Question about JC Whitney - Pyle 7" Tft/lcd In-dash Monitor With Am/fm Receiver, Tv Tuner And Cd Changer Controls Car Video Player
I just got a 7 in touchscreen Pyle dvd player installed and didnt know it would not play while in drive...is there a way to bypass this or does it have to be grounded? please help!! Im sorry i dont have the model number on me
There should be an extra wire on your wiring harness, labeled for the e-brake light. Find that one. On my Jensen, it's a peach colored wire. In your manual, take a look and see what it says is required for activating the DVD playback feature. If you simply have to pull the brake handle to make it work, then yes, just ground that wire and you're in business.
On my Jensen, there was a sequence that had to be done - the brake had to be applied, released, and reapplied for it to work. What I did initially was to ground the wire and put a switch inline on it. To simulate setting the ebrake, I'd close the switch (completing the ground), then flip it open to break the connection (same as releasing the brake), then flip it back again, and the DVD would play.
I found a little while ago that there is a hidden feature menu on the player that allows the e-brake sequence to be bypassed with a code, which I put in and now it's not an issue.
Take a look at your instruction manual and let me know if it just has to have the e-brake on, or if there's some sort of activation sequence like my Jensen has, and I can firm up the answer.
