Hey,

I have recently bought a 2004 MDX touring. I have a few questions, and sorry if they are asked all the time, I just couldn't find anything that truly helped.

So...

1. the nav screen is completely not working, the previous owner said the whole system had to be replaced, but I just wanted to see if that was the actual problem or not. He said there is a unit under the front passengers seat that needs to be replaced. The screen turns on, you can tell it is lit up at night, but there is just no information on the screen. I don't care too much about the actual Nav function, but the AC controls I do care about. So the question is, are there any other known issues that would cause this other than the unit under the seat needing to be replaced?

2. I am looking to put in a "face plate" unit for the stereo. My question is, Can I just replace the current system or is it tied into the Nav system as well. I do not care at all about the RES, or the controls on the steering wheel working. But the volume knob on the stock radio is broken, so controlling the volume is a pain.

Thanks for any help!

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have a used 2004 MDX where the nav system doesn’t work, so I can’t adjust many of the AC/vent settings. Would like to figure out where the problem is before I work on fixing it (nav screen/unit? Unit under passenger seat? Wiring somewhere?).

I have a 2003 MDX. It had a bad nav player when I bought it, so I picked one up at the local junkyard. The good news is I got an updated nav CD, but the player didn't work.I was able to get the old one to work for awhile, but it finally stopped after two years. My son found me another one at the junkyard and it works! Plus I got an updated version of the nav cd. The ac/heat mode and blower buttons aren't lighting up, but they were sporadic before. You can also find the players on eBay. Just go with a seller with a high rating and read the reviews. Some of them also offer a Square Trade warranty. The player is under the passenger seat and fairly easy to access. You can use this site to get the code if you don't have one:

Hope this helps!
