5 Beeps On Turning Off Ignition, Radio Sat Nav Not Working...

Hi, can someone help me?!?

I have an Avensis 08 estate with B9010 sat nav. I had a problem with the open button not working on the facia of the sat nav ( been like that for weeks) tilt button works so I used that and gently prised the screen open to get to the discs section. Both eject buttons fail to work here too. :-(

So... Today I thought I'd try again because I can't change my CD and Tinie Tempah is getting on my nerves now :-). I pressed the "eject" button whilst turning my ignition off and back on and hey presto it ejected the CD!!!!

All done!! ..... nope!

Here is where I need your diagnostic skills. I now have 5 beeps coming through my Speakers when I turn off my ignition and the whole sat nav (touch screen), radio, CD player doesn't do anything when my car is on. Yet, the !Removed! thing ejects on demand now. Confused!! I need my music back! Pls help!!

Hi there

I'm not sure weather this is actually going to help but when I fitted an after-market radio to my old ford and the tom tom sat nav was on in the car, every half an hour it would beep quite loudly through the Speakers (a bit like Morse code). However when I changed the amp out cable to a higher quality one they disappeared. I think its something to do with the shielding of the radios wires. Perhaps take the radio out and check to see if any connectors are shorting or wrapped up around power cables.

The other thing may be simply your not getting a decent earth on the stereo.

Sorry if this isn't very helpful but at least its an attempt haha

Well, I'm having the same issue. Last week we removed a Parrot Phone kit and now I have the "Contact Dealer" message nothing on the radio/CD/Satnav works and 5 beeps when I remove the ignition key. I tried inserting the Sat nav disc, that did not solve anything. So next plan of action is double check the wiring behind the stereo.

There's been a few posts about that particular head unit. The micro switches appear to fail making it effectively useless. eBay adverts occasionally offer a repair service but it's not cheap. Replacement units also turn up but an after-market radio with a facia adapter is probably simpler. The sat nav from that era isn't brilliant and pairing with a phone is not ideal either.

I took my car to the main dealer. They inform me I failed to carry out the correct shut down procedure when disconnecting the Battery. Having looked through the owners manuals provided with the car I see no set out shut down procedure. Can anyone advise me of such a thing or where to find it?

Dingles in Attleborough, Norfolk tell me it will cost £60 to have it removed, sent away and have it rebooted.

I presume you are talking about your 2007 T180 which presumably has a TNS700/B9010? What are the symptoms - nothing at all (no radio)?

Afaik it should just need a satnav disc (it also holds operating system files) in the appropriate drive - I changed the Battery on my 2007 with no precautions (other than not having anything on when I removed the cables) & had no problem.

Well, here's an update.

One of the circuits in the head unit has fried/failed.

Cost to repair would be £486, cost to replace with new is £3800.

So options are find a second hand unit or see if it's possible to fit a double Din Sat-Nav Radio combo.

who quoted this? You may find a specialist can do it cheaper (I imagine that the dealer will send it out anyway).

This was the price they quoted from the "External" specialist.

The local Car Audio Specialist shop has quoted approx. £800 for a Clarion 7" Sat Nav Stereo, bluetooth with an option to fit DAB and Reversing camera later, supply and fit with all the adapters etc.

eBay has a secondhand original unit for £188, I might go down this option in the short term.

Well, you can bet that they added in a margin for themselves.

The cheapest option is probably the s/h but it is 10 year old tech, expensive to update mapping & there are better solutions these days.

I'd love to go for the Clarion with Added DAB and Reversing camera, but that makes it a £1100 stereo. The £200 secondhand option leaves me with £900 in my account for when I want to upgrade the car. (If and when)

Further update.

I purchased a secondhand unit off eBay for under £200, plugged it in and it works fine. I've listed my old one on eBay as spares or repair, you never know someone might need the touch screen module or a new screen.

Another update.

One of the Air Con pipes leaked and needed replacing, so the garage removed the Battery. they had the same issue come up, 5 beeps and the screen opening up. Removed the sat nave disc and put it back in, Sat nav would not boot up, so back to main agents. they had some kind of master boot up disc and it's now working fine.

They've charged my local garage £50 to insert a disc and a quick text drive.

Which equates to around 30 minutes labour and use of the master disc.

Would you believe it? It's happened again!! Car refused to start,  like it had a flat Battery, no dash lights. Turned key off and on again, car started the same as ever. But Stereo has once again reverted back to the 5 beeps, with the display of "Go back to dealer"

 

Here we go again!!

I think the only time mine beeps at me is when I turn off with the screen open already. Pop your satnav DVD out,  pull the main Battery terminal for at least ten minutes,  reconnect it and then start the car.  While it idles for a while to regain its idle speed settings, open your screen,  pop in the DVD and close the screen. It should say something about loading programs. If it doesn't work,  then you might need to visit the dealer for the master disc treatment again.

Thank You Paul

 I will give it a try in the morning, I'm going to check the condition of the Battery to see what CCA it has in the Battery (although it did eventually start with no issues)

Something to do on Xmas Day Morning.

If no joy, I'll just take the Corolla out on visits.

Checked the Battery, 285 to 345 CCA, considering it should be 800 CCA that means it's a bit knackered.

Removed the Map DVD, disconnected Battery, did my checks on CCA, refitted Battery connection, started car (with no problem considering how low the battery claimed to be 12.6V), reinserted Map DVD...………….same problem.

I have the 5 beeps back again.

As the alternator had to be replaced. So back to the main agent, for the master boot up disc to be inserted.
