I have the same head unit in my Audi. Here's what you need to know: DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On the Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In mine, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in the manner of the e-brake cycle I mentioned earlier.

Is there a way I can watch a DVD movie on my Pioneer AVIC-Z2 screen without having to put on my parking brake?


Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.

Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.

How do i bypass parkingbreak for a jensen 9311ts on mustang 99


take the parking brake wire should be pink or some funky color and hook it up to a +12 power source.
that way there is no need to use the e brake or anything for it to work

But as a word of caution all this is illegal in most states due to people not keeping their eyes on the road. ive read of people getting tickets for having disabled this security feature on their stereos. some insurance companys will not cover you if there's an accident you are involved in and you by-passed the safety feature. so before you do it, be sure to read your local laws and check with your insurance agent before doing it. you will not be happy finding things out the hard way.

Burnt DVDs


Try this (this is the procedure for the 9311TS model, which I have, and it should be the same for yours too) - put in a regular movie, and do what you need to do in order to be able to watch the movie (cycle the e-brake handle, toggle a switch - however you have it set up). When the movie comes on, using the remote, hit STOP twice, then type in 1264, and a hidden menu will appear. This menu has the macrovision toggle - turn that on. While you're in there, you can also disable the parking brake bypass (turn the bypass on - no more e-brake handle or toggle switch!). Then hit the SYS SETUP button on the remote twice to save the choices you made, and you should be able to watch the burned movie then. You'll also find that it's nice to be able to just stick a DVD in and have it start playing.

Whats the code sequence?


All you have to do to bypass your brake is insert a DVD into the dvd player. When the blue screen pops up just take your remote and press stop stop 1,2,6,4 that will bring up a manufacturer menu that you wont be able to see. Once you do that use your right joystic and press down then right that will turn the brake override on and also make the brake wire completley useless. then you want to set the region code to 1 and turn the macrovision to off. Once you do that all you have to do is press SYS SETUP on your remote control twice to save the settings. Thats it you are all set you will never have to worry about the brake again and you can watch the movie while driving but be careful if you drive eratic and get pulled over with a movie playing its a big fine. Enjoy!
