You need it? Really?

Lockpick CHR550. I think. I know it's a Lockpick, and I think it's CHR550. Google Chrysler lockpick.

You can get a lockpick which is expensive but it is the only fix at this point other then an aftermarket head unit. One of the reason I didn't get the premium system. Even the Amp is programmed to have limits. Takes a lot just to get the system to work the way you want it. While an aftermarket unit is usually better and doesn't have this restrictions. And really not much different in price in the long run.

True. My only concern is that aftermarket gear in general is a theft magnet. Thieves seem to be less impressed with factory units. Maybe they know their limited too!

I put a Pioneer dvd player in my JKU & added a relay that bypasses the brake lead (tricks the radio into thinking that the brake is on). Whenever our daughter rides in the Jeep, she asks to watch the Bugs Bunny cartoons that I've got on a flash drive & let me tell you, it's HARD not to look over at that d@mned screen.

That being said, with most systems you can run the video to a separate screen w/o bothering with the brake bypass. Perhaps that's possible with the stock unit as well?

I had an aftermarket unit and did the same trick, grounded the wire that normally attaches to the parking brake so "my passengers" could watch DVDs while driving. Very first time I tried it I almost drove off the rode 4 times. Every few seconds I'd find myself looking at that stupid screen and not the road! LOL

I hear ya. So maybe I shouldnt do it. Dont wanna wreck my sweet jeep ;)

You bypass that lockout and get in a wreck even if you weren't watching the video then you're in a world of hurt with your insurance company and possibly the police when they arrive and a video is still playing or if they investigate. Even if it had nothing to do with the wreck. Not a good idea.

Good point. With every car wreck I've seen the police always send out the entire CSI team and spend unlimited man hours disassembling, reassembling and testing every aspect of the vehicles involved until they figure out exactly what might have contributed to the crash.

If it's a fatality or a serious wreck you bet they investigate. I wasn't referring to a fender bender :) Even then some times kids can inadvertently spill the beans about things like that. I'm just saying watch out it's not advisable.

I'm pretty sure you have to have the e-brake pulled as well.
