ByPassing Parking Brake??

Hi,

I just purchased the Sony XAV-7W 7" Widescreen In-Dash

head unit. I was wondering if I could "bypass" using the Parking

Brake connector ?? I want to be able to have the LCD open while

driving, along with the ability to drive with the DvD player running

into the LCD while the monitor is open. How would I go about

doing this??

(could I simply use the BLUE "on/off" wire to send an "on" signal to my Green "parking brake" wire?)

Connect the parking brake wire to the ground wire. Simple as that.

I connected it to the harness, but ground is ground.
