Save yourself a lot of trouble and just ground the wire. There a very few models where grounding the wire doesn't work.

There is no "switch" but more of a button that is released whenever the ebrake is engaged.

There is no "switch:. Pull up the console byh the ebrake and all you have to do is connect it to one of those wires. But usually for the bypass you just ground the parking brake wire. If you are not interested in the bypass then just hook it to the wire in the parking brake connection.

"The SJB receives the signal from the praking
brake switch via a standard wire"

Where is that standard wire? Under the console? Does that mean I have to run the pink cable next to where the transmission is, under the center console? Thanks.
ReRead the above post. No, you dont have to run
a wire all the way to the center console.

"I'll check the workshop manual and post the wire
color. You can then maybe pick it up at the SJB
located under the passengers side kick panel. "

Looks like you need a step by step process.
Step 1 Remove the passengers side door sill plate.
Step 2 Remove the passengers side kick panel
Step 3 Remove the nut holding the SJB to the A pillar
Step 4 Pull the SJB out from the bottom until it unhinges and hangs free
Step 5 Find the right wire on one of the 7 or 8 connectors and 100s of wires
Step 5 Strip the insulation back avoiding damaging the copper conductors
Step 6 Find a wire of the correct size and attach it to the wire and solder
Step 7 Run this wire under the dash to the head unit and attach
Step 9 Reverse the order of steps 1-4 and reinstall the items removed
lol. Thanks! I appreciate your instructions, my friend. I'll try first attaching it to a ground, but I don't think that will work on my UV8 (since it doesn't work on the Jensen 9312--disabling requires a pulsing connection, not a steady one). If that doesn't work, and I can't find the "parking brake switch" cable, I'll just jerry-rig a little button that will make negative contact by pressing it. Thanks everyone. :-)

The parking brake/console harness runs right next to the center dash area
and you could find the needed wire there. I'll get the specifics from the
workshop manual and post them tomorrow.
