    I was told that there is a Brown wire that needs to be disconnected. I don't know which or where YET!!!

    It must be the wire telling the NAV that the car is in gear. I had a similar issue with my Toyota and I found out that cutting one wire solves everytihg. So, where is that wire?

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

    OK Fellow Caddiers, over in the SRX Forum, we've got the "crack"--IF your NAV system is a Denso like ours is. (yours might not be)

    Push & hold the musical note for at least 3 seconds to get to the "code" screen. Enter 1791 and hit ENTER. Now, if you remove your NAV DVD and insert a DVD movie, it'll play all the way to TIMBUCKTOO! Remember, though, this is ILLEGAL!

    Now we're working on a way to use all the route menu while moving. By the way, the "cut-out" is NOT wires, it's part of the speed sensor system.

    Come on over to our forum to sign up for the # volunteering! We need all the help we can get.

    Hooray,



    It also works in California.



    Now to the code for keeping the NAVís attention while the car is rolling.

    I want to try the DVD code in my XLR but would like to hear more from others first.

    A book on ALL the codes would be GREAT!

    kg, That's all she wrote!! I believe you also have the Denso system. It works! However, you have to re-enter it after you shut off the car.

    Sure would make for a small book! Page 1: 1791; Page 2: The End.

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

    I have a 2003 CTS with NAv and the code override does not seem to work for the DVD player ??? An other idea on how to override the safety controls for watching DVD's while driving?? Does the car have to be on or off to get to the Code Screen??

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

    In the CTS, up to model year 2004, you can watch video DVDs while in motion. There is a bypass for this on the internet, but you have to activate it after every ignition cycle.
    For model year 2005 there is no bypass.
    The navigatio unit uses the Class2 data bus to receive and send information. One message on the Class2 bus PRNDL status. When the BCM or ECM sends a "Park" message it is picked up by the nav unit and processed internaly alowing video DVD playback.
    As soon as the vehicle goes into Reverse, Neutral or Drive the BCM or ECM sends the appropriate message over the Class2 bus and the nav unit stops video DVD playback, althou on some model you still get DVD audio.
    Can this be bypassed? Yes. Is it worth it? No
    You can generate a "Park" message and send it over the Class2 bus, from an authorized address, and filter the "RNDL" message.
    You can also disconect the Class2 data bus from the nav unit and generate your own messages to alow the unit to operate but you will miss many things like Temperature, Chimes, BOSE amp control .....

    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?

    I have an '05 CTS-V and have no problem watching dvd's while the car is in motion. There is a trick to it and you do have to do it everytime, but it sure is great watching on the factory system without any modifications. If anyone would still like to know how let me know.
