Is the stereo meant to stay on when the ignition is off??? I am used to stereos coming on and off with the key but the one in my 145 is wired independantly so it needs switched on and off.

The standard wiring is that it stays on regardless of ignition switch position. If you want it to go off with the ignition you can take a switched feed from the back of the clock (or cigarette lighter if your one is switched - only the earlier cars had an ignition switched lighter socket).

if you swap the red with the yellow wire if you are not use the standard radio ! as the yellow is the switch wire but some times the phs1 don't have the yellow in the back of the radio loom

Well, from the top of my head I can tell you thats its one of the inside wires our of the 4.

I THINK, as you look from the top down on to it, from the left its the 3rd wire in. I used to re-wire these alot.

Take a feed from the ignition-switched positive wire on the back of the clock. See pages 8 & 9 in this workshop manual section.

Wiring diagrams for the car radio are HERE and details of the connections on the back of the Sony head unit are HERE

have you got a block connector on the back of the radio or signal wires
and do you have a yellow coming from the loom off the car to ?
if you get a cheap earth tester you can check the permanent live and the switch live when the car and radio switch on

Its the standard Sony unit and its all sorted. I had a tester - yellow was the lights on live the other 2 reds were permanent live. One for memory one for power. I have wired a spur from the clock to the permanent on the stereo and now it comes on and goes off with the ignition Happy days!

Thanks to GialloEvo for the link to this thread. smile.gif

How the heck do I get the radio out?

Some special trick?

Assuming you have the original Sony stereo, you need to use two stereo release keys similar to the following that you slip into the slots down either side of the stereo head unit. The head unit will then just pull out...

If you don't have any then it is easy enough to improvise with some thin strips of metal instead smile.gif

It's the same story in FIAT Coupé land with the power wiring for the stereo.

A classic ballsup, from the 'my mates brother rewired it' school of electrical engineering- is to discover that you only have stereo power when the sidelights/ headlights are on.

This is caused by a classic mismatch of yellow and orange instead of red, and people thinking that they've found an ignition switched redundant positive line in the loom, which is in fact the night-illumination feed!
