Map DVD

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone:) Just wondering if there is anyone out there who has had an issue with their stereo unit seizing up after a flat battery. We have a message which is frozen on the screen which says... No dvd, please insert map dvd. We have done this and the dvd is not re`setting the stereo unit. We can`t operate our radio/cd player, reverse camera is not functioning either. We have been told by one of the Toyota dealers that we may need to fork out 4-5k to completely replace the head unit:( Not keen on paying that expense just because we had a flat battery and our head unit has seized up. Any help would be much appreciated. TIA.

Hey Podge, sorry to hear of your bad luck. Toyota can charge some ridiculous prices sometimes too for parts...

Not sure what model you have but I have a 2011 kluger grande. There is a factory reset option on my multimedia unit, have you tried pressing that?

I would then try disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it again and seeing if that works.

Failing all that and if the stereo unit is really broken, I would find a replacement unit at the wreckers as 4-5k is ridiculous. I remember I had to find a replacement boot cover for my kluger and Toyota was going to charge about a grand for it, I found one at the wreckers for 200.

Thanks for your reply:) I have a 2011 Kluger Grande aswell. The screen on our head unit is frozen so can`t access multimedia for factory reset option. Was worried about disconnecting the battery incase the immobiliser needs to be reset? Which might cost $$ too. Might try though...willing to give anything a crack now! Thanks again.

the battery in my aurion went flat when i was running a copied map dvd (v26) and i lost all functions. i loaded in a genuine map dvd from 2008 (v15) and regained all functions. i then removed the genuine dvd and put in the copied one for the latest maps.
