A couple of years ago I had the MFD pack up, it was changed as a warranty issue and now the replacement one has also failed! Does anybody know if the second unit is covered by a warranty and has anybody else had a second failure with their units? Looks like Clarion who manufacture these have a major problem with either their design or manufacturing procedures.

When you say "failure" what do you mean?

May sound like a stupid question, but I ask because of the battery issues I'm having.
finally pulled a fuse that powers the MFD stereo a/c etc and the tester bulb went out. Do you know if there is a relay that powers this unit or is it a visit to a NHPC for a new system?

Cheers

On start up the GTR logo appears on the screen then a screen appears which states "HDD problem, consult a NHPC". Below this the aircon temp shows and works as normal but no audio or gauge visual display.

Thanks to Tin and his link I've accessed the "hidden" menu and found an error code. The display is working again today but originally shut down on the way back from Blyton and again yesterday afternoon when I was doing passenger rides for a charity, perhaps it doesn't like going above a certain speed! :flame:
The errors which were stored are, Can communication circuit 39, AV circuit communication 39, Internal communication 39. Anybody shed any light on these errors?

After a bit more research it appears the numbers are not codes but the number of times the fault has occurred, I've cleared the errors and will try the car again today to see if it still shows further errors.

Fwiw nobles in Edinburgh replaced mine. I'm coming up for 5 years in September so not sure what I'll do if it fails after that.
Best of luck with yours.

Did you clear the codes using the EcuTek cable Barry? Good luck getting it sorted buddy :thumbsup:

Edit: Just had a look at mine and I can see that you can delete the codes from within the system itself.

Barry, FYI, I also had 39 occurrences of that error codes so maybe that's something that is generated by Nissan when they do their testing as it seems strange that we both have the same number of errors?

Looks like yours is on borrowed time also :eek:

Just a thought, could it be a temp related thing? As you mentioned it happened on the way back from Blyton & yesterday which was pretty warm too. Some useful pics on removing the mfd screen, not sure where the control unit sits..

Also would the newer 2012 'satnav' DVD update, update any of the supporting modules? Even though you don't have satnav, updating the firmware possibly may help?

Mine was playing up again yesterday in the high temps at Donington, it had been fine for several weeks :mad:
