You are suppose to tap into the car supply side e-brake wire before it going into the e-brake switch terminal. My pioneer HU unit comes with a long e-brake lead that has a round wire clip that supposely clip and latch right onto the car e-brake wire - it will slice through insulation and make a conctact with the copper inside.

However, there won't be enough room on the car e-brake wire in this car. I ended up taking another wire - insert one end and tap it into where the the car e-brake wire made contact with the e-brake switch terminal. run this wire back and out to under the dash and join the connection with the HU's e-brake lead there. This also make it easy just in case we may want to put a switch to enable/disable e-brake bypass.

Power for the Amp. I imagine the 12V Cigar outlet inside the console storage box which is the easiest to take out.
