What code? Do you mean an unlock code? You'd probably have to go through the manufacturer for that. If you mean a code to allow DVD playback while moving, there isn't such a thing. To do that you have to wire it a certain way (which is easy).

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, 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.

I just purchased a car with a Jensen VM9512 and it is asking me for a security caode. Can you help


You need to contact the former owner, or any Jensen dealer or Jensen directly via online. You might check your glovebox for a card w/code on it. Those codes are very specific and might require you pulling radio and getting serial # off it. (sorry didn't have a better answer)

VM9512 no audio


Run your blue wire on your harness plug the blue and white of the head unit. The blue wire on the deck is for your radio antena and turns off when you switch to cd. This should fix your problem.

Security codes


Contact Jensen and tell them you have to unhook the battery to fix the car and the deck is already in the car when you purchased it. They might make you turn it in and charge a fee. Goodluck.
