Re: brake bypass for Sony cdx-m9900

Ok I have to say this before helping you. This is a safety feature, when you are driving you should be driving not watching a video, now since this is a technical forum and not a saftey forum here is your answer. First get a toggle switch conncet one end to ground and the other to the wire so that on means grounded and off is ungrounded. this way when you are driviing it will look like the parking break is on. Now some systems are smart and look for a series of things to indicate that the safety protocols may have been defeated, so what you need to do is test this out when the car is moving throw the toggle switch into the grounded position and your video should play. when you stop the car and exit put the switch into the off position. This should work for you. Again don't do this because you should have your full attention on the road.

How do i bypass the brake

Most wiring harnesses have a solid orage wire for illumination of the radio 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.

I lost user manual for Performance Teknique ICBM-9493TV Car Video

Yo I have a icbm 5254 in dash monitor and in order to bypass the parking brake security, splice the wire that's marked "park brake"(mine is Pink, yours may be Orange,but it'll be the oddball colors) into the acc or aux wire(usually yellow) and it'll play dvd while moving. Hope this has been helpful.

Parking Brake

If it is a GMC Canyon, then the wire is light blue at the brake pedal harness. Be sure to test this wire before connecting as this wire will test 12V+ when the pedal is pushed in. The parking brake wire is also light blue and can be found at the parking brake switch. Peripheral electronics makes a box called a PTR-7 which can be connected to the alpine and serves the purpose of the brake connections for the video bypassing of the unit. Hope this helps.

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.
