sounds like its got the permanent live but not the ignition switched live to me, check where the two powers are on the original loom an see that the adapter takes them to where the stereo instructions say they shud go. vw dont put them in the right positions for aftermarket stereos but obv thats wot the halfords wire is meant to do. hth Very Happy
