i just bought an 84 cutlass and the guy that had it before got lazy and wired the radio right to the parking lights. Whenever i wanna lasten to the radio i have to turn the lights on. I was wondering where the best place to wire it is. I cant find the power wire to the radio.

Get yourself a test light, and then check under the dash for a line that's got power in it , with the key on.Then add a fuse in that pos.+ line,and that should do it. poking through the wires is half the work.

theres usually an open acc. terminal at the fusebox thats usualy the best place so you dont tap something elses power
