Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. I am assuming here that you are doing the install in a Chevrolet and that you are testing the car on the vehicle wire side? If you are using a wire harness adapter and testing there, then you are on the dimmer wire. If you are testing the orange wire on a Chevy vehicle, this should be the same fuse as the cigarette lighter. Again, I can only speculate since you did not list a vehicle. Some vehicles have fuses under the hood near the battery as well as the interior of the vehicle. Let me know what vehicle you have and I can further help you with a solution!

STEREO ETC STAYS ON EVEN AFTER TURNING IT OFF AND REMOVING THE KEY


It sounds like you have a constant 12V power supply wired to the radio instead of a switched 12V. If you've recently installed a new radio, check your wires again. There should be a 12V constant and a 12V switched. The switched 12V will turn the radio off, while the constant 12V is for keeping the clock and radio memory working.

I don't know how I copied and pasted so much sorry about that. But my question is I have orange and red wires with fuses and black wire without do I hook both red and orange to hot and black to ground?


it depends on what radio if you have a cobra 18wx style or maxon's, or a radioshack type the red is constant power 12v, orange is a switched 12v.. IE key like a stereo, and black is ground. if you have a 25 or 29 ltd types or exports they only have 2 wires red 12v and black ground. but you do find some power cords that have all three, and the orange on the 25 / exports are not used.

2003 Xterra radio power dead


trace the wire back to the fuse box with a lighted 12V tester and if the fuse appears to be good, check the hot side of the fuse and go from their. You might have to find another hot point (key activated) to wire the stereo into with an inline fuse.
