One of the wires at the back of the deck should be labeled parking brake. That is the wire that controls video playback. Just ground that wire and you should be good to go.
Usually the wire is pink or orange ..anyway ..you can follow it to the break ....and see what color it has..and when you ground it to the body of the car it will bypass this function ..
If you are not comfortable with switching wires..just pull the break one step ...enough to trick it to think it is on ..but not enough to affect the function ..or the break to be on ..

Unfortunately it's not that simple : the drive lock is done thru an electronic command - the player gets this information from the ECM, not just a simple Park wire.
To make it work the entire wiring of the player must be modified - a fiddly job that must be left to a pro shop (if you can find one that is willing to do it - illegal and severely punishable). Unless of course you want to do it yourself and risk frying the entire electronics of the car.

    No difference in the wiring - you wuil still have to completely modify it.

How do i watch dvds and drive with a pioneer z2 double din


to watch dvds without you having to be in park you have to rewire the wiring to the deck. not the speakerwires or anything like that there should be a pink or orange color wire that comes from the harnest of the back of the deck anyway that wire is the only single wire in its own color besides (red yellow black) these are the wires that give power to your deck. all u have to do is take that one wire left over i think its orange in color and ground it (connect it with the black wiring. that should bypass the brakes from the deck n ypou can watch dvds as you drive but dont forget to also watch the road. :)

It is set up so that you can't you have to do some things with the wiring I believe to get around it. It is technically illegal to do that. If you have any other questions or need further assistance let me know.
Thanks,

Clarion vz400 what do the parking brake wire do and what do i connect it to


connect it to the ground and your video will play, you dont necessary have to connect it to the parking brake, just ground it out, and your dvds will play, if you dont ground it out, the dvd video wont show, it will give you an error message saying that you need to stop driving in order to watch dvds

You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

Cant play dvd when driving on my jenson VM9312


That is due to the parking brake sensor on most DVD players. Since it is higly illegal to play DVDs while driving, as it provides a distraction to the driver, it is frowned upon. However, you can simply ground the parking brake sensor wire, and that should fix the issue of it not playing when driving. Please remember that it is most likely illegal, though.

My lanzar sd31mu says that i cant play a DVD while i drive I want to know what to do. Thank you.!


there is a wire that goes to the parking break warning light switch, simply disconnect to watch while you drive, but this may be illegal so I would say don't do it, not to mention dangerous.

Installed a dvd player but i can't get it to play dvds


On the parking brake under the dash is a switch at the top that actuates the parking brake light. On most vehicles most are two wire switches, but some are one wire switches. If you have a two wire switch then you can unplug it and use a test light with the ignition turned on without starting the vehicle and test the wires to see which is the hot wire and then connect to the one that has no voltage on it because it is the ground for the switch. The wire is used to detect the parking brake position as engaged before it will allow viewing of the DVD player when the vehicle is not moving. When the brake is off the DVD player will not play DVDs, this is a safety measure so the driver will not be distracted while driving. Good Luck, RAC

I need a Dual xdvd8182 code for vido play during drive and a e-brake override code please thanks


Ground the emergency brake wire,i used the black wire.

Insert an original DVD and let it play until you hear the sound.Copied DVDs will not work for this.

Press the STOP button TWICE with the remote.

Using the remote enter 26604 and press enter.If done you shoul hear it beep and the video will be viewable.

You should have a wire on the harness labeled Parking Brake (or similar). This wire needs to be connected at the parking brake....or to a toggle switch. It needs to sense a ground after the radio is powered on in order to play DVDs.
