Is the park signal wire supposed to be hooked to the ground side or power side of parking brake switch? I'm trying to install a kvt 512 for a buddy, and the dvd player wont work with out the park signal.


If you want to by-pass the parking brake wire, here's how.
Most wiring harnesses have a solid orage wire for illumination of the radio2_bing.gif and also have an orange wire with a white stripe for dimming purposes. Most radios do not use this dimming feature. Connect the brake wire to this wire and your able to watch your movies whenever you want. All the wire is looking for is a signal. It cannot differentiate between a parking brake signal and a non-parking brake signal.

Stays illuminated wen shut off.


Sounds to me like the (+) wire that is supposed to be hooked to the dashboard light circuit is instead hooked to something that is on all the time, such as Battery (+).

You probably have the ground wire hooked to the illumination wire for the car. it will act as a ground when the lights are turned off

JENSEN VM9311TS DO I HAVE TO HOOK THE BRAKE WIRE UP AT ALL?


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.

Wire diagram i think


pink wire if its to go to ground then any metal is ground or negative not live in other words they say the handbrake so you cant use it whilst driving so any metal should do for this ok.

Are you wiring it to amp or not?
Also the mute only wires into say phone cradle or something that would mute the stereo say if you had phone in craddle this would mute the sound so you could here the call. so not needed unless you have phone craddle.

If the two lives are wired in and the ground black when you earth the pink then it should switch on let me know if this happens.

Auto ant is for the arial on car if this goes up and down on motor if not then its not needed

Ill check on dimmer/illumination ok but bare with me for couple of hours just popping out but will get back to you then ok
