Talking 04-08 parking brake wire for dvd feature of aftermarket cd/dvd head unit

This may be a silly question to most of you but i installed a pioneer x1500 in my 04 f150 and I may have misplaced the instructions for the light green wire you clip onto the parking brake for the DVD feature. If somebody has a picture or could tell me which wire that would be great, Thanks!

It's the light green wire with a red easy splice on the end. If you want to be able to watch DVDs while in motion (for kids or passengers) cut the wire in half, install a basic $3 toggle switch to connect the two halves, and then run the easy splice to the black ground in the back of the head unit. Then simply turn your toggle switch on, off, and back on again and it fools the radio into thinking the parking break is on.
I have the same radio and love it!!
