    Thanks for the reply....I did some more searching and found out some more info about the process found at Reed's Place

    http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answers/dvdmotion.html

    The key is to perform the button mash twice...the first time you will get the cold reset screen...that's O.K. it's supposed to do that...just do the button sequence again and the movie will still be playing...release the parking brake and viola...rolling DVD enjoyment. Some folks have stated that the headlamp switch can't be in the auto position but mine worked in both settings. Just remember KEEP YOUR EYES TO THE JOB AT HAND WHILE DRIVING.... have fun. "V"s ROCK

    Hey Brother...I searched this and other forums for the better part of a week...there are at least 3 other forums that mention this subject...some of us were bothered enough to perform a search. I just asked for some help and some clarification on the process as I was performing the steps correctly but was too stupid to realize it was correct. I understand your frustration, if there wasn't so many other threads about the same thing then my search would have been easier. But Santa brought me a V and I can watch my DVD so have fun and....Merry Christmas

    Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    There is now a seller on Ebay selling an override system for 07 Escalade. Search ebay for item no 150071452818 or seller id boggy111. It is about $600. Company name is Platinum Mobile in NY at 718-339-0099. I wrote one buyer who said it took an hour to install and worked fine. Wish I could get a referral fee but really, just passing on what I found as I appreciate all of you who do the same.

    Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    I read a few pages of this thread and thought I might know something you could try -
    my friend bought an aftermarket in-dash monitor with dvd, etc. I wired it all in for him. There was a wire that was supposed to run to the parking brake. Only problem, we wanted it to work all the time, another problem, too much of a pain in the ass to get the wire down to the parking brake. I figured out how this mechanism works - when the parking brake is engaged, 12 volts (common electrical current for almost if not all car accessories) is used to send a signal to several things in the car - light on dash or in instrument cluster to tell you the parking brake is on, etc. since it only played when the wire was receiving 12 volts from the engaged parking brake.

    THE FIX - I went to the wiring harness for the monitor - unwrapped the electrical tape and soldered the wire onto the 12 volt positive wire and re-taped. Works like a charm all the time now.

    Cool Re: DVD Nav Override? (I wanna play movies!)

    ALSO plays DVDs, I thought I was in heaven!

    You see, the only way I can get my wife to quiet down
    for a long road trip is to stick a movie in front of her.
    She's like a kid. Anything more than 30 minutes and
    she starts bitching.

    Anyway, I discovered quickly that you can only play
    movies when the transmission is in "PARK". Bummer.

    However, I completely understand Cadillac's thinking
    on this. It's a no-brainer. ("LOCAL MAN FLIES-OFF
    BRIDGE WHILE WATCHING MATRIX DVD - GMC SUED" ...etc)

    But for us RESPONSIBLE drivers, there HAS to be a 'trick'
    to overriding the system. I'd like to avoid buying a
    portable DVD player if possible.

    Is there a way to allow your passenger to watch DVDs
    while the cars moving?

    C'mon you hackers! Whaddya got?
    To watch a movie in my 04 CTS I put in movie and let it begin to play. Car is running and in park, on the right of the screen push the second to the bottom(radio preset) button and the rectangular seek/cd discskip button forward>(push to the right) at the same time and hold for 2 sec. Drive Safe... I have heard different variations work on diff. cads. Try preset then push forward seek or seek then preset. Hope it works!
