Kenwood How To Connect

I bought a truck with a DDX7047 and when I put the parking brake on and try to play a DVD. It will play with no video and the book says it is not connected to the parking brake detection switch. How would I go about connecting it?

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.

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 play dvd video when driving my car


Most wiring harnesses have a solid orage wire for illumination of the radio2_bing.gif 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. Just remember to be safe and pay attention to the road. Oh, and most states have laws governing the use of video playing in plain sight of the driver. BE CAREFUL!

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving


On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

Ddx512 Kenwood Parking off problem


Indash DVD units are programmed not to allow DVD's to play while the car is in motion. The unit only allows DVD viewing when the car is parked and the parking brake activated.

To get around this, you simply splice the parking break wire from the radio to the -NEG wire of the radio.

If this doesnt help let me know.
