I'm hoping that in the 2008, they didn't require a signal to it and I could just ground it somewhere inside the cubby hole where the head unit goes.
you will need a bypass if you want function while the parking brake is no engaged. buy one off ebay, if you can't make one. if you can wire your harness, you can wire a bypass. it's very simple. i promise.
