Sounds like it was wired backwards. The car in-dash receivers with video are suppose to be wired so that they will only play when the parking brake is on.

You should check your manual with your in-dash and find out how the parking brake sense wire is suppose to be wired, typically people just wire them with a switch to ground or +12V (CHECK MANUAL FOR WHICH ONE) and then flip the switch when they want it to play video; or they just wire it permanently to whatever is needed, but on some receivers that won't work because it checks for that.

Kenwood kvt-719dvd plays dvd but wont show picture


It is probably that the parking safety wire wasn't hooked up properly, or at all. Most in dash dvd players are equipped with a motion safety device to prohibit the driver from viewing movies and such on the monitor while the vehicle is in motion. The wire for this needs to be hooked to the parking brake light wiring. This will ensure that when the parking brake is on, the dvd can sense that the vehicle is stopped, and should therefore show the image.

Installed a dvd player but i can't get it to play dvds


On the parking brake under the dash is a switch at the top that actuates the parking brake light. On most vehicles most are two wire switches, but some are one wire switches. If you have a two wire switch then you can unplug it and use a test light with the ignition turned on without starting the vehicle and test the wires to see which is the hot wire and then connect to the one that has no voltage on it because it is the ground for the switch. The wire is used to detect the parking brake position as engaged before it will allow viewing of the DVD player when the vehicle is not moving. When the brake is off the DVD player will not play DVDs, this is a safety measure so the driver will not be distracted while driving. Good Luck, RAC

Car in dash cd/dvd player


Most in car dvd players require a connection to the parking brake so it will not play a dvd while you are driving (in dash only). The easiest way around it is to run a 12v wire to the lead of the parking brake wire on the dvd player. With a constant 12v it should play when the ignition is in the on position.

DVD player playing while driving


It's not that difficult. Get a two position toggle switch and run the wire that normally goes to the brake, into one end of the toggle. Then run a wire from the other end of the toggle to a ground. Whenever the message comes up on the screen about viewing while driving, flip the toggle switch on then off and it will bypass the safety feature. That's how I did mine and two other buddies of mine.

Parking Brake Wire


I have not a solution but a remedy. If you would like to be able to watch movies while driving, follow these simple instructions. Take out the dvd player, Get one simple toggle switch, install somewhere easily accesible. Now run the parking brake wire from the dvd player to one of the prongs on the switch. Now find a good solid metal ground under the dash, (mounting brace,etc.). Run a wire from this ground to the other prong on the switch. Now reinstall the dvd player, turn on, when blue screen appears, flick the switch, hold for 5 seconds, then flick it back, in a few seconds it should go to the normal screen.

Trying to find the parking brake


YOU DONT NEED TO HOOK THE PINK WIRE UP JUST PUT IN A DVD AND TYPE IN 543210. THIS IS A BYPASS CODE SO YOU CAN PLAY DVD WITHOUT HOOKING UP THE PINK WIRE. YOU MUST HOLD DOWN THE 0 FOR 4 SECONDS WHEN PUTTING IN THE CODE.
