Re: brake bypass

I used to work at a car audio and video shop installing well car audio and video. on the older model jensen headunits we used to install a toggle switch that connected the pink brake wire to ground and you would have to have the switch turned off before you put a dvd in. once you put the dvd in you would have to flip the switch on for three seconds then back off for three seconds and then again flip it on and leave it on. this should bypass the brake wire. it takes a little bit of practice to do it but once you get then hang of it, its easy. now on the newer jensen and phase linear headunits you would have to acces the settings menu, then you on the remote you would have to input the following code. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0. once this is done a secondary settings menu will pop up. on this menu you will have the option to turn the brake override feature on or off. hope this solve most of your problems.

Re: brake bypass

What you have to do is trick out the dash. Turn on your indash, put a movie and play it. It should say that your brake has to be on to play. When that screen pops up you have to ground the pink wire in a particular way.. first you have to touch the brake wire to the ground for a second or two, take it off for like 5 seconds and then touch it again to the ground for about another 2.. repeat that for a couple of times, it should work rite away though. i heard that alpine are more complicated but works on other cheaper brands

Re: brake bypass

No, actually, you need a prewired toggle switch. connect the pink wire to this and the other end to the e-brake. now you also need another piece of wire to connect to the e-brake connection (plate that makes contact with the e-brake) or just to ground.
when this is all done, with the toggle switch on, turn the car on. it should still give the warning message. wait about 5 seconds and switch to the off position. wait another 5 seconds and turn back on.
note: you will have to do this every time you start your car.

Re: brake bypass

Just attatch the pink wire to ground (the black one). Your DVD will play any time (may be illegal in your country/state/province.

How can I watch dvd on my kenwood radio while I drive

you have to bypass the parking brake safety switch. Basically, right now it is wired to the ground on your parking brake. Figure out where it is by following the wire from the head unit. Disconnect it, and connect the parking brake wire to the ground for the radio itself.

How to bypass the ebreak with the vm9313 model? Is there any codes or anything?

Hi megan
Although i have some reservation,i`ll assume your car does`nt have the parking brake wire so here`s the answer to your question;
You do not need to connect that wire but you need to bypass the parking brake function in the menu.

Here`s the parking brake bypass procedure:

1: Go into AM/FM mode

2: Hit "setup" on the remote control

3: Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each number

4: A new menu will appear. Touch the button that has the hammer/screwdriver on it in the upper left-hand part of the screen.

5: Select Brake bypass to "ON" and hit the "X" near the bottom of the screen.

6: Warning; use the unit wisely and above all safely. A ticket is one thing, causing a fatal accident due to negligence is another.

Hope this help Cheers

Normally, the emergency/parking brake has to be activated/engaged for the video player to operate.

By bypassing, you are simulating this condition even if in reality, the emergency/parking brake is not activated/engaged.

Solution > ground the video player's brake sensor wire rather than connect it to its intended connection point.

In some brands/model/versions of the video player, this would be light green (Pioneer, Clarion, JVC), green (Kenwood),

In some other rands/model/versions of the video player, there would be a bypass switch underneath a sticker, others would need a special adapter, still others have bypass option/feature in the menu/setup and some would require a toggle switch that would connect the dvd brake wire from positive to ground.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. A reminder pls, in some regions bypassing is not allowed.

Good luck and kind regards.
