    Question New Head Unit need help with wiring!!

    today i recieved my Kenwood KVT-526dvd in the post today
    http://www.kenwood-electronics.co.uk...26DVD/details/

    and in the installation manual it says i need to conect a wire to my parking break detection switch harness

    i assume this is so that it know when my handbreak is on so it lets me plays dvds?
    will it let me play dvds if i dont connect this wire?
    and if not what and where is the parking break detection switch harness? and how do i connect it?

    i also have a reverse view camera and i need to connect a wire to the vehicles reverse lamp harness
    where is this located and how do i connect it?
    and where is an ideal mounting spot for my reverse camera? i have a coupe

    thanks for any help

    Iya mate the hand brake cable just needs to be connected to ground (-) so any available bolt should be ok, they say to use the hand brake connector so when you are driving and the handbrake is down you will not have a picture on the dvd screen and when the hand brake is on the picture will be seen. As for the rear view camera i assume you can tap into the reverse lights from the back of the light cluster?
