Yes, but the kids have to use the head phones. If the radio is off, then the sound for the video will come from the rear speakers.

Does anyone know the MAKE of the DVD system that is factory installed? I bought the van used and it did not come with the remote and I got a universal but need to know who makes it so I can program the remote?

Panasonic manufactured the DVD players that were in the Uplander/Relay/etc...maybe they made the older ones too?
#9 of 35 2005 Venture DVD Player

Has anyone experienced any problems with using the aux inputs to the DVD player? When I connect any device to the inputs and press the "Source" button nothing happens. The owners manual states that any external source can be viewed or listen to, when connected to the aux inputs (RCA connectors) and press the "Source" button. Track 99 should display on the radio, and it doesn't....
Anyone have any idea as to what the problem may be?
I also have a 2002 Venture Warner Bros. Edition with a DVD player that does what the owner's manual indicated. I can connect devices to the inputs without any issues. Therefore, I went ahead and replaced the DVD player in the 05 Venture with the one from 02 Venture and it works. The problem DVD player from the 05 Venture does not work in the 02 Venture. (Yes, I am able to view DVD movies on both players without any issues in both vans.) Here's the real frustration, I also went ahead and sent in the problem DVD player to a repair shop in Massachusetts, they sent me a refurbished unit, and a new unit after that, and both did the same exact thing as the original that came out of the 05 Venture. Only the player from the 02 Venture seems to work as indicated in the owners manual and technical tech specs. Amazing! I am stumped!!!
The only difference between the 02 and 05 Ventures DVD players is the labeling in front of the players; the one from the 02 Venture has "PWR/AUX" label instead of "SOURCE" as labeled for the 05 Venture DVD players. What does this mean?
#10 of 35 Chevy Venture - aftermarket DVD player
Mar 30, 2008 (9:52 am)
I have a 2003 venture. I didn't have the foreshight to get a model with a DVD player in it - it just has a CD-Radio. Now the kids are growing up, and need to be kept occupied. While I'm at it, I'd also like to upgrade the sound system for a better quality player.
The possibilities are:
- install a DVD overhead player, and use the FM modulator to get the sound from DVD/MP3 to the current radio. I'm not sure the audio quality will be good.
- replace the radio with an audio player with aux input, and just use a portable DVD player as required. I'll probably need to use the AUX input to get the DVD audio to the speakers.
I have a bias towards the second option. Venture's door chimes and airbag logic is in its radio. So, I can't just replace the radio. I'll need to buy harness and some accessories worth $200, and leave the old radio connected and hidden under the seat. Apart from the additional expense, it seems like an untidy solution.
From what I've heard, it doesn't seem possible to just add an Aux input to the existing radio. (It won't improve the sound quality, but it can be good enough for movie audio.
Any advice? It seems to me that many people must be in this position.
Whichever way I go, my wife seems to think it's an old car, and is not worth spending much on. (I see a demand for a new car coming up ). I don't believe the car is old - It drives well; and it seems like a waste to get rid of the car with only 65000 Kms on it.
