Yep - take the wire that is supposed to be wired to the e-brake light, and put it to ground instead (just find a good screw in the metal framework inside the dash, and ground it there). Put a switch inline on the wire, just in case you have to do some sort of on-off-on sequence with the brake (Jensen requires this). Then you'll be set.

Sound works but there is no display on the monitor. it worked for the first few days then now cant see nothing. Does the park brake wire have to be hooked up in order to show the display cause i know it...


  • Yes it does. The emergency brake wire is a safety feature. If you don't have it hooked up it won't even display anything. If you do have it hooked up then you have to have the emergency brake engaged to be able to view DVD'S. The manufacturer does this so people can't just unhook the brake wire and watch DVD'S while driving

My dvd & usb is not working. Everytime i put a dvd in or try and use the usb a blue screen appears and says WARNING PLEASE STOP WATCH VIDEO PLAYER.


the parking brake wire must be connected to the parking brake system of you car. When the parking brake is engages, the LCD will be allowed to view your video. If not, the screen will produce an image saying, parking brake. this is a feature designed for the driver not to watch a video while driving. The video output on this unit will not be affected by this, el wire to connect is Pink - parking brake. this is wire connect with ground.

How can I watch dvd on my kenwood radio while I drive


you have to bypass the parking brake safety switch. Basically, right now it is wired to the ground on your parking brake. Figure out where it is by following the wire from the head unit. Disconnect it, and connect the parking brake wire to the ground for the radio itself.

My lanzar sd31mu says that i cant play a DVD while i drive I want to know what to do. Thank you.!


there is a wire that goes to the parking break warning light switch, simply disconnect to watch while you drive, but this may be illegal so I would say don't do it, not to mention dangerous.

Bypassing car dvd parking brake


Usually the wire should be grounded. Connect the wire to a ground point via a switch (is illegal to watch TV/DVD while you're driving)

BYPASS


The security device was created to avoid you from watching DVD's while driving. It is simple to bypass. Simply take the parking brake wire (blue/yellow stripe wire) and connect it to the a ground wire (all black wire). This will trick the DVD player into thinking that the car is in park with the parking brake on at all times.

Parking brake


If you have the VM9410 then there is a way to play dvd's even when you are driving. You must ground out the pink wire in the harness. This allows you to watch dvd's even when driving. good luck!
