    2014 clio medianavtech-display no response 6th Jul 18 at 9:21 PM
    Slightly disappointed my clio radio/sat nav display is unresponsive today.
    Started I guess with my favourite nav locations resetting to 0 fav's yesterday.
    This morning I had use of radio 1 only-no response from onscreen selections or source steering wheel controls.
    Booked in to dealership in 2 weeks approx.
    Is this a software update type error.

    I would have thought its a fault with the unit.

    Is there not a 4 year warranty on a 2014 Clio?

    There is chatter online that a local mechanic could disconnect and re connect the unit in effect re boot the device to restore service.
    If all else fails and I have a unit to replace, then I get to save fior Apple Play-how things have changed past few years-choice off 3 or more head units from Sony/Pioneer/Kenwood-amazing future purchase.

    I'm pretty sure there'll be a fuse you can pull if that's all that's needed.

    I cancelled appointment which was due Mon morning as I had a text today asking me to call them. Was advised as my 2014 clio medianavtech is past 3 year warranty the cost to 'look at radio' is£108 UK pounds non refundable if before repair.
    I declined and the radio isn;t any better =other than the clock keeps correct time.
    Radio hasn't com on sound wise for a week or two, display is stuck on radio1 one- touch screen unresponsive. The battery and fuse resets you advise may help, I have ms I'm no longer going to be disconnecting and replacing fuses or battery leads anymore-I don't have the strength.
    Anyway I'm going to call a local audio place a few miles away-maybe 15-30 mins drive and ask them if they could attempt what you suggest.
    Other than that I've seen Apple car play stereos have a few units choice this year-there wasn't any choice a few years earlier -I can ask Halfords tomorrow if its possible to install one of those stereos which I could save up for closer to winter or early 2019 -e,g, Kenwood or Sony unit 300-349.

    First things first, before we try fuses, now that I see what kind of stereo it is, it looks like R-Link, maybe the predecessor of R-Link. So, try this - try holding the power button in for anything up to 30 seconds to see if it will reset.
    Also try that with the knob on the right.
    If those don't work, try repeatedly pressing the power button up to 10 times, and also try the knob. Pressing the 'Home' button repeatedly on R-Link can reset it, so these are worth a try I reckon before tackling the fuses.
    Fuses - I can't reconcile the manual with that fusebox. Is there a diagram of that fuse box on the inside of the little door you removed to get at it? Or, is that fusebox in the manual, actually one that's under the bonnet, probably near the battery?

    Thanks to add I've tried the power button a few times- I'll re try upto 30 secs and to right.
    The fuse box is under next to glove box-haven't opened bonnet yet-the downloadable diagram doen't match up with fuse box I have opened.
    I've been to Halfords today -Apple play stereo is NO!-which I'm disappointed at ad it seems there isn't any facia for my clio-understandable as the sterior/Santav is built in to dashboard with Chrome surround including vents etc.
    I was advised to try contacting a. Local auto electrician.
    £35 if I want to book a diagnostics next Monday though they recommended I try e-bay for a replacement unit Mines is LG -cant remember if it's r link on my car -let's try a url with one I'm considering to replace mine.

    Diags complete today.
    Only audio error was a stalk lead adaptor type error.
    Next step find a suitable head unit via e-bay -currently viewing@£105
    It will be +100 it install and£48 today for diags@£36+£12 and disconnect/reconnect battery.
    I could use iphone placed below stereo though I can listen to pre selected music or podcast, it's not a long term satnav solution when I take my eyes of road for .5 secs'
    Interesting that a brand new stereo cannot be installed in my 2014 Medianavtech tech as current unit almost integrated with some other electric type controls.

    Called the other almost local audio company whom. I called a few days earlier.
    Possible facia-they are requesting measurements to establish which radio could be installed.
    If it's suitable-then it will be purchased from ebay and delivered from EU.
    I'm expecting a call Tues next week when I could order and possibly discuss suitable stereos.
    Almost a miracle compared to last weekend.
    IPhone 8 served well with google maps+bbc radio player-wasn't bad at all.
    Tomorrow I'm honestly interested to know if I can get finance if required for another car if required
