Re: help!!!

this is only an educated guess, its only the pinkie that im not sure of
Yellow - ignition, power on with key on
Red - Constant Power, save presets eetc
Pink might be for a power ariel or amp ,

Re: help!!!

I'll have a stab at these...

yellow - to +12V power terminal which is energised at all times.
red - to +12V power terminal which is energised in the accessory position of the ignition key switch.
pink/blue - this would go to the arial?

also connect the red and yellow power leads only after all others have been connected.

lol... I was looking at my HU installation manual (sony though), so i'd assume that the power up wires would be the same.

anyway just connect them up and if they are not the right way around, your clock settings on the HU will not be stored when you turn it off and on again... if you know what i mean (then just swap the wires if need be).

Re: help!!!

yes, no harm, the are poewer power wires, one to keep your clock and presets the other to power the unit up only when you have the key on

so as theman said if it doesnt turn off when you take the key out swap them around
