start by tracing the memory wire and see if you can find the break for starters... if not fine a constant lead that is on no matter what ( I believe your cigarette lighter will work nicely for this) and tap into it

First thing you need to do is check the fuses for the radio. Most of the time it is the 7.5 amp radio fuse underneath the hood, but i don't remember if it is the constant fuse. If not this, then check the fuse inside the vehicle. If both these fuses are good then you have to run a new constant wire. Im pretty sure the cig. lighter is not run on constant power, but whenever i have to run a new constant wire for a deck on these vehicles, i go to the fuse box inside the car. There are 4 or 5 male spades underneath all the fuses. One is constant, another is switch, another is parking lights and dunno what the others are. Just test the spades and connect a female spade to it and run it to the radio.... problem solved

In some cars it is but you'd need to test it to be sure... the best way to do it is run off the fuse block like someone said earlier... or you could get crazy and run a line straight off of your battery *L* (I've seen that one done before too...) have you tested the lead with a volt meter to make sure that it is in fact dropping/loosing voltage when the car goes off?

coupe_hybrid have you got it fixed yet? If not I JUST happen to have a Mitchel print out of stereo diagrams for your car. My step daughter has same one

Any way I could scan in Adobe and e-mail them to you. I just need to know if you have premuim or base radio. Premium has tweeters up in corner of dash.

Let me know or PM me your e-mail!
