I am getting an in-dash dvd player installed with the motorized screen as we speak and am wondering how exactly the dvd player knows when the ebrake is on so it knows when to function and when to not. Can I bypass this by just pushing the ebrake a little in until the light comes on?? or is there some way to compltely bypass that saftey feature...??

i've never heard of them being tied into the e-brake most are wired so that they will only work when the vehicle is in park and yes there are ways around it

Thats illegal and if you were to watch TV while your driving you could kill a bus load of nuns or something.

We dont condone that kind of thing on this site, there are only law abiding citizens on here, so please dont talk about things like that.

so yall think that if you are in a tahoe, and have a flip out screen that the passengers cant watch it until its parked?

i think the driver should have enough sense to watch the road and not the movie..

my .02 :flipoff:

Depends on the screen. Older or cheaper screens just have a brake wire that needs to be grounded to bypass it. But newer screens are more tricky. The Pioneer AVID1 or whatever the hell the double din is you need to add a wire toa blank pin ont he harness and ground it. On the AVIC-N1 you need to put a switch to ground on the brake wire, and switch it on-off-on to bypass. On the AVIC-N2, it uses the GPS to detect vehicle movement. As far as I know there is a way to modify the circuit board inside the brain to bypass it but I wouldn't try it. On the Alpine IVA-D300 and I think the 310, you need a regular brake wire and parking brake. You have yo hold the regular brake while you put the parking break on-off-on. To bypass this, just hook up the brake properly and a switch on the e-brake wire, so you can hold the brake, flip it on-off-on and it works. For cheaper screens like the Pionerr 5700DVD, the Panasonic, Jensen, etc. screens, you just ground the parking brake. Same with Sony. I think Kenwood is just grounding a wire too.
