    Default no sat nav after flat battery/alternator failure

    hi all im gonna start a new thread as since i have changed my alternator i have no sat nav ? it will not load,switch on,or eject disc.funny thing is the stereo works fine ? is there a fuse for sat nav or any way of sorting this out,dealer said they can plug diagnostic in but am guessing they will want silly money ? any ideas folks thanks,carl.

    Seems odd but if you disconect the battery then you need the radio code

    As I understand it, you don't need the radio code after disconnecting battery on facelift models.

    If the steering wheel has 6 buttons, then you need a code.

    If the steering wheel has 4 buttons and 2 scroll wheels, then you don't need a code (other than if you change the either the stereo or display as the two are married up together as a paired unit)
