I can't get my set up menu to pop up. I followed the steps in the manual word for word. I applied my foot brake while engaging my parking brake and released my parking brake and engaged it again. Then I pressed and held the mute/setup button and nothing happens. Can someone please tell me if I am doing something wrong.

Attach the parking brake wire to a toggle switch and chassis ground. That way you can flip that switch and simulate the parking being applied, released and applied. Then you can watch movies, text, chat, etc., all while you're supposed be to being driving.
the unit will have wires that need to connect to your foot brake, and parking brake. Its the law in the state I live (Alaska) that professional installation requires the dealer to install the wires to the foot and parking brake. There is usually a sequence to getting the picture up. (like holding down foot brake while applying parking break) then the message will disappear.
I simply bypassed this by connecting the two wires to the AUX (usually red wire) so there was a 12 volt draw. added two switches inline to act as the brake sensors.
on the jensens, there is a way to disable the parking brake without having to put a switch on the parking brake wire. the catch is that you will need the remote control to get into the service menu. follow these steps
1.turn the radio on and select the setup menu.
2. while in the setup menu, use the remote and press 5-4-3-2-1-0, this should access another service menu.
3. from there, you will see a brake override option.
4. and your done.. hope this helps
if for any reason yours doesnt offer this option. you can always put a switch on the ebrake wire of the screen.
1. use a 2 wire toggle and wire one side the ground and the other to the parking brake wire on the jensen. then do the pattern on the switch instead of using your ebrake.
you just need to hook up the foot brake wire (yellow and black) and hook up the parking brake wire (yellow and blue (looks green) ) set the parking brake then press and release the foot brake and your dvd picture will play
in order to see the movie you have to first push the foot brake,then engage the parking brake, then while continuing to push the foot brake, release and re-engage the parking brake. that should get the movie going.
Just go to the set up menu ( Your screen should say setup at the upper center of your screen ) Then press 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 with your remote control and a second menu will apear, on your left side press the second option and select parking bypass to on.
I'm not sure if you're still having this problem... but here's the solution anyway. The stereo has an annoying little safety feature where you can't access the general and system setup menus while you're driving. Not that I'd want to... but there's no reason the passenger shouldn't be able to. Anyway, while the ignition is turned ON:
Put the car in park (if a stick shift, then neutral is fine). Press the foot brake and keep it pressed. Then engage the parking brake and release it once. Then engage the parking brake a second time and leave it engaged. Then take your foot off the foot brake. This unlocks the setup mode from the main menu screen.
Hope this helps!
If your getting the "Can't view dvd in drivers view must apply parking brake" you need to recheck your ground. You might want to try another location for the ground. If the unit is VM9410 you can simply ground the parking brake wire and you'll be good to go.
