    Default Dual 7" Motorized screen bypass

    hey guys i just bought the dual 7" motorized touchscreen model #XDVD8183 and i'm wanting to the know if there is a way to bypass the safety switch? i've searched google a few times and found one way but i'd rather trust someone on here that has experience than just someone i found on a google search. so if anyone has used this model or has experience with this PLEASE let me know before i start to install this.

    I'm in the process right now of by passing my pioneer 7'' touchscreen. I just ordered a wiring kit that does it. I tried like 4 different ways to run wires according to what people said online and none of those suggestions worked. You might try looking up the PAC tr7. See if they make that for your model.

    The Dual is a much cheaper model and electronics then the Pioneer I think you just have to Ground A safety wire or brake wire..

    Try this...it worked for me...

    STEP ONE. Ground the E-Brake wire.
    STEP TWO.

    ** Insert a DVD
    ** Let it play until you hear sound
    ** Press STOP twice on remote
    ** Enter 26604
    ** Press ENTER

    You have to wire up a switch to the brake wire and the other to ground. It will not work if you just ground it. Some in dashes do work off just a ground but not dual. It has to sense you grounding the wire. So youll have to switch it on and off anytime you want to watch video. This is a fact, ive put in alot of duals unfortunetly.
