Re: video while driving

Yes, just did this myself with a Lanzar unit. Instead of attaching the parking break wire to the parking break, attach it to the ground wire or any other useable ground connection. Works great.

I have a 1985 chevy caprice classic, i installed this player and found easiest...

just run the parkingbrake wire into one side of a toggle switch, and grond the other side of the toggle switch, When the WARNING pops up on the screen, just flip the toggle on then off then hit OK on the screen, Youll be good to go

no, you can't, because watching a video while you drive is an insanely stupid thing to do.

Lanzar SD32MU: how do you disable the video screen

ok here is the big secret. There should be a wire that goes to the parking break. In most after market radios, it is a brown wire. The way to get around this is to put that wire directly to ground. It will work at all times.

My lanzar sd31mu says that i cant play a DVD while i drive I want to know what to do. Thank you.!

there is a wire that goes to the parking break warning light switch, simply disconnect to watch while you drive, but this may be illegal so I would say don't do it, not to mention dangerous.

Lanzar not playing dvd's says parking brake

what you need is a toggle switch...
put the switch between the parking brake wire, and actual ground,
the black wire will work, just extend the wire so the toggle switch is
accessible, once you do that turn your indash on,
slap a dvd in it, then once it displays the parking brake message,
hit your toggle switch once, if it doesnt get it,
try it multiple times but with a second between clicks,
that should do it and please keep the eyes on the road. :]

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play

To bypass the parking brake you should connect the parking brake wire from the unit to ground. It is better to do it via a switch because is illegal to watch video while you're driving. :)
