Brake bypass for Sony cdx-m9900

Where can I connect the blue/white stripe wire besides the parking brake so I can get video all the time?

    I have a sony dvx 2000 and it will not play the dvd even when grounded? Do I need a toggle switch? Do you have the switch in the off (ungrounded) position and then throw the switch on to show the unit a ground? It is a green wire. There is no safety issue in my case-I have installed it in my camper!

    Please advise?

Thank you for your solution, it works great,,,also thanks for pointing out saftey concerns, which i agree with, but I think you went to far suggesting I was one of those folks who do "dumb stuff"...thats what you should feel ashamed about BECAUSE this radio is being installed in the back of a limo,,but thanks for the tip it did work

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.

    Hello Houseman

    I gather that you did not like my safety message, even though I did show you how to defeat a safety measure. But that's ok, it serves me right. I thank you for opening my eyes to the fact that some folks are going to do dumb stuff no matter how it affects others, and for my part in that I feel ashamed, so I will no longer be answering these kind of requests because we all have choices in life and I prefer to make the right ones. Take care

Why does my subs only work when the mode is on fm

sounds like you are using the antenna remote wire (blue) to turn the amp on. you need to use the amp remote wire(blue/white stripe). when you go to cd or any other function besides tuner power is shut off to the antenna remoter wire.

Bypass parking brake for dvd player Kenwood kvt 512

Just connect the purple safety wire to the car's ground location or to the other ground wires.

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.
