Hook the wire to a switch and another wire to a ground. After u power the unit up flip the switch. It will come up with a warning just hit ok and your ready to go. It has to be grounded AFTER it powers up or it wont work.

Re: bypassing the brake wire so i can watch video...

Hello haehner, Question why would you want to watch a movie while driving? That beeing said this is a tech forum so here goes. Take the brake wire attach it to a switch, take the other endof the switch and attach it to ground. In most cases companies have gotten wise to just grounding the break wire, so they have made it so the feature must be keyed off the break pedal light switch and must be connected, if conected to permanent ground it senses this and shut the unit down anyway, so what you have to do is connect the switch as I told you and try the sequence of on-off-on and this will disable the break feature. Again, don't do this the break wire is a safety feature. Thank you, Shuttle83

How can i watch movies with car in motion

Hi, what you will need is a video bypass module
I wouldn't really reccommend it, though, as the inability to watch videos while the car is moving is a safety feature built in your stereo for a reason.

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.

Usually the wire should be grounded. Connect the wire to a ground point via a switch (is illegal to watch TV/DVD while you're driving)

The security device was created to avoid you from watching DVD's while driving. It is simple to bypass. Simply take the parking brake wire (blue/yellow stripe wire) and connect it to the a ground wire (all black wire). This will trick the DVD player into thinking that the car is in park with the parking brake on at all times.
