Screen/radio/heater are dead!

It is a 2003 Almera SE with the stupid (in my opinion) computer controlled radio and heater, with the screen in the centre of the dashboard. What was wrong with a separate stereo and manual heater controls? Who knows, but Nissan seemed to think a more complicated system was necessary.

Anyway, the screen is completely dead as is the radio and all the central buttons (including rear screen demist), and the heater cannot be adjusted, but does come on when the engine gets up to operating temperature and keeps the car at around 20 celsius. Don't ask me how that works, but I'm glad that it just happens to be "stuck" at a tolerable temperature rather than on full blast hot or cold, which would be most inconvenient.

Does anybody have any ideas what the problem could be, and any easy solutions? It was a very cheap car and I don't want to spend too much money or time on it, but at the same time I intend on keeping it until the MOT expires in October, so would like to have a working stereo and air conditioning to use for the next 7 months if possible!

Thank you in advance.
 
Hello
Once my radio went dead, but the heating controls were still working.....and a few weeks after that it wouldn't start and door locks kept clicking!!
It was solved by just charging the battery!.....have you checked the battery?...good luck

The battery is OK in so far as it starts the car with no problem, even after sitting for 3 weeks before I bought it. I will try disconnecting it for 15 minutes and reconnecting to simulate changing it in case that does anything.
 
Have you checked the two connectors that goes on the back of console ?

Would that stop the radio and heater from working though? I thought that would just disconnect the screen but leave the functions operable.

I shall have a look though.
 
They one just turn off the radio and the other just keep the heater on all the time.... just saying that could be a problem there...
