Have you wired the ignition and permanent feeds around the correct way?

Also where did you take the illuminate feed from

Can you post some pics up of the looks behind the radio? Is it forgetting it’s settings when it’s turned off?

That doesnt look too good mate. Why are the orange and pink wires not connected to anything?

Silly question, but why have all those wires been cut?

You might be wise to ask the seller for a replacement harness. You shouldnt need to cut any wires.

Try swapping the red and yellow wires over - ie connect yellow to red, and red to yellow.
