Let me try to make things a bit more clear:

-Bought car and dvd wasn't working. Did some readings and found that 3 fuses are involved. fuse behind the dvd player, checked it and was good but no power. Fuse in rear trunk passenger side, one was blown, and fuse on rear trunk driver side spot#4 and there was none there.

-Changed the blown fuse and inserted a fuse on the empty slide on rear passenger.

-changed battery on remote. was able to power the monitors in headrest.

-Center console dvd unit had few buttons that were lit green. couldn't get anything else to play, tried to insert a cd in the unit but it didn't make any attempts to take the cd.

-moved the wires behind the dvd player unit few times and lost all power, no more lit monitors or dvd unit, checked fuses again and all were good, still no power behind dvd player. took console apart.

there is a black box which the dvd player harness connects to, had only one positive coming out among all wires. took the harness out and removed the cable from the black box, now there is no juice from any of the wires.

-i did this because many on forums say that the harness is bad and needs changing, but there is no power coming from this black box.

-digged on ebay and found that they are sold along with another module:

-am trying to find out whether this module is bad or am i missing fuse anywhere else. puzzled to why i was able to power the unit and headrests and not anymore.

Since my wire diagrams do not appear to match, per your review, then its best I opt out and let another help.
