Noo, your local shop will most likely not do it for you. As you said, its illegal, so by law they are not permitted to do it. I work at circuit city and we get guys wanting us to install them all the time without the parking break sensor on and we just say no... its too much of a liability.

If you know an installer personally, then maybe, or if you pay extra cash on the side to the installer, maybe. But most likely you will just get turned down.

Go to a local audio/video shop, not a major chain and just pay cash, you just won't get a receipt. It's just like buying the darker tint.

When you install a DVD player in your car, it has a device that makes it not be able to turn on while the car is moving, but once you put it in park, it Will turn on and you can watch movies. The OP is asking how to re-wire the device that makes it not be able to play DVD's while the car is moving.

in many cases there are engineering menus on the dvd unit that can be brought up with special key sequences in which you can enable it to bypass the parking brake sensor with no wiring.

what model dvd player is it?

If the DVD player is using the parking brake, you can activate said parking brake by one notch. Usually enough to trip the switch, not enough to actually engage something.


Better be to allow your passengers to watch it tho, you'd be an idiot if you tried to watch it while driving.
