Question about XO Vision XOD1742BT Car DVD Player

Open Question

Amplifier control, Back sight off, and Brake wire

I bought the XO Vision 1742bt and have a Ford Sport Trac. Could you tell me where to connect the Amplifier power control, Back sight off, and Brake wires?

Additionally, I have three wires remaining on my factory harness (amplifier ground, dash light illumination, and dimmer ground) and do not know if these attach to the unit or not.

I am very excited to install this unit and any help would be appreciated.

I solved it By connecting the pink wire to a constant ground this acts as a bypass so the unit plays anytime.

hi there
it shouldn't be to hard to install this but it does require cutting a hole in your interior part of roof........a install like this could take anywhere from 30 mins - 1hr for a installer to put it in. to do it yourself it could take 1-3hrs to complete (note for your first time doing this take your time and follow the install manual that will be provided)

I am just giving a suggestion. I too need to know how to wire this. From what you posted it sounds like you hooked the wire to a constant +12v that is always on. Forgive me if I am wrong. Anyway, Did you connect this wire to rear reverse light power. I think from what you say it is supposed to be connected to the positive side of that light. If this solves your problem can you PLEASE let me know the full details of everything else you hooked up on the circuit to make the backup work. For instance what is the label of the orange wire. TIA.

Hi, Can you tell me what the P.Cntr (blue/white) wire hooks up to??


the blue/white wire is for turning on an amplifier if you are using one. if not cap the wire off as it is hot when the radio is on.

Don't ground it. It's the amp remote wire. You're grounding 12V. Go here for the wire specs. Hopefully you haven't shorted anything in the unit. http://www.xovision.com/pdf/XO1915BT.pdf

No sound


You need to buy an amp adapter. SCOSCHE OEA4 4-Channel Adjustable Factory Amplifier Int. 23 bucks on ebay. You most likely have a factory amp in your car and the head unit's speaker output wires are already amped. the factory amp can't understand the audio signal.

E- brake bypass


Thanks for everyone's help. The bcar screen actually is the backup camera screen which is activated by the orange wire and when I turned on the lights, it got activated. I disconnected the orange wire and everything is fine. When I get a backup camera I'll connect that wire to the backup lights so that it will come on whenever I put the car in reverse. You are right that their manual is not very clear at all. I called their tech support and they couldn't help me trouble shoot the problem either. The unit is functioning perfect now but my next beef is that you can't change the XO vison default screen when a cd is playing. It would have been nice if you can scroll some jpeg shots of anything else besides looking at the xovision logo. I guess I can't have it all for $340 so, I'll stop whinning.
