Radio Problem (Wired and NO POWER)

I bought a new HU for my E36, I wired it up matching all wires as usual with any car. I plugged in the harness and attached a ground and I am getting nothing. The HU wont even turn on?

If you have a standard wiring adapter, check for 2 wires. The Red wire should have 12 volts only when the key is ON. The yellow wire (memory) should have 12 volts all the time.

You can check the black wire to ensure there is continuity to ground.
