Are they "burned" DVDs? The brake override will only allow video to come through the screen it won't make the unit not read them.

locate the video wire and connect it with the ground wire.

if your son put in a new code, then the default code is automatically replaced with the new one, my only choice to you is to contact the company at dualav.com, they have a 1-800 number, they can help you solve that problem. i have the same deck, and went through the same thing, and i had to contact the manufacturer.

you need a 2 way toggle switch, then solder ground to one side, and find brake wire from radio harness and solder that to the other side of toggle switch, then flip the switch to on and your ready to watch and drive, disconnected harness from radio first

Hi, the Golf cart runs on a battery voltage / power supply greater than 12 volts???. If this is the case, your supply'g too much voltage to your DVD player. The DVD runs on a circuit that is 12 volts? And you Golf cart batteries, which I assume are in parallel connection, are supplying to much voltage to the DVD, causing the DVD to manfuction or burn up.
if the DVD is manufactured to run on a battery voltage of 12 volts...give or take a volt, then you will have to step down or link the unit to a 12 volt circuit. You can find a 12 volt circuit (if possible on your cart) with a volt meter and attach the power supply wires to it. I would nt be surprised if the DVD is damaged, but it is worth a shot at this pint in the game.

it may need to be switched. i've got a pioneer in dash dvd player in my truck and instead of hooking the wire to my e-brake, i ran it to a switch and ran another wire from the switch to ground. because my unit requires a ground e-brake signal. be sure on yours that if it requires a ground signal to run it to ground, and if it's asking for a 12v signal to run it to 12v. so basically you keep the switch off, until it asks you to apply, release and apply the e-brake at which point you turn the switch on, off and back on. that's it..

Check to make sure you are connecting Power (+) to positive (red) and ground (-) negative (black).

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On the Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

either you have to just hook the pink wire to a switch, and then another wire off the other switch's pole to a ground, when you turn the switch on, it grounds and makes a connection, when you turn it off, it ungrounds, just like a light switch disconnects power when down, and connects when up.
Or find a code to bypass it .
Check this link to have an idea.

However in their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking is to put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then to put it back on, and the movie will start.
Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in the manner of the e-brake cycle.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com
