Question about Car Audio & Video
I have 2007 GMC Yukon with factory dvd player that drops down from the ceiling and one in the dash. You can only watch the one in the dash when the car is in park. Is there a way to watch when the car is in drive?
WHat you need to do is get the wire that has been connected to your parking brake wiring, and simply connect it to earth. You will then trick the unit into thinking it is parked, and safe to watch a DVD.

Does this work for 2007 GMC Yukons also?

The best way to do it is connect the wire that has to be hooked up up to a a switch then hook that switch to a ground. cuz on a lot of the after market flip up monitors everytime you turn it on you have to apply the ebrake then release it then apply it again for it to run so on mine i hid a switch under my dash so you cant even see it and when i want to watch it i just flick it on and off and then back on again and it works. most of the aftermarket flip ups have the same sequence. if you simply just ground it it wont work because you have to do that sequence.

There is a wire that connects to a sensor on the parking brake to indicate that is is engaged.
I went to Best Buy and asked one of the install guys and they told me where it was on my Nissan Armada.
Throw them a few dollars and im sure they can help you.
Best of Luck.

The wire that connects to the ebrake wire to a separate switch and just hide the switch in the car so when the screen comes up and says you cant watch while driving just flip the switch and the screen will come up. by flipping the switch it makes it think that it is connected to the ebrake. i have a dual flip up dvd touch screen and thats what i did.

The eBrake goes to ground whenever you apply the parking brake. So If you connect that brakewire from the Eclipse system to a ground(black) wire on your car (you can just tap it into the car stereo black wire) and that will trick your system into believing that you have your parking brakes on.

The best way to conquer this is to connect the brake wire from the stereo to a ground wire. This worked on two my aftermarket radios. It was suggested by Circuit City.

1: Go into AM/FM mode (YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HOOK UP THE EBRAKE WIRE)
2: Hit "setup" on the remote control
3: Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each number entered
4: A new menu will appear. Touch the button that has the hammer/screwdriver on it in the upper left-hand part of the screen.
5: Select Brake bypass to "ON" and hit the "X" near the bottom of the screen.
6: Use the unit wisely and above all safely. A ticket is one thing, causing a fatal accident due to negligence is another.
