I just installed a JVC radio on my 03 golf, got the wiring harness and all hooked up, but I noticed before I did that both the 12v battery and ignition wires have a constant 12v regardless of if the key is in or out. Plus the harness only connects to one of the two, and I'm not sure which one as both wires are red with a white stripe. This lead to the radio staying on when the key is out - is this normal or did someone mess with the wiring and this is going to drain my battery? Will manually turning off the radio head stop this?

When the control unit is on the speakers are also powered so I know that its still on when I take the keys out and ill be able to remember to shut it off before I leave
