You have to take your stereo deck out and disconnect your safty wire. Doing this will let your screen come out and work while in drive or park or any gear.

The green parking brake wire from the Jensen unit needs to be connected to chassis ground. This will enable the viewing of DVDs.

Here's what you need to know: DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On the 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 mine, 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 the manner of the e-brake cycle I mentioned earlier.

I cant play dvds with out the parking brake on but i have my jensen in my house right now so how do i get the override code to come up


I don't know where everyone keeps coming up with the idea that there's a code you can enter to defeat this lockout.

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.

How to watch dvd on dash monitor while driving.


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.

the black box may be the very thing to protect your unit from harsh electrical environment such as coil back emf which can send much higher volts than 12 to the unit. it may be possible that the unit has been zapped and killed the video section. try installing in another car or even on the bench with a car battery.
