There are two ways to complete this project:

1st

underneath the mounting bracket of the radio not the brain theres a silver sticker like mentioned above there are two silver solder points right beneath the sticker it must be jumped with a wire or you can use the solder to connect the two contact points after this you must still ground the green parking brake wire to the car.


2nd-(also my favorite choice and the one I'm using on my N5 & on my 7800dvd those who know pioneer know what i'm talking about)

buy a ptr7 pheriphial device and wire as follows (they come factory ready to bypass alpine and pioneer units)

wire as follows-white wire to green parking break of the deck your bypassing
red wire to vehicles 12v source
green wire from device to remote
black wire to vehicle ground wire
final important step I know because this happended to me
make sure you take a little screwdriver agfter wiring or something and switch the
PTR 7 to the off position-or else this will make the PTR7 not function correctly

I dont think these solutions will work. A simple solution follows. Under the unit, there is a silver sticker. remove sticker. there are two solder points under sticker. You need to solder a jumper between the two points. either a piece of wire, or like I did just create the jumper from the solder. I will warn you. Be careful to not over heat the area. Also, this will void your warranty.

Is there a way I can watch a DVD movie on my Pioneer AVIC-Z2 screen without having to put on my parking brake?


Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.

Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.

Avic bypass


The original Avic N1 only needed to have the parking brake wire grounded for video in motion. Then, the latter series came out and on the underside of the in-dash unit, they have a foil sticker that needed to be removed and a jumper carefully soldered on the circuit board. Avic N2's had a switch installed under this sticker to avoid people from making soldering mistakes. I think the N2 brain may be looking for an N2 unit and giving you trouble. more info on this subject is available @ www.avic411.com.

Bypass for N2


there are to steps, very simple...

solder two points under the silver sticker on the bottom of the head unit (pay a pro! don't mess up your deck!) then you ground the light green parking brake wire (attach it to the black ground wire coming out if the same harness) this will give you "full function". i have this unit and have the upgrade, it works.

You have to bypass the Parking Safety feature. Here is the info I have found. I have not verified it myself for accuracy, so use at your own risk. AVIC-N2 lockout bypass: Underneath the MAIN unit (not the hideaway) is a small silver sticker, peel this back. There are two contacts with the label "R197". Drop a bit of solder between these to connect them. Also, you must ground the Parking Brake wire.
