Hi,

To my knowledge the white/brown wire of a Dual XDVD8181 goes to the reverse lamp/switch. The pure yellow wire should go to an always on B+12 such as the battery positive terminal. It is the yellow/blue that goes to the emergency/parking brake.

Incidentally, this model is one of those that 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.

    Hi again, the only time the white/brown wire of a Dual XDVD8181 goes that goes to the reverse lamp/switch is if you have a rear facing camera hooked up to your video display.

    If you have no camera, then there is no need to connect the white/brown wire to anything.

    Cheers.

How do i watch dvds and drive with a pioneer z2 double din


to watch dvds without you having to be in park you have to rewire the wiring to the deck. not the speakerwires or anything like that there should be a pink or orange color wire that comes from the harnest of the back of the deck anyway that wire is the only single wire in its own color besides (red yellow black) these are the wires that give power to your deck. all u have to do is take that one wire left over i think its orange in color and ground it (connect it with the black wiring. that should bypass the brakes from the deck n ypou can watch dvds as you drive but dont forget to also watch the road. :)

My radio does not play dvds it keeps saying that the parking break is on but it is not no matter what the car is in it just doesn't play any dvd and the radio is dvd compatible.


You didn't mention the brand of stereo but, the standard is that the unit's parking brake wire ( light green) must see a ground for the dvd playback to function. Most stereos you could just attach it to ground but the Pioneer units have a different configuration.

I have a VRVD630 i cant watch dvds because i dont know were to hook up the orange reverse light wire and the parking brake wire


the parking brake wire just needs to go to a ground other than the ground for the deck and the orange reverse light wire you shouldn't have to worry about it if you turn on the deck and you still can't watch movies try hook it up to the illumination wire.

My lanzar sd31mu says that i cant play a DVD while i drive I want to know what to do. Thank you.!


there is a wire that goes to the parking break warning light switch, simply disconnect to watch while you drive, but this may be illegal so I would say don't do it, not to mention dangerous.

It wont play dvds or any kind of video


Having the car in "park" is not the key. The unit needs to see a 'ground' on the light green wire that attaches to the parking brake. (see manual). You can get around this by installing a toggle switch OR a relay that will user the 'amp remote' wire as the trigger.

Watch a dvd while driving pioneer AVH-P4000 DVD


Hi Dave
No ....go to a hardware store buy a toggle switch than get a single speaker wire (small wire) attach it to the red wire on the back of your pioneer deck (make sure to leave the red wire in back of deck as well) and attach it to the power on the toggle switch do the same with the black wire (ground wire) the black wire will go into the toggle switch under the power wire. finally install the parking break wire from the pioneer unit to the last slot on toggle switch and this should do the trick if not swap the ground spot for the brake spot on toggle switch >>>> MAKE SURE THE TOGGEL SWITCH HAS 3 HOOK UPS to do this correctly (your system will provide sound with the toggle switch off (Blue Screen) but when toggle switch is on you get video while driving) good luck

Try grounding the parking brake wire instead of attaching it. Should bypass brake requirement for video but really should effect powering on
