What do I need to make a nss bypass starter for my 2010 nissan cube

**You are bypassing a Vehicle Safety Feature and risk starting the vehicle 'in gear' or 'by accident'.**
Why do you need to bypass the switch? If it is faulty it needs to be repaired as soon as possible! Bypassing should ONLY be done to to take the vehicle to have the switch repaired and NO other reason.
Some Nissans will let you Start the vehicle using this method. With your foot ******* the brake turn the key to ignition ON and engine OFF. Keeping you foot on the brake shift to neutral. Turn the start key,
Once started drive to the mechanic and get the switch repaired.

Parking Brake Bypass.

i would suggest not ground the cable because as you know that a signal will travel the path of least resistance. you could interfer with your ecm and that is a whole different set of problems that will cost you a ton of money to fix. there is a reason for the safety features. I know it's a real pain, but the devices were designed this way so that the liabilty issues would never come back to bite them. I know this is not what you want to hear, but please rate the solution anyway.......thanks

How do I find out which safety switch is bad on my 2010 New Holland workmaster 55 tractor?

Try setting the parking brake and make sure the mower is in the OFF position.
It should run without having someone sitting on the seat.

Wont shift out of park and red button dorsnt work

do the brake lights behind car work?
are you on flat ground?

you lost the operators guide, sure, car is old.
but it is there, it tells you what to do. (ive posted this 10 times here)
ALL cars with A/T tranny have a park lockout, device (safety)
on all older cars, they have a bypass.
to bypass the park lock safety device in an emergency.

on many cars there is a bypass, method, (a secret part of console to bypass this, i dont have 95 opr, guide to look it up.
this jeep does have a cable from the ignition switch to this feature on the shifter, and they must both work, to get out of park.
is the red button loose, yes., then it has come detached. access it and put the rod back. (inside)

the tests and repair are in the fSM under transmission.

are you on lflat ground, are you parked on a hill.with wheels to the curb? park can stick 2 ways, the parking on hill+curb makes the parking pawl stick inside the transmission. (ask how to solve)
or the park lockout feature, is failing.
one is transmission caused, other is shifter lever parts failing.

every why possible for this to mess up is covered here.

wild tricks> rumors
You can bypass it if you want to get out of park. Just turn the key past the lock position, but stop turning before any accessories turn on. This position will let you shift without the safety switch stopping you.

From here, shift into neutral and start the car. You can then shift into whatever gear you like.

How to bypass parking brake

  • The parking brake wire is a ground engaged when you have the parking brake on. So just ground the wire. Make it a very solid ground or it won't work. You basically changing the grounding location from the parking brake to a different ground. When you put it on a new ground it will be active anytime. Where as with the parking brake, the wire only gets a ground when the parking brake is engaged, follow?
  • As far as just bypassing it flat out as in not using the wire you can't, not for viewing the screen anyway. The ground wire is a safety feature and must be grounded somewhere to view the screen.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do i bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play

Normally, the emergency/parking brake has to be activated/engaged for the video player to operate.

By bypassing, you are simulating this condition even if in reality, the emergency/parking brake is not activated/engaged.

Solution > ground the video player's brake sensor wire rather than connect it to its intended connection point.

In some brands/model/versions of the video player, this would be light green (Pioneer, Clarion, JVC), green (Kenwood),

In some other rands/model/versions of the video player, there would be a bypass switch underneath a sticker, others would need a special adapter, still others have bypass option/feature in the menu/setup and some would require a toggle switch that would connect the dvd brake wire from positive to ground.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. A reminder pls, in some regions bypassing is not allowed.

Good luck and kind regards.
