    Your radio will have 12vdc power at all times at one wire in the harness, this is for the memory, so you don't lose time & stations (pre-set)

    There will be another power wire that only feeds 12vdc when key in "on" or "accessories" positions. Have you tried pulling radio out & making sure you have clean, tight connectors/connections at rear of radio?

Check the plug on the passenger side firewall. There's a resistor or something bolted into the firewall. The plug may just be corroded.
