Porsche PCM Sat Nav not reciving any satellites


Recommended Posts

HELP!

I had an extensive valet on my car today (including carpets being washed etc.) but on the way home noticed that the map view was locked to the location of the valet people and not updating as i drove along. I entered a new destination but the navi simply starts trying to calculate a route but never finds one. When I checked the status on the Navi screen it was showing that no satelites were visble all the way home (13 miles). I have tried switching it on and off but it is still showing the old location and no satalites found in the status menu. I am wondering if the guys have dislodged a cable or damaged something while cleaning the interior/exterior/engine of the car.

Has anyone got any ideas as I don't know where to start?

The car is a 2005 Carrera S with PCM with telehone etc.

Antenna.

It's screwed down under the exterior lower windscreen scuttle cover by a single screw with a cable protruding out from it. It's a thin plate that attaches flat side up. Trouble is, whereas it sounds like a reception problem, i can't imagine how it would have come loose. Maybe they forced water behind the plastic cowling?

Probably best to try pulling the fuse to the PCM and reinserting allowing it to reset. Apart from these two, there is the DVD player which houses the gyro and the relevant wires (copper and optical) that run to the PCM rear.

Hi Pop

Many Thanks, I owe you a very large beer as it is now working. Something must had crashed and needed a reboot. FYI I had to leave the fuse out for an extended period as the first time I tried it didn't do the job.

Thanks again

I have recently acquired a 2007 GT3. The navigation is not receiving satellites. I check the GPS antennae and the wire was disconnected. I reconnected and I still do not receive any satellites. In reading this thread, I would like to try removing the fuse. Where is the fuse located? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!
