    Default Fitting New Stereo HELP

    Hi

    I've just got a new HU to fit but the ISO lead that i got with it has a red(switched) and orange(illumination) wire from the power section that are not connected to anything.

    Do i need to connect these to a power source if so where to?

    Thanks

    Red went to Ciggy Lighter(Switched)

    And orange was just for the HU to dim when the headlights are turned on so i left it disconnected
