Mute keeps activating by itself

I hooked up all the wiring, turned my car on and the screen came out and the cd started play. but for some reason the mute icon would show up on the screen and the sound would fade in and out of mute. and it wont stop. i didnt hook up the radio because it doesnt have the right plug for my car but when i put it on radio the mute still activated

    Do you have a switch so that you can watch videos while driving or did you put in a bypass code to over ride the system or can you only watch videos when you have the car on handbrake?

Easy guys ill explain, if you pull the deck out and expose the wiring in the back you will see a small pink wire with a plastic and metal end, that wire is your parking break bypass wire,wut i did with my car was created a switch, its very easy, all you need to do is go to radio and purchase a ON/Off switch, it will have only two metal connector ends on that switch, basically all ya gotta do is find a suitable grounding spot for the negative or OFF side of the switch and then for the positive side...you guessed it attach the pink wire to the positive side. I had to make the pink wire longer for my switch location so if you know how to solder I wuld reccomend doing that than any other ghetto method, such as electric taping it and calling it a day, ding that may damage the system in the future

ADIC-D1 auto muting


Check the "mute" wire. It's probably grounding out causing it to mute.

I have a Pioneer AVIC-D2 DVD Nav/6.5" Screen/AM/FM/CD Player Car Video Player i can play music on it ,wen i insert a dvd the screen goes black i can hear the dvd playing on my speakers but no picture comes...


there is a safety brake wire that needs to be hooked up. If it was installed professionally, have them explain it to you.There is not supposed to be any video players in view of the driver while in motion. Stop your car and put on the parking brake. If you installed it yourself, you probably didnt hook up the wire. Look inthe install manual for DVD safety wire.

Hooking up the parking brake sequence


There are no "bypass codes". Making the unit work without the handbrake is a wiring issue, and it's easy. I highly suggest doing it this way to make the player much more useable.

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

Jensen vm9511ts cuts out


It sounds like the phone mute is going on and off, but I'm just guessing because I don't know your grounds, speaker wire hookup configuration, etc. Look at the screen when the music cuts off and goes back on and if you see a little red phone with the cross through speaker symbol (aka mute) it's probably the phone mute feature which is supposed to be hooked up to bluetooth and mute the stereo when you get a call. Like I said I'm just guessing, but if so there's a brown wire in the back that needs to be hooked up.
