You just need to hook up the foot brake wire (yellow and black) and hook up the parking brake wire (yellow and blue (looks green) ) set the parking brake then press and release the foot brake and your dvd picture will play

yellow goes to a 12 volt power source that never goes off no matter what position you have the key in. Black wire is ground and that can be tied into the frame of the car or another ground wire, you can find out what all wires do by using a test light. Clip one end to a clean ground and pone a wire, if it's +12 volt, it'll light up. Turn the key to find out what the wire is and once you find one that stays on no matter what, you have found the 12 volt batter wire that yellow goes to and if you can't find one there, you're going to have to run a small wire from the battery to the radio ( the radio should have an inline fuse, if not, put one on it if you have to wire it to the battery directly). To fine a ground wire you must first find a 12 volt+ wire, clip one end to the + wire and start poking other wires to find a ground wire. (you only need to know this for older care that nobody makes a wiring kit for.) Some places sell plugs that convert factory wire harnesses to after market configuration and that all you'd do is color match the wires. I hope this helps!
Pink wire is generally the parking brake safety. If you dont want the dvd player to play video while in drive wire it to the ground on your parking brake sensor wire. If you do want it to play video while your driving, wire it directly back to the ground wire on your stereo.
OK it should have say a 100 OHM resistor, and it should either go to PLUS +, OR - Negative, This isn't a Voltage line, it senses a Logic Level, either High, + Volts, or Low - Volts (Gnd). You simply have to find out which one it is, and secure in that position.It will then go always. Others sense A light bulb resistance, so thats what to use in that case. But either way a resistor is involved.
Take the Park Wire, via a 100 - 1000 ohm resistor, to stop any potential damage if wrongly connected, AND this lead is taken, either to + 12 volts DC, always ON... or - 12V DC or Earth. Some also work through the Stop Lights Bulb resistance... But I am sure you get the idea.
Ok, so I called Crutchfield, where I had purchased the unit, and the guy there said this is a common thing. Believe it or not, it IS the wiring. The guy said the blue wire on the harness needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Kenwood unit. Which is weird, since it's usually color-coded. He said the blue wire is a 12-volt amp wire, which works with the tuner, but when you take it off tuner, it kills the 12 volts and so you get no sound.
I haven't fixed it yet to be sure it works, but I thought I'd post this anyway, in case someone else is waiting on this. I'll post again if it doesn't work. :0)
