Default Couple installation questions

First question is for those with double din head units with or without navigation. Where ids the best place to connect the parking brake wire? I don't I'll be watching too many movies and such in the car, but it would be nice to have all the functionality available to me if I wanted to at some point.

2nd question is about running new speaker wire to the front doors in a 2001 Bonnie? The rubber grommets are a bitch to get through. I can't see where the wires are coming through on the interior of the car. Any tricks to it? I feel like I have half a system not being able to put more power to my interior speakers. My 4 channel is just sitting there looking all lonely. Any help would be nice thanks.

What type of Deck ?? the new ones need a grounded switch !

Best thing to run the speaker wire is a piece of coat hanger !!

It'* the Pioneer AVH-P3200DVD. Just to be clear, I'm not looking to disable the video lockout when the car is not in park. I need to know where the parking brake switch is. I know it sounds like a simple question, but I've looked at wiring diagrams, maybe I'm just not seeing it or maybe it labeled differently than what I'm looking for.

As for the speaker wire, I guess I just gotta get in there and do it. Just gotta find somewhere i can have my doors hanging out. Don't really have convenient off street parking where I live.

to be totally honest the parking brake wire would just go the the ground on the parking brake.,... I can't say that one has ever made it that far on anyone of my installs LOL

and for the doors... if you want the stock look thats the route
