My dvd will not play visually when not in park. The vehicle was origionally a Florida state durango and is programed that way using a StarSCAN tool. Can my dealer reprogram my durango to play dvds while in drive since it is now a Missouri suv or will it disable my entire radio?

The neutral safety switch is located on the transmission. If it is by-passed the vehicle may not start as the computer will be looking for an input signal to assure the vehicle is in a park or neutral state. Why do you need it by-passed?
Dependa on the alarm system you have if it is sentry key imobilizer the dealer has to remove and reprogram the alarm module if you have a aftermarket alarm go under the dash and remove the relay and restore wires that have been bypass to the starter and restore it in its original condition. If its a plain starter disable system you will need to acces the starter relay open the cover (located in the engine fuse junction box) expose the relay have someone in the vehicle turn key on vehicle in park or nuetral foot on the brake collapse starter relay and you will start. this is the common alarm for this year and make if this is what you have always make sure the E brake is on and your not in front should it happens to start in gear and run you over
i cannot understand how you radio would work. These radios are coded throught data link to computer. the only way to get the stereo to work is to run a calibration program through the vehicle. then it should accept your new cd player. if the stereo's are the same then may I suggest you to take the radios appart and switch the parts that don't work like CD drive assembly and faceplate.but use your factory installed stereo as the main core, this should fix your isses and work fine since the calibration is for the origional factory stereo.
Go to the dealer. It is the only way, they have to use a computer. Changing the battery doesn't make it lose it's program though. You most likely broke the battery hold down. This is the most common thing I see at my shop. If the key still starts the vehicle, you now have a bad key fob. If not, you may be able to get it reprogrammed.
On the parking brake under the dash is a switch at the top that actuates the parking brake light. On most vehicles most are two wire switches, but some are one wire switches. If you have a two wire switch then you can unplug it and use a test light with the ignition turned on without starting the vehicle and test the wires to see which is the hot wire and then connect to the one that has no voltage on it because it is the ground for the switch. The wire is used to detect the parking brake position as engaged before it will allow viewing of the DVD player when the vehicle is not moving. When the brake is off the DVD player will not play DVDs, this is a safety measure so the driver will not be distracted while driving. Good Luck, RAC
Go to AutoBeef.com and you will see there is a problem with th 98 & 99 Durangos. I took the advice to buy a refurbished PCM "Brain" from an online Florida company and my car has worked great ever since. Google for refurbished PCMs my cost <$300.00 and only 3 screws to change out. CAll the PCM company and tell they staff about your problem -- see if they think it is the brain. Sounds like same problem I had.
the United states will do the samething. the volvo dealer here would need registration and proof of ownership first to cut or reprogram and key. they need the vin number. i would suggest maybe next time in florida, you can do this.
