Customer Question

I have a 2008 TL. The HFL was working fine until about a week ago-now it works occasionally, but usually says "booting up." I saw on-line that some people have had success in pulling the fuses which control it for about a minute and then plugging them back in, and i wanted to try that before replacing the unit; but i can't find any guidance on what fuses control the HFL.

The fuse is #6 under the dash, It controls the radio and clock as well. The best way to try and reset the unit is to just unplug it. This will not only do the same thing as pulling the fuse but keep you from erasing the memory in the other units in the car . Also if it does not fix the problem ( this rarely works) you will already have the unit unplugged and ready for replacement. If the unit is not working I would recommend unplugging it because they are prone to draining the battery when they go bad.Here is how to remove the unit its really easy to do.
