anyone have issues with your warranty after putting in backupcamera/DVD player?
We wanted to put in a aftermarket DVD player, back up camera, and radio----but my husband has heard that it will effect your warranty.....has anyone had any issues with this?

Re: anyone have issues with your warranty after putting in backupcamera/DVD player?
The answer will purely depend upon the quality of the installation.
If they butcher the job of drilling a hole for the camera wiring, then the rust-penetration warranty *in that area* may be compromised.
If they damage things running wires from the rear to front, then any collateral damage won't be covered.
The front unit installation *should* just be a "drop-in", but if they make all sorts of poorly thought-out cuts and splices in the wiring, then anything's possible in terms of damage that won't be warranty covered. (does your Sprinter already have a radio? If so, the new installation will (or should) use that connector, and the warranty should be safe).
Choose a reputable shop that provides its own good warranty, one that includes later-discovered damage to the vehicle.
