in dash DVD player hookup question...

Pink wire to emergency brake (-)
Keeps you from viewing movies when driving, as the e-brake has to be on to view screen.
It says to pop in the dvd, and with the e-brake on, and then release the e-brake for 3 to 5 seconds and reapply the e-brake....
I KNOW there is a bypass for this........
Anyone wanna share with me?

The wire just sees current, so you should just need to feed it an ignition-switched current of the proper voltage. If it is 12 volts, then just splice into the remote turn on lead. You could even wire up a switch to this wire to "apply, insert, release 3-5 seconds, then reapply".

I thought it may have been right to ground, but its back in the box and back to the store!
It kept shutting off....

Thanks for the help

try hooking it to the e-brake (+) and see if that works. The downside is your e-brake light might always be on, but it should complete the circuit, whereas connecting it to the e-brake (-) gets its current after the break in the circuit. Alternatively, splice into the e-brake (+) and e-brake (-) and connect them with a switch. Then splice into the (-) wire of the switch. You'd basically be creating a parallel circuit, controlled by the switch. The switch would turn on the e-brake light, but its a small sacrifice.
