    Stuck in my garage, looking for a quick fix. Trying to install Clarion NX409, just wanted to know if anyone can provide advice on the parking brake lead or how to "trick" it out so DVD can play anytime. Something on Youtube shows using a relay and power, just want to get it set without shorting the HU.

    Ideas?

    THX!!

    Found a fix, use the power antenna lead to (-ground) to trigger the parking brake, works perfect. To operate you must toggle between the radio mode and then to DVD.

    ... you could put a normally closed momentary push button in line with the wire and ground and mount it in your change tray.
