    what you have to do is trick out the dash. Turn on your indash, put a movie and play it. It should say that your brake has to be on to play. When that screen pops up you have to ground the pink wire in a particular way.. first you have to touch the brake wire to the ground for a second or two, take it off for like 5 seconds and then touch it again to the ground for about another 2.. repeat that for a couple of times, it should work rite away though. i heard that alpine are more complicated but works on other cheaper brands

    do NOT buy anything to enable this feature. just tie the parking brake bypass into the ground wire on the back of the HU and it will work. you don't need a switch unless you want to turn the feature on and off.

    careful when driving though, a guy in alaska is up for double murder for killing two people because he was watching a DVD when driving and had a wreck

How to watch pyle plts76u car dvd whilst driving and how to bypass parking brake...

If you want to use your dvd player whilst driving then i will tell you the best way to go about doing this but please read these warnings first.

1. any work you do at your own risk
2. it highly illegal to use any dvd or telly whilst driving
3. if caught using dvd whilst driving you will get a big fine and points on your license for driving whilst distracted.
4. if you have an accident whilst the dvd player is driving you wont be insured and you will be liable and charged with dangerous and reckless driving.
5. any short due to work carried out can cause you to destroy the stereo and in some cases cars have been set on fire, so if you are unsure what you are doing then please dont go ahead with this work as you could end up in a right mess.

Ok now the warnings are out of the way.

I take it you dont want to watch the dvd whilst driving but a passenger does i dont reccomend this work be carried out if the driver is planning on watching the dvd whilst driving, its not worth the risk its just to dangerous.

How To Bypass The Parking Brake To Watch DVDs'

the best way of doing this would be to get hold of the instruction manual to install this stereo you might get this off the net but if not you can contact the makers and they will be able to send you one for free, just the cost of postage to pay.

Now to actually bypass the parking brake witch dont let you play dvd whilst driving what you need to do is locate the wire that goes to the parking brake now this wire should be a brown wire unless somebody has re wired the stereo to fit other cars, once you are sure you have located the correct parking wire thats brown you then need to remove this wire from the parking brake. Now you need to earth this wire out to any metal on the car and secure it to that metal part this should then bypass the parking brake system for you.
You do this at your own risk you can destroy the stereo and in some cases set fire to the car so if you have never done this type of work before then please leave this to somebody who knows what they are doing.

Take your time, make sure you have the correct earth wire any other wire and you will short the stereo out destroying the stereo and possibly your car, so be warned.

Why when playing my dvds the screen turns blue and says screen disabled for your safety?

Your parking brake wire is either not correctly installed or your parking brake is not engaged. It is illegal to drive while watching video so the player will disable video if you are not parked.

I cannot play DVDs without the parking brake engaged how do i bypass this?

I ran across of alot of lcd head units that requiers the parking brake wire connected so it will show the video, (usually just audio if parking brake not on). But if you connect that wire to a proper ground (screen always on) or a grounded switch so you can control it maually (turn it on or off when you choose)

turn on the player, start the radio option, go into the setup menu, tap the language tab, ON THE REMOTE press "stop, stop, 5,4,3,2,1" This will bring up the secret menu, you do not need to connect the pink wire
