My switched live for the radio suddenly stopped working and I have no idea what to look at as tracing the wire is not easy? I cant find a blown fuse or realy that covers this and I am not sure if this issue is causing my battery to drain?

thanks

Im guessing your ignition live you picked up is the same colour as the stereo one ?

That sounds like a sensible permanent solution to me! Can you let em know a wire colour and best location to splice into it.

thanks

When the supply on the brown/red disappears and the fuse is ok suspect the ignition switch.
