    Quick question on dvd player install

    I am currently in the process of installing a Panasonic CQ-VD6503U DVD player into a 1996 Nissan Maxima. The unit is completely operational, though I am curious to know if there is a way to override the feature that needs the car to be in park before watching a DVD. In the manual it states you need to run a cable to your parking break sensor and I was wondering if I could somehow skip this step so I can utilize the DVD player while the car is driving. Any help would be appreciated.

    Nevermind, the answer is to ground the side brake wire for anyone who wants to know.

    Re: Quick question on dvd player install

    I have the Pioneer 5700 DVD and am trying to build a relay to allow for the use of the DVD while the car is in motion. I have heard of the switch in-line with the parking brake and then grounding that line, but it seems like you have to flip the switch several times to make it work.

    Would a relay solve this problem? The Pioneer is from 2007 and was wondering if there was anyting new in these versus the earlier models.

    Thanks in advance for the help!
