    Default Problem with my new stereo

    I just recently bought an Eonon touch screen stereo for my car and I'm having problems with it. The install went great, but now I can't get the DVD part of it to work. Whenever I place a DVD in it I receive a message that you can't play DVDs while you are driving. The worst part is, I'm sitting still in my driveway. Has anyone ever heard of any problems like this before?

    Have you tried putting your emergency brake on, I think sometimes they wire the radio into that so you can't drive with the dvd player on.

    I haven't tried that yet, ATS. Now you have me thinking, maybe it does have something to do with the breaking system. There is a possibility that I don't have it grounded right. Maybe there is a wire that I am hooking up wrong.

    From memory it is usually wired into the handbrake sensor, as a ground anyway so you can probably just de-pin and ground manually if you want all-the-time access. I say from memory because I haven't played with one in years and I could be thinking of something else.
    I’m a hypocrite and if I weren’t I’d be a success story.

    Simply Ground the brown brake wire on the harness that reads "Parking brake"
