Easy, Plug and Play

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When upgrading to an aftermarket DVD deck in my Tahoe, I thought I would definitely lose the usage of the stock rear monitor. I was told about this wiring harness that enables you to keep the Panasonic screen.

I ordered and harness came within two days with FREE SHIPPING to HAWAII!! Installed over weekend and took only minutes. It is basically plugging A/V plugs into aftermarket deck and plugging harness to existing for the rear screen unit.

A MUST for those who want to retain the usage of the rear screen. My kids LOVE it and are happy.

Pros: None

Cons: So simple, pretty much anyone could install.

Mission accomplished! Rear DVD/headphones on

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This part was installed in a 2008 Cadillac Escalade. This vehicle started with the
AM/FM/CD/DVD player in dash with no navigation. In essence, the rear DVD
player was just a monitor with integrated IR headphones.

I installed a Kenwood DNX6140 in this vehicle which has dual output capability.
After installing the new head unit and the factory adaptors the rear DVD screen
would get power, but no picture/no IR headphones.

The awesome team at Crutchfield (huge props to Grant!) found this new part
and sent it to me. It works great. The rear monitor is now working as are the

Two important notes for this part. The first is that I only used one of the two
output connections on this part. You could use this same part to control to rear
monitors instead of one. Secondly, This part allows you to retain the rear
console inputs IF your head unit has enough aux inputs. I was not able to
retain the rear aux inputs as there wasn't another AV/Audio input available on
the head unit. Be sure to check your head unit out to ensure it will have
enough inputs if you want to retain the rear console inputs.

Lastly, the 4 out of 5 stars is due only to the limited instructions that come
with the part. PAC does a great job but better illustrations and instructions
would have helped.
