#42 of 138 2006 Video System
Jun 25, 2008 (1:19 pm)
We have an '06 Town and Country that came with the RB-1 Navigation Radio and the in dash 6 DVD Changer, it does not however have an overhead screen. I want to add an aftermarket screen (since the Mopar ones are only 7") The problem I am having is that Chrysler wants $300 for the cable from the changer to the screen. Any ideas where I can find one or even just the connector,
Thanks in advance!!!

Is it a standard type connector, such as an RCA jack, or is there more to it than that?

I wish it were that easy. It is a rectangular connector with very small pins and approx 25 or so conductors. From Mopar the part is almost $300. I've tried some junk yards but no luck so far.

Try a Google search for "MyGIG Lockpick" or "AllGIG". Those are aftermarket systems intended for the MyGIG entertainment systems but they sell a wire harness that goes between the MyGIG and an aftermarket video system, backup camera or other audio/video add-ons.
I know you don't have the MyGIG but the 25-pin connector sounds close to what they sell. They have pics on the websites of the harness and maybe you can determine from that if it's what you need. Email them for more info. From past experience I've gotten much faster response from the AllGIG website. I think the harnesses sell for around $50-70.
I'd post a link to them but my company firewall blocks me from getting there.

Did you ever get this issue resolved. We just bought a new 2008 town and country and are having a similar issue. Everything was working fine, and then this morning, turn the car on and no sound. Can't figure how to get the volume back. When turning the volume dial, we do not get that little graph showing higher and low. Curious to know if you have found out how to resolve. Granted we can bring it in for service, but would like to know if there is a quick fix. Thanks in advance

I have a 2006 Grand Caravan, with Navigation/DVD/6disc CD changer.
Is it possible to utilize the MP3 player capability, while my children are watching a movie with the wireless headphones in the back?
When I plug my MP3 player in the Aux jacks, located next to the changer, it automatically turns the movie off, and turns 'Aux' on---then the MP3 player comes through the speakers. The movie comes back on immediately after removing the Aux input jacks.
Can they be enjoyed at the same time, or am I stuck with Sirius while my kids watch a movie??

Hi all, My 2 year old son jammed some pennies into my Town and Country
dvd and cassette player. The whole system has shut down. Radio/DVD everything. does anyone know where i can get a used system? Chrysler wants 1700.00 for a new one.
Only those with 2 year olds can relate i'm sure!

Try eBay. I've see some good deals listed there in the past. Examine the seller's feedback carefully before you buy.
