Sorry, I still don't see this.  Would not the starter be a parallel
connection?  If the Battery groud lead was disconnected how would the
starter current go through the radio?  Assuming the radio power leads
run directly to the battery (Both + and - leads).

I believe I am missing something but just don't see it yet, sorry. 
Working on cars is one thing I attempt to avoid at all costs.
