So..... Installed the new "radio" Kenwood as above supplied by Bassjunkies who were very helpful. The radio I had in before may not have been original spec but was a double din Kia one. The wires at the back had adaptors fitted which were suitable for my new toy s that saved a couple of quid. BUT when I got up one morning - battery dead! Next morning - Battery DEAD!! Apoplectic! So took he whole caboodle out and traced all the wires. TWO things - the battery and ignition feed wires had been transposed by the adaptor. Secondly, the ignition key removes at two positions. If it isn't turned all the way anti-clockwise , there is a possibility of the power remaining "on" in the background. Maybe....
Anyway.... having swopped red and yellow wires over the radio now operates properly as long as I remove the key after turning it all the way anti-clockwise. A very expensive fix - radio cost more than the car! Next: roof rack!
