REMOVE RADIO and follow advise in your previous question...It's all related. The WHITE wire with the VIOLET stripe must not be connected to ANYTHING or you will have compound electrical problems.
i had this issue before... make sure u are using the ground for the radio wire provided by the car's harness... pretty much just make sure that the ground wire coming off the new radio is not hooked up to the chassis or any piece of metal, it has to go directly to the factory harness... if u dont know which one it is, find a wiring diagram for your radio.
