    PLEASE DO NOT WATCH A MOVIE WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING . It is against the law in pretty much every place I can think of. Now that I have the disclaimer out of the way. Not that I suggest or advocate doing this. But most just need the parking brake input grounded.

    Nope. I tried that first! I have a panasonic model with a blue wire with a yellow stripe. It doesn't do anything when i hook it up to the ground!

    Try testing your emergency brake switch with a meter. If it's positive. Then put a switch inline with 12v +.

    I'll try that and see what happens. Most people i ask, say that i need to hook it up to
    be grounded when the p.brake is applied.

    Would u happen to know where the emergency brake switch would be located? I have a
    98 Navigator. I assume the wiring would be the same as an Expedition.

    Well i finally found out what i wasn't doing! I have a pioneer avm 700r master unit and it has a wire that goes to the rear video outputs that needs to be grounded. Once i grounded that wire, grounded the parking brake wire on the dvd and turned my system on, i was able to watch the dvd player for the first time! It is superb too!Thanx for the help!
