Unfortunately it's not that simple : the drive lock is done thru an electronic command - the player gets this information from the ECM, not just a simple Park wire.
To make it work the entire wiring of the player must be modified - a fiddly job that must be left to a pro shop (if you can find one that is willing to do it - illegal and severely punishable). Unless of course you want to do it yourself and risk frying the entire electronics of the car.

HOOK IT TO THE GROUND WIRE (BLACK)

yes, the solution is very simple and i dunnow why the manual doesnt mention it.

Try placing a jpg file of ur choice on the cd or dvd or usb flash memory, and choose it or just move the cursor on it, if u choose it(BY PRESSING ENTER) or as if u will play it, it becomes full screen, if u just place the cursor on it from the menu it will show as a small icon on the left of the soings menu of the MP3 file list.
Further more, if u place more than one file, and press enter on one, the PTID5800 will start a slide show! To pause one image, press pause(play) or zoom, u can even forward images and back them up using ffwd and reverse! it only accepts jpg, didnt accept GIF but sometimes it accepts BMP dunnow which ones, but to play it safe, stick to JPGs

MP4 is a codec that is not compatible with this DVD player. Your DVD player will play store bought DVDs just fine. Please read the specifications in the owners manual to see what codecs are compatible with your player.

Okay I am assuming that you are referring to a USB thumb drive aka memory stick which contains mp3, wma (YOUR STEREO ONLY PLAYS MP3 AND WMA VIA USB NOTHING ELSE MANUAL SAYS) audio tracks and a certain specific format (formatting is done on computer, windows and different types of formats are supported on different devices). NTFS, fat32, exfat. Typically I think they like fat32 before but I have had all of my drives formatted for NTFS on newer equipment and had no issue with it. Um since you checked the drive and its working it's probably not that. It could be the connector on your stereo there. But if its new it's probably a formatting/compaitbility issue with the stereo. Heres the manual http://www.poweracoustik.com/pa2012/manuals/PD-710-T.pdf Also this stereo is a really cheap brand so they don't work as well and dont have that great of support. A Google search of that an similar stereos from them came up with several issues. There is very little USB power coming from that port so it's probably only enough power to connect a thumb drive. Some people have cables connecting to other devices and that is probably not going to work. I would get a different usb stick reformat it on the computer and copy some mp3's over.

It may connect to another if receiver, if you have a second screen in the back of the vehicle you can control the unit from there.

It depends on how many channels are on the Amp. If it's a 2 channel you can bridge it using the positive on one channel and use the negative on the other channel. The Amp will give the sub more power bridging the sub.
