The red wire from the stereo is 12v signal, basically when you turn the key on it send 12v to the red wire to make your stereo come on. Everything else is fine since you can insert and eject cds. You may have pulled the signal wire loose when you changed the ignition switch, check the wires behind the radio and the wires to the ignition switch.
This vehicle does not have a switched power suppy in the factory harness. The orange wire in the car harness is a constant 12 volts.
To resolve connect the 12 volt power supply from the head unit to a switched circut at the fuse block and this will resolve your problem.
The idiots didn't hook up the yellow wire straight to a battery/ignition source.Tell them they hooked the red and yellow wires together and you want it fixed.I guarantee it.I don't care what kind of car you have(kinda)for at least 30 years there has been a wire built in to factory stereo harnesses just for that purpose.They f***ed up.Unless you have about a 1975 car that is.In any American or Japanese or Kia,that's the setup.I would imagine with all the technology these days,practically any car has that setup.What are you in the UK?I just googled them.Good luck!

You have two wire of 12V + going to your stereo, one is hot all the time and one comes from the ignition switch ( which turn on the stereo when you switch on the car), if it's the +12V one which is hot all the time, you can take another wire from your car's cigarette lighter 12V outlet. if it's the ignition +12V one, you can trace back the wire to ignition switch and change the wire if it's broken.
Hope it helps and please rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!
Red is power to from ignition to cd deck Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory. Black is ground Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier. I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.
I went to Halfords and asked someone!.. The pink wire has no use and doesn't need connecting to anything. The red wire need's to connect to a temporary power source (the cigarette lighter) via scotch lock connection. Only problem there was having to take most of the centre console apart which was a bit fiddly but on the whole not to bad. Start to finish the job took about 40 minutes.
I took my car to halfords to have my stereo fitted (also bought stereo from Halfords). they basically had to taken everything out of the middle bit to get to the stereo (All the air vents and control switches etc). It took about an hour to do, but at least you know there is no quick way to steal the radio once it is in. I think it helped that I managed to get a guy that had once been a macanic so he knew what he was doing.
Hope this helps
first of all putting in non genuine stereos usually you have wires left check the fuse in back of stereo check all your fuses under your dash and in the bonnet even if wires touched momentarely its enough to blow multiple fuses which may be your problem your wiring may be fine see how you go
