Turn on the player, start the radio option, go into the setup menu, tap the language tab, ON THE REMOTE press "stop, stop, 5,4,3,2,1" This will bring up the secret menu, you do not need to connect the pink wire

It wont show the movie u can here it but there is no screen it says u must b in park


This is a safety measure implemented by most mobile video manufacturers. The idea is to keep people from watching movies while they are driving as it is not a safe practice. If you have installation knowledges you can bypass this by finding the "Park Brake" wire (usually pink) and grounding it out. A local car audio shop *might* be willing to bypass this for you with some money and persuasion.

I have a dvd/cd stereo and it is asking me to install the emergency wire which is the pink wire that turns out to be a ground where do i hook up inorder to watch the video while car is in motion


you need to install a toggle switch run one terminal to a ground wire or any metal grounded to the car and hook the pink wire to the other terminal. flick the switch off and on a couple of times to bypass the warning screen.

Dvd player for my car


DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, 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.

Parking Brake Bypass


Hi

You need the remote to do the code thing, or try hooking the parkbrake sensor up to full time power to trick the unit into thinking that the parkbrake is off. Try that and see how you go. If it doesnt work that way, try taking it to full time chassis(earth)
