GPS not working in navigation

Recommended Posts

My battery died this week. Changed battery, but now GPS not working. Took card out reinsert it, no change. Decided to do a master reset to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Ford Edge 2013 Limited.

I'd disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes & then see if it fixes it.

Sorry, don't know what else can be done. Hopefully a more knowledgeable member will chime in.

When you say not working, do you mean the red X over the GPS symbol?  If so, could be the OEM GPS antenna.  I just replaced my OEM GPS antenna (2011 MKX) and it resolved that issue.

Yes a red X over GPS symbol. Will check if it is that. I have an appointment with dealership in December...

I went to the dealer and he tells me he needs to replace the GPS module with 2.5 hours labour. $450

If you ask me they are nuts on the labor hours.  Hands on time shouldn't be more than an hour.  The module sits behind the instrument cluster.

I think a couple of hours is pretty reasonable. 2.5? Maybe a stretch! You have to take off 3 pieces of trim and the center console out, re-program the new APIM and also remove the head unit to detach the APIM from the back of the screen. Re-assembly is the reverse....  And then a test drive.

The GPS module is separate from the APIM so not sure why you are referencing that.  The vehicle in question is a 2013 which would have MFT/SYNC2.

I would try replacing the antenna first.  $50 and change gamble (doing the labor yourself) but it may fix the problem (did for me).
