Auto DVD system question

In my Tahoe I have an aftermarket DVD system. The thing worked fine for years, then the FM transmitter just stopped working.

Where in the hell would I even start chasing down the problem?

So you stopped getting sound? i'd use a multimeter to check audio input at the wire going to the fm modulator. If you turn up a dvd loudly, a meter will read ac voltage. Chances are your FM modulator went bad, assuming nothing crazy happened like a cable getting unplugged, etc.

90% chance, it'll be one of these: http://www.cartoys.com/products/prod...:referralID=NA

and that's exactly what I'd put back in it.

FM transmitter turned off in menu.
Plastic twist together type fuse holder exploded causing power to modulator to be disconnected.

Transmitter was on.

Regardless, that bitch is gone now, so no worries

If I have a monitor/dvd what do you charge to install?
