Just ground the parking brake wire. I grounded it using the cig lighter ground wire and it works perfect.


Check your other thread in off topic. I responded to that one also.

You can ground it to the radio ground in the harness. You have to make sure that is all that the radio needs. Some models require a relay.

Like I said just ground it. It's a jensen so it's nothing high class. Just ground the parking brake wire to any other ground wire and you'll be able to play it while the truck is in motion.

if its a jensen head unit you might just need the relay. my cousin has one in his car, and he had to get some little switch there under the dash, and its not as simple as just ground play n go...its like a 3 stage thing, it sucks...

Oh ok. I've done many jensen's too and I've never needed a relay to bypass the parking brake wire. I've always just grounded the wire and it seemed to work fine. I'm sure this is a newer Jensen and I haven't dealt with the newer models so they might require a relay.....

As Ty says..."don't quote me on this, I know nothing"........LOL

Well didn't know exactly about a Jensen. Never owned anything Jensen in my life. I know my eclipse has to be grounded, and my pioneer has to have a relay that is why I said relay. Every stereo is a little different in some ways.
