Traction control wont turn on

Hey guys

So i just finished installing the single din radio, and i believe i konw what the problem is but i figured i'd ask before i take everything apart.. again.

I didnt want to hook up the ground cable from the radio to the e-brake because i wanted to play videos without having the e-brake engaged. So what i did was i grounded the cable to a screw that is attached to the frame. Now the dvds dont play so i konw the cable mustve came undone or something because the screen says to engage the e-brake. But, the real problem here is that my traction control is fully off (its as if you were to hold the DSC button till both the "brake" and the dsc light came on). If i press/hold the dsc button nothing happens, its still off. Would something like this cause my car to override my traction control?? Or is it something else?

If anyone knows anything about this, i'd greatly appreciate it.

PS: I used a wiring harness that i bought from EAS, and the radio i installed with a dual xdvd8183
