#161 of 255 Re: DVD Player accessories [kristianw]
Feb 25, 2008 (9:48 pm)
I just purchased a 2005 Pacifica Touring with the DVD In the Dash but no screen , remote or headphones. My Dealer told me that it is called "DVD Ready" Which means that it comes with the DVD in the dash but nothing else. Personally I think that is useless to have a DVD Player but no screen to watch it. I did find a seller on ebay that was selling Chrysler Rear DVD Systems for fairly reasonable $. He bought out a dealership and was liquidating parts from the shelves. There is one problem with this system. The DVD in the dash will only work with the "Chrysler" Screen and wiring harness (unless you plan to do some creative wiring job). I bought this system and had it put in this weekend and it works great with the exception of the Headphones. And the reason I think they don't work is because I just found out that there are in fact 2 models of headphones. One is a Radio frequency like 900 Mhz and the other is Infrared. I think I need the Infrared headphones in order for them to work. I hope this answered alot of your questions. The ebay seller for the DVD System is: Tauk

The factory radios have left and right audio outputs. The front and rear fading is done with commands from the radio to the PCI buss and then to the rear amp. The turn on signal also gets there over the PCI bus. You need a METRA CHYO-02 adaptor and then you can keep the factory amp. It takes the front and rear preamp outputs from the new radio and the amp turn on signal and runs them through a black box and presto, it all works. The sub output is not used. The factory amplifier has all of the crossovers and stuff in it. If you have the base 6 speaker system with the 200 watt amp or the 5.1 surround 385 watt intermezzo with the subwoofer, makes no difference. the Metra adaptor takes care of it. You will also need a PAC SWI-JACK adaptor if you want to keep the steering wheel controls.
The factory nav and factory uconnect audio go directly to the amplifier, not the head unit. The trick is how to contol the volume of them whith the factory system generating a PCI buss signal for the volume level. Best bet is to bite the bullet and replace nav, bluetooth, etc with a new double din head unit. You could get this all to work with the factory amp. I put a double din Kenwood in my 2008 along with sirius, bluetooth, ipod, nav, and backup camera, and provision for future rear seat DVD. The car had the intermezzo 385 watt system, no nav, no uconnect, no rear seat dvd, had sirius, had 6 disc changer. Removed factory sirius and 6 disc changer.
#163 of 255 Rear Video headphones
Mar 14, 2008 (7:36 pm)
I bought a used pacifica 2004. It has rear video panel. I tried the wireless headphones which we used in the Honda Odessy van ( I think they operate on infra red signal) and they did not work.
First, can we use a wireless headphones for the rear video in this car? if yes, Is there specific ones?
Any help is appreciated.

I also have an '04 Pacifica and when I bought it the car had one set of headphones but I needed two additional sets for my other two kids. My dealer ordered me two sets but they do not work. I have found out that the '04 had two different Entertainment systems that model year and the wireless headphones are not compatible. You'll need to find out which system you have and then you can either get them through a Chrysler dealer or find them on Ebay. I'm still waiting for my dealer to replace the two he gave me. CG

You need the 900mhz radio headphones with a scan button on them
They are wireless but not infrared
Your problem is you dealer gave you infrared not the 900 mhz model of wireless headphones
E-bay is a great place to find them
just make sure they are the "scan button model"
look for and e-bayer with over 700 feedbacks and a score of 99% or better
That way you will know they will be able to give you good advice and sell you the correct headphones.

We've got an 07 pacifica (just bought it, new) with the rear entertainment package (DVD changer, rear screen, etc). The car didn't come with a remote or headphones. The dealer said they'd order the remote, but the headphones weren't included with this package. The car came with headphone info in the glove compartment, which seems strange, if they weren't included. Does anyone know if this package included headphones?

Hello, first check rear storage area they might have headphones. Dealer should give you remote and headphones. If not tell dealer that you want to complain with dealer license with motor vechice admistration. Dealer do not like that because if they are wrong. MVA will shut them down for one month. They can not sell cars or fix the cars. Hope this help you .

Before you complain to the dealer, just make sure the package on your vehicle actually comes with the headphones. I have an '08 and I remember there being two packages available with the DVD and only one of them came with headphones. I may be wrong but before you put up a stink, make sure you deserve them. I think any good dealer would be willing to get them for you anyway just because they are not the most expensive headphones to purchase. Hope this helps!

I am having the same problem with some new headphones I bought for my 2004 Pacifica. What ever came of your situation? Should I reset them somehow? Should my old and new hedphone be exactly alike? Sorry if I sound like a rookie, I just don't know the process and am tired of listening to Shrek the Third
