    I recently put in an aftermarket radio/cd/mp3 player in my '98 Impreza. I
    had to tap into a "hot" non switched wire for the memory presets. I found
    one in and around the headlight wiring under the dash. When I tapped into
    one of them and ran it to the radio I found out that my parking lights were
    on all the time. [even when off] So I disconnected it and picked another.
    My question is [because I wasn't paying attention when I started]: Does
    Subaru automatically have the running lights switch on with ignition? I get
    the dash and all of the running lights every time I fire it up now. Is this
    normal or do I need to find another hot wire?

    Original radio had cocnstant 12V wire too in the harness. You don't have
    to tap it off else where. Usually color is yellow.
