When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

check on the main wiring harness you wil see a black box on the yellow wire. open up the cover. there is a 10 amp mini fuse inside. if it is blown replace the fuse. also check your main radio and accesssory fuses in your fuse box. if no fuses are blown check all wiring connections.

You can buy the remote here:
Dual remote
The code however, will have to come from Dual, and you will probably need some proof of legal ownership since this is a security feature to prevent thieves from benefiting from their crime.

It allows you to watch DVD movie playback on the screen when the parking brake is engaged. You hook it to the parking brake wire in your vehicle.

Put in the same number 3 times (example 1111) until it locks and then push in the mute bottom and hold it and while you hold the mute button with your other finger push in the volume control (power button) and hold both of them until a new screen comes up and then put in 122164 and hit OK and that should work.

Thank you for your e-mail. Put in the same number 3 times (example 1111) until it locks and then push in the mute bottom and hold it and while you hold the mute button with your other finger push in the volume control (power button) and hold both of them until a new screen comes up and then put in 122164 and hit OK and that should work.





let me break it down you do not need the remote...

first put the same number in (e.g 1111 enter this number 3 times) second after the device locks on the radio hold the mute button while holding that press in the volume nob (e.g power button) hold them both till another screen comes up and enter 122164 and press ok and your all done... this solution works on all dual indash dvd players
