The problem is that it wants you to be legal so it will only work when the parking brake is set. A way around this is to either ground it directly. Or you could put it on a switch to ground so if you get pulled over you can flip it quick and not get caught. It's up to you. I hope I could help.

No, you do not need to connect the parking break wire for the unit to be powered. My radio worked when the parking break wire wasn't attached, but you cannot watch video's or use USB without attaching it to something... you can bypass the parking break to a switch if you like.

How do i wire up m Kenwood KVT-696 so that i can play DVD's, it shows a blue screen saying 'parking off' do i connect my AV in or AV out cords coming from the head unit?


For safety, the KVT-696, like other 'head units,' is design so that, properly installed, it will only work while the vehicle is in Park, with the parking brake ON. Makes sense if you think about it. Hey?

There is no video on my kenwood ddx8017, why? Do i have to bypass the parking break wire? which one is it, the solid green, or red with black, or pink?


If you want to watch videos on your unit it is necessary to bypass the parking brake wire from the Kenwood unit. The parking brake wire is light green and the best possible way to bypass the unit is by installing a toggle switch. The toggle switch should be a two wire device. Connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the parking brake wire from the unit. This will allow you to switch the supply on the wire to ground when needed.
Also, in some older Kenwood units you could just as easily connect the parking brake wire to ground and be done with it but, it does not always work.

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.

Kenwood kvt-719dvd plays dvd but wont show picture


It is probably that the parking safety wire wasn't hooked up properly, or at all. Most in dash dvd players are equipped with a motion safety device to prohibit the driver from viewing movies and such on the monitor while the vehicle is in motion. The wire for this needs to be hooked to the parking brake light wiring. This will ensure that when the parking brake is on, the dvd can sense that the vehicle is stopped, and should therefore show the image.

Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player i get the sound but no picture.


its a safety feature, the dvd player can only work when your car is in park or if your park break is on, reason being is that the dvd player is grounded so that when your parked you can watch a movie safely, i know boring!!! so all you need to do is find where its grounded at the park break and re-ground the wire to a area that isn't a break( anywhere other then your break switch) and the dvd will play wen in motion. what i mean by this is that there is a little switch in your centre console where when your break is on the button is down allowing power to the wire, when the break is up it releases the power giving no juice to the wire allowing the dvd player to ground and not work. all you need is to make the wire able to work without being attached to anything other then a live ground. i hope that helped, as i had this problem and was so frustrated until i figured it out take care, matt

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving


On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.
