    Power Reset.. What to do?

    I have a 06 WRX/TR I did a couple wiring hacks, and everything went fine with them.. like making it unlock with just one click of the key fob, parking lights, and a couple other small things which worked great - no loose wires, nothing came un-connected. (I checked)

    So I went to install my stereo myself and because it was so new at the time, they didn't have any wiring harnesses for the radio. So being a new radio installer I simply sliced the plastic cap off the wires where it's supposed to hook into the stock radio. I was left with all the wires that were expertly color-changed by Fuji Heavy Industries not to match with any other wiring diagrams...

    Anyways, when I had the radio in, everything but one detail worked fine. This is where I have my problem...

    Everytime I shut my car off no power gets to the system which means I can't use my keyless entry, the clock resets, the trip resets, and I can't keep anything in my radio's memory. I no longer have a radio or speakers in the car, and I replaced the empty hole with another DIN pocket.

    Basically, I want to know what wires, if any I can hook together to make it so the system doesn't reset everytime I turn off the car. I've tried every combination I can think of and I KNOW it's just something with the radio wires, I just don't know the right combination. Figured someone on here would have wired their own stereo and had the same problem.

    Blew the main 20V Clock Fuse located in the Engine Bay fuse box. Only place I didn't check because I figured the drivers side ones would go out and act as a barrier to the ones that were in the bay.

    But I had to redo some wiring because I had everything connected to the 12V constant hoping it would work, so everything stayed on when I turned the car off. Now it works fine..
