen goes dark sporadically

A few days ago, my nav screen just blanked out while I was driving. The audio still works when the creen is blank. When I restarted the car, it came back on. It has now happened a few more times. With it being a sporadic problem, I can only imagine what will happen if I take it in to the dealer. "Can't replicate the problem."

Any thoughts?

I've had it occur in two different NAV/Radio units. Both were replaced. However in both cases I took it by the dealership while it was off so they could in fact see it. If you do not think it will be convenient to do so I would video record it happening to show them proof.

The dealerships seem quite aware that the Nav/Radio units in these cars are problem children and shouldn't be surprised. Here's my history, with the exception of the last radio replaced that was done after this was pulled, and it was one of the black screen issues.

Oh joy! Thanks guys! Now I'm glad I had not gotten around to installing that lockpick yet!

It's honestly one of the reasons I've given up on the idea of getting one. I'd be an expert at taking it in and out by now. :ill:
