has anyone rewired or installed it wrong? its picking up voltage from someplace, are other lights glowing also? pull one of the radio fuse,s or the other, one memory and one radio power up.

I removed the fuse so the battery won't run down. I reinstall it when I drive and want to hear the radio. then take it out again when I park. I saw somewhere online that it might have something to do with a spring in the ignition switch. Have you heard of that?
