    Dear ,

    The code is a permanent way of disabling the brake override on the jensen units.

    There are two ways of doing this:

    Insert the DVD

    After the disc loads and plays you will see a blue screen telling you "it is unlawful to drive with a movie blah blah blah"

    the brake sequence and disable the blue screen using the hand brake,
    the switch method or anything else to give the unit its three pulses to
    disable that freakin blue screen.

    (What I did was I installed
    my radio entirely, then took the pink wire and touched for two seconds,
    removed for two seconds and then touched and held the negative pole of
    a mower battery laying on my passenger seat until the screen was no
    longer blue.)

    2) Next, on the main remote press stop twice, then 1, 2, 6, 4.

    You will now see a hidden menu that says:

    Region Code
    Brake Override (I know you're drooling by now)
    Macrovision (Watch all the burned and pirated movies you want if this option is off)
    Loader Version
    Model Version

    Using the right joystick on the unit, navigate to the options of your
    choice, click on them to toggle on, off or which region code you want.

    This is what you want:

    Region Code: 1
    Brake Override ON
    Macrovision: OFF

    your done, click SYS SETUP on the main remote TWICE to save the
    settings and bingo, your done!!!

    The other way of doing this is by not engaging the parking brake sequence, thus you're inputting the code blindly.

    1) Insert the DVD and you'll get the blue screen.

    you have more than one tv, the unit itself will have the blue screen
    but the additional tv's you have plugged in will NOT, they will show
    the dvd menu. Thus you will be able to see the hidden menu on the
    additional screens after inputting the code, but not on the main unit
    because of its blue screen.)

    2) On the main remote, push stop twice and then 1, 2, 6, 4

    3) Push the joystick on the unit SOUTH twice and then click it once.

    4) Press SYS SETUP on the main remote twice to save your settings.

    may take a few tries but you'll get it. This method can be done if you
    don't want to bother temporarily activating the brake sequence, but if
    you only have the unit and no additional tv's, its #$%^&* damn
    hardbecause you can't see the settings your changing.

    I tried to make this as clear as possible.

    This code DOES work.

    Best of Luck!

    the way, this is for informational purposes only .

How to by past the brakes wire for the dvd to play

According to the owner's manual, the pink wire is your parking brake wire and it has a label 'PRK SW' on it. It requires a negative signal to show that the parking brake is engaged. If it is currently hooked to your parking brake, you will need to trace it to where it is connected and remove it first. Be sure not to leave any wires exposed that can short out. Then connect the wire to a source of ground. this can be the black wire coming from the head unit, or a convenient screw nearby that is mounted to the vehicle chassis.

The manual can be found here:

Please note that it is likely illegal to have video playing where the driver is in view of it. Check your local laws before considering making this modification.

Cant play dvd when driving on my jenson VM9312

That is due to the parking brake sensor on most DVD players. Since it is higly illegal to play DVDs while driving, as it provides a distraction to the driver, it is frowned upon. However, you can simply ground the parking brake sensor wire, and that should fix the issue of it not playing when driving. Please remember that it is most likely illegal, though.

My radio is installed but the sound only works when I step on the break pedal. What did I do wrong???

It shows up in the post on my PC.... how about this?

But it sounds as if we are on the same page - so far - anyways.
Next is to verify the subject of this post is - in fact - your radio.
You have listed the Jensen VM9312.
Is this correct??

Vm9312 in dash will not play video

Go to your radio tuner screen and go to your set up page then use your remote and press 5,4,3,2,1,0 and hidden menu will pop up then you will have to press the tool looking button on the left side of the screen and it will give you an option to it off so you dont have to hook up the pink wire.
