    Help install Pioneer avh-P2300 dvd player green wire

    hey i thought you hook up the dvd parking brake wires to negative? In the instructions it says power supply?? I dont want to fry the unit so asking radio gurus.

    I think this wire is for safety purposes... You are not supposed to play dvd's, or the navagation system while driving so certain functions will only be available with the parking brake applied. If it was me installing it personally... I would connect that wire to a ignition + wire to have full function of the unit at all times.

    It says to hook it up to the power side of the parking brake wire so you are fine

    Well I hooked it up to a power wire and still nothing. So I finally tested it out and it seems it needs to cycle through a power off power to work. So hooked it up to the ebrake and it works. If I turn the car on with the brake on I need to let it down the pull it back up and it will work.

    Re: Help install Pioneer avh-P2300 dvd player green wire

    I installed one yesterday in a 2005 f150. We just wired it to a switch and the other side of the switch went to a ground. You can't give that wire a constant ground or you won't be able to watch movies. So eevery time he turns his truck on he has to turn the switch completing the "ground" circuit. If he left it that way the next time he turns the truck on he will have to operate the switch like this (on, off, on) basically opening the circuit then closing it again. If you have any questions pm me and maybe I can explain it better.
