Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

From what you have described here your Nav. system is unable to pick up your vehicles location.This is why you see these messages.Most likely the GPS antennae was damaged or antennae circuit needing replaced as this was a common fault.

The GPS antennae and antennae circuit needs checked/tested to see if this is the wiring at fault or the antennae itself needing replaced.Depending on the model and what was repaired at the body shop it may have been damaged in the collision or may have been damaged when the repairs were done.This does need to be checked over to locate which is the cause.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

I also let you know I purchased antenna from ebay two different one I put both on still didn't respond, you said antenna module is part of the antenna or separate than I look in to that also, I had strong feelings that was the reason, your answer was okay and make sense I need it second opinion other than my own thanks

Unfortunately the web site will not allow me to place the call.They will let you know on this but we can continue here.

Can you tell me the year, make and model of your vehicle?

the one on the back of th roof off the car

Was it just the antennae assembly or the complete wire assembly leading from the antennae to the navigation unit?

Jus the antenna, it did came with wires also but I didn't think any damaged on wires, the car wasn't in Colision went in just paint job , but I noticed that what ever
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Reason black part sticks out was broken, that's how I found out problem with antenna, do you think I should replace the wirin harness?

O.k.,you need to do a resistance test from the antennae wire connection at the antennae to the navigation end of the wiring cable harness to see if the antennae harness is shorted or open.If it is found to be shorted or open then the cable/harness needs replaced.If it is found to be o.k. then the navigation unit itself needs replaced to correct this here.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
