unlock dvd on 2008 Mercedes-Benz C300

3 answersQuestion - IamHopeful 798, December 12, 2008, 18:30 '08 Mercedes C300: Does anyone know how to make the DVD player play while the car is in motion? I have an '08 Mercedes C300. It has a DVD player, but as soon as you start driving, the screen blanks out and gives you a message that you can't watch it while the car is in motion. Does anyone know the unlock code to get it to work? Please don't lecture me that it is disabled for my safety. I just want to know how to make it work. Thanks so much! :) There are other people in the car besides me who want to watch it. How is a dvd player any worse than navigation? Seriously, please don't lecture me on safety.

The multimedia systems in these newest cars are hugely complex, so I don't know of any solution for you. Maybe try a Mercedes enthusiast site? There may be some seriously knowledgeable hackers out there. One thing to look forward to? I read recently that Mercedes is working on "split-screens" that will be factory equipment in there cars and show the driver the navigation screen and the passenger a DVD.

Is driving the car not enough to keep your ADD afflicted brain occupied? I guess you enjoy texting and eating and reading behind the wheel. How about you do 1 of 2 things: A) Hire a chauffer b) Keep your fat lazy ass at home in front of your tv eating cheetos and hot pockets while playing your XBox

The rude replies are uncalled for, some of us have children that enjoy watching video on trips for example....Maybe you could think out of the box.
