How to bypass the "Park Wire"

Ok, This simply requires that the "Park" Wire is either Earthed out, or Taken to +12 V. To be safe you should put a 1000 ohm resistor (This will limit any current to about 12mA, drawn, if wrong) in the line to stop any bad things happening, Tap on to the relevant, Eth, or Plus and see which one works.

Either that or it gets + 12 V DC, you need to connect a low value 1000 ohm resistor in series, and use that to check, if it;s earthed -ve or taken to + 12 V DC.

How do you bypass the parking brake installation to play dvds without being in park


Well you get a resistor, 100 OHMS - 1000 OHMS or even, maybe a 12v light bulb, and connect it to either + 12 volts, or - Negative Earth, depending on how it is wired, and this will allow you to operate it...

AVX-P8DVD need to know how to bypass the parking break safty feature


Take the Park Wire, via a 100 - 1000 ohm resistor, to stop any potential damage if wrongly connected, AND this lead is taken, either to + 12 volts DC, always ON... or - 12V DC or Earth. Some also work through the Stop Lights Bulb resistance... But I am sure you get the idea.
