I grounded my Jensen to a screw inside the dash. I had to put a switch on it though - Jensen requires an on-off-on sequence with the parking brake, which applies and removes the ground. I duplicate this by throwing the switch. Check the manual or online references to see if you have to do this. If you do, you'll need a switch. If not, you can just ground the wire.

You can try attaching the parking brake directly to ground to bypass the issue. However, some systems require a change in voltage each time system is powered down. If this is the case, you can place a toggle switch inline with the parking brake wire, attaching one side to the wire and the other side to ground, allowing you to apply the ground and remove it when necessary.

I am about to install my boss bv8962 unit into my vehicle but I want the parking break safety feature bypassed. What do I do differently during installation so that my passengers will be able to watch tv...


Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

Clarion nx700 parking break bypass


Wrong. To bypass the lockout feature so you can see the DVD play anytime - you need to toggle the green wire away from ground (from Low to High - i.e. momentary switch) so the radio sees the rising edge of the 12Vdc signal. The green wire is normally high and is tied low. When you put the parking break on - it opens the loop.


A switch will trigger the Opto Isolator inside the head and bypass the lock out feature. This works fine - or you can spend the $25 on the bypass module - that does the same thing - but works as an electronic toggle ~ based off the remote wire and an internal relay in the module. The module will toggle the green wire every time the radio powers up.

You do not need a bypass code. Pull out the stereo unit, take the parking brake wire and disconnect it from the parking brake sensor ground. Reconnect it to the radios ground wire and this will tell it that the vehicle is always in park and your videos will work while driving. It must be the stereos ground not just grounded to the frame or something. Must be a live source ground wire.

Parking brake safety bypass


If you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire

if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!

Bypass didnt work


Connect the parking break wire to the chasis ground. This is a safety feature that is used so the driver will not view the movie. I have these units installed on our boats and just simply hook to ground.
I hope this helps!
