P.I.E. FRDN-DVD Rear-seat DVD Factory Integration Adapter
Retains factory rear seat DVD system in select 2003 Ford and Lincoln vehicles with "World" connectors
Our take on the P.I.E. FRDN-DVD Rear-seat DVD Factory Integration Adapter by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
Precision Interface Electronics' FRDN-DVD adapter lets you retain use of the factory-installed DVD system in select 2003 Ford-built vehicles when you install an aftermarket receiver. Connect it to your new receiver's auxiliary input, and you'll hear the audio from your factory DVD system over your vehicle's speakers. The FRDN-DVD is designed for vehicles with 20-pin World-style radio connectors. Warranty: 1 year.
Important note: The aftermarket radio you install must have an auxiliary input if you wish to play DVD sound through the vehicle's speakers. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
P.I.E. FRDN-DVD Rear-seat DVD Factory Integration Adapter Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The PIE FRDN-DVD is a Ford connector DVD retention harness. The FRDN-DVD will allow you to replace your Ford factory head-unit and retain the audio and power to your OEM DVD player. With the FRDN-DVD, the audio from the Ford OEM DVD player can be connected to the auxiliary input (if equipped) of your aftermarket radio to allow the DVD audio to be heard over the vehicle's audio system. (Infrared headphones will no longer work with this system.) The FRDN-DVD harness consists of a molex-plug on one end which connects to your vehicle's factory plug, and stereo RCA audio male connectors on the other end (requires audio cable) which connect to your aftermarket head unit's rear-panel AUX input . There is also a red, 12-volt accessory wire which must be hardwired.
Note: If the aftermarket head unit is only equipped with a front-panel auxiliary input, then you will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter cable (sold separately).
Compatibility: The FRDN-DVD is designed for select 2003 vehicles with 20-pin "World" style connectors. Compatibility for the FRDN-DVD includes the following vehicles.
- 2003 Ford Expedition (Excluding Navigation)
- 2003 Lincoln Navigator
