the audio on dvd plays but no video
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 8 years ago

Do you have the parking brake wire interfaced?

 

Also, could you please repost the entire model number of the Kenwood unit?

i bought the stereo used. which wire is the parking brake and what do you mean interfaced. kenwood excelon 25th anniversarry xxv-05v
Electronics Technician: Aric, Technician replied 8 years ago

The Pink wire is the P-brake wire, and it needs to be connected to the Parking Brake, in order for the DVD to play, the parking brake must be engaged. This is a safety feature to ensure that no one drives while watching TV. However, there is a module designed to bypass this, so that "passengers" can watch the DVD while you're driving. This Universal trigger module by PAC can interface the Pbrake wire on the Kenwood unit and allow you to view the DVD.
