So I ordered a wiring harness/mounting kit/etc. on eBay. I don't give a sh!t about the chimes so it's just the wires not that little box thing. However, they sent me a red wire with it, which from my understand is the ignition wire. I was told by a local audio shop and Best Buy that I have to use a volt meter to tell what fuse that goes into and then run the wire through the dash into the car and connect it to the after market deck. But my friend thinks I can just skip all that and connect the deck directly to the battery. This is really pissing me off because after connecting all the wires and taping them off, the radio will turn on and play CDs and stuff but you won't hear anything. Also, none of my gauges worked while driving so we had to just pull the radio out when driving. Someone, in laymen's terms, please tell me what the hell to do!?
