The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.
