Astra problem with ignition and radio...

    I have Vauxhall Astra Envoy 1.6 1998 MK4 model. I decided to install
    Panasonic CQ-C1110AN and replace my old Blaupunkt CAR 300 radio. The
    Panasonic unit was functioning great while outside of car's panel.
    However, once I installed it, it just stopped working. Even thought
    wires were insulated and not touching I concluded that I must have done
    something wrong to burn the unit.

    After 3 months of that unit being silent I decided to give it another
    try. After I connected ignition wire with the permanent 12v, to my
    surprise, the radio started working. When I connected the ignition back
    with its ignition wire the radio remained dead. Hence, now I am using
    radio by having ignition and permanent 12v connected together. Finally
    my questions...

    1.) Will this solution drain my battery?

    2.) Will this create any problems to the car?

    Thanks for your help...
