Re: Bypassing the parking brake feature

You can also bypass by connecting the black ground wire and purple bypass wire together , then connect them to the ground wire from the wiring harness.

How do i bypass the parking brake feature on my jensen vm9324

Bypassing the EBrake wire is not a good idea. Should you have an accident as a result of watching moving video in the view of the driver (illegal in ALL 50 states) your insurance company will NOT pay the claim. God forbid there is a fatality, then you are going to be charged with Manslaughter as a result of inproper equipment. Best bet is to connect the PINK wire to the vehicle's parking brake.

How to bypass parking brake to watch videos on boss bv7940

***DISCLAIMER*** The parking break switch in your in-car video player is a safety feature that is required by law, bypassing or disabling this switch is NOT recommended by any means. The answer I am providing is for informational purposes, neither fixya or myself are responsible for any consequences of the use of the information herein.
there are two ways to do this, there are marketed products designed to do this that come with a few parts and an instructional dvd. Or you may purchase simply a toggle switch, and some wire, and do the following.
There is a wire connected from the back of the dvd player deck to the parking break indicator bulb or wire on the dashboard (the light that comes on when your parking break is on). This wire can be disconnected from the parking break lamp and attached to a toggle switch, and then to a power source (12v+). With most manufacturers there is a "code" to enable video. Generally it's something to the effect "turn the parking break on for 1 second, off for one second, and then back on, and leave it on". Whatever the code is for your unit, you may now do the same with your switch to activate video.

Is there a way I can watch a DVD movie on my Pioneer AVIC-Z2 screen without having to put on my parking brake?

Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.

Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.

Normally, the emergency/parking brake has to be activated/engaged for the video player to operate.

By bypassing, you are simulating this condition even if in reality, the emergency/parking brake is not activated/engaged.

Solution > ground the video player's brake sensor wire rather than connect it to its intended connection point.

In some brands/model/versions of the video player, this would be light green (Pioneer, Clarion, JVC), green (Kenwood),

In some other rands/model/versions of the video player, there would be a bypass switch underneath a sticker, others would need a special adapter, still others have bypass option/feature in the menu/setup and some would require a toggle switch that would connect the dvd brake wire from positive to ground.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. A reminder pls, in some regions bypassing is not allowed.

Good luck and kind regards.
