Just bought Excursion, DVD went out

My DVD player died after only having the truck for 3 weeks. I tried to replace it with one from an Expedition, but it uses a different wiring plug, even though the drive itself fits. I checked eBay, no excursion DVD players. Anyone have a source for them? I thought about splicing my own harness, but it seems they may use some special protocols for communication with the factory CD-6 head unit. I have the part number from the old DVD drive, but a google search yields no results.

Andrew, The Ex I bought has a 6-disc player and I might be selling it. Send a photo of your connection plug and I'll compare it to what I have. Romeo Sierra Pablo Igloo Charlie Kilo Egg Roger (add these three letters) ing at gulftel dot com

You didn't rock my boat at all, Gary. I just never use the DVD or CD players in any of the cars or trucks that I buy, so they just sit there and gather dust.

When I sell the truck, the player might add $100 to the value. If you can get yours fixed cheaper, that's good. If you want to try mine, that's fine too.

Just bought an Excursion yesterday and the DVD player is some giant aftermarket POS. What is a decent brand that wont break the bank? My kids are bummin. Plus it doesnt appear to be mounted the right way, it looks like its trying to pull the headliner down. Any help would be great!
