Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...Dual brand double din head unit..."

Depending on the model, consider a RESET.

Most Dual models need to sense a change from Parking Brake not engaged to Parking Brake engaged.

This feature of these models would not work if the Parking Brake sensor wire is bypassed to be always engaged.

It is a dual xdvd276bt. So do you think if instead of running the parking brake wire directly to a ground, I should run it to a toggle switch that runs to a ground? That way I can switch it on and off flr the radio to sense the change
Car Electronics Technician: Louie, Car Electronics Technician replied 4 months ago

Yes, a toggle switch would serve to simulate the Parking Brake action.

It may require a couple of toggling the switch.
