HH REY: I have the same Clarion but it is the VZ401 I just installed my head unit
and grounded the green wire with ground. It never worked like in other
stereo's so I came to youtube and found your video.
So the only way to bypass is to buy a switch? So if I buy the switch I have
to hook up the green wire to the switch and also ground the switch? sorry I
am new to this...
AmusedPT20: Hi all I have a ripspeed dvd740 and I have all cables, ISO lead from
Halfords and the lead that comes with the stereo. Now I am having problems
with powering it up, I have connected up all cables and still nothing,
I have read the card that comes with the device and apparently all I need
to do is connect the 'park brake' cable to a ground cable? Not sure what
that means however Halfords advised me that I just simply connect the pink
wire which is loose, to the a black cable.
Can somebody please help as I am getting very frustrated.
alan thomas: hi i have the ripspeed dv740 in my vauxhall zafira but i can not watch dvds
at all even when not in motion how can i get it working please many thanks
Johnny Bouldin: @fhstitans I dont have the ipod hook up, but i do have the new iphone, it
makes think twice about buying that add on
John Best: @Gtracer009 uhm... the addon = a freaking 20 dollar ipod cable. or 34
dollar for the video one. It plugs into the usb jack. or USB/RCA's for
video. With that if you can get to the back of the deck which obviously
after what you did you can. And you know how to plug in a usb cable it
shouldn't be hard. btw you can also ues the bluetooth for iphone video but
it sounds like crap.
chicano123456: @jjuradojr1 does this work on a vx400 calrion also
adamidus: @Gtracer009 Oh dear im so very sorry, i have installed no end of these with
INSULATED duct tape, with no issues, its FAT yanks like you that read
something on here and are like "right i have to deal with that" WORLD
POLICE!!!!!!! freak yeah!!!!!
abcdasdf24: Explain that one more time?
Kurt Owens: I connected relay to amp wire but the amp wire kicks on the relay but that
doesn't work. You need it to be grounded when radio boots then needs to
unground and then reground. I'm assuming you can't just boot and radio works
William Loy: thanks that will help me alot now i dont have to be scared of trying to
hoook up a screen
Orlando McAlister: how do you do the bypass if you dont have the remote control to go to the
cdplayer and if you dont know how to hookup the on/off switch like you
jjuradojr1: @Gtracer009- you will no longer need a toggle switch. A relay will be used
to control the ground circuit to the ebrake safety circuit. Controlled by
the antenna trigger, the relay will remove ground from the circuit when
listening to the tuner. When switched to DVD mode, antenna circuit
deenergizes the relay which switches ground to the Ebrake circuit thereby
tricking the unit into thinking the ebrake has been depressed. Works
automatically- no manual switching at all.
jjuradojr1: @aiaiaiyaiyai - i used a standard Bosch 5 pin automotive relay
nuemusikent: can you do this with a boss bv9990 what color is the braking wire or dvd
92DAb18: Yea same question. How do u bypass it if you don't have the pink cable
a.k.a parking wire??
tazzkb: 2008 sts plz help
mminc81: I tried this and it doesn't work. When you want to watch videos, you close
the circuit, open it, then close it, this time leaving it closed?
klapkas: u can use a relay and it works perfectly, no need for switching so many
2001bluerata: @jjuradojr1 Ok correct me if I'm wrong, so what you're saying is to use the
antenna lead and one of the grounds to close the relay to allow the unit to
be grounded after it's powered on?
MrBiggdaddie: i have the vz400 and i cant get any audio from it,and what wires do u use
to bypass the brake,like colors? thanks
Ashley Blackwell: Thanx allot, sweet
isaacv375: @jjuradojr1 Hey thanks i used the relay and it does works percfectly....
way much easier that if i wouldve use the switch.
robert jackson: can someone help me out, i want to bypass the parking brake wire for a
power acoustik ptid 8920. how do i do it???
aiaiaiyaiyai: @jjuradojr1 What did you use for a relay?
