At this time there isn't a code bypass for this model. the easiest thing to do so that you can play video while in motion. is to put a toggle switch on the parking brake wire of the dual screen. then do the ebrake pattern on the switch instead of the ebrake in the car

1. disconnect the parking brake wire of the dual from ur ebrake wire in your car.
2. take your 2 wire toggle switch and connect one wire to Ground(metal)
3. take the other wire and connect it to the parking brake wire of the dual screen.

if i remember correctly, the pattern for the dual screens is.
1. starting in the off position.
2. on for 2 secs
3. off for 2 secs.
4. then on .. the the video will show.

hope this helps

Using without parking break

Hi James,

Page 27 of the installation manual ( shows a connection to the parking brake light circuit. It is the Light Green wire labeled "PRK SW" shown below.


If it is connected the way it is drawn, the PRK SW wire is connected between the lamp and the switch that opens and closes depending on the position of the parking brake (set or not). 12 volts is always present from the battery to the top of the lamp. It passes thru the filament to the wire that goes the top of the parking brake switch. So, when the brake is OFF or disengaged, the lamp is off and 12 volts is present on the PRK SW wire to your Kenwood GPS. When you set the parking brake, the ground (symbol is the funny slanted lines under a horizontal line) just under the brake switch passes through the switch and changes voltage at the PRK SW to "ground" or 0 volts. When this happens, the ground on one side of the lamp with 12 volts on the other side of the lamp - make is turn on.

So, what does this mean? Simply tie the PRK SW wire to any grounded metal and the Kenwood will think the parking brake is always set - for as long as it is tied to ground. You can check it with a simple voltmeter to be sure. Set the meter to 12 volts or more, touch black lead to ground & the red lead to the PRK SW wire. Kenwood should only work when at 0 volts (brake set). Release the brake - meter shows 12 volts & the Kenwood shuts off.

I hope this helps & Good luck!

We have an Audi TT and the brake lights stay on after you turn the car off. Also noted that a passing car informed us that the brake lights stay on while driving as well. Could this possible be a switch...

If all the brake lights stay on then the brake light switch is the first thing to check. It cod also be dagger wiring to the switch or it may just be loose and/or out of place.

Have a 1989 f250 5.8 that didnt pass smog the guy told me its running rich the report said the HCdidnt pass just by a few numbers everthing else passed so i put plugs cap wires o2 sensor and a new brake...

Would double check your firing order on your cap.If running worse almost positive some wires were crossed.The spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 ) and runs counterclockwise on the distributor cap.

Abs, brake and dsc ligth are permanet on

Hi There, Not to worrry, this usually occurs when the car is old as long as you ensure your brake pads are well fixed, you can ignore this and continue driving. Just ensure your breakpads have been newly changed.

Please my 1997 honda accord dash board brake lamp is on permanetly, what should i do

Check brake fluid level, check hand brake (emergency) is down & released all the way. Otherwise, have brakes checked a.s.a.p. in case of dangerous problem. Not something you want to ignore.

the e brake wier to the switch and the other to a ground. if you use a switch with a lite in it the light will never work not enough power an so their will be just open prong then switch it bak and forth when the screen comes up and when it tells you to hit ok leave the switch in that position and hit ok and enjoy.

How to by pass the e brake wire

OK PEOPLE, I HAVE THE DUAL XDVD8181 just installed, you don't need to do any kind of code to get the video to bypass. this is what you have to do

Get a toggle switch, one that flips one way for ON, and the other way for OFF. connect parking brake wire (yellow/blue) to one end of the switch and the other end to the ground of the radio (Black wire) leave the switch in off position, turn on radio and insert dvd, when you get the blue screen, flip switch ON OFF ON wait 5 seconds and video will come on. That it fellas.
