The radio has to be wired to get power in ACC. If that's not working right after a new radio installation, it may not be wired correctly, or an inline fuse may have blown during the install process. Does everything else work as normal when the key is in the ACC position? If so, who installed the radio? Take it back and have them test/fix it.

If you did the job yourself, you'll have to check the wiring to find the wire that is hot in ACC only. It's easy to find by testing all the wires for power when the key is in ACC.
