: Need Help with Nav Unit!

04-24-11, 01:26 AM
So I am looking to purchase a 07 escalade from a local independent dealer. It has 73,xxx miles on it. I personally know the pervious owner so I have no doubt of abuse. Its fully loaded with power steps.

Well when I went to look at it today, the Navigation screen would not turn on. The dealer owner said he had it detailed and then it quit working.... More things are wrong... No OnStar, Back up camera obviously does not work, rear entertainment, park assist too! Could it be as easy as a blown fuse?

BTW when I hold down the power button for the nav/radio. For maybe 3 secs it makes a beep. Don't know why...

Im going back to the dealer Monday to look over it again. Kinda hesitant to buy it now.

What else should I look out for?

One more thing wrong, the front windshield wiper fluid works up front but the rear does not. The guy said it might have a separate reservoir, does it? I dont think it does my 07 denali does not.

Thanks guys!

good to know, thanks.

I did a search on here, seems that two other guys have had the same problem but they never responded back with a solution.

And there still asking what they were asking before when It all worked? Use that to get a lower price and if ends up needing a new nav ebay has a lot of them, aftermarket and oem. And some of newer 2010 ones with usb.

Unplug the battery for about 2 hours

no the suv is priced well. 28.5k but he did that because it needs new tires. He has not reduce the price of the car yet because he thinks he can get the nav to work.

Hey is it normal when the navi/radio doesn't work you cannot put in a cd? It almost as if there is this metal piece blocking it...

anyone seen or heard of this?

@Mattah to insert a CD you have to hit the button above the CD Eject button (It has an icon that looks like a stack of CD's) than a message will display on the Nav that says you can insert the disc.

I would agree with fivepix. You have to press the button that looks like a stack of CDs in order to insert a cd into the system. If you get a chance to take a look at the owners manual you can find this information on page 280. I hope this helps you.
