Mike and John and others,
Thank you so much for the immediate info. Though due to the lack of time I had to deal with this, I had to just deal with a make-shift wiring setup for now.
The yellow wire, constant power, was stuck onto some wire that was not a constant.... makes me wonder what they were thinking?
For the time being, I wired the yellow wire with other wire to the battery terminal. I did not want to find a constant power wire with my limited time and resources. So I actually wired it throughout the car and into the trunk. Anyways, a real pain, but at least it will hold me off until I get the full info and the time to do this right.
Now my CD player keeps it's memory. I can come back to the car and the CD will leave off where it stopped, and I can eject the CD Player without the key in the ignition! Vast improvement.
But I am not done yet. I have two questions:
1. I want to find a constant power wire in the area where the stereo is, since the idiot who put the cd player in didn't do it right. I will then wire the yellow wire to that in lieu of having the wiring go throughout the whole car.
2. I want to find the power wire to the radio so that I can put the red wire from the CD player to it. This way, when I turn the radio on without the key in the ignition, I can operate the CD player also.
Thanks again all.
