bypass parking brake sensor to watch dvd's while driving

Postby gwoods » Fri Nov 02, 2007 12:09 pm

Geez what a long topic title!

I just figured out that I can plug my ipod into the RCA ports in the center console and watch movies on the car~! But it only works with the parking brake on. The car isn't as fast with the parking brake on so ....

Is there a easy way to bypass this safety feature?

Its for my 2 year old son on trips I'll be keeping my eyes on the road LOL.

Thanks,

Jeff

I don't think you can override this as I've seen this same question several times on this thread... Do you have the nav or tech package? Can I watch movies without tech or nav package>?

AZ Ferrell,

Yes you can! Mine is a journey too without a NAV and I can watch movies on a portable DVD player or IPOD pluged into the AUX ports!

Thanks, man I may try that!

Bringing this post back from the dead!

SO has anyone used the KP Technologies bypass on their G?

I read the KP Tech forums and it looks like a few 07 + G's used it but I didn't see any pics of what is involved.

Guess I should just contact KP right?

Thanks,

Jeff

Do you have 3 RCA ports in your center console that you can plug your Ipod into?

This is the 07 + LCD screen in the center of the dash. I can plug my Ipod into the car and watch movies/music video's on it if the parking brake is on.

Basically, you remove the shift knob and the panel surrounding it. You remove the center dash piece the the radio buttons are on. You remove the screen. You remove the control unit behind everything.

Once the control unit is out you find the plug that has the main control wires in it. In this harness you can tap the switched 12vdc, the ground, and the reverse signal IF you have an OEM reverse camera. If you don't have the camera you don't need to hook that wire up.

Then, you take apart the navigation controller (a few screws, pretty easy) to expose the contacts on the connector. There will be two wires you need to soder to two of the contacts. You find the correct two contacts (I have pictures of this) and solder them.

If you want to connect the VSS bypass (allows programming while moving) you must find and cut the VSS wire (it is in the same harness). Wire the VSS signal through a relay (one side to pin 30, the other to pin 87A).

Put everything back together and test the system. You enable the VSS bypass by pressing and holding the OK for about 2 seconds.

Here is a shot of the board:

Here is one side of the connector, showing 1 connection:

Here is the other side of the connector, showing the other connection:

The pictures above are from an '07 G35 with navi. I'm not sure if it had the tech package, but I don't see why things would be any different.

I bought instructions from Ebay and did this myself. It works perfectly. I have a zune player and play video out to my screen. Everything in the car works as before but I can view video at any time. I mostly view my Zune screen on my dash while playing songs. I can also adjust my cars setting while I drive another bonus. They are not locked out.

My defeat does not include soldering to pin connector. I simply clipped two wires, grounding one I believe.

The soldering of wires is necesarry so that you can use the OEM "ENTER" button to trigger the bypass (instead of adding an extra switch to the car). It also allows the module to process the "OK" button each time the car starts.

Maybe this is true with Nav, Tech packages. I have the journey with Premium only. I access my MP3 players video, songs, radio by pushing the AUX button on my dash and selecting video out on my MP3. Everything works perfectly. I don't have an external switch.

Yes, it would only be true with navi.

Zozo - Are there instructions that would work for an 08 M45x with Navi? I'm a new member and new M45 owner. My e-mail address is [email protected]. Thanks very much. Dave

PS - I posted this request on another (much older) thread. Thanks.

The M35/45 is different from the G/EX. I'll have something for you so I send it in email. you can try it. Just keep it in your mind I never did it.

Good Luck.

And yest it would work for the Navi too.

There is a full instruction for the G and EX at the EX board Nico. It is a sticky. It should help you.

I just bought a 370Z and I think it has the same NAV A/V setup as the G35/37. Can somebody please email a bypass for the emergency brake so that my daughter can watch her favorite DVD's and not have to listen to me. Thanx in [email protected]

We just had a customer install a Navigation Interface module on an '09 Murano so I may be able to help you.

Check this thread: http://www.kptechnologies.com/...=1105

I've never worked on an '09 myself, so I can't confirm the wire colors, but I can say I do trust the source after the information he provided.

We don't have parking brake information so you'll have to probe for that with a volt meter.

Does anyone have access to the connectors themselves. It seems to me that one could avoid soldering on the board by using male/female jumper if you are simply removing the speed signal.

The reason you have to solder to the board is to use the OEM "Enter" button to toggle the bypass. This allows for a more OEM operation and eliminates the need to install any extra switches in the interior.

It also allows the module to process the "OK" screen each time the car starts up.

If you were able to find the connector it would probably double the total cost of the module + installation. Soldering on these boards is extremely easy for anyone who has ever used a soldering iron before since the solder joints are right at the connector. On older Nissans it is necessary to solder to actual points on the circuit board - a much more difficult task.
