CD player blowing fuse

Hey all.
I am trying to swap over my cd player from my old car to my new R plate scenic. I can get it to work so it come on when I turn the car on. But of course, when I turn it off, all my stations presets etc get erased.
I did manage to get it connected to the battery, but It blew the cars 15amp fuse in the fuse box. Any help/advise guys please so i can keep it all hooked up safely

Aftermarket head units normally need a constant 12V feed and a switched feed that is live with the ignition. I am guessing that you have the switched feed sorted as your head unit goes on and off with the ignition, so all you need to do now is find the constant feed.

Strange thing is that if you have a factory fit head unit that doesn't have both feeds, it is normally the switched feed that is missing.

Does your new head unit have ISO connectors? What was the model of the head unit that you took out of the Scenic? With this info, it should be possible to find the info you need on t'interweb.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.

Just swap the yellow and red wires if it's an aftermarket unit.They are the switched and the permanent live feeds and some ISO connectors use them in the opposite ways to others.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
