    Did connecting the handbrake wire to the ground work?? Is the green wire for the handbrake specific to the deck or the car? Can you really watch movies AND change NAV points while driving now?

    IT THINKS THE PARKING BRAKE IS ON WHEN GREEN WIRE CONNECTS TO THE GROUND, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, GPS DETECTED THE CAR IS MOVING. IT WILL NOT LET YOU CHANGE NAV SETTING AND THE ANNOYING BRAKE WIRE TEMPERING LAWYER SCREEN WILL POP UP. THERE IS NO WAY TO OVERIDE IT.

Connect the hand break wire (light green) to the ground wire (black). It tells the system the hand break is up and even movies work :) .

How to bypass parking brake


  • The parking brake wire is a ground engaged when you have the parking brake on. So just ground the wire. Make it a very solid ground or it won't work. You basically changing the grounding location from the parking brake to a different ground. When you put it on a new ground it will be active anytime. Where as with the parking brake, the wire only gets a ground when the parking brake is engaged, follow?
  • As far as just bypassing it flat out as in not using the wire you can't, not for viewing the screen anyway. The ground wire is a safety feature and must be grounded somewhere to view the screen.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Parking Brake Bypass.


i would suggest not ground the cable because as you know that a signal will travel the path of least resistance. you could interfer with your ecm and that is a whole different set of problems that will cost you a ton of money to fix. there is a reason for the safety features. I know it's a real pain, but the devices were designed this way so that the liabilty issues would never come back to bite them. I know this is not what you want to hear, but please rate the solution anyway.......thanks

Some functions not working


I think you to ground the parking brake wire in order for all of you setting to illuminate. I'm not sure but I'm thinking that I had the same issue when I was installing mine.

Parking brake safety bypass


here is what you need to do is, get a toggle switch and hook one side to a ground and the other side to the parking brake wire on the unit.
use the switch as a brake because you have to set brake for a few seconds then release and set again but keep it on this time.
you will have to do this every time you start the car.

Entering new location while driving.


You can find kits to bypass the "needs the parking brake on" issue - seems to me I saw one on EBAY - my installer told me about them but they can't legally put them in when they install the unit.

Dear Sir I installed a pioneer avic-f900bt as instructed in the manuals.When I m parked the unit works ok but as soon as i drive it starts switching off and on again.I did install the handbrake wire too.


I believe this is a safety problem to prevent distractions to the driver since this unit is installed in eye sight of the driver. Parked position is fine because the parking brake is on signifying you are stopped. Once moving it should turn off multimedia functionality. Try grounding your parking brake cable to think it is always on :)
