F150 RADIO SHUTS OFF WHEN I TURN ON MARKER/HEADLI

1994 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
1994 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 56343 miles

Installed a Dual XDM6350 radio using wire harnesses. If I hook up the radio illumination wire (solid orange) to constant power the radio works if lights are off. If I hook the wire to switched power, it ONLY works when lights are on, tried every combination I can think of but can't seem to get constant power no matter what. Also, when orange is hooked to the constant, I have no dash lights. Any suggestions?

Hi Page13,

Thank you for the donation.

What is your original radio specs, Base or Premium ( with amplifier)?
From both tyes of radio wiring schematics, I am not able to find any solid Orange wire.

Do you have the wiring schematics for the new radio that you have installed?
