Exclamation E-Brake Access (HELP!!)

I just bought a new TV tuner deck for my 00' 323. It requires that i hook a cable up to the negative wire on the ebrake (for security reasons). Can anyone help me find the wire and get access to it? Or can I simply bypass it all together.

"Security Reasons" my ass....they obviously don`t want you watching TV while you`re driving (or if the car is moving), hence the e-brake hookup, which will no doubt prevent the unit from powering up unless the e-brake is engaged. It will probably work just fine when hooked to *any* key-activated circuit.
