Obviously, a screen playing a dvd within view of the driver poses a real safety risk, so the manufacturers apply certain safeguards, in this case forcing you to wire your TV to the parking break in order to view the screen. When wired to the parking break, this requires you to be stationary and have the parking brake engaged in order to view the television. When wiring the dvd unit, you can bypass this safety feature on some models, while others require you to buy additional parts to accomplish this.
Most newer models have switched to a system that senses motion and won't turn on regardless of how you wire it. However, some are still possible to bypass the old-fashioned way. Find the ground wire volt. In most cars, it is black.
For your specific car, you can consult a reference chart see Resources. Strip the ends off of the wire that is supposed to be connected to the parking brake, the ground for the dvd player and the ground wire from the car.

2014 – 2018 GM Factory DVD – Blu-ray System Upgrade
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. Works perfectly in my Denali with RSE. Was easy to install.
Not buggy like the GM Lockpick. The instructions included made the install very simple and easy.Is the disabling based on software?
In cars the DVD Video on the front screen isn't allowed to play when the car is in motion. The bypass in most cars is to just ground the parking wire to the unit. In this case I assume there isn't a parking wire and it is all software based? Anyone have any idea? WOT I know you don't recommend doing this, but it would be nice to know lol. Anyone even begun to look at a hack for this? I don't need it for myself but it would be nice for the kids Thanks, P. WOP I know you don't recommend doing this, but it would be nice to know lol.
Thanks, PIt's all network and software driven. I've not heard of a hack, but won't dispute that it's "possible". Sorry WOT. Well if it is software driven on all GM car's then that is great news. I added a hacked box to my tahoe to allow navigation input and DVD playback while in motion.
I was always under the assumption it was grounding parking break wire to allow playback. If it is software based and they have done it on other models then the hack should be out at some point. Good news. Thanks again. Something I received today from a company called Solid Signal.
