    Default STEREO WIRING in

    Got my stereo, got my wiring harness, got my aerial adaptor, got my bluetooth kit. No problems there.

    All fitted... no problems there.

    Ignition on, problem there! Had to switch the red and yellow for the perm live, knew this cos wasn't storing stations. I'm normally good with these sort of things, so i know i've got the perm live now.

    The problem is, that i don't appear to be getting a switched live anywhere! If i put red and yellow, to the red from car, works fine, so i know everything stereo-wise is working.

    But try to connect the switched live separate and i get nothing, any ideas??

    The wiring harness (adaptor thing) is all wired straight across, but the one with "+12v switched" written on it isn't, it is just approx 1 metre long and connected to nothing, does this mean i've gotta trace a switched 12v from somewhere else?

    Tried touching it on the other wires coming from cars loom, but nothing.


    PLEASE PLEASE get me out of this tricky one!
