Indash Dvd Bypass Play While Driving

Discussion in 'Mustang Sound & Shine All' started by spdsht, Jul 5, 2013.

  1. does anyone know how to make it so an in dash dvd player will play movies or mp4's while driving
  2. Theres a wire thats marked something along the lines of brake, or safety, something that the instructions state to connect to your emergency brake....just ground that wire and it should work fine, depending on the radio, do a google search for that specific model and it should tell you...

    Drive and view at your own risk...

  3. when you say just ground that wire, can I ground it to the stock stereos ground wire?... or do I need to ground it to a piece of metal somewhere in side the dash?
  4. any ground will work.
  5. so like if I twist the black ground wire + the brake wire from the head unit wireing harness and connect those to conjoined wires to the black ground for the aftermarket wire harness it will allow me to play the dvds while driving?.. or mp4's really just want the music videos to the music playing
  6. Yes...that will work, but as I said, some head units that have gyros in them and can tell when you're moving, which in that case you have to have a code to bypass it...

  7. Mine requires you to set, release, then set and leave the parking brake on. Amazon sells an override that you wire into the head unit parking brake lead, amp kick on, and ground. It's model specific if you need to go that route. One size doesn't fit all as they say.

  8. many will allow you to perform that grounding bypass. Mine worked like that until I did an upgrade to the gps maps, there was a formware update included that reversed it :(
  9. If that dont work u can also wire it to a 3 prong toggle switch
  10. I had one in my 05 Magnum, simple ground and done. Then I had a 300 srt, with that one I had to buy a relay. The relay basically told the DVD player the brake was on in order to let it play. Don't worry it doesn't keep the "ebrake" light on. It simply tricks the DVD player, that's all. It was a 3 prong Bosch relay. $5.00 bucks I think it was. Here's a link for my unit, yours may be different but this will work the same.

  11. I'll repeat that this simple "trick" worked fine for me too. That is until I updated the gps files, which also updated the firmware, which rendered this trick useless!
  12. I am looking for information in installing a in-dash DVD player I have 2015 GT 50th anniversary package. I can’t find anything or I am not looking in the right places, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
