Question about Car Audio & Video
The parking break switch in your in-car video player is a safety feature that is required by law, bypassing or disabling this switch is NOT recommended by any means. The answer I am providing is for informational purposes, neither fixya or myself are responsible for any consequences of the use of the information herein.
there are two ways to do this, there are marketed products designed to do this that come with a few parts and an instructional dvd. Or you may purchase simply a toggle switch, and some wire, and do the following.
There is a wire connected from the back of the dvd player deck to the parking break indicator bulb or wire on the dashboard (the light that comes on when your parking break is on). This wire can be disconnected from the parking break lamp and attached to a toggle switch, and then to a power source (12v+). With most manufacturers there is a "code" to enable video. Generally it's something to the effect "turn the parking break on for 1 second, off for one second, and then back on, and leave it on". Whatever the code is for your unit, you may now do the same with your switch to activate video.
