    Default parking brake wire

    Hi all, just got a pioneer avh-2400bt and was wondering if someone could tell me whats the easiest way of connecting the parking brake wire. Instructions say it needs to go to the power side of the parking brake switch, unsure as to where this is located and how to get to it. Had heard some reports about just grounding it??

    Parking brake wires are normally earthed.

    All screens that I have ever fitted that need a parking wire connected I have connected to earth so it works all the time.


    EDIT:

    Just looked and connect it to any earth. Probably the esiest place would be at the stereo plug itself or if your not sure to the brown wire on the cigarette lighter socket.
