you need to hook up the foot brake like it said but hook up a switch on the parking brake wire to ground do not hook it up to parking brake just a switch ground one side ant togle it while your foot is on the brake once the screen is on leave the switch in that position you will have to do this every time you turn the car off but you can see the screen while driving
I've got an Alpine CVA1004 and use my ipod on the aux input of the headunit. The alpine-ipod interface was too confusing for me, with the ipod connected to the aux input, I just control the music from the Ipod, I find it easier that way.
Doing so is very dangerous.
I admit it is an annoyance because some basic features you can't even control while driving.
Once again I would really suggest not bypassing the saftey feature.
If you still wan't to go threw with it there's 2 different ways. One of which is applying the e-brake ever so slightly so that the brake light comes on on your dash but could also wear out your e-brake over time doing this. The other is permanently grounding the e-brake wire that comes from the cva-1004. You must cut the wire and ground it (on the cva-1004 side of the cut wire) and insulate the other side of the wire you cut so that it dosen't interfere with the normal operation of the brake light.
Rember..... When you have an accident you were warned!
there is a wire on the back of the unit marked hook up 2 parking brake....what i did was ran that wire to a toggle switch and to the cigarette lighter ground and mounted the toggle switch on my dash...then all u have 2 do is flip the swith off and on and it tricks the player to thinking the car is in park and will play right away...
lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it
