Parking Brake Bypass
I just installed a Pioneer AVH-P2400BT in my car (2006, base, no JBL) and it comes with a DVD player which will not play unless the parking brake is applied. Not that I'll be watching DVDs in the car while driving to work, but I read somewhere that a bypass is possible to hook up.
What I have learned so far is that I need a 5 pin relay and some wire and attach it to the green parking brake wire and something else. Problem is no one mentioned what kind of wire to be used which is what I would like to know. I have extra wires in the harness which are not being used (mute, power antenna, etc) but I would rather not cut them (for no good reason).
If anyone could help that would be great.
