Working on installing a new double DIN head unit from Alpine
It has a parking break lead that needs to be connected to the power supply side of the parking switch to transmit the parking break status to the unit.
You can’t change some of the settings and options / setup unless the unit sees the parking break on.
I have yet to look for the parking break switch and try to figure out how to wire it.
I suspect there is power supplied to the parking break lead when the break is on
Wondering if I could just connect the parking break lead to the 12V power - wondering if that would send a signal indicating the break is “on” all the time allowing me to make changes without having to stop and park.
Thoughts? Anyone try this or have other suggestions?
