Hooking stereo to parking brake

I am trying to hook my stereo to my parking brake. I am not sure if I am hooking it up right. I am hooking the stereo to the blue cable on the brake switch. Is this the right cable? If not where would the correct one be located. I have a 2003 dodge durango. Please Help. Rebecca

Don't even bother hooking it up to the e-brake. You can bypass the e-brake. Take the peach-colored wire and ground it to metal inside the dash. Put a toggle switch inline on the wire and mount it somewhere you can reach it. When you get the blue screen when starting a movie, open the switch for 3-5 seconds, then close it again to reapply the ground. Your movie will start up, and you can then drive away with it playing. The bonus is that you can play a DVD while driving, and you also don't have to worry about tapping into the wrong wire and potentially damaging the head unit.

What color wire do i hook the pink wire to


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.

Trying to find the parking brake


YOU DONT NEED TO HOOK THE PINK WIRE UP JUST PUT IN A DVD AND TYPE IN 543210. THIS IS A BYPASS CODE SO YOU CAN PLAY DVD WITHOUT HOOKING UP THE PINK WIRE. YOU MUST HOLD DOWN THE 0 FOR 4 SECONDS WHEN PUTTING IN THE CODE.
