Hi the ignition wire needs constant power thats how it saves your memory. You will need a test light to find the wire that is constant power. With the key off touch the light tester to the power wires from the radio harness the one that turns the light on with the key off is the ignition wire and is to be connected to the ignition wire from the radio.
I had the same problem, it occurred after my battery had run flat. To
fix it you need to reset the unit. To do this, remove the clip-off
fascia, and on the main body of the unit there small hole, just to the
left of the connector. Push a narrow pointed object such as a pen nib
into this hold until you feel the click. The unit is now reset and
should be working properly. You'll have to retune your saved radio
stations, but the cd player should now be working.
ok, the red and yellow wires serve 2 different purposes.the yellow supplies constant power to your stereo, and the red is switched power. what youve done is combine the two, and connect them to a constant power source. like this, your stereo wont be switched with your ignition. so take off the red wire, but leave the yellow wire connected to the wire its already on. make sure your stereo fuse is good in the fusebox of the car. then, use a test light, with the ignition switch on, to find the second wire on your cars harness that has power. that will be your switched power. connect that one to your red wire, and that will solve your problem.
Check your Ignition 1 & ignition 3 fuses in the inside fuse block,also check the body fuse 10amp in the inside fuse block.Keyless entry should take back off once you found the blown fuse.hope this helps
goto the auto parts store and purchase a pair of stereo keys, fascia adaptor and wiring harness (you may need to get fascia and harness from a car audio store or circuit city.)
Then use the stereo keys to remove the factory stereo. Push them into the small holes on the front of the stereo push them slightly outwards and pull to release the stereo. Unplug all the connectors from back keeping track of where they fall.
Insert wiring harness into the stock wiring
attach fascia in regards to its packaged instructions.
Place cage from new stereo into the hole in the dash using the tabs on cage to secure it,
Attach stereo to other end of new harness along with aerial (may need adaptor for this also depending on the new head unit.)
Insert stereo into new cage and voila nice new stereo.
It's usually the flexible pcb that connects the fascia to the main board that needs replacing, because the fascia opens and closes each time the ignition is turned on and off the connector flexes and eventually some of it snaps, sometimes if you pop the trim off you can see the snapped pcb on the bottom right hand side of your radio
