    The green wire does nothing!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new here.. and am glad I found this forum because it rocks!

    Anyway I have bought an indash LCD monitor off ebay and when I went to wire it up (bench test) I found that the green wire that goes to the handbrake does nothing. Whether it is earthed or not the unit still works. I would have thought it shouldn't work if the handbrake is on? Or is the manufacturer just adding a green wire that really does nothing to make it legal to install in cars?

    This is the unit I bought

    Cheers

    I don't know the screen so I can't tell anything about the green wire.

    Something else now: I'm looking at the specs and I don't think this screen is VGA. Are you hooking up a computer on it?

    It's obviously not VGA, it says RCA inputs and only shows RCA connectors... he never said it was VGA
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    Did I ever say that he said it was VGA? I was just wondering if he thinks he will have quality issues.
