    I am currently installing a double din and need to find the steering wheel control wires and the reverse wire and speed wire. Also how do I override the DVD watching wire that is supposed to go on the parking break? Thanks guys, I have searched for answers but can't seem to find anything helpful.

    Did you buy the pioneer avic-x920bt? If so i just did the dvd/nav bypass two days ago and it works great. All you do is take the mute wire from the AV harness and the parking break wire and ground it along with the ground wire from the other harness. Look at this website they helped me a lot along with youtube.... www.avic411.com.

    Goodluck

    Also i recomend doing it the way the guy in the vid above did.... cutting it out seemed to be the easiest way over sticking a staple in or pulling the back tab off.

    I cut the pin out, it was still a PITA. did you hook up the speed and reverse wires? I have read they are unnecessary and actually slow the unit down.

    I hooked up the speed wire just so i could use it for GPS reasons but as far as the reverse... no i was told you onl really need that if you install a back up camera so that your screen will automatically go to your camera when the car is put into reverse.
