Re: bypass parking brake wire
Boss Audio is the easiest in-dash DVD on the market to bypass; all you do is ground the ebrake wire. I recently installed 12 Boss Audio in-dash BV-7300's and did this to all of the decks problem solved. By the way I did this because they were in the back of limousines where the driver couldn't ever even see one of them while he was driving. I don't think there will be a problem, try it.

If you want to watch videos on your unit it is necessary to bypass the parking brake wire from the Kenwood unit. The parking brake wire is light green and the best possible way to bypass the unit is by installing a toggle switch. The toggle switch should be a two wire device. Connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the parking brake wire from the unit. This will allow you to switch the supply on the wire to ground when needed.
Also, in some older Kenwood units you could just as easily connect the parking brake wire to ground and be done with it but, it does not always work.
i believe if you dont have the parking brake hooked up on your unit, you wont be able to watch any thing. check around online or your local audio dealer bout buying a bypass relay so you can drive and watch if you choose to. or hook that wire up right. hope this was helpfull
To answer your question;
You do not need to connect that wire but you need to bypass the parking brake function in the menu.
Here`s the parking brake bypass procedure:
1: Go into AM/FM mode 2: Hit "setup" on the remote control 3: Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each numberentered 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. Hope this help Cheers
what you need is a toggle switch...
put the switch between the parking brake wire, and actual ground,
the black wire will work, just extend the wire so the toggle switch is
accessible, once you do that turn your indash on,
slap a dvd in it, then once it displays the parking brake message,
hit your toggle switch once, if it doesnt get it,
try it multiple times but with a second between clicks,
that should do it and please keep the eyes on the road. :]
i have heard that many of dvd players have an extra wire and instruction manual tell's to connect it to something relaited with parking break (then you hold parking breake it gets ground and completes circut so video starts) so you can connect it to and ground wire with a swich becouse of that you can simulate paking break :) hope it will help :) i have the same problem but just haven't got time to test this :)
