What kind of vehicle? If you can find where the wire to the emergency brake switch (usually there is a switch at the top of the emer/brake pedal) was tapped into. Take a a test light (Bought at auto supply store) and find out if your switch is grounded or has 12vdc when emerg/brake is depressed. If it is grounded then find the wire from th dvd player and attach it to a frame ground. If it is 12vdc find some other source of 12vdc in the fuse box and put the wire to that source. If I knew what type of vehicle I can possible walk you through it.

Keep getting emergency brake screen


There is a connection that's supposed to be made to the e-brake swirch so that you can not watch movies while the car is moving. It disables the video unless the park brake is on for safety. To bypass this, that connection (that's supossed to go to the ebrake switch...(see your manual) needs to be permanently tied to ground. This will make it work anytime, and eliminate the screen you are seeing.

Is there a way I can watch a DVD movie on my Pioneer AVIC-Z2 screen without having to put on my parking brake?


Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.

Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.

The emergency brake sequence is simple. First apply your emergency brake, or engage your toggle switch on keep it on for 3-5 seconds then release or disengage for 3-5 seconds then reengage and a couple of seconds later you have vidieo. ENJOY.

Bypass code


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.
