AVIC N-2 bypass...

Recommended Posts

You have to pull up the silver sticker on the head unit and either solder between the two points or use a circuit tracing pen to connect the two. Also ground the parking brake wire

[quote name="chiefsalami"]I see instructions here for an N3, but how is it done for an N2? Will just grounding the parking brake work, or does this system use the vehicle speed sense as well? Can the trick that is used for the Z1 (so-called flasher mod) be used on the N1, N2, or N3?[/quote]

Should I also disconnect the VSS wire? Thanks

Just tap into another ground wire, like the black one in the harness

[quote name="executioner"]When you say ground the parking brake wire do you mean just dont attach it to the parking brake switch but instead bolt it to a metal object?[/quote]

I'm just a newbie here but I can tell you that you should look at the two points that are under that silver sticker that's on the bottom of the dash unit with some magnification. When I first tried to mod mine, one of the points shorted to the side foil and the thing died. Only the flip screen worked. I looked at the pc board with a 30x magnifier and saw the problem and then re-soldered and now it's fine. Don't forget to remove the light green wire from the brake switch and put to ground by itself.

Still a novice...old school, tv-tech

Hello, newbie here. I am wanting to know if my CNDV-40MT is the latest map info I can use on my N1 with the ability to still watch / nav on the fly? Thanks for the help. Greg

do you have to put the light green wire by itself or can you put it in with another ground?

good look on the circuit writer pen from Fry's, it was only 12.99, and I only used a very, very small dollop, and will never use it again, if anyone wants to buy it for cheaper its up for sale...just pm me for info, anyways thanks all for the help with this and all the great tips....KT

As long as the wire is off the brake switch, ground is ground. Sorry for the long delay. Never knew there was a question for me.
