Navigation Unit Failure
Hey there fellow BMW enthusiasts! I've recently became a BMW owner, and my first car is a 745Li. Buying it used, it's previous history was filled with various animals, notably cat, and other unidentified creatures. With sleeves rolled high and a mindset of a maid, I cleaned this sucker up. Living in an area that produces cold powder on a daily basis, I don't have many reasons to drive, let alone a luxury car like this. I found it odd, when one day, out of the ordinary, I decided to drive it to the local market when, dead battery. Confounded, I asked a friend for his NAPA Battery charger he nicked from a closed NAPA Auto shop. Purely dead, it wouldn't charge. Money isn't such an issue, so I bought a new battery. Another week later, Dead. Though more like Frankenstein, it could be recessed by powers of lightning. Curious I scour the entire vehicle for signs of broken electronics. Culprit I did find, the darned Navigation DVD Unit doesn't turn off! I bought this beauty used, and surprisingly enough, it didn't have a navigation DVD with it, not a problem remembering the local roads is good enough for me. However the DVD Unit just is perpetually looking for a disk. Cleverly I stuck in a blank CD-Rom, take that power hungry monster. No luck, the Unit Spins perpetually without a disk, because it wont stop to accept a disk! The thing is hooked up though the MOST network, so it has shut down my radio, amp, everything, with its consistent loading, of a disk not there. So my questions to you, members of this forum, can I conceivably fix it?. If not, is it worth replacing, or should I just stick a lollipop on it and call it a day. Thank you for reading this story written plead of help.
