    I just purchased an oem dvd player and while it was being uninstalled it was cut from the head liner above the drivers side by the vent ducts. I know the harness has 3 wires. Can someone help me configure these wires as well as letting me know if I have a sunroof will the mounting bracket fit.

On the parking brake under the dash is a switch at the top that actuates the parking brake light. On most vehicles most are two wire switches, but some are one wire switches. If you have a two wire switch then you can unplug it and use a test light with the ignition turned on without starting the vehicle and test the wires to see which is the hot wire and then connect to the one that has no voltage on it because it is the ground for the switch. The wire is used to detect the parking brake position as engaged before it will allow viewing of the DVD player when the vehicle is not moving. When the brake is off the DVD player will not play DVDs, this is a safety measure so the driver will not be distracted while driving. Good Luck, RAC

How can I play all DVDs on the DVD player?


The DVD player maybe locked to a region, to make the player regionless so it can play DVDs from any region the player need the firmware changed.
But if you make a mistake then the player will be a piece of junk.

You can do like I did installing it in my 04 Civic Hybrid - find another wire that supplies a constant +5VDC and then it will believe the parking brake is always engaged and allow video. It's not legal to watch video while driving, but in my case, there was a wire bundle of around 30 or 40 wires harnessesd together that I wasn't about to jack with.

Also note that Clarion will not warranty any self installed NX or NZ 409 units. Something I hadn't realized when I got mine off e-bay.

Disc Region eror


you may have a different region on you dvd to your dvd player. say your dvd player was 1st region you can only play 1st region dvds if you try a 2nd or 3rd region dvd it would not work. you can go to a dvd specialist to get it tuned to a multiregion dvd player.
go to a dvd player shop and ask if they know how to tune it.
