Yeah my story happened quite recently wheni was helping my mate install a stereo in his EL, what happened was we must of arched the acc power when cutting the wires of the stereo. Anyway the first thing we done was to find contiueous power for the stereo then we can determine the speaker wires etc.
Spent ages, couldn't find it we decided to take it to another mate "elecrician by trade" who might be able to find the conitueous power, low and behold when we tryed to start the car up it woudn't start, checked the fuse box and "silly me didn't check all of the fuses" found no fuses broken, so we called nrma convinced we have blown either a relay or somethin else nrma spent ages doin the tests etc and then he checked all the fuses and sure enough found a blown fuse. Must admit i was abit :o :o :o :o about it.
Ahh but after we fixed the fuse and found contiuous power the stereo installation was a breeze.:D
