 Need help DVD installation plan

OK, totally new to this. I have a Town and Country and I want to install a DVD system. I've purchased a PYLE 13" dropdown monitor & tuner, a fm modulator and a mobile dvd player and I need help figuring out how to set it up, how easy/difficult is the installation and approx how much it would cost to install. Thanks

To answer your question more info is needed. When you say mobile DVD player, do you mean an in-dash or under-seat model. If it is in-dash, you may run into problems if there is not enough room. My guess is that you plan to use the stock sound system that came with the T@C, hence the need for an fm modulator (those are pretty straight forward to install). Likewise, an under-seat type DVD player is pretty easy to install as well. The trickiest thing is finding a suitable spot for the remote eye that is needed for remote control functions and then mounting it. By far, the most difficult part of your install will be the 13" screen. My advice to you is that if you have not had a lot of experience installing mobile electronics, I would pay someone to have this part of the job done. THis is NOT the kind of job to "cut your teeth" on. The roofliner will need to be removed, wires run down your A-pillar, and likely many small alterations to your car. A job like that will probably run you a minimum of $200 at a respectable shop. Hope this helps.

When getting quotes from car audio shops, make sure the installers are MECP 1st Class Certified or better yet, Master Certified. Most good shops will charge you $35-$45 per hour. I would not trust this installation to the so-called "I know what I'm doing" installer due to some cosmetic work that has to be done, as well as running your wires well. Definately go with a shop that has good references and certified installers. Remember, when dealing w/ anything in car audio/video that you "get what you pay for" when it comes to installation.

the LCD is the hard part, Ive installed many and each one is still a pain in the butt, usually anythign over 7" requires lots of modifacation to the headliner and such so I dont suggest doing it yourself unless youve done it several times before.
