The yellow and blue wire requires a handbrake connection. Connect it to a chassis ground and test.

Can't control sound ...Gets LOUD.... Audiovox not helpful to date


actually there would have been some short circuit in the connections...

that would have affected the sound system...
so only you get the spikes.....check for the affected parts and replace them

Installation question


You don't need a dash kit as the vehicle has a DIN opening already. You will need a wire harness for the vehicle, Metra 70-5511 and a 12 ft. A/V RCA cable to go from head unit to the monmitor, and some patience :-)

Here is a pic of the harness http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882309120

Take care,

NO DVD PIC


Do you have the manual, on a kenwood i think the brake wire is green, this wire is usually quite long, long enuff to go from head unit to your handbrake. You need to connect this wire to the vehicle chassis( ground). This may sort you out. You would normally have a message saying parking brake not applied. Do you get a display when listening to radio or cd????

I cant getta dvd picture on my kenwood kvt 719dvd...brake wire???


Did you install it, they generally sense whether youre moving by having a connection to your handbrake, if this is not connected the unit thinks youre moving but usually gives an on screen message.
To disable this you usually have to ground the brake sensor wire( connect it to the body of the vehicle)
YOU TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monitor will not show dvd


you need to put the dvds handbrake wire to a suitable earth point and then your dvds will play fine i think the wirings colour is a yellow with a blue tracer line on the wire if its an alpine dvd player and the same is on all the monitors themselves that wire will have to be connected to a good earthing point but luckily on the monitors they have a black earth wire running to them so just splice that yellow/blue wre into the black earth wire on each headrest monitor !
