the radio is actually right above your gas pedal, and the hot wire plugs in the bottom The actual radio guts in models 88 - 94 was above the gas pedal and the part in the dash was similar to a wired remote with display....the radio in a 95 and newer is all in the dash. You need to remove the trim panel (simply pops off but watch your headlight switch) there will be two tabs on the radio and you push these down and pull them out. The "hot" wire is on the back of the radio It is the outside wire on the biggest portion of the plug. What was orriginally three plugs in 88 was changed to one plug. Answer I just changed the radio in my 98. The constant flow hotwire is the yellow wire in the harness. The red wire is the interrupted flow wire which turns on and off with the key.

It runs from the hot wire on the back of the alternator to the red battery box.

The radio was wired wrong. Sounds like the hot wire for the radio was connected to the hot wire for the headlight switch.
