When he had the tech 2 hooked up to it there were no diagnostic issues or any previous fault codes. He wasn't a technician though and i'm not sure he knew much about it other than hooking up the tech 2 and pushing the walkthrough buttons. My thought is that maybe something was disconnected from the harness when I initially put the replacement radio in or maybe these radios that i'm replacing with don't have the capability to host a DVD player. I just don't know how and why they would make these players different. To me all it needs to do is recognize there's external input. The last thought I had would be to ditch the ability to use the CD player and reinstall the original radio (since it was the last one that worked with the DVD player) and put it back in so at least the kids can have DVD sound (or at least it will tell me if the problem is the radio or something else). Of course, I expect I'll have to take back to dealer to unlock it and I don't know how many times they'll do it for free. The strange part is that nothing fried or acted strange when I removed the original as to seem like something blew out which almost tells me its something to do with recognizing there's a dvd player there. I would think the video routes through a different channel to the rear screen.
Also, can you tell me what a DTC is, i'm not familiar with the car repair acronymns. I'm learning as I go.
Maybe they can hear sound through the headphones only?
