Radio Installation question
Hey guys I am intalling a newer Pioneer stereo in my '71 Spider and I have come across a couple problems. The radio has a wire which needs a constant 12V to power it and another which needs a constant 12v from the ignition to turn the radio on and off with the car. I got the first wire sorted out using the PO's radio power source. But the PO did not use the wire which goes to the ignition, meaning he had to turn the radio on and off manually. I want the radio to turn off when I turn off the car like the radio was designed to do. There are 4 wires coming out of the ignition and I connected the wire to the black wire which goes back to starter, thinking this would turn the radio on and off with the ignition. I was wrong, The radio does not turn on at all, does anybody know which wire I need to use? The four wires are black, brown, red, and green&black.
