Hi,
just purchased CDA9886R to go in Vauxhall Astra, with patch and lead for steering remotes. Connected ok, everything works, however, unlike the VDO unit, when the ignition key is taken out, power is disconnected. I can't turn the unit on without the ignition key in, and, more annoyingly, all the preset radio stations are lost and need retuning. I can take a direct feed from the nearby glove box light, but which wire on the alpine leads would I connect it to if this is the way?

Many thanx

You might need to swap the permanetn live and the memory live over on the adaptor (these are normally coloured red and yellow). This will make sure that the memory is retained on the unit when you switch the ignition off.

If you want to be able to play the stereo all the time, then one of the above wires (red OR yellow) will be a permanent live and it's already behind the stereo. Just wire up both of the wires (red AND yellow) from the stereo to this (red OR yellow).

If you are anywhere near Lincoln, I could have a look for you anyway.
