How do i get the video to work on my kenwood kvt 817

I have everyting hooked up, and it all works exept , I can here the dvd sound , but just cant see the picture. I bought this out of a car auction and it didnt come with instructions. There is a pink and a green wire not hooked up. Is there a saftey feature that doesnt let u watch video when your driving. Someone told me that and thats why I asked.

Yes there is a safety feature but it is very easy to overide with a toggle switch you can purchase from just about any where. if you arent to tech savy you could take it to a "hole in wall" stereo shop and they can do it, but they will charge. if not look up the manual for your reciever on kenwoods website and it will tell you how and what those other wires are for.

Passcode


You might have bought a stolen one. I was installing a sub in my car and unplugged mine and it required a pass code, which i forgot for a while, but luckily remembered. I called about getting it reset and they said I had to bring it in to a official Kenwood ceter in order to get it reset. I would just suggest to call Kenwood. Also, i'm currently looking for a new one because mine was stolen again, so hopefully the person who stole it is having a problem installing it in there car. good luck.
