Just hook up the parking brake safety switch from the unit to ground. That will do the trick. Hope this helps

When I see video of my radio dvd pd 733bt pyramid, the display says Frease the following: parking brake audio only! what should I do to get out of the sentence is the display?


That is because it has a safety on it to where you can only watch videos when in park. It doesnt want you watching movies while driving. Easy to bypass if you know what your doing. There is probably a wire on the back of the stereo that is in a bundle that you did not use? It should be relatively long. Maybe add a bit of length to it with some more wire and hook it to the ground on your battery if that doesnt work put it on the positive. Sorry i remember doing this in my camaro dont remember if its pos or neg but you are suppose to hook that wire to somthing on the parking break. Hooking it straight to the battery will bypass the parking break safety.

Yes im tring to find the parking wire i dont know what color it is trying to watch video not working


The parking brake wire for this unit is light green. Try connecting it the unit's ground wire (black) and test for video. If it does not show video when connected to ground, install a two wire toggle switch. Connect one wire of the toggle switch to the light green wire and and the other wire of the toggle switch to ground. In this manner you will be able switch the screen on and off when viewing videos.

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.

Kenwood ddx712 says parking off when dvd is put in while drivind


This is ok, it is trying to protect you from losing focus on your driving. It is asking for you to pull the parking brake up so that you wont drive while watching a movie, it is against the law to drive while watching TV in a moving vehicle, you must be parked to watch, it is possible to bypass the P-Brake so that you can watch as you drive but it then becomes a technical issue which is too long for me to guide you through here and most car audio shops will not do it for you due to liability reasons if you get into an accident, they dont want to get sued.

Good luck buddy.

Please rate and vote for me if I helped. Thanks.

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 do I watch videos in drive in 1996 cadillac deville


Nice car. I have a 96 Deville also and i'm installing the same radio in it in about 2 days. there are two options to bypassing the video lockout:you can either buy the PAC TR-7 bypass cable which costs around 20 bucks on sonicelectronix.com or you can wire the parking break wire to a toggle switch and ground a wire from the neg end of the toggle switch.The PAC controller is way more convenient because you dont have to flip the toggle switch 3 times everytime you get in the car.I hope this helped
