For some reason, I stopped being able to get the DVD player sound to come through my FM car stereo. It used to work and then stopped. The DVD player and car stereo are both set for 89.1 mhz. The DVD player FM modulator is on and I've switched from Off, Low, Medium and High but that doesn't help either.

Hopefully you have a remote control for this unit. There is a FM select button. It's to turn on the FM modulator. When you press the button it will select different radio stations on the FM band. Once you select a station on the DVD, tune your vehicle radio station to the same and you will be able to hear the sound. Use this system to select the station with the best reception and less interference. If no remote is available, there may be a FM button on the DVD player to perform the same function.
The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.
The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).
To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.
You're probably gonna need a wired FM modulator. That part will take an audio output and run it into your antenna plug on your radio. It will use a FM channel, but it's wired directly to your stereo. So no static as found with wireless FM transmitters.
