Need to bypass parking brake sensor for pioneer dvd player!plz HELP!!
I have a new pioneer 5700 dvd player I just bought for like 950 from best buy and bought it mainly for my wife and kids and was very annoyed to find out that your supposed to have the green wire hooked up to the parking brake sensor when I put in a dvd and It didnt work, I am not going to drive down the road with my parking brake on slightly so everyone can watch a movie. Someone from my local stereo shop who usually does all of my major installs told me to hook it up to the ground wire and It should work, so I tried that but it still says car must be parked for this function or something like that. I do not want a toggle switch to have to play with either so SOMEBODY please tell me what wire I can hook it up to so that it will let me play dvd's whenever and I will never have to see that screen again, also does anyone know if you can change the background to do something cooler on the newer 5700 pioneer, when I listen to music all it does is have a little blue screen with stupid lines going across the screen and I was wondering if I could change that also, but most important please someone help me I dont want to experiment with all the other wires and the green one and risk ruining the deck, thanks alot,Denny

RE: Need to bypass parking brake sensor for pioneer dvd player!plz HELP!!
IT IS A GROUND WIRE NOT A HOT WIRE your just completing th circuit whne you pull the brake,
just grounding that wire wont fic it , you also need to get a contact on the bottom of the radio soldered together, that disables a gyro in the radio, it can tell if the car is shaking( like when driven) and will also disable the dvd screen
If it was me i would hook it up to ground, thats what i did with my jensen.
but, one thing you can do is ride around with e-brake on one notch.
Right when it says e-brake on instrument panel. Idk if thats bad because if its on the first first notch its not even engaged.
Yea yea I read what you said, the movies are for the "other passengers" in the car not you, because of course YOU would never lose focus of the road when a really good part in a movie is playing [/sarcasm]
It's illegal in most places to have a DVD screen visible to the driver while the car is in motion.. you will get a ticket.
