How to watch dvd on dash monitor while driving.

I have 2007 GMC Yukon with factory dvd player that drops down from the ceiling and one in the dash.  You can only watch the one in the dash when the car is in park.  Is there a way to watch when the car is in drive?

    My remote doesn't have a setup button so I don't think this will work for me.  I did find a Gen 4 lockpick.  Any comments on this device?

    I FOUND THE PROBLEM If you can access the navigation antenna, wrap it in foil. It worked out for me. Took me a while. Give it a try.

    Our DVD player in our Yukon XL will work for about 5 minutes and then the screen goes black with fuzzy lines coming down it. The sound continues to work (through the radio), but there is nothing on the screen. Is there any way to fix this without buying a new DVD player?

WHat you need to do is get the wire that has been connected to your parking brake wiring, and simply connect it to earth. You will then trick the unit into thinking it is parked, and safe to watch a DVD.

The best way to do it is connect the wire that has to be hooked up up to a a switch then hook that switch to a ground. cuz on a lot of the after market flip up monitors everytime you turn it on you have to apply the ebrake then release it then apply it again for it to run so on mine i hid a switch under my dash so you cant even see it and when i want to watch it i just flick it on and off and then back on again and it works. most of the aftermarket flip ups have the same sequence. if you simply just ground it it wont work because you have to do that sequence.

There is a wire that connects to a sensor on the parking brake to indicate that is is engaged.

I went to Best Buy and asked one of the install guys and they told me where it was on my Nissan Armada.

Throw them a few dollars and im sure they can help you.




Best of Luck.

The wire that connects to the ebrake wire to a separate switch and just hide the switch in the car so when the screen comes up and says you cant watch while driving just flip the switch and the screen will come up. by flipping the switch it makes it think that it is connected to the ebrake. i have a dual flip up dvd touch screen and thats what i did.

The eBrake goes to ground whenever you apply the parking brake. So If you connect that brakewire from the Eclipse system to a ground(black) wire on your car (you can just tap it into the car stereo black wire) and that will trick your system into believing that you have your parking brakes on.

    When you run over that family of four while driving/watching movies, be sure to come back here and post your apology for a REALLY bad idea.

    Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you should. See you on the road Jackwagon

  • mazda6monsta Oct 16, 2010

    Bad Idea? maybe its not for the driver but for the passengers. If it is a distraction to the driver then it shouldn't be done however that all depends on the driver. Meanwhile in most states you still can't get pulled over for talking on a cell phone; therefore be of better judgement. If you have ADD then I would say nogo lol.

    This may not be for the driver to watch the screen but it would be very nice as a passenger on a trip to watch the dvd also the children inthe backseat would enjoy watching it. I dont know to many drivers of a vehicle that would be stupid enough to watch tv whiledriving while some of you are posting such negetive comments. Maybe you should take the time to ask if its for the driver or passengers of the vehicle instaed of assumimg its for the driver.

The best way to conquer this is to connect the brake wire from the stereo to a ground wire. This worked on two my aftermarket radios. It was suggested by Circuit City.

1: Go into AM/FM mode
2: Hit "setup" on the remote control
3: Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each number entered
4: A new menu will appear. Touch the button that has the hammer/screwdriver on it in the upper left-hand part of the screen.
5: Select Brake bypass to "ON" and hit the "X" near the bottom of the screen.
6: Use the unit wisely and above all safely. A ticket is one thing, causing a fatal accident due to negligence is another.

(YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HOOK UP THE EBRAKE WIRE)

In my 2016 yukon sle my Sunroof an my DVD player in the ceiling isn't working, where would I check to see if it's the fuse

Instrument Panel Fuse Block (Right) The right instrument panel fuse block access door is on the passenger side edge of the instrument panel.

Fuse 21 - Sunroof
Fuse 29 - Radio

See pg 294/5

Not sure where the DVD player gets power if not w/ sunroof.

No power to my Myron and Davis did player in my 1999 Yukon

That is not factory installed unit so first step if you k own where the wire connect to the trucks wiring (most installers use either the wiring behind the radio or at the fuse box) there may be 2 power wires usually they both have fuses. Check those first if you can find them easily. If bot you will need to drop the monitor (I assume it is ceiling mounted). Check for power and ground on the wires at the unit. Usually there is a red and a yello. Red has 12v with ignition on, yellow has 12 v always and black is ground. If the power at the monitors good then the unit is bad. If this is a split system (seperate DVD and sepe8monitor ( check same at both units. If you are not comfortable doing this any car audio shop can check it for you.

I have a 2000 GMC Yukon XL no power is going to the DVD player or the VCR can't find the fuse

If these components were installed after the vehicle left the factory, the fuse could be in one of several different locations. Sometimes they are in-line fuses that are zip tied under the dash just above the pedals. Possible under the hood somewhere or under one of the seats.

What do you know about who installed these components to this vehicle?

Can/how do I get sound to play in factory dvd player (2002 Envoy) without using headphones?

If you have an active headphone jack, just plug in some PC speakers. I don't know how best to mount them or what kind of volume you'd get out of them but that would be quick, cheap, and easy.

2007 yukon xl battery dead recharged battery will not start no security light no gages work when you turn the key on. try to start the engine nothing happen like the security system shut down. can you...

We had the same issue with our 2007 Yukon Denali XL. Died on us twice after sitting for short periods of time; once we watched a DVD with the engine off and battery died within 10 minutes. The dealership kept it overnight to troubleshoot why the battery died so quickly. They said the radio was "pulling" too much from the battery. (They supposably fixed it) But again a few days later the battery died again after sitting overnight. We brought it back to the dealership and they brought in a GMC "expert" to replace the entire DVD/CD/Navigation system. They also replaced our battery with a much larger battery, similar to the ones that GMC puts in there diesel trucks. They had our Denali for 5 days, but it appears to be fixed now.
Getting it fixed correctly wasn't without headaches, but it was all covered under warranty, including the battery. And they are updating the nav w/ the new edition disc as well for no charge.

Overhead DVD monitor screen dead but sound plays through stereo

If it's a Rosen dvd player the dvd will need to be put in the unit itself & not the unit in the dashboard! The dvd player mounted in the head ligning is a seperate unit from the stereo system fitted in your dashboard!
Sounds to me like you are putting a dvd into the dashboard stereo system which will play any audio through the car speakers...
Put a dvd into the Rosen unit itself & i am sure you will get a picture on the drop down screen! Remember that as far as i know all Rosen dvd players transmit the sound from the dvd to infra red headphones that should be included! Remember to check the batteries if you still can't hear any sound as they run down quick if the headphones are left on!

Hope this helps....
