Game connections - February 15th 2019 7:31 am

I have a '01 Chevy Express Regency Conversion van that has game connections built in for a Nintendo 64 game system. (Yeah kinda ancient I know) I'm not a gamer myself but my kids tell me it's an old game system. So my question is does anyone here have this same system in your van, and if so do you happen to know anything about it ? There are controller connections on a panel along with headphone connections on each side of the rear couch, as well as the by the left side passenger area. I've looked around everywhere in the van but I see no game system anywhere. Maybe this was an uninstalled option ? Additionally, there is a spot in the roof where it appears there would have been a flip down tv installed but instead there is just a vinyl panel. So I'm thoroughly confused (as usual) If anyone has this system, or knows anything about it, please let me know. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

The Nintendo 64 was out from 1996-2002, so it's quite possible a few conversion vans had these plugged into them. You can find them at just about any pawn shop/thrift store if you want to put one back in. But if the TV was already removed in your van, it would likely be more work than its worth. You could follow the controller connections back and see what wiring is at the end.

You're right Jason, it probably is more work than it's worth. If their was one in there it would rarely get used anyhow. But come springtime and warmer weather, I shall trace the wires to see where they lead to anyway. Thanks for responding to my post. Happy vanning.😎

I just put a few systems into mine. Kept it simple though, just using shore power and controllers directly attached when you want to play
