Re: AVH-P4900 E-Brake ByPass?

I have bypassed many units with an ebrake safety.. best bet would be a toggle switch, connect to ground. i don't believe your unit uses a 12v+ for the ebrake signal, but if it does, connecting the wire to ground first won't harm the unit, try it out, flip the switch on-off-on and take it for a test drive. if it works, you are good to go, if not, test it with the positive.

if you need any further help, feel free to post a followup,

Bypass video on Pioneer AVH-X6500DVD

None of the above methods will work on a newer Pioneer. You can't just ground the wire, it won't work. The wire has to see nothing on it until the radio is already on and then needs to see ground. You can do it with a switch or a relay, but just grounded it does not work.

Bypass ebrake with relay on a pioneer avh-p5700

Go to any auto parts store and purchase a four wire relay and wire it up as follows: The relay will have numbers written on the bottom for each pin. The wire from the parking brake from the H/U to 87. Ground to 85 and 30. Remote from the H/U to 86. This will give you an automatic bypass to the DVD lockout. If you want to just put a switch to do this manually you can also. Go to Radio Shack and buy a momentary push button switch, part number 275-1548. Take the green wire coming out of the unit. Strip the wire, and attach it to one of of the pins on the relay switch. It doesn't matter which one. Buy a standard 16 gauge wire from Radio Shack and connect it to the other pin on the switch, then connect the other end of it to a grounded connection on your vehicle. Now, when you play a DVD, the warning screen will come on. Just press the button on the switch and it will go away, since it tricks the receiver into thinking you have engaged the parking brake. Like someone said before, it is illegal in just about all states to have a dvd or other video playing if the driver can see it and the car is moving. This method is used because the lockout not only keeps you from seeing videos but also locks out some features which many feel have nothing to do with safety and they need it.

Tie the Parking break sensor to the ground wire, or ground it to a piece of the frame and your done ;)
