Hello Pete,
this is the first DVD Player, also factory Player installed. The DVD Player said " Error DVD Format. I know USA and Canada have code 1. But I in Switzerland have code 2. I am the second owner from the Montana. I think the DVD Player ist never used.
Sorry for my english.

O.k.,this may need programmed by a GM dealer to alter any coding as most of the time this is needed.In some cases the actual DVD player itself may need replaced with a compatible one in your area.A GM dealer can also tell you if this is what needs done but I believe this is a reprogram issue that needs done by a dealer with their computer or the dvd player may need replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
