    I am wiring my Kenwood CD player into the truck... I have a orange wire with a white stripe, and a yellow wire that I am not remembering where they hook up. I have the red to ACC, and the black to ground, but have no power to the player at all yet.
    I know one has to go to BATT for the clock/ memory, but...

    Anyone help me?

    Thanks
    Mike
