Its very simple splice the power wire "constant power" Red wire.

Next attatch the yellow parking switch wire to the constant power.

wallah... You can now watch movies on your in dash while driving! The deck thinks the brake is engaged

Alot easier then codes and pressing brake pedals and all that jive. They wont do it if your get it installed somewere so you have to do it yourself, its very easy

1) Insert the DVD and you'll get the blue screen.

2) On the main remote, push stop twice and then 1, 2, 6, 4

3) Push the joystick on the unit SOUTH twice and then click it once.

4) Press SYS SETUP on the main remote twice to save your settings.

you may have to try this a couple of times as you won't be able to see the hidden menu...

if you don't want to disable the ebrake overided, you will need to push the brake down, release it, then push it down again, that is the sequence the system uses to detect the ebrake is down and you want to watch a movie

hope this helps,

You need to engage the parking brake sequence.
3-5 full seconds (I usually do mine at 4 to ensure I get it).
then re-engage

blue screen gone.

Bad disk

Wow! That's a first. I used to sell both the Jensen AND Phase Linear versions and never a problem. It sounds like a bad unit. You say it plays NOTHING? No CD's OR DVD's that are the factor made?
The only thing I hav up my sleeve is to do a reset on the unit. If it has a button (I don't think it does frm what I remember) use it first, then with the unit ON, unplug the poer plug, wait a few, then plug back in and see.

Sorry I have no more tricks foir that,

There is a pink wire that goes to the parking brake. It connects to the ground wire on the parking brake that makes the brake light come on the instrument panel.

connect the pink wire on your stereo to a frame ground.
