Question about Televison & Video
All you need to do is go to radio shack and buy yourself a 12 volt or above momentary push button/switch (about $3) If the button swith/button comes with wires then just connect one end to the emergency brake wire from the radio and then connect the other wire from the switch to a ground to your car. You can use the same ground connection that you used for the radio and it will be fine. make sure you wrap up the wires to prevent shorts.
Also make sure that the switch that you buy can be mounted because you will need to use it every time you want to use the dvd.( you might need to drill a small hole for the switch depending on what you buy)Make sure you have enough wire so you can mount it where you can easily use it like under your steering wheel.
When you are ready to use the dvd put the dvd in the player and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just press the switch/button for one second and release it. The screen takes about 6 second to display the video. If it does not work then try again but this time try to push the button/switch twice. In my truck I only have to do it once and it works fine but you get the idea.
