How to install a iva-d310 from alpine

The yellow/black wire is for the foot brake and the yellow/blue is for the parking break. These wires need to be hooked up in line with the pinch connectors to the correct wire. The yellow/black wire needs to hook up to the wire to the foot break lead wire before the switch and the yellow/blue needs to hook up to the lead wire before the parking brake switch. This is a sefty feature to deactivate the video display because it is illegal to have video in the view of the driver while the vehicle is moving. These wires are used to tell if the car is stopped.

Bypass parking break for DVD player

It depends on the dvd player, most just need that wire to be hooked to ground. some units, you have to unhook it and reconect it every time you want to watch video. some you have to go on off, on off. The easiest way to bypass, is to get a togle switch, hook one side to ground, hook the other side to your dvd. then you can just flip the switch to make the dvd think you have engauged the park brake. hope this helps

I have a alpine cva1003 and cant get the screen off safety mode to play the dvd's. I have the parking break wire from the radio, which is yellow and white connected to the single parking break wire. is...

In order for the video to work you need to hook up both the parking and the foot brake leads so you would have to press in the foot brake pull the ebrake let up on the foot brake then the video should come up but if u want to watch videos all the time moving or stopped youll need to do some custom work so:

Short of making a microprocessor to do the sequence the easiest way is the two switch method. just mount two switches together and do the sequence.

Although the idea of only one switch and the foot brake hooked up correctly might work too.

The best way to go about it is to hook up the system as is should be and use a voltmeter to see what voltage changes are on the lines. Then hook up the switches accordingly.

hope that helps!!

Bypassing car dvd parking brake

Usually the wire should be grounded. Connect the wire to a ground point via a switch (is illegal to watch TV/DVD while you're driving)

Help me and my son


based on safety concerns. the DVD won't work if brakes are not engaged. The sensor for the enabled/activated brakes is the yellow/blue wire.

To bypass this model would mean grounding the brake wire would allow DVD playback. There is a little trick to make it work. It should start first as +12 before it should be grounded before the DVD will play hence a DPST switch would be required, not only grounding.

This is better explained here. Should you be in need of the manual, it is available here.

Additionally and a friendly reminder, in some regions, it is not allowed to view a DVD movie while vehicle is in motion.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.
