Has nothing to do with fuses, if you go to the navigation screen and it says error loading/reading navigation dvd, either your dvd is scratched, your dvd drive is over heating or the laser reader isn't working. Take the disc out, clean it or try a different map disk and see if it works. Mine kept doing this when summer came around, now that it's cooling down its loading just fine :/

Thank you everyone. I read someone's post and directed me to where the fuses are located and I pulled out the ones that refrenced control panel and plugged them back in. When I started my car up the navigation screen returned. I had also just replaced the battery so I dont know if that had anything to do with it but it is all fixed now. Yeah!
