hello?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So which one is power and which is memory? Or do I wore them both to the red power from the stereo
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you have a diagram that would be great or just the color codes?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.
They are "both" Constant 12 Volts +The Factory Radio is controlled via DATAYou should use a Wiring Adapter so you do NOT have to find a Ignition / Accessory source, but if you have already cut the plug off & "hard wired", here is wiringSee attachment belowIgnition / Accessory can be got at Ignition Switch Harness or Fuse box
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah not helpful, I don't even know what half of that means. Simple would be better, ie the red and black goes to the constant, the white and orange goes to? Etc
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.
