BMW X5 2006 Fuzzy Navigation Display Fix
This video shows a fix to a fuzzed/scrambled display in the navigation screen unit. I cannot tell what the cause of it is, but thanks to a combination of web forum's info and youtube videos, I was able to fix the problem. Unfortunately when doing the video and fixing the unit I skipped recording the inside part of the unit without noticing it. As simple as it was all I did was push and wiggle the ribbons cables since I couldn’t remove them from their base. Luckily the unit is working again… Thanks for watching!!
