My name is ***** *****. I have a Nissan Navara 08 plate. The sat nav, stereo has started to display "Secure" on a green background. I have no stereo at all now or GPS. Is there a way that I can reset?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Unless this happened as a result of a battery disconnect and it's now asking for a code, this is going to be an internal failure in the radio.

Did the problem happen after the radio or battery were disconnected?

If not, have you tried a disconnect to see if anything changes? It isn't uncommon for a radio to electronically lock up and it could work again after a power cycle.
