    Default Handbrake bypass

    Hi.Just installed a new dvd headunit wired in and working.o\nly trouble is when trying to play a dvd i get the message stop car blah blah get sound but no picture..I grounded the brake wire to the black ground wire on the iso block so thought that would have bypassed the handbrake control.Any advice would be welcome....

    Is it registering a speed input from the road wheels?

    The normal HU takes a speed input to adjust the volume as the vehicle speed increases - just a thought, as how would it know you are moving?

    Is it OK when the car is stationary?

    As you are aware having the DVD playing while you are driving along is illegal so why would you want to do it?

    If you where to have an accident and they found that you had altered the player then you would be in big trouble. Leave it as it is and drive safely, please
