There should be one with constant power ( live all the time and connects to the yellow wire on aftermarket head unit) and one with switched power ( off and on with the key and connects to the red wire on the aftermarket head unit)

Did you use a volt meter to check? The red one should show constant 12V and make sure you got the right ground wire too hooked up too. On mine the brown is GND.

you might want to check to make sure you have the remote wire (blue) tied in, also check your ground (black) on the car and be sure its actually grounded, and if that still doesnt work connect the power (red) and the accessory (yellow) by splicing the accessory into the power wire! good luck
