It's God conveniently telling you to stop smoking... lmao...

Check your wires to see if you got power... if one is hot and one is a ground then that should solve your problem... don't see why they would have gotten that messed up for a headunit install... but hey it happens to the best of us.

i went out to test it...got nothing...found out the wires under there were un hooked and just hanging...the ground is still good. i hooked it up into a battery terminal on the fuse block. it has constant power all the time now. will this drain my battery if nothing is in my cigarette lighter?? or is that how theyre supposed to be??

ya thats how its supposed to be, dont forget about the cars that have constant power to them, you can put a charger in it even with the key off. Same thing!
