I had the same problem. This is what you do. You need a toggle switch a simple on and off switch. Connect your ebrake wire to the toggle switch and then a wire that is grounded to the toggle switch. Turn on your dvd player and when the warning message appears turn your toggle switch on and off and on and then you will be able to watch your movie.

    I am not sure you if you slolved it or not. You need a toggle switch something that looks like this Connect your E brake wire to the left or right side of the toggle switch where the screws are. The E brake wire should be a white and blue colored wire and should be labeled already. Next you need to connect a ground to your toggle switch. The ground is usually a black wire. Connect that wire to your toggle switch. The ground that I used for my toggle switch is the same ground for the stereo I used. I just spliced into that. After that is all complete. Put your toggle switch some where in your vehicle where it can not be viewed easily. Insert a dvd into your head unit. Then when the blue screen appears saying you need to be in park to watch a movie use your toggle switch on off on off on. and you should be able to watch movies.



    PS: To test it before you hook up your toggle switch touch your ebrake wire to a ground wire and then remove it then touch it again and hold it there and that should engage your movie. Use that method to ensure you have a good ground.

How do i bypass the parking brake restraint on my axerra axv820?


Attach the parking brake wire to a toggle switch and chassis ground. That way you can flip that switch and simulate the parking being applied, released and applied. Then you can watch movies, text, chat, etc., all while you're supposed be to being driving.

I just bought a dual xdvd9101 indash dvd player and cant get the brake bypass to work


However, some units use different methods. Some require seeing a pulse (i.e., power-ground-power-ground-etc.), resulting in the annoying need of pushing the e-brake a few times before your video will pop up. This can generally be recreated by using a 3-prong switch (you can get one at AutoZone). Connect it backwards -- the ground to power, power to ground, and the "Load" to the Parking Brake wire on the back of the radio. Flip the switch back and forth a few times and sometimes the video will pop up.
Some fancier units cannot be cheated. They use an internal gyro mechanism that detects movement.
Some even feature bypass codes. By pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote then entering in a code it will permanently allow video.
Be good.

Parking brake safety bypass


here is what you need to do is, get a toggle switch and hook one side to a ground and the other side to the parking brake wire on the unit.
use the switch as a brake because you have to set brake for a few seconds then release and set again but keep it on this time.
you will have to do this every time you start the car.

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.

** Insert Audio CD
** Press Play
** Hit Stop Twice
** Use remote to enter 26604
** Hit OK
** Take out Audio CD and Insert a DVD

There isn't a code but there is a way when you wire it. 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.

The problem is that you're trying to bypass a safety feature. Newer video head units are smart enough to know when you've just grounded the brake switch wire so you can watch it while you're driving. Try hooking it up to your parking brake wire.
