#368 of 827 2003 Lincoln Navigator CD-6 Error
Aug 24, 2006 (11:49 am)
I have a CD error message on the stereo display and I can't play or eject any of the CDs the radio AM/FM still works. Does anyone know if this can be fixed without being taken to the DealerShip. Someone recently broke into our navigator and stole the middle console leaving behind the stereo. It was still working but I'm not sure if its the constant removing of the stereo that has caused this error. We remove the stereo because the insurance has still not paid for the damages it has(window is broken).

Most stereo shops could fix this, but may not want to. The dealer can get it done for you though, and it should be under warranty still, unless you have a ton of miles on the truck. Sadly, Ford switched from Visteon for their radio supplier to Delphi (a formerly GM company) a few years ago, and the radios have been junk ever since.
#371 of 827 Tailgate ajar light stays on- 2003 Navigator
Aug 27, 2006 (1:14 pm)
I have a 2003 Lincoln Navi. It has a power liftgate. However, if used manually the liftgate ajar light stays on. I had the dealer fix this problem a couple of years back, but always use the remote to activate the liftgate. A guest tried to manually open the liftgate the other day, and the light has stayed on since. Does anyone have any suggestions?Please help ASAP. Thanks.

Yes - open the liftgate, either way. Power down the truck by taking off a battery cable for 20 seconds at least. Hook back up, close the liftgate with your remote or the switch inside, you should be ok.

Got the Navigator back from dealer today. I, again, complained about the tapping noise between the doors on the b-pillar. I pointed out the scuff marks on the glossy black trim b/w the front and rear door. It's the vertical glossy trim piece between the door windows. The scuff marks appeared to show that the trim pieces pressed against each other and made the trim pieces flex and make popping noises.
Well, they adjusted the front and rear door alignment and the noise is gone so far. I will let you know how the fix holds up. I feel relieved of the annoying stressful tapping noise. Persistence pays off even though but I had to diagnose it myself. Props to the dealer.
Anyone out there have a sweet coolant type smell from recycling automatic AC operation. You smell the strong odor immediately after the AC's set temp is reached after full fan speed. So, as soon as the fan speed lowers when the cabin is cooled down the sweet smell appears. Dealer could "not replicate."
#374 of 827 2003 navigator question
Aug 31, 2006 (7:14 am)
I own a 2003 Navigator, Luxury edition. It does not have a nav system, and it does not have the nav butons on the steering wheel. With that said, i was wondering if someone could tell me if the Lincoln factory touchscreen nav radio will work if installed in my Navigator. I do realize that i will lose some of the feature, esp. the voice control feature due to the incorrect steering wheel button. I want to know if it will work, or if i will completely screw up my truck. I would also like to know if I am wasting my money in purchasing this unit.
Could someone please help with some info/advice?
#375 of 827 Side View Mirrors leak water
Aug 31, 2006 (8:02 pm)
Hello. Does anybody have a problem with their Navigator side view mirrors leaking/dripping water after a wash? Mine continues to drip for hours and it leaves a permanent water line mark along side each front door... (even after constant airpressure, towels, slamming doors, etc.)
I have a 2003. The delearship said that ALL Navigators do this... I'm trying to figure out if this is true - or if it is indeed a design flaw on my truck...

Your sweet coolant smell is a breached heater core, leaking slightly. I hope you're still under warranty, it needs to be changed out.

Even though the AC is in use the breach in the heater core would cause that smell? That makes sense. I imagine I would smell it even more in the winter when the heater is in use. You definitely know your Navigators. I am still under warranty, 2005 with 18K miles.
I just hate paying for the rental car taxes. I tried to get out of it but they won't give in. I may take it to the dealer I bought it at cause they do not charge anything for the rental but it is further and the service is not as good.
Thanks nvbanker. You sure helped me solve a lot of my Navigator issues.
