As some of you may have read my other post i had a problem with the wiring colors. But i got the manuel and i got to hook up the wires. The manuel says i have to connect the orange wire on the deck to the consistant wire on the harness which is the yellow wire. Then i have to connect the red acc wire on the deck to the ignition wire on the harness which is red. The problem is the radio wont turn on unless i hook up the yellow,orange and both reds together. (All four wires) And the radio will stay on even if the keys out the ignition. What can be the problem here? Anybody have any ideas just let me know.

Go pick up a cheap multi meter and it will make things much more easy for you. That way you will be able to test each wire and see what voltage each are showing and when (ex: key on, key off) With knowing that info, you will be able to sort through where the problem is located.
