That seems odd. Why did they disable it?

They disabled it completely or just so that it won't work while you're driving? DVD/video players are required to be hooked up the the emergency/parking brake so that they will only show a video while the brake is set. That way the driver can't be distracted by the video and potentially cause an accident.

There are ways around it, if you choose to do it so that you can drive and have it playing at the same time. DISCLAIMER: I am NOT telling you to do it, just that it can be done.

Put your Jeep in "PARK", insert a DVD and enjoy.

Just be aware that it is against the law in at least 35 states to have a video player visible to the driver. Also be aware any discussion of illegal activity of any type is not permitted on the forum.

Take it to the dealer and tell them to fix it. It should work with the brake set.

I have tried putting the parking brake with it in reverse and first gear - still no DVD play menu. Does any know if the state of Connecticut requires the DVD video to be disabled with in dash players. I had a 2011 wrangler and it played videos now I have a 2012 wrangler and it does not play videos :-/

Ct has restrictions regarding in-car video playback. You would have to contact the state police department to find out what they are specifically.

Not to mention the fact that your DVD will look crummy on that screen.

I found it funny that I had graduated from low resolution LCDs a few devices ago just to see one come back in my Jeep.

Wait 'til your lights are out for a week in January. Then sitting in a 430N and heated seats equipped JK is a blast. Watched the newer Star Trek movie and enjoyed the warmth for a couple of hours.

We lost power for 5 days in the October snow storm and we use the power outlet in the Jeep to blow up our air mattress so we could sleep in front of the fire place
