    VHS system replacement

    I have a 2002 EX-L and was wanting to replace the the factory VHS system with a dvd player. It has the VHS player on the floor in front of the console, in a small compartment. And has the factory flip down screen on the ceiling. Anybody know if its possible to replace the vhs with dvd?

    Sure...you can do anything with that thing that was probably installed by the previous owner. The Odyssey never came with a VHS.

    Early iVES systems did come with a VHS VCR. I'd say, open the center console up, see how the VCR is connected. If its connected with AV cables, you should be golden. Find a proper size DVD player, take out the 110 V A/C PSU out of the DVD Player, find the 12V line and connect and you'd be golden.

    it's not just av cables. I took it apart today and it has a harness with two multi-pin adapters plugged into the back of it.

    Ok. I just looked up stuff. It seems the VCP based iVES was an option offered by Honda. The vans never came with a VCP from the factory. Also, to make matters worse, it seems the system played the audio through a FM Modulator.

    I went through the Shop manual and there is no wiring information for the iVES. The wiring information for the RES is there but that won't work for your system.

    You can either use a DVD player using the AUX of the iVES or remove the VCP and the screen and go aftermarket.

    There was a DVD Based iVES too. But that too was FM modulated and again no wiring information for it either.

    If you want, you can head on over to http://www.handa-accessories.com/ and pull up installation instructions of both systems and study the figures to see if the wiring looks the same. At first blush, the wiring harnesses looked different to me.

    Unless you can find a RES Radio, the DVD player and the RES Scren along with wiring and are willing to run the wiring to the screen, the OEM RES is out of the picture for you.
