:confused: My DVD player makes a loud motor noise when I turn the key to start the engine. This is before the dash even lights up. I'm not sure if its a coincidence but it seems to happen more when its cold, like first thing in the morning. If I shut off the car and remove the key it stops after about 5 seconds, then I start the engine and its ok. Has anyone experienced this? I do have a factory remote starter and it happens when I use that too.

"Loud" is in the ear of the beholder, but if you turn off the car with the DVD set to play on the front monitor and/or have the audio set to AUX/RSE, it is normal for the DVD to spin as soon as the car is powered back on.

Unless the DVD is making abnormal noises or if it's spinning for no reason at all (powered off, not selected to front monitor, and audio set to another source), then you have a problem.

Is there a disk in there? What happens when there isn't?

We don't have a disk in ours, and I don't notice any sounds.

I suspect you have either a jammed disk, or jammed mechanism and it's trying to load/eject.
