AVIC-D3 WTF?!

Post by Mr Kleen » Sun Feb 28, 2010 2:31 pm

my AVIC-D3 is having an odd issue: every time I turn the car off and back on, the D3 refuses to start up or respond to any buttons. the "starting Pioneer Navigation" message flashes up and the it reverts to the "off" screen and won't respond to any button presses other than the reset. if I press the reset button it will start up and I have to reset all my settings, but it works fine. next time I start the car it's back to the same thing. I've searched online for other people having this issue but so far no luck. any ideas short of tossing it and buying a new navi?

edit: looks like two other people had the same issue in 2009 but no replies to the thread. :cry:

I was just going to say, if it isn't on avic411, it isn't anywhere. Bummer dude.

Did you purchase an extended warranty?

so yesterday when I got in the car and hit the reset button on the D3, it remembered all my settings. today it's working without resetting at all.
it's crazy but if it works I'm not asking questions. :lol:

Maybe it knew tonight was Python night and got scared?
