either you wired something wrong or else the acc and live are reversed. on the HU side of things the red and yellow cables should be the 2 main power ones. U should be able to disconnect these half way down the wire. Try connecting red to yellow and yellow to red. I had that problem where u press the power button and power would come on for a sec the go off. is this whats happening to you? If its not that try a different earth/grounding point for the HU. PM me if ur confused, some people are getting annoyed with ur noob posts(not me!)

Wasn't this asked last week?

By rewire I take it you mean, wire all new speakers with new cabling and connectors. Which is pretty straight forward to do as you'd run all the wires to a new ISO connector, picking up a live and earth from the Battery and ignition from the old connector.

If you were keeping the OEM speakers then there is a lead available on ebay, as mentioned before, that bypasses the amp (if you have an SE or Sport model). If you have a standard S model then Autoleads do an ISO convertor.
