Condition IP top trim pad (1)

Some customers may comment on a misalignment of the IP top trim pad (1) to the navigation screen upper trim cover (2). This causes the right side of the upper trim cover to appear higher than the left side, which is the most common customer concern.

Cause heat stake/sonic weld

The cause of the condition may be a heat stake/sonic weld left unprocessed at the supplier. This standing heat stake results in the IP pushing upward on the IP carrier, causing a gap at the left side of the trim cover.

Condition Some customers may comment that the rear seat entertainment system appears inoperable when it is very cold out. The screens will not deploy, the remote will not work, and the center stack will not be able to interact with rear video.
Cause This may be due to when the media disk player starts up a soft reset is sent to one of its micro-controllers. When low temperature conditions are present, the micro-controller does not always start up consistently.

This condition is detectable by another micro-controller inside the media disk player. When this condition is detected, that micro-controller will send a hard reset to the inactive micro-controller, which will cause it to resume normal operation.
