i need help on a cd player problem..... the cd player is hooked up right, and its not a foactory dub one, so it doesnt need the code, but it will only power up at certain points on the ignition, and once the car is turned on, the cd player will go off. does anyone have any idea as to what could be causing this? i just got the gti yesterday, and already something is going wrong...but oh well, it still runs good and its fun as hell to drive. but any help would be GREATLY aprreciated

check the grounds in your ignition, all the way to the coil. if it isn't grounded right it will switch to "switched power" like in the first position in the key.
most stereos will not run if they dont have 10 volts because they put a safety in to not short the battery if you left your keys in for a long time w/o the motor running
