I've grounded the Yellow/Blue wire and the DVD player works. The problem is if I turn off my car before I turn off the power to the DVD player the next time I turn my DVD player on it will give me the blue screen saying "Engage parking/emergency break to enjoy viewing...." I found if I disconnect the ground wire and reattach it it will work. Is there a way around this slight dilemma? Or do I ALWAYS have to kill power to the DVD player before I turn my car off?

Yellow - Battery
Red - Ignition
Black - Ground
Light Green - E-brake
Purples, greens, whites, and grays - speakers
Purple\white - reverse signal
Blue\white or Blue - amp turn on\ power antenna
Yellow\black - mute wire
Orange or Orange\white - illumination
black usually is ground the red is positive and the yellow is a constint power source that always stays on for memory and the other is blue and that is for remote. meaning a wire that is positive and only turns on with a stereo switch or a switch power now the red is a constant power to really coming from the battery and this is if these wires are power wires if not. if they are video then email me back and ill get back at you thanks nothing in wirs i cant figure or learn to. jokerstats
Depending on the vehicles wiring itself, Alpine uses the below color coding for its wiring: yellow – constant
+12v such as the positive battery terminal red – switched
12v such as the accessory terminal of the IGN switch black –
ground which could be the chassis/body ground of the vehicle or the negative
terminal of the battery blue/white
- remote trigger for add-ons such as a power amplifier blue – will
activate a power antenna (if present) white and
white/black - front left speaker + & - grey and
grey/black - front right speaker + & - green and
green/black - rear left speaker + & - purple and
purple/black - rear right speaker + & - orange/white
- reverse wire white/pink
- monitor control lead pink/black
- audio interrupt from mobile/cell phones yellow/blue
- parking brake yellow/black
- foot brake
To bypass, the yellow/blue must be triggered negative/grounded. Alternately, it may be easier to use an adapter such as a Peripheral PTR7 (http://peripheralelectronics.com/). In some regions, it is not allowed to operate this unit while vehicle is in motion.
Hope this be of help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
The revised cord is simply a ground wire just splice it to you ground wire and you can have the video playing while you are driving try not to watch it while your driving though
it is a yellow and blue cord i have this Sterio and soled the problem the same way i discribed if you want to be able to turn the screen off for any reason you can hook up a switch in the yellow and blue wire then run it to the ground wire
