    If I understand the question, that means that this is a factory installed unit, correct?

Go to avic411. com. they have a bypass... its a bit of work. you have to ground wires from the unit and run a cd that you can burn for free. but it does work very well. I did it to enable the other features.

Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.

Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.

How do i watch dvds and drive with a pioneer z2 double din


to watch dvds without you having to be in park you have to rewire the wiring to the deck. not the speakerwires or anything like that there should be a pink or orange color wire that comes from the harnest of the back of the deck anyway that wire is the only single wire in its own color besides (red yellow black) these are the wires that give power to your deck. all u have to do is take that one wire left over i think its orange in color and ground it (connect it with the black wiring. that should bypass the brakes from the deck n ypou can watch dvds as you drive but dont forget to also watch the road. :)

AVIC N2 parking brake bypass


There are two ways to complete this project:

1st

underneath the mounting bracket of the radio not the brain theres a silver sticker like mentioned above there are two silver solder points right beneath the sticker it must be jumped with a wire or you can use the solder to connect the two contact points after this you must still ground the green parking brake wire to the car.


2nd-(also my favorite choice and the one I'm using on my N5 & on my 7800dvd those who know pioneer know what i'm talking about)

buy a ptr7 pheriphial device and wire as follows (they come factory ready to bypass alpine and pioneer units)

wire as follows-white wire to green parking break of the deck your bypassing
red wire to vehicles 12v source
green wire from device to remote
black wire to vehicle ground wire
final important step I know because this happended to me
make sure you take a little screwdriver agfter wiring or something and switch the
PTR 7 to the off position-or else this will make the PTR7 not function correctly

Pioneer AVIC-Z2 DVD Function


I installed my pioneer avic z2 DVD/Navi myself and I realized that the wire that connects to the parking break is just a power wire that comes on when u pull the parking break. I think, all you have to do is to connect it to any other power wire that will be constantly provides the on power while driving. I'll try it out tomorrow and let you know!
