Re: help me find the code to my radio


It is very possible that the height adjustment of the trigger switch underneath activated by the brake lever is slightly out of alignment. More often this involves a few turns of an open wrench on the lock nut of the switch.

Should you be interested, a repost of my response to a request for bypass of this model.
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.

On a JVC KW-V50BT I want to bypass the parking brake setup. Can I just ground the Parking brake wire in the back of the stereo?

Without actually looking at the wiring - you'll need to provide the same voltage level to this wire that it sees when the parking brake is set . This is usually tied to either +12V or -12V. So, if the radio plays when it is grounded (or -12V), you can tie it any ground in the vehicle. If it plays when it is hot (+12V), then you'll need to tie it to any +12V source. Be sure you're connecting to a VOLTAGE source, and not a data bus that is found in newer cars.

Once you do this, the radio will be fed a signal regardless of the parking brake position.

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.

Whats the code sequence?

All you have to do to bypass your brake is insert a DVD into the dvd player. When the blue screen pops up just take your remote and press stop stop 1,2,6,4 that will bring up a manufacturer menu that you wont be able to see. Once you do that use your right joystic and press down then right that will turn the brake override on and also make the brake wire completley useless. then you want to set the region code to 1 and turn the macrovision to off. Once you do that all you have to do is press SYS SETUP on your remote control twice to save the settings. Thats it you are all set you will never have to worry about the brake again and you can watch the movie while driving but be careful if you drive eratic and get pulled over with a movie playing its a big fine. Enjoy!
