    Hi-end car audio installer question!

    Alpine flip-up screen HU..
    Making the screen visible (dvd, nav., etc) viewable while the car is rolling, there are two wires: one to brake pedal switch, one to park brake wire.

    I know theres a way to wire the park brake wire to a toggle switch, that you can "trick" the HU into thinking the car is sitting stationary, but I just cant remember..
    do you connect one side of the toggle switch to ground, and the other side to the park brake wire from radio?

    Help is appreciated!

    Regards,

    thanks. so.. I hook the brake pedal one up normally, then hook the park brake one to one side of the toggle, then the other side of the toggle goes to ground, correct?

    Dude didn't bring me a manual, and it's been many moons since i've done car audio (like 2000 was the last year i did it professionally.. )

    If its the same as it was a few years back then youll need two switches, one to act like the park brake, and the other to act like the service brake. Alpine thought they they could make it harder than just grounding one wire

    Should be the yellow/black for service and yellow/blue for park??? Its been a while

    My new Alpine HU (IVA-W205) has the same deal, and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it, yet. On mine, the parking brake connection has to be transitioned twice, and the brake pedal once, or something like that. Anyways, I'm not going to want to have to do a dance of the switches everytime, so I'm probably going to buy one of these:

    you need a pac-tr7 trigger module to trick the Alpine units into thinking the ebrake is up.

    edit: just saw what ray posted..what he said...thats what you need

    well, my buddy totaled his car, and I rebuilt him another one, using everything from his old car. He pulled the stereo system out of the car, but there was no 3rd party module anywhere. He said:
    "this wire was connected to a toggle switch, and there was another wire on the toggle switch. I think it went to ground, but I'm not sure. I don't remember exactly."

    It's a few years old (this model HU), so Im not sure. I tried searching the intrawebs for it, but nothing. Alpine no longer lists the manual, either..

    I'll figure it out, I guess. arg...

    I dont remember, actually.. I went and looked, but I'll have to prolly pull the seat out, or the HU out of the dash to find out.. I'll email him and ask if he remembers...
