Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

How to bypass parking brake to watch videos on boss bv7940


***DISCLAIMER*** The parking break switch in your in-car video player is a safety feature that is required by law, bypassing or disabling this switch is NOT recommended by any means. The answer I am providing is for informational purposes, neither fixya or myself are responsible for any consequences of the use of the information herein.
there are two ways to do this, there are marketed products designed to do this that come with a few parts and an instructional dvd. Or you may purchase simply a toggle switch, and some wire, and do the following.
There is a wire connected from the back of the dvd player deck to the parking break indicator bulb or wire on the dashboard (the light that comes on when your parking break is on). This wire can be disconnected from the parking break lamp and attached to a toggle switch, and then to a power source (12v+). With most manufacturers there is a "code" to enable video. Generally it's something to the effect "turn the parking break on for 1 second, off for one second, and then back on, and leave it on". Whatever the code is for your unit, you may now do the same with your switch to activate video.

How do I bypass the parking brake switch in order for my video to play on a Sound Stream vir 7870nrb?


tie the park brake wire to ground permanently. This will bypass the safety feature. You can do it right at the unit., cut the wire short, and jumper it over to ground. Installers usually won't do this as it is a liability.

Bypass parking brake wire


Boss Audio is the easiest in-dash DVD on the market to bypass; all you do is ground the ebrake wire. I recently installed 12 Boss Audio in-dash BV-7300's and did this to all of the decks problem solved. By the way I did this because they were in the back of limousines where the driver couldn't ever even see one of them while he was driving. I don't think there will be a problem, try it.

Bypass didnt work


Connect the parking break wire to the chasis ground. This is a safety feature that is used so the driver will not view the movie. I have these units installed on our boats and just simply hook to ground.
I hope this helps!
