Did you use the correct adapters? I will show you what I mean in a moment, via pic.

That is a strange one. there's no way of checking if the wires for your new radio need the power bypassed through the lights before it turns on, like a logic gate. What adapters, if any, did you use??

Well learn from your mistakes next time, could have been the straight battery wire, then you would have had a fire on your hands, ah well at least its sorted, btw nice colour Dave :)
