Installing the screen and housing is no different than a standard CD player, but a DVD player will also have a breakout box, or brain that will also need to be installed in the vehicle. Your player, the Jensen vm9511ts (I'm guessing the "3" was an accident) should come will all of this. The brain, in the lower right of the picture, will be a bit bigger than they make it out to be in that picture, it'll be about the size or a little smaller than the actual head unit just not as thick. You should get plenty of wire length in the box to install the brain in the trunk or under a seat. The brain does get warm though so make sure you don't put it somewhere where it's going to overheat. You'll also need to install the tv antenna if it's included, but that's pretty simple. Here is another picture of all the other stuff, I couldn't find any pictures of the actual wire harness that should be included that runs from the head unit to the brain but here and here are pictures of my Kenwood brain installed, it should be somewhat similar to the Jensen unit.
Ok, well the vm9311ts should be pretty similar to the 95, except you won't have the TV tuner antenna to deal with. Just be sure you don't make the brain too hard to get to in case you want to add an AV/Source, or anything like that.
yea im gonna end up buying it from sonic electronix...site looks alot better and it includes alot more details on what im getting...gives me more comfort =) lol ..its like 10$ more but im getting the i pod plug for it too so im saving shipping cause im doing it all in one shot from one site..but yea i would DEFF rather install it myself than pay 130...now im probably gonna have to buy somethings like a wire harness right? what am i gonna need...i have an aftermarket radio in already..dual makes mine..so i shouldnt need a bracket right? what else would i need to install>?
If you already have an aftermarket deck, you should already have a harness installed so you may be able to cut and re-match the wires from it if you're careful depending on how it was installed. If not, then you'll need a new harness (which I would generally reccomend anyway) which will plug into the factory harness from your car and then be wired to the harness coming from your new HU. Other than that, if you're happy with the mounting kit your current deck uses then you won't need one of those and your new deck should come with everything else you'd need unless the antenna adapter is different for some reason.
hey i just bought a jensen vm9511ts, its a diff model but very similar. i have a stock unit in my car right now so im wondering what else i will need to buy... wiring harness, mounting kit... anything else? do i even need those?
mwyant, you'll need a car specific wire harness, car specific install kit, and probably a car specific antenna adapter depending on the car. Post the make, model and year of your car and we can probably give you direct links to the products you'd need.
I had a feeling it wasn't going to be something super simple like an 02 Civic, I'm just glad you didn't say '07 VW. Anyway, you should be able to do a search on the web for "2005 Hayundai Elantra ______" and just put in Dash Kit, Wire Harness or antenna adapter and you'll get a buch of results. The problem is, with newer cars you tend to run into issues that make install more difficult like oddly designed dash openings or factory "upgraded" audio systems. If you want to be certain it'll fit, you can go down to Best Buy or Circuit City or any actual relieable install place in your area, tell them the car you have and they should have the install stuff on hand. If you want to save some money just jot down the part numbers and then search for those online. I'd give you direct links to products but honestly it's a bit tougher to find stuff that I can tell you for sure will fit that particular car. You may also want to search around for an Elantra message board. That will probably have all the info you'd need as well. Sorry I can't be more specific, somebody else may chime in with part numbers for you.
How U doing guys??? well i need help installing my jensen VM9311TS well the problem is that i dont have the instructions and i need help with the pink cable well is the parking cable. well my problem is that i dont know where it goes n i need to install my dvd player ASAP... guys if u know how i would thank you so much...
I have everything hooked up right, well as far as i know...
I did cut and rematch the wires, and taped them up, every color is the same, and I have the battery, ground and ACC exactly how it should be. But I'm getting absolutely no power to the jensen at all...I mean, nothing... it wont even turn on.
I dont know wtf to do with that media module thing. And i did have it plugged into the cd player itself, and i noticed (from what i see of the little light) that its not getting power either. Anyone know what the problem could be?
Cody, I don't know if you've figured it out yet, but did you match the colors from the stock wiring harness or did you buy an after market adapter for your vehicle? The colors of the wires from the stock wiring harness won't match the after market stereo, so you will have to use an after market wiring harness adapter.
I bought the VM311TS.. And i own a 1997 Mercedes Benz C280. I have no idea how to install it and i lost the directions. But i am positive i dont want to pay the 150$ or whatever it is to have it installed. So can anyone give me directions to do it myself?
wow i see you guys write eachother like months later so ill go ahead and try to help you out incase you still need it, check all your fuses.. i mean all... than test your power wires with a Multi-meter.. most likely your system is amplified... whooaa sorry buddy, REWIRE!! looking at about $200 for that plus installation for the unit, dam mercedes =]
