I've never seen a code that allows it, but you can do it in the wiring harness. 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.

Brake code


Hi,

Your unit has been previously programed with a code. Is this unit brand new from a shop or did you buy it form someone? If it's new you should contact the shop where you bought it from. If it's from someone, then contact them for the code. Unfortunately there is no way for us to bypass or reset the code...only Kenwood can reset the code. Sorry...

On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

Brake Bypass Code


I just spliced the brake wire into my cigarette lighter positive wire to provide the voltage necessary to bypass the parking brake requirement for video. Worked like a charm. It takes almost no voltage to bypass it. Even just licking your fingers and holding the bare wire allows video to show.

Ground the Green "Brake" wire to your frame. This will fool the system into thinking that your brake is engaged.
