  1. ************************************************************************************************************************* Update 12/18/12: After taking the steps below everything is good to go. The Micro Bypass works as advertised and the seller was great to work with. I've reviewed the product on Amazon and added some installation notes. ************************************************************************************************************************* Edit/Update 12/17/12: The seller of the micro bypass has been very responsive and is working with me on some troubleshooting. This may be something I did (or did not do) correctly. My interpretation of the instructions does not match his intent. I think they were written for a new install whereas I'm retrofitting. The error is on the HU light green parking brake wire. That wire should be disconnected from the parking brake and connected to the MB green wire and nothing else. I patched the MB green wire into the light green HU wire and left it attached to the PB. This may have damaged the MB... I also made the connections using those snap on plastic T connections, which he said are not reliable. So, next steps are to re-connect the wires by directly wrapping them together, recheck the MB ground and HU ground are together and properly grounded then see what happens. If it doesn't work then its likely the MB is damaged. I'm NOT looking forward to disassembling the car again and crawling back up under the dash... I'll let everyone know what happens. ************************************************************************************************************************* I've searched these forums and the Internet for information on a parking bypass solution for my Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS. There is sparse info for this particular model and some conflicting opinions on what does/does not work. I installed a Micro Bypass that is marketed specifically for this unit: http://www.amazon.com/AVH-X1500DVD-AVH-X2500BT-AVH-X3500BHS-AVH-X4500BT-AVH-X5500BHS/dp/B00A9AQPUU/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1354688437&sr=1-1&keywords=Avh-x5500+bypass I've seen where this solution has worked for other but it isn't working for me. Connected black to ground, blue to blue/white from radio (spliced into this wire, which goes to my power antenna) and green to light green brake wire. No video when brake is off AND now no video when brake engaged (video worked with brake on before installing bypass). Contacted seller and he said to cut light green wire by the brake switch (not in the original instructions), so I did but there is no change. Any thoughts on this? Other solutions I've seen are a to use a relay, a relay with a PAC 7 trigger module or a simple 2 way automotive 12v toggle switch... It's very difficult to access the wires behind the radio and I don't really want to just start trying random solutions. When my parking brake engages it depresses a button (switch). The light green wire from the radio is spliced into the wire for ths switch. That seems to be the only connection between the radio and PB. In addition to any helpful thoughts on a bypass for this model can someone explain how that one light green wire fools the radio and why it's so hard to duplicate? My understanding of auto electronics is somewhat limited... Sorry this is so long but I wanted to be thorough. Thank you!
