Re: [DML] New Radio *WIRING* Installation Question

For some reason, the purple wire is not the hot wire
as I have it connected to my yellow (power) button
from the radio deck and the radio doesn't come on at
all now.  If I switch it back to lgrn/wht, then at
least the radio deck comes on when I start the car,
but none of the radio settings stay.

Also, I don't have a blue wire coming from the
Delorean at all.

How can I get a power wire that either works, or how
can I check the purple wire, I tried to follow the
path to where it goes, but was unsuccessful.

Thanks, Royce
