How do you get dvd player to play? put dvd in and


there is a wire comming off the back of the radio that should be wired to an emergency brake put the emergency brake on and play movie or remove wire from emergency brake and just hook it to a good ground basically all it is is a ground wire that when the ebrake is not engaged it does not make a connection to keep you from using the tv while you are driving because it is ilegal to have the tv playing while ur driving all you need to do to bypass it is find the wire and just ground it to a solid ground if you had an install shop install the radio by law they have to hook it up properly or you can ask them to leave it and you can hook it up they can not hook it up so that the player plays all the time hope it helped

You can do like I did installing it in my 04 Civic Hybrid - find another wire that supplies a constant +5VDC and then it will believe the parking brake is always engaged and allow video. It's not legal to watch video while driving, but in my case, there was a wire bundle of around 30 or 40 wires harnessesd together that I wasn't about to jack with.

Also note that Clarion will not warranty any self installed NX or NZ 409 units. Something I hadn't realized when I got mine off e-bay.

I think the wire that should go to your hand brake is green, all you need to do to bypass this is hook it to an earth.

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.

Hi,

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.
