Normally, the emergency/parking brake has to be activated/engaged for the video player to operate.

By bypassing, you are simulating this condition even if in reality, the emergency/parking brake is not activated/engaged.

Solution > ground the video player's brake sensor wire rather than connect it to its intended connection point.

In some brands/model/versions of the video player, this would be light green (Pioneer, Clarion, JVC), green (Kenwood),

In some other rands/model/versions of the video player, there would be a bypass switch underneath a sticker, others would need a special adapter, still others have bypass option/feature in the menu/setup and some would require a toggle switch that would connect the dvd brake wire from positive to ground.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. A reminder pls, in some regions bypassing is not allowed.

Good luck and kind regards.

Im guessing since this is an in dash dvd player your trying to bypass the emergency brake so it will work with the vehicle in drive. If this is the case all you have to do is take the wire that goes to the emergency brake and ground it somewhere.

How do u disconnect the emergency brake on a 1987 dodge dakota 4x4

It depends on where the cable is stuck.
You can disconnect it at the connection points, you have a front, center, and two rear cables. But if the cable is stuck at one of the brake drums, disconnecting it at the front or center connector won't free up the brake shoes.

Bypass brake

What kind of vehicle? If you can find where the wire to the emergency brake switch (usually there is a switch at the top of the emer/brake pedal) was tapped into. Take a a test light (Bought at auto supply store) and find out if your switch is grounded or has 12vdc when emerg/brake is depressed. If it is grounded then find the wire from th dvd player and attach it to a frame ground. If it is 12vdc find some other source of 12vdc in the fuse box and put the wire to that source. If I knew what type of vehicle I can possible walk you through it.

How do i bypass the emergency brake wire on a dual xdvd700

Its illegal to do but i have done it! You have to connect the brake wire to either the pos or neg wire! You need to find out which one it is thou, so attatch it to the negative first so you dont cause any damage if it doesnt work then connect it to the pos wire and it should work a treat for ya! I stress connect to neg first!!!!!!!!!!
