They screwed up. the gentex 40 I installed has a red for switched power (mirror) a yellow for constant power, but I connected it together with the red to 12v and a black to ground. Brown wire is for map light - not used. I added a add-a-fuse to the fuse panel below the glove box. All devices must be fused to prevent fires. Red wire must be switched to prevent it from draining the battery. Take it back and have them fix it and show you where the fuse is.
