Question about stereo installation

Hey everyone, this is my first post here and I just got into the jeep community.
I now have a 1993 YJ and wanted to put in a new stereo (the owner before me had his stolen and now there is not one). It looks like when it was stolen they cut just about every wire behind it.
I managed to find the power and 4 speakers and thought that was it. Now every time my Jeep shuts off my Radio presets, Clock, and EQ all reset too.

Looks like there is two power wires, one being a constant that keeps power to it. I cant find the second one, The one I am using is RED and it is now connected to the two power wires coming out of my radio.

Anyone know what color that wire is? Or what I can do since I can't find it? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

YES, found it!!! whoever had it before me must have a had a problem with it before. The "yellow wire" that i was searching for was cut and changed to a black one, not a color I would have expected for constant power....very nice, now my EQ, Stations, and Clock wont go away, man that was annoying. thanks for the help
