Replacing a stand alone dvd receiver with this unit-wiring help needed

Just purchased this unit to replace my audiobahn stand alone dvd unit under the passenger seat of my minivan. There is the power and ground wires already in place along with the yellow video and audio RCA wires from the old unit. Seems like a simple swap of units but the instructions refer to a switching wire being needed and a parking break wire. I wish to only use this unit for DVD playback...dont care of radeo or other playback. Do I have an install nightmare here or shall I take to Best Buy and pay for an install...please advise. if easy and only need to find a switching wire...where do I find that...in the dash of where my existing stock radio is??just splice and pull under the carpet to the other wires already in place?? Any help or advise is appreciated.

No, you do not need to connect the parking break wire for the unit to be powered. My radio worked when the parking break wire wasn't attached, but you cannot watch video's or use USB without attaching it to something... you can bypass the parking break to a switch if you like.

Hi my compreesors power switch is stuck wont turn on of


Is it a stand alone unit or a mains powered unit?
If it is stand alone you might have to disconnect any battery fitted and remove the switch. Remove the wires from the back of the switch.
If it is mains powered either unplug it at the wall or remove the fuse at the main fuse panel. Replace the switch and reconnect the electric supply.

Did you test the socket for power and ground? If no power, check the splice under the driver's seat--3 white wires. If no ground, check the connection in the truck on the passenger side.

Power Seat


The passenger seat has a separate drive system. Check and make sure all the electrical connections are proper. Sometimes the switch goes bad. You can "Carefully" take the switch out of the side of the seat and check the continuity of the switch. It also could be shorted out because some lame brain crammed something under the seat and broke the ground wire. You did not mention what kind of a car you are driving. So, maybe the answer is all wrong. A loose ground wire can cause the seat not to work.

Driver side window wont roll up


Could be the motor. I would try seeing if the ground came loose. Same thing happened to my passeneger window. I reconnected the ground and it works like it never quit. Try the wiring under the passenger and driver seat. The ground for the passenger window in my car was under the passenger seat.

Hello, I purchased a set of Pyle Headrest Dvd's for my 2004 Nissan Armada and the instruction are not that easy to understand on how to install it. Do you know where I can get the instruction or can you...


Yeah, Ive come across too many so called instructions that are pure ****. Normally, the stand alone units have one RCA for video input and power/ground. Simply run single RCA to each with switched power and solid ground. Some have muli video inputs too for video/game ect... Contact Pyle for wire color issues.

My 95 Jeep GC's little display computer goes blank.


I don't remember that being a very common problem for the Vehicle Information Center. Sounds like you may need to replace the unit to solve it. But try this first. Most of the dash circuit grounds are actually grounded under the drivers seat under the carpet. I was dealing with some dash electrical issues for my friend. She didn't realize she had over a inch of standing water under the carpet. The harness was laying in water. The carpet is pretty water tight so the water didn't evaporate.(I found an hole in the firewall for an accessory that was not longer there) Try to feel under the carpet and see if it is wet. If so pull the seat, get the carpeting pulled up and get dried out. Then make sure clean those grounds.
