How do you hook up the wire to make the dvd to play

remember it is illegal and dangerous to drive with video on in front seat.
Not sure what model, but most likely this will work. Radio Shack2_bing.gif will have parts.

If its for an Alpine there are 2 switches needed.
1. A toggle to simulate e brake
2. A momentary (push button-PB)simulate the regular brake.

Both switches should go to ground, if I recall. If not put 12 volts on PB switch.
Procedure is as follow press regular brake(PB) and hold. Turn toggle on off and on again, release PB

Let me know if you have more questions

this wire is designed to be grounded when oparking brake is on this is so you cannot watch dvd while driving as that is illegal. Some people wire this up on a toggle switch to a ground so they can flip the switch and make it work whenever they want. I cannot tell you to just wire this to a ground as that would be illegal!!!!!! ;) supposed to wire it to the switch on park brake this wire grounds when brake is on

How To Bypass The Brake Switch To Watch Videos While Driving?

Clarify please-does the screen show "Audio Only" when a DVD is inserted? If so, this is because the parking brake lead is not set up to work. Normally, the green lead connects to the parking brake negative on the car. This means you don't get video unless the parking brake is set. To bypass this, you need to wire the green parking brake lead to one terminal on a toggle switch, then you run a wire from the radio ground lead to the other terminal. toggle the switch up and down and you should have video. You can get a pretty small toggle switch and mount it in a concealed place.
This is by no means advocating watching video while driving!!!!
