On the bottom side of the deck there is a small silver sticker. Remove the sticker and you would see a tiny switch. Just flip the switch to the other position and remember to ground the light green wire. Goodluck.

How to by pass the e brake wire


at this time there isn't a code bypass for this model. the easiest thing to do so that you can play video while in motion. is to put a toggle switch on the parking brake wire of the dual screen. then do the ebrake pattern on the switch instead of the ebrake in the car

1. disconnect the parking brake wire of the dual from ur ebrake wire in your car.
2. take your 2 wire toggle switch and connect one wire to Ground(metal)
3. take the other wire and connect it to the parking brake wire of the dual screen.

if i remember correctly, the pattern for the dual screens is.
1. starting in the off position.
2. on for 2 secs
3. off for 2 secs.
4. then on .. the the video will show.

hope this helps

E-Brake Problem


you have connected it correctly, that is just how those units work. there is a pattern to the ebrake for it to view video.

1. start with the ebrake off and follow this pattern.

2. on for 2 secs, off for 2 secs, then back on

or you can just put a toggle switch instead of connecting it to the cars ebrake wire. wire as follows

1. use a 2 wire switch.

2. connect one wire of the switch to ground

3. connect the other one to the ebrake wire of your dual unit.

4. then you would do the same pattern with the switch as you would have with your ebrake. this will allow you to view while in motion without your ebrake engage

hope this helps

Where does the green wire go


the green wire is the "parking brake wire" which is supposed to go to the cars e-brake wire that grounds with it is engaged. this is a safety feature to keep you from watching video while driving. if you would like to watch videos while in motion. you will need to put a toggle switch on this wire.... one wire from the switch to 'Ground/metal chassi or black wire behind the radio , the other side of the switch to the liight green wire. it will act like your ebrake switch therefor allowing you to watch video while in motion.

How to get around wiring to the parking brake so i can watch mov


I may as well tell you as this isnt exactly a secret. You must put a switch in line so that the green ebrake wire sees nothing when you turn the vehicle on and then after the deck turns on you turn the switch on so it sees ground. That will bypass it for you.
After starting up, however, it needs to see a dual pulse. So you must switch it to ground 2x before the video will show.


Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

The way you bypass the E Brake is you have to ground the wire to the radio sleev itself. There are two different peices. The radio itself and the sleeve that holds the radio in place. Take the yellow wire (the ebrake wire, not the yellow ignition wire) and open the metal connector up just slightly. Attach that wire to the top of the sleeve on 1 of the teeth located near the front of the unit. You have to make sure that the connection is good or it will not ground. Next slide the clear plastic over the wire so the only connection is with the tooth.
Then Insert a cd or dvd in the player. Press play on the remote and then push stop 2 X times on the remote. After you have done that press 26604 on the remaote and then press enter. This will permanently unlock the parking brake feature and allow you to watch dvds while in motion. If you need any further help you can eamial me.
