Is there a way to DISABLE the factory DVD (in Park) restriction?
I have a '14 Rubicon on order and have been doing some research on the 430 Nav radio I ordered it with. I have seen it will only play DVD's when in PARK (not sure how it is wired with a 6spd manual as I will have).
I want my passengers to be able to watch movies on road trips, how do I make this work while driving

We always just cut the wire that was supposed to go to the parking brake an wired in a toggle switch an grounded it to something, the toggle switch being in case you get pulled over you can flip it an it won't work, "supposedly" you can get a ticket or it's illegal or something to watch a DVD while driving from the front cd/DVD player, how true that is I don't full know we just wired it that way just in case they wanted to check or whatnot
I know Iím not going to be very popular with you guys but enabling movies to play in the front is just plain dangerous for all involved. The potential for the driver to look over at it while driving is a real threat. You could end up with serious injuries or even fatalities from a head-on or rear ending a vehicle.
Install some headrest units instead. As far as the passenger goes, well they would be out of luck. Another option for everyone would be to get a few of those hand held cd players, probably a lot cheaper too.
Ok you can start throwing rocks now; Iíve got my helmet on.
