There is no wiring. It's a steel cable that runs from the lever to the rear brakes. Also, it's not an E-brake. It's a parking brake.

Not that I know of. What are you looking to power? The 12V outlet is hot whenever the key is in the car.

OK this is an easy fix then. So basically if that wire has power than none of the functions in you head unit work, did I get that right?

If so just leave it disconnected.

I haven't taken the 5th gen center console apart, but the plug should be at the base of the parking brake lever just like the 4th gen.

Your car must be broke then, LOL. If you apply the parking brake you should get the word "BRAKE" light up right under your speedo needle. Also, the parking brake switch activates your headlights to come on at night when you put your parking brake lever down.

Here is a couple of pics with the "BRAKE" light on and off.

Huh, guess I need to take a closer look at my speedo then. Maybe it's a vert thing? Because I saw that the second pic was of an auto.

OK, heres how it goes. Tahke the plug for the Z140 that has the RCA wires on it. Lift up on the plug wire access piece. Pull out the yellow w/ black line wire(mute wire). Youre ging to reinsert that wire directly one hole below, then push the plastic access panel for the plug back down til is tight. Now youre gonna take that wire and youre parking brake wire(green on pioneer) and ground both of those to either the dash/chassis or you can just put a ttap on the black ground of the radio and insert the wires into the ttap with a male connector and youre golden

If you do the brake bypass you will get a nag screen that will say your ebrake is not connected when the car is first started up car. You just press the ok and you ok. Technically it against the law to bypass the ebrake.

Its not illegal to bypass. Its illegal to watch a video within the drivers view. Every radio we install people have us do the bypass on it.
