Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

well no the new pioneer units require the lt green wire to be grounded thru a switch...if it see ground when the unit is powered it need to have the ground removed then re applied for it to work...

Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

that makes no sense...

the switch is bolted to ground and the wire comes off it is ground after the switch...on all cars...

Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

If the 5700 is like that, then all you really need to do is install a switch between the straight ground and the green wire... Simply toggle that after the car is turned on..

And for those saying the same thing on the N2, nope, not only does it require the brake ground to be activated, the internal gyro system detects motion and will kill the video. (One of the reasons I like my AVH-6500DVD w/ AVIC88 setup...

Yes, you can reroute the output to the rear cam or the aux vid input... That doesn't solve the issue of not being able to input to the nav system without pulling over... For that you need to solder a relay into the system. This has been covered numours times at www.the12volt.com

Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

idk in my n1 i just grounded teh green wire and it was fine.. havent heard of the switch thing like brian said but he does more isntalls than me seeing as i havent done installs in a while.. but the n2 bypass is a bitch.. and VOIDS ur warranty... and pioneer is wrong with their manual.. i know it says power side, but they really mean the side that switches.. cause almost every parking brake wire ive ever tested was a negative wire... so

Re: pioneer avh-p5700dvd

i had the same prob with getting my Pioneer to put video out on the front screen, but i fixed it a day or 2 later. All you have to do is ground the light green wire to a ground. Think of it like this, the positive side of the parking brake that it lists in the manual and the negative side are both just a ground, and when you put on your parking brake, it serves as a big switch to connect the wire letting the grounds connect.
