Ground the wire somewhere inside the dash, to a metal support piece. If this doesn't work, you may need a switch on the ground wire to allow you to apply and break the ground connection per some activation pattern (my Jensen requires the ground to be on, then off for 3-5 seconds, then back on, so I toggle the switch appropriately).

Cant play dvd says parking brake on screen


you can not play dvd's when the car is not in park with the e brake on. I"m assuming it was factory installed or by a dealership??? they hook a line from it to your brake sensor. it's illegal to watch movies while you're driving. so long as theyre behind your seat and out of your view theyre legal, otherwise they hook it to your brakes.

What color wire do i hook the pink wire to


Pink wire is generally the parking brake safety. If you dont want the dvd player to play video while in drive wire it to the ground on your parking brake sensor wire. If you do want it to play video while your driving, wire it directly back to the ground wire on your stereo.

My lanzar sd31mu says that i cant play a DVD while i drive I want to know what to do. Thank you.!


there is a wire that goes to the parking break warning light switch, simply disconnect to watch while you drive, but this may be illegal so I would say don't do it, not to mention dangerous.

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving


On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

HEEEEEELP!!


this wire is designed to be grounded when oparking brake is on this is so you cannot watch dvd while driving as that is illegal. Some people wire this up on a toggle switch to a ground so they can flip the switch and make it work whenever they want. I cannot tell you to just wire this to a ground as that would be illegal!!!!!! ;) supposed to wire it to the switch on park brake this wire grounds when brake is on

Hooking stereo to parking brake


Don't even bother hooking it up to the e-brake. You can bypass the e-brake. Take the peach-colored wire and ground it to metal inside the dash. Put a toggle switch inline on the wire and mount it somewhere you can reach it. When you get the blue screen when starting a movie, open the switch for 3-5 seconds, then close it again to reapply the ground. Your movie will start up, and you can then drive away with it playing. The bonus is that you can play a DVD while driving, and you also don't have to worry about tapping into the wrong wire and potentially damaging the head unit.
