yes, best buy or other car audio stores should have the correct wiring harness you need. as for the parking brake thing im not quite sure how that works, but best idea would be to put that on a switch so if you get pulled over u can flip the switch so u dont get popped for watchin movies while drivin. ik my brother did that, not for sure how tho. some other members should know.

Yeah I know what you mean also there'* a wierd wire that says reverse on it I'm guessing that probably if you have a back up camera so it turns on

Well, there is two wires that come off the parking brake that cause the light to come on when the pedal is depressed. Find the negative wire and splice the wire that goes to the connection on the stereo. That will cause the DVD function to work.

The problem here is what your asking isn't about the Bonneville, it'* about the unit your installing. We can't say for sure what hooking up that wire will do. If I had to take a guess, it'* looking for a signal saying, yes, the parking brake is now on. If it were just a ground then you could connect it anywhere. Is there a wiring diagram with the unit? If you can scan that in and post it here we may have a better chance of helping you.

Also, keep in mind there'* a reason why it wants the parking brake on to work. I understand why you want to bypass this, but the law is the law.
