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.

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.

Bypass parking brake for VR3


Hi, I had the same prob with mine. Pretty easy fixed. There is an earth wire connected to the park brake switch, you have to disconnect it. If you are not savvy with car stereo installation, I would advise you take it to strathfield or another car stereo installer - it is a quick and easy job and they shouldnt charge you more than 20 bucks for it.... if that. Beware though, playing movies in your field of view is VERY distracting and dangerous..... and illegal.

Trailer wiring


you have to purchase a converter box with 5 wires, red, yellow, green and brown. this is because your turn signal is seperate from you parking and brake light bulb. you have to wire it straight in behind the connector.your basically converting two wires ( brakes and parking) to one wire (tailights) 5 wire to 4 wire.

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! :)

HOW TO UNLOCK MY VR3 RADIO TO PLAY DVD MODEL VRVD630


The brown wire labeled parking brake -12v should be connected to the parking brake switch. So that to watch a DVD the parking brake needs to be set. but can be bypassed by connecting to ground.
if connected to the lights it could be your problem

Brown parking line


4 months and nobody answered this for ya?? This unit is designed to prevent video operation while the vehicle is in motion, connect the brown parking wire to the parking brake indicator. Or, to bypass the safety application, simply connect the brown parking wire to the ground wire.
