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.

There is a wire that grounds out when the parking brake is engaged... you can either locate that wire...and ground it... or click the parking brake arm ONE CLICK , which is how to bypass the automatic running lights on most new cars as well.

Bypass parking brake cable on the sony xav-60 car dvd/radio


You can't really do this apart from hooking the wire up-to something which is always live and low currant which will make unit think parking brake is always on.
Apart from that you can't and shouldn't for safety as you can be done for driving without due care and attention, And failing to maintain eyes on the road while in charge of a motor vehicle.
Hook it up to something low voltage and it will assume parking brake is active always and will operate DVD Playback while driving.

Can I watch movies while moving?


There is a wire that goes to the park brake switch. That will need to be permanently grounded to bypass the security feature, but if it's a factory player, it may be integrated into the car's electrical system and may give you a park brake light on the dash if you do this. Prolly best to remove the wire from the park brake switch, and move it to a switch you create on the dask or something, that way you can turn it onn and off at will.
