It's supposed to go to the wire of the parking brake that is grounded with the parking brake on. This wire disables the dvd video so it can only be watched with the parking brake set. On mine, I just connected it to the black wire so it is able to play video all the time. Or you could run it directly to ground, same thing as connecting it to the black wire.

Is there any way to bypass hooking up the e-brake wire for the vr3 Roadaster car stereo


To get passed the brake issue there should be a lose/bear end wire at the back of the head unit - just attach it some how to the metal head unit cage, this should hopefully bypass the problem

Hope This Helps

Where is the parking brake switch located on a 2007 GMC Sierra Classic? I am trying to hook up the parking brake wire and can't seem to find it.


Why don't you just install a toggle switch? Place one end on the parking brake wire from the Pioneer unit and the other end to ground. This replicates putting the parking brake on and enables you to watch movies.

Dual xdvd700


This unit is designed so that it may be operated only when the vehicle is in “Park” and the
parking brake is fully engaged. To this end, this unit includes a parking brake lock-out
feature which prohibits the unit from operating if the vehicle is not in “Park” and/or the
parking brake is not fully engaged. When installing this unit, the installer must connect
the parking brake detect wire (“Yellow-Blue Lead”) to the parking brake mechanism in
order to make the parking brake lock-out feature operable. DO NOT simply ground the
parking brake detect wire to a metal portion of the vehicle. Failure to properly install
the parking brake lock-out feature could lead to driver distraction which could result in
serious injury or death to the driver’s occupants or persons outside the vehicle and/or
property damage.
Once the parking brake lock-out feature is installed, the owner/user must not attempt to
disrupt/neutralize the parking brake lock-out feature by (a) partially engaging the parking
brake and/or (b) purchasing/using any device or unit designed to send necessary brake
signals to the unit. Failure to follow these instructions could lead to driver distraction
which could result in serious injury or death to the driver’s occupants or persons outside
the vehicle and/or property damage.


you could just earth the system straight to the veihicle, which will then dissengage the play in park feature, here is the website for the online manual

VR3 640g roadmaster won't "power on".


Sounds like it is broken. If you have the power wire hooked up as you said it should be working fine. Not sure which browm wire you are referring to but it should work regardless of that.

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play


There isn't any code that I know of. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, 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.

Safty brake feature


k here's the thing. The weird wires for your safety brake, headlights, etc.

If you want to be able to use your player while driving, aka leave a movie playing and have the screen still work then ground those wires. You could either splice them into your ground wire or you can take and use the sheetmetal surrounding the head unit to ground them.

Oh and as for the reverse light wire. That one you will need to wire in if you're going to use the optional reverse camera that they sell separately.

Hope this helps, don't forget to click fixya! :)

if connected to the lights it could be your problem
