help 2011 ranger remote install

I am new here but not to rangers. I have met my match trying to install remote start on my 2011 ranger gas,automatic,4x4. I am installing autovox model aps-687a. I know i will need by pass and have on but need to get that far. I am to the point that i need to hook up brown/black wire to out put of brake switch if switch switches to ground?not sure what they are saying. there will be more questions as these instructions are real bad. i could also use a site for good wiring diagram. thanks guys

The remote starter is set up so that if the vehicle starts with the remote and someone hits the brake pedal without the key in the ignition and turned on, then the result is the truck will turn off if the brake pedal is pressed. Its a safety measure.
Look under the dash above the brake pedal and you will see the brake switch with 6 wires into it(I think) can put a volt-meter in each wire to test if it is Zero volts or 12 volts.
