I tried searching around, didnt find anything about where exactly the Parking Break Wire is? my in-dash is required to have its "pink wire" connected to a Parking Break wire. Any idea where i may find it or if its the same color pink? Thanks
I have the AVIC D3, and the trick for it is to move the mute wire up one notch, ground it, and ground the parking brake wire...it tricks the HU into thinking the car is stopped with the parking brake on. I'm not sure if it will work on your model though...
That won't work for the 5700, but you can just hook up a switch between the parking brake wire from your HU and ground to bypass the lockout.
Disclaimer: Bypassing the parking brake lockout is not only dangerous, but illegal in most states. Fines can be incurred, jail time can be spent, and lives can be lost, so do this mod at your own risk. Neither I, nor Club3G, take any responsibility for what happens to you if you do this mod.
alright this is what i did, i connected the parking break wire from the HU to the parking break wire. Even when the parking break is up, theres still no video..i checked the wire connection again and its all connected just fine. Any suggestions on what may be the problem? I should have video because the parking break is up..everything else works, radio, cd's, screen lights up just the dvds dont display..
Yeah, best thing to do for dvd players, like that that need a brake switch, is to put an inline toggle switch. That way you can flip it real quick if a cop pulls you over and he won't be any wiser..... unless of course he sees you flip the switch, lol.
