Hi,\n\nBeing the poor college student that I am...\n\nBought a stereo to replace the stock cassete player. Not much money so\nI opted to ditch the wiring harness idea and not pay the ridiculous\namount of 20 bucks for one. With some ingenuity, figured it out.\nGround, battery, accesory.. hooked up. The rest was plug and chug...\nonly 8 speaker wires were left.. Everything works fine.. xcept.. it\ndoesn't keep the time or bass/treble settings etc...\n\nNow, according to the diagram on the new stereo the yellow wire is to\nthe battery for contionous power. I tried disconnecting this wire and\neven putting it to another wire.. the stereo did not turn on. From\nthis, I concluded that all of the 3 main wires (ground, battery and\nacces.) were in the right place, otherwise the stereo did not turn on.\n\nSo, all of the wires from the back of the stereo were used, besides\none blue/white one with a cap on it for a power antenna. However, it\ndoes not keep the time if the key is taken out of the ignition. There\nare about 3 wires left on the original factory harness that were not\ntied to anything on the new stereo.. My best educated guess is that\none of these wires provided the "always on" to the old/factory stereo\n.. How, and once I find this wire.. Should it just be tied in with the\nyellow battery wire? Or what?\n\nWould a wiring diagram help? and if so where can i get my hands on\none..\n\nMuch appreciated.