Bobby Daytona: i have one and luv it bt the only thing i dnt like is how when u hav an
ipod hooked up to it when u pick a song and then go back its starts back to
the very beginning of the playlist
jjuradojr1: @2001bluerata - YES- this is EXACTLY what i'm saying. I've had mine hooked
up for months now with no issues. For those of you who think all you need
to do is ground the wire and all is well- this IS NOT THE CASE for Clarion
adamidus: i really hate to make people look like theyre doing things the hard way,
but did you know that if you tape the parking switch wire to a metal part
of the structure of the actual casing of the stereo, this eliminates this
function because it has created a ground? No? i did it and it works, use
duct tape for strength, as mine came off!!
jjuradojr1: @Gtracer009 - YES- this eliminates the toggle switch. The relay itself
becomes the switch that activates the ground circuit to the parking brake
wire - to turn off the safety feature.
1purplehaze4: so its a ground connection for sure?the homboy said to connect it to the
power wire but all the vids i see are to the ground.im confused im jus
tryna hotbox n watch moovies here. so use a switch or straight wire it?
jjuradojr1: I finally took the time to make a video of how to do this automatically
with the use of a 5 PIN automotive relay thereby eliminating the use of a
toggle switch. Click on over to my channel and see the video. If you have
any questions- let me know.
hippa2dahoppa2: i got a few questions i been struggling with this the past 2 days. ok first
i have 2 diff switches one switch has 3 prongs and one has 2 prongs. 1. on
the 2 prong switch does it matter which connection on the switch goes to
the radio and which goes to the ground? on the 3 prong illuminated
switch(this answer doesnt matter just curious) theres the ground, 12v, and
acc how would i use this switch i tried neg on switch to ground and 12v on
switch to radio. last question can i run ground switch to
jjuradojr1: If you're capable of wiring a toggle switch to bypass your ebrake safety
circuit, u should be MORE than capable enough to wire a bosch 5 pin relay
to provide ground to the ebrake safety circuit using the antenna lead of
the radio. 4 simple connections to the relay (2grounds, antenna trigger,
brake bypass wire). This is a more professional way of automatically
getting around the ebrake safety circuit. If you need any help with the
wiring, let me know and i'll explain how to wire it up.
jjuradojr1: @aiaiaiyaiyai - a standard 5 pin automotive Bosch relay
g g: hey please i connected my pyle indash dvd PLBT74G everything connected
right added the pink wire called lamp in so i can watch dvd and the brown
parkin brake to the ground to watch dvds while driving , but the front
buttons of the unit have to be illuminated blue color and they are not
illuminated they are off, what should i do to have the front buttons of the
unit illuminated how they supposed to look wit light blue color? Thank you
nadzorka2929: Some stereos use a ground and some use power, you never need a switch1
Either use a different ground or run to power the stereo is using so the
stereo thinks its in reverse or braking all the time so when you switch to
a camera channel or DVD it will just be on!!!
alc84: this video is stupid. While you install this or any device such as this jut
connect the parking brake wire to the ground and it will work fine. You
dont need some switched installed elsewhere to make it work. Its all about
of the instiallation process to make it work just fine.
hippa2dahoppa2: the batterys negative because under my dash is all plastic i cant find the
ground, also could i use the nut/bolt that is in the middle back of my
radio as a switch ground? i currently have the cars ribbon/wire grounded to
that in the back of my radio so would it be safe to also put the switch on
the same ground?
Donnie Nute: do u no how to do it where it stays off the blue screen i mean
nadzorka2929: It's how i have my camera setup, the cameras are always on when the car is
on and the monitor channel is activated so whether you use the monitor
image as a background and or used it's channel it will always be on when
the car is on so you don't need a switch!
elice05: Cooool! U went skydiving! How much was it? Ive been meaning to go also.
Johnny Bouldin: @adamidus Its different from radio brand to radio brand. Kenwoods if you
just solder the parking brake to the ground its ok. Clarions you have to
activate the parking brake after the radio is on. So if I was dumb enough
to DUCT TAPE a wire to my radio it would do nothing. DUCT TAPE is
conductive and could short circuit something. So I suggest that you take
that off and do it the right way by SOLDERING it to your ground connection.
adamidus: To add to my previous comment, the parking swicth usually is a pink
insulated wire, if no metal on the wire is exposed (cheaper units) then
trim the end of it.....
Johnny Bouldin: @jjuradojr1 So does that eliminate the need to toggle the switch
multipliable times? I tried just directly connecting the e-brake wire to
the common ground. That did not work, that is why I installed the switch.
