On aftermarket stereos the red is normally the permanet live and the yellow is ignition, if you have swopped the yellow and red wires around and it is still the same I have only two other suggestions.
The permenant live is connected to both the yellow and red wires or when you are testing the wiring you are turning of the ignition but NOT removing the key the latter matters as the radio is still provided with an ignition live even in the off position until the door is opened or the key is removed.

Yeah I think so as the stereo will only come on when you push the power button but nothing happens with the key, if that makes sence?
you need to check the supplies with your multimeter to confirm whether the problem could be between the fuse box and radio connector.
Check the brown and red wire with ignition on then off with key out.
