If you hook both the red and the yellow up to your acc circuit in the car, chances are you're not going to be able to store any stations on that new deck.

The reason they include the 12V ignition line is for American cars where if you kill the ignition, the stereo goes off. In imports (at least VW's) you jump the 12V ignition from the deck harness to 12V constant so that the stereo stays on if the car gets turned off. This is a full manual setup, essentially.

Are you sure that you got that right with the constant 12V being the yellow line and the ignition 12V the red one? that sounds awfully backwards to me, and I've seen a lot of aftermarket stereos out there.

PM me if you have any questions.

You might try contacting the tech support guys at Crutchfield (crutchfield.com). They have a lot of vehicle make-specific information and they are usually so helpful that I suspect they'd give you their assistance even if you hadn't bought the unit from them.

run the yellow though the firewall and hook directly to the battery, but be sure to use a fuse or fuseable link somewhere in between.
easy, and RIGHT.........

Find a hot wire in the wiring harness. If the previous owner cut off wiring connectors, you're going to have to probe individual wires until you find one that's live when the ignition is OFF. Just make sure you put an inline fuse in there.

If you have a wiring diagram, you can figure out which color wire should be live and save yourself some time.

red - accessory
yellow - live wire
orange - headlight/dimmer switch as mentioned above
