    i got the deck hooked up and i tried the e-brake sequence but my e brakes are so worn the light doesn't even come on so would that stop the deck from picking up the signal? and second i have my amp hooked up through the rear pre-outs and when i put in a disk of any kind it turns my amp off. on the tuner it works, though.

  • thomas pribble Aug 08, 2007

    well the only thing i can think of is that the e-brake itself isn't registering enough to turn on the e-brake indicator light, b/c the e-brakes are worn to the point of not even being there. maybe in order to register through the deck it has to register in my truck as well and its not doing that due to the massive wear on my e-brakes. and have you came to a solution for the amp situation or are we working one problem at a time:) i think for the amp i'm gonna try a strait feed and a toggle rather than trying to figure out this nonsense. if you're having a hard time i understand this is my first video install and i understand. i am going to be redoing the e-brakes shortly so hopefully that will solve the problem with video. if it solves the problem i will write you and let you know for your own closure. still give it a thought and let me know if you want to wait and see after the brake job.

  • thomas pribble Aug 08, 2007

    i have the amp ran into the rear pre outs and of course the remote power. and as far as actually pressing start no it plays on its own. let try what you are suggesting bout the channels .

  • thomas pribble Aug 08, 2007

    ok tryed the #5 button and no luck and its not the remote wire b/c the amp works on tuner but nothing else

  • thomas pribble Aug 08, 2007

    ok and are you meaning to hook up the pink to my regular antenna wire or the powered antenna wire b/c i don't have a toggle for the second suggestion.

  • thomas pribble Aug 09, 2007

    sould this switch be mounted indef or should it be a temp thing? and you where right bout the amp wire being mixed up but what threw me was on the unit theres a wiring guide and it says the blue and white is for ant power. oh well one down! haha

  • thomas pribble Aug 09, 2007

    thanks and i 'll get back with you when i reach that point gotta find a switch to my liking.

  • thomas pribble Aug 10, 2007

    got it working so thanks for everything. you are a master of your craft!!

    Your pink wire originating from your player should ultimately terminate at #30 on your fuse box located in the cabin, not to be confused with the high amperage fuse box located in your engine compartment. Should you eventually "go banana's" with the Parking Brake Sequence for your player, an independant trigger or toggle switch can be placed in-line to interrupt/bypass your parking brake. I hope this provides your solution....good luck my friend.

    Hi prib...To be completely honest with you, this Parking Brake Sequence thing is absolutely driving me a bit batty. I read, digested, re-read, walked away to reset myself, and read again, but for the life of me I cannot comprehend the purpose, and therefore, has created a mental block on my end, which is preventing me from moving forward on your issue. IF YOU have an understanding of this single concept/theory, please update your post and educate me so the needle on the record in my brain stops skipping, and I can become productive in this issue again. I can see in my previous post that I mentioned a trigger or toggle switch, but again, this Parking Sequence....WHY...AI YAI YAI!!!!!

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    Hi prib...see what I mean? Just couldn't move forward...ok, your amp. Just to confirm, the plugs that you are using to connect to your amp originate from above the Harness on your Player correct?

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    I'll toss in some information while I wait for response to my amp hookup question.

    This may sound silly, but after you insert a disc of any kind, you are selecting CD as your source and physically pressing 'start' correct?

    On the bottom of your Player, towards the center, there's a button labled "5/2-6CH/RDM", for CD playback, press and hold this button to select between output modes.

    The pinhole to reset to factory default is located on the far bottom/right corner.

    Just came to mind but I need to check the voltage/amperage and open/closed. I think we can do away with the ebrake altogether by, if compatible, terminating your pink wire to your acc fuse. Well...you get the idea of where I'm headed.

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    prib...check to ensure that the wire originating from your player to amp is Blue and White, and not solid blue. Make sure you start your trace from the player itself just in case your after-market harness morphs the colors after cabling.

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    Ok prib...if you'd like to override the ebrake and bypass it, ground your pink to your Antenna Out. This site in phase is high enough up the food chain to provide your ground fault before the bypass can be detected by the unit. Remember, the ebrake seq is there so you don't watch videos while driving...ahem

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    Let's redo this ebrake bypass so you still have the safety feature. Install a single pull double throw rocker switch(neg/pos/out) that has an LED indicator for current drain, and terminate your Pink wire to the Out terminal. This will preserve the safety feature, and you're just using the switch to simulate your ebrake sequence. This way, you won't have to rush and repair your ebrake, then eventually we can install a new unit in your new vehicle that you purchased with the funds received from your insurance company

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    Hi prib....ok, the theory to the amp wire issue is that.....your amp IS fine in Radio Mode, so, possibly, your Antenna Switch Wire, is mistakenly being used for your Amp Switch Wire, thus, only allowing power to freely flow to the amp when the antenna is needed.

