On certain units, you can just use the brake sensor as a kind of earth. Earth it to your something, in other cases people splice it to the antenna or memory wires.

I just bought a dual xdvd9101 indash dvd player and cant get the brake bypass to work


However, some units use different methods. Some require seeing a pulse (i.e., power-ground-power-ground-etc.), resulting in the annoying need of pushing the e-brake a few times before your video will pop up. This can generally be recreated by using a 3-prong switch (you can get one at AutoZone). Connect it backwards -- the ground to power, power to ground, and the "Load" to the Parking Brake wire on the back of the radio. Flip the switch back and forth a few times and sometimes the video will pop up.
Some fancier units cannot be cheated. They use an internal gyro mechanism that detects movement.
Some even feature bypass codes. By pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote then entering in a code it will permanently allow video.
Be good.

Bypass iXA-W404


The 404 requires multiple signals from two separate wires to turn off the video block. Simply grounding one wire will not work. There are bypass modules that will send these signals to the head unit available on ebay. Just search alpine 404 bypass. Your other option is to use two toggle switches to simulate the parking brake and foot brake signals necessary to disable the video block.

How do I bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play on a Sound Stream vir 7870nrb?


tie the park brake wire to ground permanently. This will bypass the safety feature. You can do it right at the unit., cut the wire short, and jumper it over to ground. Installers usually won't do this as it is a liability.

you arent supposed to be able to play dvds while in motin if the car is in foward motion but heres a little trick most of the dvd players wil not operate unless the park brake sensor has met and that sensor is at the end of your park brake put a coin on it with a magnet on the other side and this may fool the car into thinking the park brake is engaged although it isnt however your park brake light will stay illuminated

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play


There isn't any code that I know of. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

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

HOW TO UNLOCK MY VR3 RADIO TO PLAY DVD MODEL VRVD630


The brown wire labeled parking brake -12v should be connected to the parking brake switch. So that to watch a DVD the parking brake needs to be set. but can be bypassed by connecting to ground.
if connected to the lights it could be your problem
