To be honest with you, it's a very easy fix. If you read the install manual it shows the parking brake needs a negative (-) to function. In theory you hook this to the parking brake and when it's applied it will sent a negative to the attached wire, thus activating the playback. Just attach this wire to the negative ground on the system or wire a switch and install it in dash. With 1 wire going to the parking brake wire on the cd and the other going to the ground so you can de-activate it when you wish.
I just installed the vm8013hd and I simply grounded the pink parking brake wire to the chassis prior to connecting the power to the unit and it works just fine. No bypass box, switch, codes, etc. Good luck
most of the times this is solved by putting together the pink wire with the black ground wire and then to your chassis. some newer models require this to be done three times (stepping on the brakes three times before you get a signal). you can use a switch between this connection and turning it on and off three times to get the signal. you will have to repeat this everytime you turn off the unit.
Please reply with a model # and I can help you out.
Usually pink is reserved for Parking Brake Bypass wire.
Is this a DVD player? or Standalone CD?
Solid Blue is amplifier turn-on wire.
(sometimes power antenna wire on cheaper 1-wire brands)
But again, reply with the radio model # and I can help further.
