Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive world for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

You are correct, there is a module in the trunk that operates that system you are talking about.

It will be called the navigation module, I have attached the photo location of the module, it appears that will be the problem. It will take a qualified technician to make sure that is indeed the problem.

Let me know if you need anymore assistance regarding your issue, Thank you. Sincerely, Michael.
