Question about Boss AUDIO SYSTEMS BV9055 Car DVD Player
I have just purchased a new Boss BV9055 unit. I wanted to power up the unit before installing it to be sure everything in the unit is working correctly. I connected the unit directly to the 12 volt car battery with jumper leads / 1 lead to the car ground and the other to the red lead on the Boss. The problem is, is that the unit will not turn on when I push the power button. I know the circut is complete as I have check it with a volt meter. Is there anything else I need to connect to power up this unit? I realize I will not get any functions I just want to be sure the unit is functional before I install it in the dash.
Thanks for any suggestions!
12/29. I actually figured this one out myself after reading posts concerning parking brake over rides. It turns out that the Boss BV9055 will not powerup if the pink parking brake wire from the units wiring harness is not grounded. Once I grounded that pink parking brake wire the unit did power up.
