Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

3 Answers

Rear Seat Entertainment System

The problem that I have is there is no power to the Video cassette player in the console. Nor is there any power to the video display unit in the rear. Chilton shows no diagram nor fuse location nor does the owners manual.I have removed the unit from the console and checked wiring and for power. There is no fire at plug for VCP but radio is fine. I have checked all fuses in power box and under dash box.No blown fuses. I am a ASE Master Mechanic but not an Audio Video guy. I had hoped to find one of you guys familiar with this system. Every one so far is telling me to buy another repair manual that may have the diagram in it.Not trying to be a smart a-- I could have done that without paying to be told go to another source. Come on guys give me some help here please. Thanks Jimmie

    I have already fixed my problem myself.Do you guys read the comments from a customer? I had already stated that I checked all fuses and they were fine. So why tell me to check the fuses again and let you know what I found out. Tennima

    I am having the same problem on my 1999 Oldsmobile Silhoutte. There are no fuses labeled for the Entertainment System that I could find. Could it be labeled differently or tied with something else? I don't know if this is just coincedence but the back brake lights do not work also.( Lights checked good)

    What fuse runs the vcr and video screen in the 2001 Ford Expedition? I don't even know which one. The diagram I have doesn't say vcr or video anything. Please help.

There is a 4 amp fuse located under the center console. You need to remove the screw under the change compartment and the one under the handle of the lid. Then pull it off. Its towards the front. I replaced mine with a 5 amp fuse.

    DaTwo,

    You are the man!! This tiny piece of wisdom is not documented anywhere obvious, and it's what the dealerships charge at least a "diagnostic fee" for, even though they know that it's there!! Changed one little fuse and the Rear Seat Entertainment System is entertaining the kids again!! Now all I need to do is figure out how to swap out the original VHS player for a DVD player!!!

    DaTwo,

    You are the man!! That tiny piece of wisdom will save folks hundreds, (perhaps thousands, depending on how many people find this), of dollars. The existence and location of the fuse is not obviously documented anywhere. The dealerships charge a "diagnostic fee" to investigate this, even they know that the fuse is there. And, they eventually talk many folks into replacing their whole RES just because of this blown fuse!

    My RES is now entertaining the kids again!! Thank You!

Have you checked to see if there is power at the specific fuse for the vcr and the video display that are on the same power wire. Since there is no power to the back, it is possibly broken or disconnected somewhere along the way. The wiring usually runs down the bottom of the vehicle below the carpet. If I were you, I would try a new wire to the plug and see if that works but first test at the fuses to make sure they are getting power since they see fine. There shouldn't be any other fuses in the vehicle except for those two spots. Let me know what you find when testing at the fuses. thanks

    I didn't say to check the fuses, I said to check at the fuses for power coming to the fuse. I'm sure the fuse is fine if you're saying so but the fuse does no good if there isn't any power coming to it and running through it. Did you have a look into this at all? If there is no power at the fuse box then the problem is between it and the battery instead of between the fuse box and the entertainment system. Do you get what I am saying? Please get back to me on this.

Lost sound on 2005 impala. radio works. seems like amp problem.


Do you have base or up;level system ?

Table 1: Radio Features
Table 2: Cassette Features
Table 3: Compact Disc Features
Table 4: XM Advisory Messages
The radio receives power from the RADIO fuse in the junction block-right I/P. Ground is provided via G201 and G202. The radio is enabled/disabled by class 2 messages from the body control module (BCM). The radio routes audio signals from the digital radio receiver or the vehicle communication interface module (VCIM) to the speakers and/or amplifier when directed by class 2 messages.
The Entertainment System on this vehicle is configured with an AM/FM stereo radio with the radio data system (RDS) and either a cassette player or a CD player or both. CD and cassette. The uplevel system provides the customer with extended range speakers and an audio amplifier. Satellite digital radio (U2K) is available with uplevel systems.
The following list shows the radios available for this vehicle:
• Radio (ULO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with RDS
• Radio (UNO) - AM/FM Stereo, CD and RDS
• Radio (UPO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with CD and RDS .The complexity of the radio systems on these vehicle is mind blowing .

Your best bet take it to a GM dealer , has features you are unawear of .
DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055
When the radio is powered up, the radio supplies low level audio signals to the speakers. If the vehicle is equipped with an audio amplifier, the amplifier will boost the signal sent to the speakers.
DTC B1025 Audio Output Circuit
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, monitor the DTC Information for DTC B1025.
Does the scan tool indicate that DTC B1025 is current?

What does "NO REMOTE DVD" mean on the entertainment system screen?


Either the power to the DVD unit is off for some reason or the signal connection to the entertainment unit is loose. It sounds more like a power issue, since the ent. unit senses the DVD but can't access it. Have the dealer check it out.
