    wiring question ? updated with pics

    So i got the jensen dvd player for my b-day. i like it. the only question is that damned pink wire. i'm trying to by pass the parking brake, that way when i have my kids with me, they can watch too.. i wired it to the radio ground. and the dvd isn't working. did i wire it wrong? should i wire it to another ground? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i figured it out. basically, there's a brake sequence that has to be followed to get the thing to come on. basically, you turn the car on, drop the "brake", then pull it up again. so i wired a ground to a toggle switch, and wired the pink wire to the other end of the toggle. so i can get that 1 sec "relay" that the dvd player needs for the sequence. i'll post pics later. i know everyone flames the jensen radio. but the dvd player is pretty sweet. it brought my jl's to life. much better than the monsoon hu. and i'm still using the monsoon amp.

    this is the switch i had to put in to "trick" the dvd player into thinking that the parking brake was on.
