Yes, it can be done: all you need to do is to connect the handbrake wire to the ground and the speedo sensor to 12 v. But i must warn you that this is illegal and severely punished - huge fines.

Is there any way to bypass hooking up the e-brake wire for the vr3 Roadaster car stereo


To get passed the brake issue there should be a lose/bear end wire at the back of the head unit - just attach it some how to the metal head unit cage, this should hopefully bypass the problem

Hope This Helps

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play


I think the wire that should go to your hand brake is green, all you need to do to bypass this is hook it to an earth.

Bypass parking brake for VR3


Hi, I had the same prob with mine. Pretty easy fixed. There is an earth wire connected to the park brake switch, you have to disconnect it. If you are not savvy with car stereo installation, I would advise you take it to strathfield or another car stereo installer - it is a quick and easy job and they shouldnt charge you more than 20 bucks for it.... if that. Beware though, playing movies in your field of view is VERY distracting and dangerous..... and illegal.

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play


There isn't any code that I know of. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

HOW TO UNLOCK MY VR3 RADIO TO PLAY DVD MODEL VRVD630


The brown wire labeled parking brake -12v should be connected to the parking brake switch. So that to watch a DVD the parking brake needs to be set. but can be bypassed by connecting to ground.
if connected to the lights it could be your problem
