Monitor shows driver must not watch the monitor while driving

hi philip, your model has a cable on the harness called "park brake" which needs to be connected to ground/black wire. this wire functions as an enable/diable to the video output to the screen. once it is connected to ground permanently the video/movie will display whenever a dvd disc is inserted. cheers.

I bought the jensen vm8113 for the dvd player. I travel a lot with my family and thought that the dvd player would keep my passengers occupied while i drive. Problem once i installed it, i found out that...

To be honest with you, it's a very easy fix. If you read the install manual it shows the parking brake needs a negative (-) to function. In theory you hook this to the parking brake and when it's applied it will sent a negative to the attached wire, thus activating the playback. Just attach this wire to the negative ground on the system or wire a switch and install it in dash. With 1 wire going to the parking brake wire on the cd and the other going to the ground so you can de-activate it when you wish.

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play

There isn't any code that I know of. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

here's the code. I did this with my remote and it works.
press stop twice(which is also the band button)
press down 1 time(button below the play/enter)
press play/enter 1 time
(you should see the menu now)
brake override should say no
I was told to change macrovision to no
hit system setup twice to save and exit
hope it works like mine did

The brown wire labeled parking brake -12v should be connected to the parking brake switch. So that to watch a DVD the parking brake needs to be set. but can be bypassed by connecting to ground.
if connected to the lights it could be your problem
