the focus is switched ignition meaning any aftermarket stereo will only power on with the ignition in the acc position as the original stereo had the ford battery saver in it so it would power on without the key in the acc position but would switch off after an hour aftyermarket units dont have this and it would need wiring to a permenant live which isnt advised try it wired up again and put the key in the acc position and see if it works if no power then the red and yellow may need swapped round

I did power it on with the engine running in the end. I have a feeling there was a loose connection but I'll try again later tonight. :-(

The alpine does have instructions but I don't really understand them.

its a lot of wiring to be honest but usually its easy enough all youre wires seem fine it may well be trial and error with this one

WOOOHOOO!!! Its working I noticed that when I plugged it in, 2 wires came out the harness 1 of which was the yellow power the other was a speaker. After managing to clip them in without the wires popping out and reading the instructions which I now understand its works! and keeps the radio stations etc.

The only issue I have now is my steering wheel stalk that is able to change my track and volume etc doesn't work. I think I should have a harness that has 3 adapters not 2. I was assured this was the right harness! Im not so sure.

thanks for you helps guys.

Told you I was a NOOOOOOBB! ;-)
