Need to bypass 06 Infinity factory dvd player to watch dvd while in drive
If your system is tied to the parking brake, check and see (Technical Manual) if the parking brake works at 5 volts instead of 12. Usually this is the case. If so you will need to locate that wire and cut it. (May void warrranty) Next you will need to get a voltage regulator from Radio Shack, This will require some soldering. Solder per the instructions to a switch. Make sure the switch is in the off position and start the car. When you get the splash screen flip the switch. The DVD player will see the 5 volts as the parking brake being engaged and allow it to be viewed.
An alternative would be to again, follow the wire, cut it, put one end to the chasis and a switch. Again make sure the switch is off and turn the car on. When the DVD player starts, flip the switch. This only works if your system is designed to see the wire as being grounded and then not.
You can not simply attach the wire to the chasis and go from there. You can test this be starting the DVD player, disconnecting the wire and connecting it again to the chasis. If the DVD plater starts, you have found your solution and only need a switch.
