    Default Stereo switched live

    Is it fused somewhere?

    After trying to install my stereo for days I found my multimeter and found that the original loom (52 plate) has no switched live??! (There is certainly no current coming through it!)

    Am I as well just to nick one from the cig lighter or is that wire fused somewhere? The one in the fusebox on the end of the dash is fine by the way

    Cheers

    On a 52 plate you should have a red and a yellow wire, those are your permanent and switched lives. For most aftermarket radios, you need to swap those two round (red to yellow and vice versa).
