Hi,

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.

When I see video of my radio dvd pd 733bt pyramid, the display says Frease the following: parking brake audio only! what should I do to get out of the sentence is the display?


That is because it has a safety on it to where you can only watch videos when in park. It doesnt want you watching movies while driving. Easy to bypass if you know what your doing. There is probably a wire on the back of the stereo that is in a bundle that you did not use? It should be relatively long. Maybe add a bit of length to it with some more wire and hook it to the ground on your battery if that doesnt work put it on the positive. Sorry i remember doing this in my camaro dont remember if its pos or neg but you are suppose to hook that wire to somthing on the parking break. Hooking it straight to the battery will bypass the parking break safety.

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.

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

Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player i get the sound but no picture.


its a safety feature, the dvd player can only work when your car is in park or if your park break is on, reason being is that the dvd player is grounded so that when your parked you can watch a movie safely, i know boring!!! so all you need to do is find where its grounded at the park break and re-ground the wire to a area that isn't a break( anywhere other then your break switch) and the dvd will play wen in motion. what i mean by this is that there is a little switch in your centre console where when your break is on the button is down allowing power to the wire, when the break is up it releases the power giving no juice to the wire allowing the dvd player to ground and not work. all you need is to make the wire able to work without being attached to anything other then a live ground. i hope that helped, as i had this problem and was so frustrated until i figured it out take care, matt

Parking brake hook up


This wire goes to the "Hot" side of the parking break switch... When the Parking Break is put on, a switch is closed, thus putting an "Earth" on this wire.. Ya can often bypass this by connecting to earth. Sometimes this wire can be "Hot" +12v so B4 doing anything with unit "On" check this wire for any Voltage.
