    Please Help!! Radio / DVD Wiring Nightmare...

    I bought a 2007 Escalade from a dealership in OH. After I have had it for a few months I found out that the original owner tried to mod the DVD player and Radio. I took it to Dukes here in Flint, MI and they informed me of the problem. They even showed me the mess that was left in it. It seems as they tried to mod a external wiring harness to be able to display to four head rest TV's. I would imagine that they even tried to mod the DVD player to play regular DVD's. There was wires coming out of the back of the radio that was not suppose to be there and I seem a ribbon cable that they tried to hack into for what ever reason or another. What I need help with is... I want to know if anyone knows where this mod maybe posted so that I can take a look as to what was damaged so that I can replace it with OEM parts. I will be able to grab a radio off of Ebay but the rest of what is damaged I'm still unsure. I will have to open it back up to see what all the wiring that was damaged so that I can take inventory as to what to replace.

    If anyone knows of any posted mods online for this type of hack please post a link or give me some information as to how I can see what the process was and how I can revert it. Now I have trouble with the radio abd the Nav. The radio sometimes will not come on unless I shut the car down and start it back up again. the Nav goes in and out sometimes. Now I'm starting to see few other issues.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
