BYPASS THE KENWOOD DDX8017


Im guessing since this is an in dash dvd player your trying to bypass the emergency brake so it will work with the vehicle in drive. If this is the case all you have to do is take the wire that goes to the emergency brake and ground it somewhere.

How do i take the dvd safety feature off so i can drive with the dvd player on..


There is a wire that you are supposed to hook up to your emergency brake or another source to let it know your are parked. That same wire usually relies on a ground. I just grounded mine to a good ground under the dash and it worked great. Hope this helps and good luck!

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

Parking brake by pass for my VW Jetta


on your main screen, change your source to "A/V In".. you should get a black screen. Touch the upper right corner of the touch screen and it'll pull up a number menu. Type in "7253" then hit OK. from there, there's a choice that says "brake" hit the right arrow till it says off. Then you're off and runnin SON!

E- brake by-pass code


This is the best bypass method for the Dual XDVD8181. Althoug i am not sure if it works for any of the similar models b Dual. My guess it will.

1) Groun the emergency brake wire.I used the radios black groud wire.

2) Insert a DVD and let it play until you hear the sound.Copied DVDS will not work for this.

3) Press STOP on the remote TWICE.

4) Using the remote enter 26604 and press enter .If done correctly you should hear it beep and the video will be viewable.Good Luck.

Help need bypass code or instructions


There should be an extra wire on your wiring harness, labeled for the e-brake light. Find that one. On my Jensen, it's a peach colored wire. In your manual, take a look and see what it says is required for activating the DVD playback feature. If you simply have to pull the brake handle to make it work, then yes, just ground that wire and you're in business.

On my Jensen, there was a sequence that had to be done - the brake had to be applied, released, and reapplied for it to work. What I did initially was to ground the wire and put a switch inline on it. To simulate setting the ebrake, I'd close the switch (completing the ground), then flip it open to break the connection (same as releasing the brake), then flip it back again, and the DVD would play.

I found a little while ago that there is a hidden feature menu on the player that allows the e-brake sequence to be bypassed with a code, which I put in and now it's not an issue.

Take a look at your instruction manual and let me know if it just has to have the e-brake on, or if there's some sort of activation sequence like my Jensen has, and I can firm up the answer.

Ebrake safety feature


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.