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 08, 2007

    Hi prib...the (plan) for your Pink Ebrake wire is to mount it to a rocker switch w/LED, which must be purchased. (I originally said to ground to Ant. Wire, but let's nix that idea altogether)

    I think that your Amp and Ant leads have been swapped in error as follows:

    Blue/White Antenna Lead originating from your Player;
    I believe that this blue/white lead is actually being routed to your Amp in error, which would explain why your amp is allowed power only when in RADIO mode.

    Solid Blue Amp Lead originating from your Player;
    I believe that this wire is erroneously being mated with your existing antenna wire.

    ==========================================

    The plan for the rocker switch w/LED (to be purchased). The switch should have 3 posts as follows: Ground, Positive, Out/Acc/Power.
    My idea is to mount your Pink ebrake lead from your player to the Out/Acc/Power post of this switch, and use this switch to perform the ebrake sequence. In practice, this switch is just an extension of your ebrake. I prefer that you use this method of 'override', in order to preserve the safety feature of the ebrake sequence, so that if you loan your vehicle, or your kids use it, you can leave the switch in the off position, disabling the (main)DVD while driving. (when wiring the Positive Post of the switch, I would terminate it with either numbers 11 or 15 of your fuse panel, which are both Accessory, Instrument Panel fuses)

  • V. Chris Suehiro
    V. Chris Suehiro Aug 09, 2007

    Hi prib...YEEHAH to amplified music! About the rocker switch.....Well, it would be MY personal preference to incorporate this switch permanently in all installs having this safety feature, mainly due to ease of use AND installation, and to prevent unneccessary wear on the ebrake cable. Not to mention that I like excuses to add more switches and shiny accessories. As for ease of use, my understanding is that you're not only required to perform a sequence, but this sequence is also timed. And that is where I think the switch would definately of assistance.

Have a ford explorer sport trac and rear brake lights don't come on I replaced the bulbs and checked all fuses all good could it be the brake switch if the third brake in the center comes on ?


There is a short in the steering column. Put the tilt steering all the way up. You may even have to push it up. This will close the short. Open the cover and you will see the wire has become loose in the harness.

I have a 2003 ford explorer sport trac. The brake light are not working. The bulbs are fine. The fuses are fine. The 3rd light works. What could be the problem?


it could be the brake light switch, you should find it under the dash around the area of the brake pedal , a wire may have come off or the switch could be loose & needs to be adjusted & tightened up, also check the wiring around the brake lights for any loose or disconnected wires..........hope this helps......cheers.

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer sport tac. I am hooking up a small fishing boat trailer to the truck ( the wiring on the trailer is new and installed correct). The problem: When I turn on the left or right...


You have one of two problems. Either there is a bad ground on your tailer, or the vehicle side trailer connection is bad. The Sport Trac is a 2 wire system and does not require a converter it would only need a 4-flat hardwired in. If you have a 3-2 converter installed good chance that is the problem seeing that the stop and turn wires on the input side would be wired to the same wire, which would explain the turn signals going off when the brake is depressed. If you have a converter installed simply ground the brake lead on the input side of the converter and your problem should be resolved.

2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. the turn signals click real fast and they dont work and the brake lights dont work either. what could be the problem and how do i fix it?


check the wiring to the rear sockets, including grounds then work your way forward, check the brake light switch then the signal light switch which i figure is bad but no sense replacing till you know everything else is good

How do i bypass parkingbreak for a jensen 9311ts on mustang 99


take the parking brake wire should be pink or some funky color and hook it up to a +12 power source.
that way there is no need to use the e brake or anything for it to work

But as a word of caution all this is illegal in most states due to people not keeping their eyes on the road. ive read of people getting tickets for having disabled this security feature on their stereos. some insurance companys will not cover you if there's an accident you are involved in and you by-passed the safety feature. so before you do it, be sure to read your local laws and check with your insurance agent before doing it. you will not be happy finding things out the hard way.

Brake wire for Jensen VM9311ts


You first have to figure out which one of these wires goes to ground potential when the brake is engaged. Get a digital multimeter set it to read resistance (turn the dial to the omega symbol)and then connect one end to ground of the car try the outer ring of the 12 cigarette lighter and the other using the tip to pierce the insulation of one of the wires, then press the parking brake. The meter with the brake not pressed should have ---- when the break is pressed the meter should read 0000 or some value less then 1.000 ohm. The wire that goes to ground when the brake is pressed is the parking break wire and attach your DVD player brake wire to that. My money is on the solid green wire.
