    Question Wiring Clarification Please

    Right, I have searched through this site and the whole internet and still can't find the defintive answer.

    Lots of stuff about swapping the constant and switch wires to the stereo otherwise you lose stations, though my problem is that the stereo stays on after removing the keys.

    Not sure what to do. Do I have to take a wire, join it to the black one from cigarette lighter and connec to ignition on stereo?

    Side effect of this is that the steering adaptor doesn't work as the power is always going to the unit....

    Had this on my last Sony Head unit though changed to a JVC this time (AVX11) and really wanrt this sorted....

    Any help would eb greatly appreciated

    Have the JVC AVX11 with all the adaptors.

    Had a sony in before which did the same thing (stayed on after removing keys)

    Going to take out the stereo tonight and try swapping the red and yellow over though think this is already done!!

    Was curious about the whole cigarette lighter feed for the ignition...

    Totally confused though hopefully having a closer look tonight might shed some light.

    From the car - is red 12v constant and yellow ignition?

    as your car has ISO connection.. yes you have to switch round the red/orange wire acordign to standard ISO.

    Right, had a look at lunchtime and found that even with the cables (yellow and red) the other way round it still has power when ignition is off.

    The thing is I;ve found that the live feed jumps the back of the iso and connects to the ignition feed (picture attached - sorry phone camera)

    So the ignition dfeed is getting a constant live. This doesn't look hacked together either so I'm a little surprised. Can't find anywhere for the ignition feed to connect to either.



    Should I runa line from cigarette lighter to the ignition line? if so can i use any wire......the rear camera wire for example or would this be too weak to carry power?

    have you tried to "swop" them to normal.. as the extra iso block that you have migt be swoped from standard...

    but i would say it looks like it should.

    swapped the red and yellow back and forth. The problem is where do I get the ignition feed from as it;s being powered by the constant from what i can see..

    they should not both be constant live.. if you put red to red and yellow to yellow, you should be able to messauge withc is withs (just remember not to hav keys in the ignition) else i ignition feed would be possible from cig.ligther.

    red to red and yell to yell has the same effect as red to yel and vice versa....no keys - radio on.

    will have to run a wire from the black? cable at cigarette lighter and to the ignition cable on the iso......
