I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Sequoia Limited with the rear entertainment system. I have audio, but no picture. We changed the batteries in the remote control and still no picture.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

No this was the first time

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sequoia yourself? What have you tried so far?

That is all we have done not fixing it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just want to know what the issue may be. If the mechanic has seen this before? Or should we install an aftermarket entertainment system. And if so, which one fits best?

HI,

Ok, there are two common causes - the controller sub assembly and the screen display assembly. Unfortunately there are no DIY tests with just a voltmeter to detemine which is faulty. It requires a dealer level scan tool, which means a visit to the dealer to determine which is faulty.

If the controller sub assembly, there is no aftermarket for this as it is a control module/computer and will have to stay with factory.

If the display assembly, you can either go with factory or go with an Alpine or Audiovox

If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT/3 STARS OR HIGHER today. Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better. All follow up responses are FREE, after completing the required rating

Please remember to rate service using the separate rating page. Thank you
