    1. Lift up on shift lever surround. You can leave the shift knob screwed on, but it's easier to take it, the boot, and surround off.

    2. Unscrew the two screws revealed below climate control.

    3. Carefully (I cannot stress this enough) pull up on hte stereo surround until you feel/hear the bottom half come up.

    From there, take a relatively small flathead screwdriver fitted with electrical tape (unless you want your console scratched), and wedge it in between the stereo surround and console. Use the screwdriver as leverage and pry the top half of hte surround off.

    4. After the surround is off, you should see the stock stereo held in place by about 6 screws I think. I remove these and the stereo should be able to be taken off. At the back there will be a harness, antenna cable and a clip to take off.

    Sorry, couldn't find pictures, but it's a pretty easy process.

    mmm, well if that device is anything like a turbo timer (which has that parking brake feature as well) you should be able to just tape it off.

    I know my parking brake feature runs off the detected difference in voltage, not the lack of.

    Have fun w/ the install.
