Question about Car Audio & Video

No power to ACT car video

We have a 2003 Town and Country, and have had three professionally installed ACT 8.4" car video players (ACTM84FDDVD) that have died. Each has been installed where the dome light would be. Each has stopped working. At first the DVD player works fine. Then the DVD has no power when the car is turned on, but after a time the power comes on while we're driving. Eventually the DVD will not turn on at all and it's dead. The second DVD player had a period where after if would finally turn on, it would loose signal. There would be sound, but no picture. It eventually died all the way too. The shop who is installing the DVD players says they're hooking them in to the radio. Our radio works fine. We have had a load test done on the car, and it is fine, too. Now we have the fourth DVD player installed, but we're afraid to turn it on until we know what's happening. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Those player are very low price and quility, about $25 each. I would go with an indash touchscreen unit from Pioneer or Kenwood and send signal to the flipdown screen.

I just got a 2003 town & country and the DVD player in it will not work and I can't figure out why....


You need to run a continuity test
on the DVD player first, to see if
it has any bad connections inside.
If that is okay then a bad fuse or
a problem in the wiring.

The cost to repair it will cost you more then to just buy a used one from a auto wrecker.

I can't get my factory radio to play while my factory dvd is playing through the speakers on my 2003 town and country


That is intentional; the car radio audio is disabled while the player is working. The previous owner of my Town and Country had a modification done that disabled this by switching off the signal to the radio, so the kids can use the headphones, and I can get my talk radio fix on long trips. It was done by the dealer, so they should be familiar with the procedure.
