I recently bought a 07 XLT with a flip-down DVD player. When I finally had a chance to test the DVD, it didn't work. I took it back to the dealer and they told me it was aftermarket but it looks like a stock install to me.
The name of the player is Artis but I don't see "Ford" at all on the unit including the label when I removed the unit.
Is this indeed aftermarket or did Artis supply the players to Ford for factory install.
Just a bit of advice...Those aftermarket DVD players are a dime a dozen. Take it to a reputable car audio installation shop. It's likely that you can get a brand new name brand unit installed for the price it'll cost to remove, assess damage, repair, and re-install what you currently have.
Since I need more than (1) Aux input and rather not use a splitter, I'd like to run the Aux from behind the stereo, if there is one rather than have wires coming out from the front Aux. Does anybody know if the stock radio (CD only, no Nav) has a rear Aux? I'd like to run under the center console to my Sirius radio and try and keep it clean.
BTW:I just saw Fearsam's truck and he has to be the King of All Media. What a set-up!
You know...I'm not sure. I yanked the stock HU on my truck 2 days into ownership for an aftermarket Pioneer. If you went the same route you have some nice options with the 1.5 DIN size.
I believe the stock HU is wired for sat radio already, so you may be in luck.
