NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dont connect that to the parking brake!

instead connect it to a permanent ground!!! otherwise you wont be able to use DVD while the car is moving or another AV source if you decide to connect one, basically this overides that function.

it's iilegal to watch DVD on the move and a Warning sign will come up if you are moving and try to watch DVD or TV on the Clarion while on the move so instead of them trying to prevent this by using the speed pulse they did this with that parking brake, this means it can be overridden as they know many people wouldnt buy it if it couldnt be!

I have clarion and mine is parking brake is connected to permanent ground, SteveNL has Clarion and this is the way he has wired it also - save yourself hassle and do it that way.

PS... THIS IS ENTIRLEY AT YOUR OWN RISK if you prang your car while watching a video source dont blame me or clarion - ok that was my disclaimer :p
