Huricaneduke:

I would ground the parking brake no matter which method is used. I have not experimented with disconnecting the parking brake from the ground because this wire is in the harness from the display unit. Once the wiring is done in the dash and the harness is tied up with tie wraps, I don't like to mess with it, causes squeeks and rattles. When running the wires in the dash it's just so easy to tie all the black ground wires together along with the parking brake wire, so, I do it no matter what. There are so many wires that have to be connected to the dash display unit, we don't want to make work later once the dash is put back together.

Talking about dash wires, Crutchfiel sells custom radio wiring harnesses for almost every car and truck. This enables you to remove the factory radio, including attached factory harness, just in case you want to re-install the factory radio. You wire the Crutchfiel harness to the Avic harness on your work bench, then, plug it into the factory connector which is left in the vehicle. Saves you the trouble of crimping wires together while hanging upside down and reaching in tight places. Once you get the wires in, and the unit working, it's time to button things up, never to be disturbed again. It's bad enough that you have all kinds of wires running from the hideaway unit, TV tuner and CD changer under the carpet. Almost makes you want to pay the guy the $100 bucks to have him install the stuff.

Go with the R 197 bypass. I had the three switches and the video fed through the rear camera input. What a pain to mess with. Instead simply do the R 197 bypass and never worry about it again.

also if you go through the camera input, there will be no sound.  if you want soung, you have to run RCA's to the A/V in on the brain and switch the source to A/V.  but like everyone says, do the r-197 bypass.  it only takes about 15 minutes.  It is way easier than you think.  you'll thank us in the long run.
