Poblems with grounding!

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?

Blaupunkt GmbH 12,1" lcd monitor in bus have 4 wires; one is black and it's ground but yellow, red and blue, wher is go?

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

Where does the yellow and blue cable connects to?

The yellow connects to power, if the blue wire has no stripe its an accessory and simply needs connected to power if the blue one has a white stripe its the remote turn on wire for an amp.

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 ( 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.

Good luck, kind regards and drive safe.
