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.

Where can I find the memory wire for the radio


Car radios don't have a 'memory wire'. Memory is held in integrated circuit chips called EPROMS, (electronically programmable, read only modules).

So how do wire this set set up to a bridged amp any help would be appreciated


assuming that is a dvc dual 4 ohm speaker, and you have a 2 ohm bridged amp, you run a positive from each side of the speaker into the bridged positive of the power amp, and run a negative from each side of the speaker into the negative bridged terminal of the amp. if, indeed, you have 2 4 ohm voice coils, running them bridged in parallel wiring will bring the load to 2 ohms. if you have 4 voice coils, of 4 ohms apiece, you could run all 4 parallel into the amp, but that would bring the load down to 1 ohm, and you would have to make sure you8r amp can support 1 ohm operation.

I have a boss 400w riot 2-4 channels,how do i connect the high level wires? Because stereo doesn't have rca's


to use the high level leads, you have to isolate the wires going to each speaker (if using 4 channel mode) or isolate the wires going just to the rear if you are using 2 channel mode. you have to strip a small piece of the insulation off each speaker wire, and run it into the amps high level input harness. if you dont have the high level input harness, you can get a 2 channel high level to rca adapter for around $20. basically, you are tapping into the signal to the stock speakers to feed music to the amp. make sure you get all your positives and negatives correct. brighter wires are usually positive; however you may be faced with sa speaker which uses a grey wire, and another grey wire- the second with a black line. you will have to, again, turn to internet research to determine which is positive and negative, if the colors are not obvious.

I am not getting a bluetooth signal from my car stereo. Can this be fixed?


Does specification of your cr stereo say it has bluetooth? If it says, does it has a switch-on function? Look at manual, in setting! Once bluetooth is on, it should start sync with other device, headphone ir speaker, presume

Car radio not turning off when the car is turn off


This has to do with the way the radio is wired. It's best to go into a motor-mechanics or car-audio shop to have them wire it correctly
