You have to hardwire it to bypass the e-brake. Take the peach-colored wire and ground it to metal inside the dash. Put a toggle switch inline on the wire and mount it somewhere you can reach it. When you get the blue screen when starting a movie, open the switch for 3-5 seconds, then close it again to reapply the ground. Your movie will start up, and you can then drive away with it playing.

I dont know whats wrong with my valor 169T dvd player i can hear it but i cant get to see it in my monitor

You have to disable the emergency brake bypass. From what I remember there are two wires on the back of the radio one for the brake and one for the emergency brake. One of the wires is a blue yellow and the other one may be a light green. But you have to trigger the brake wire twice and trigger the emergency brake wire once in order for the video to play. The brake has a positive trigger and the emergency brake has a negative trigger.

What color is the e brake wire on clarion max385vattempting to overide the park brake issue so I can watch dvd's car is a 98 Camry

The most common way to solve this is to ground the E Brake wire and the deck thinks the E Brake is always on. if that fails you may have a somewhat smarter deck and may have to go to plan B.
This is a common solution to bypass the e-brake screen,

1st you will need to purchase a 12 volt or above Momentary Push Button/(Toggle)switch (about $5 Radio Shack)

2nd Using the Diagonal Pliers adjust the length of the Radio's Emergency Brake Wire to your desire. Make sure you have enough wire so you can mount it where you can easily access it like beneath your steering wheel/ on the Dash Board.

3rd Connect one end to the emergency brake wire from the radio and then connect the other wire from the switch to a ground to your car. You can use the same ground connection that you used for the radio and it will be fine. Make sure you wrap up the wires using the Electrical Tape to prevent shorts.

4th (Using Button Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just press the button (4x Times)for one second and release it. On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.

5th (Using Toggle Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just flip the switch on and off (4x Times). On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.

Hopefully this helps.

Hi all car dvd players have a emergency brake safety feature. The pink wire is to be spliced into your emergency brake wire, or there is a code you can purchase to bypass this feature.

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!!!!!!!!!!

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.
