Question about JVC Car Audio & Video
Taking a flying guess the wire could have two possible functions - either providing the radio with additional illumination when the vehicle lights are on or if the illumination is permanent it could dim the display, etc. when the lights are switched on.

Here's the wire colors for your KD-AR560:
Black = Ground (to vehicle chassis)
Yellow = Constant 12V (power)
Red = Accessory (to vehicle accessory terminal)
Blue/White = Remote turn-on lead (to remote amp)
Orange/White = Illumination (to vehicle light control switch)
Brown = Cell Phone terminal
White = Left Front Speaker positive (+)
White/Black = Left Front Speaker negative (-)
Gray = Right Front Speaker positive (+)
Gray/Black = Right Front Speaker negative (-)
Green = Left Rear Speaker positive (+)
Green/Black = Left Rear Speaker negative (-)
Violet = Right Rear Speaker positive (+)
Violet/Black = Right Rear Speaker negative (-)
Hope this helps.

If you are talking about the trailer brake pigtail under the dash, the brown wire is for the illumination on the brake controller, if applicable.
My reese hand held controller did not use this, so I just blind end tapped it into the harness.
If your brake controller does not have background illumination, then you don't need the brown wire.
Sounds like the controller is similar.

Do not cut the wires from the car. Instead, call Crutchfield at 888-955-6000 and order the adapter part number 120701003. When you call them, ask for color coding. For JVC, refer to the attached picture. Match the adapter color code with that of JVC. If the adapter color code is the same, then connect ground (black), battery (yellow), and wire from ignition switch (red) securely. Turn on the car and see the radio works. If it works, connect one by one speakers and confirm. Remember, perfect connection gives reliable installation.

Get an adaptor wiring harness. It plugs directly into the plug in the truck. The wires are all labeled and you won't have to hack up the wiring in the truck. You can get the adaptor whereever they sell car stereos.
