    Most units just need to have it grounded. I grounded mine to the radio harness ground. Some require a switch. (basically have the ground activated after the stereo is powered. Not simutaneously.

    That's all the parking brake does is connect it to ground. So either you had a bad ground or there is another required input like a Vehicle Speed Sensor wire.

    okay will do, i read in some other forum that a relay would work and ground it in two locations, the remote wire and the parking brake.

    All I did with the pioneer DVD in the 4 runner was a temp fix till i got a toggle switch was ground a wire to the truck and twist the two wires together. Get in truck, undo wires, put back together and twist, hit ok on screen BAM! video on the road. Still need to get that wired right. I was out of town when I put it in and just ghetto'd it for right now.
