If what you want is to hear the DVD audio through your system speakers all you have to do is put the dvd in and on your radio face press mode button until it says dvd. Or i canscan my manual and email it to you.

X2 for the manual, I can hear radio up front while the kids watch a movie, listen to a CD or the radio in my 04.
The VES has access to the head unit to the fearure that is not in use by the head unit. If I listen CD you can control the radio from the VES.

I NEED help with my VES system in my 05 Dodge Durango
I need someone to help me I bought a 05 Dodge durango with a VES dvd system in it and I can not get the voice to play through the radio and my durango did NOT have headphones and no MANUAL please someone help me ???????????
I also recently acquired a 2005 Durango that came with VES, no manual, and no headphones. I've since found a manual (the links in this thread no longer work): I can email you the PDF file if you like -- just send me an email (click on "ScottVan" above this message to see that option) and I'll send you the PDF.
Note that in 2005 some Durangos had the IR wireless headphones and some had the RF wireless headphones. The manual I have is for the VES with the RF headphones, but I'd assume the system with the IR headphones is quite similar.
I also got replacement headphones from my Dodge dealer. Dodge part no. for RF headphones is 4685936AE (part no. for IR headphones is 5064037AA).
If your stock radio/CD player is the same as mine (6 CD changer, AM/FM), then there is a "MODE" button just to the right of the power/volume ****. While a DVD is playing, press this until "DVD" shows up as the audio source.
Note that if you also need an owner's manual for the vehicle, which might help with the sound system in general, I found one free online as a PDF (but I also bought a printed one on Ebay): go to http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html.
Just bought an 05 durango slt with a VES dvd system and a RF wireless headphones. I have no manual as well and I am unable to get the audio to play through the stereo speakers. I hit the mode button on the stereo dash and it only alternates between CD and FM/AM. Tried troubleshooting this for hours and no luck. If anyone has a manual they can send me or could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
I just bought an 05, also, and did not get the manual. I was playing around and noticed you can set the FM frequency it broadcasts on. I set it to 88.5 and turned the radio to that station. The DVD audio was playing through the sound system.
I have a red vertical stripe running down the middle of the screen. Anyone know what would cause that?
A few days ago my radio speakers stopped working, however the radio appears to work, as it is showing the channels and song wording is scrolling across the front. This radio is the standard one that come with the truck. Does anyone have a solution? Or have the same problem

I have a VES DVD player for my newly purchased 2005 Dodge Durango and I can not get the sound to play through the speakers. I have looked at all manuals and notice that you simply have to hit MODE on the radio dial until it says VES or DVD. When I hit mode on the radio it only goes to SAT and says CH. It will not give me any other options. Everything else on the radio works. Anyone have any thoughts?
