  1. Ok, what I'm looking for is... How simple is it to bypass the parking brake wire on my Kenwood DXN7190HD DVD/Navigation Headunit? I am looking to play DVDs while driving for road trips, and just to ride around with people and play music videos. I know this said activity is a ticketable offense in every state (I believe). I am just wondering how it is done. I used to work in the Circuit City Roadshop for 6 years, as a Salesperson. I am color blind and I understand the CONCEPT of installs, but I don't have any application of installs, except assisting with taking off door panels, and dashes, etc. When Circuit City shut down, most of the installers I knew moved and/or gotten different jobs, so asking them for something, that I could pretty much get anyone to do wouldn't seem right. When I worked there, I allways had DVD/Navigation systems in all my cars, and they were always wired up to play music videos by the installers. Help?

  3. I guess this could be considered more of a general electrical question but since it applies to my head unit, I decided to post here....I hope I posted in the right place and my apologies if not. I have a Clarion VX709, 7" Touchscreen DVD head unit. In order to play DVD videos, the wire is supposed to be connected to the e-brake ground and only show video while the e-brake is applied. My passenger frequently watches movies while driving, so connecting to the e-brake is not possible for me. On my old 4" DVD HU, I simply grounded the wire and left it, allowing me to always watch video. This unit however, is different. In order to see video on the screen, the ground MUST be made AFTER the video has started playback, making it so a constant ground is no good. I have been waiting until the audio on the movie starts, then twisting the e-brake cable together with a grounded wire. This does the job, but it is a pain twisting the wire every time I turn it on and looks horrible having two bare wires hanging. My question is (and I hope it isn't a stupid one, lol), can I wire the e-brake cable through a 12v toggle switch to a ground, and just flip the switch to make the connection? Or do toggle switches only work for positive currents? I have Googled every search term I can think of and nothing has answered my question, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
