    Unhappy New HeadUnit now flat battery?

    Fitted a sony head unit using autoleads stalk control adaptor and for the second time since fitting I have a flat battery after not using the car for a couple of days.
    Is the permanent power supply wired up wrong in the adaptor, fuse in wrong place in head unit, or fault in head unit? Any ideas?

    If I cut the permanent power supply will the unit still work except that I loose the time and radio stations every time I switch the engine off?

    Did you swap the red and yellow bullet connectors around on the sony wiring loom or does it have ISO connectors go straight into the back of them?

    Reason I say this is because the autoleads stalk control harness swaps the permanent live and ignition around so there's no need to do it

    Apart from that I have had a faulty sony headunit that flattened the battery on a clio with a connects 2 steering wheel and display adaptor
