hi ive just signed up

my problem is i bought a dvd multichanger for the car as the one in it already broke down so i gets this new one delivered and the wires im stuck on are these

there is a red - switch live -sorted

there is a yellow-memory wire-sorted

there is a black-earth-sorted

there is a brown and black which says signal ground so ive put this to a ground of the car

theres a green that says parking brake-do i wire this to a perm live or a earth to keep the player working all the time even when i driving as i recal if i wire it to the handbrake it will only work if the handbrale is on (i dont want that lol)

and the one thats really causing me to scratch my head its a blue and white wire with standby out on the tag where do i wire this to is it a switch like on a car amplifier that turns the amp on when its wired to the switch wire on the back of a car stereo the dvd multichanger is getting put in my bmw m3 e46 convertible it has the sat nav tv up front somene has added a mod cause i can watch tv whilst driving and it has alpine headrest screens i dont want to start pulling the tv out the dash so im hoping this standby out just goes to either a perm live or switch live in the boot so i can run it of wiring to the changer

thanks all im hoping someone knows the few wires i dont and can help me also i dont know the make of the new dvd changer theres nothing on it

i have got a alpine dvd changer in the repair shop at the minute they said the lazer had gone due to it selecting discs then returning them so they put a new lazer in and it was doing the same any ideas as to what it could be again thank you

Your best bet is to try figuring out who made the unit & get an owners manual.

While I'm not sure on your unit, based on your description, it sounds like you have a system similiar to what Alpine has.

The 2 extra wires are designed to be hooked up to 12V & brake light line & need to see the connections in sequence as a safety feature and will not operate by simply going to 12 or ground.As soon as you restart the car the system will know and you won't be able to watch video...while anything can be bypassed, it is definitely not safe or a wise choice. Again, can not be sure if this in fact what you have?

On your second question, there may be other problems such as spindle motor or drive circuitry needing further diagnosis.
