Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

Why would the head light switch keep burning out and smoking when i put a new one in on my 95 chevy suburban?

Check the electrical connector. If it is part melted, the wires may be shorting. Splice in a new connector.
If not it, you may need a voltmeter to check voltages of wires into switch.

Test it. Try all the sequence below until it match all three wires. Don't worry, it won't spark if the wire will not match the right wire.

I need to know what color are the speaker cables of a chevy impala 2003. Because I put a new stereo and cut the wires. thank you very much for your help I appreciate it

There are 4 different types of radios for that year. You will have to check which style you have by the RPO code for that vehicle. In the glove box, or the center console or in the trunk (on the panel that covers the spare tire) there should be a placard with all the RPO codes for your vehicle. 3 of the radios, all the speaker wires are the same. It will be codes WX7, U62 or UW6. If you have any of these the wires are:

L/F - Gray (-) Tan (+), R/F - Dk Grn (-) Lt Grn (+), L/R - Yel (-) Brn (+), R/R - Lt Blu (-) Dk Blu (+)

If you have RPO code UQ3 the wires are:

L/F Tweeter - Yel (-) Blk (+), R/F Tweeter - Ppl (-) Lt Grn (+)
L/F - Lt Grn/Blk (-) Dk Blu (+) R/F - Lt Blu/Blk (-) Dk Grn/Wht (+)
L/R - Wht (-) Tan (+) R/R - Red (-) Tan (+)

Why would a 2003 Chevy Impala's speakers not work? The radio and CD player work, but I get no sound what so ever. The car was bought used in 2009 and the radio has never worked. I was told that something...

This may be a anti-theft issue. If it is and you want it fixed, the Chevy Dealter is probably the best place to have this work done, IF it can be done at all. My Chevy radio instructions tell me that if there is a genuine power loss to the radio when the anti theft system is activated (like someone breaking into the car and stealing it, cutting the wires) that the radio will not work again with out GM intervention.
