You have a blown fuse for the memory for the radio & the clock.

    Then look for a loose fuse in the fusebox. In the 80's, when the cars were shipped to the dealers, there was a fuse that we had to install at Pre-Delivery Service. The cars would get dead batteries travelling over on the boats, and Nissan added this fuse to keep the batteries from going dead. The clocks and the radio memories drain the battery. I still think that this is the problem, there really is nothing else in that circuit, unless you have changed the radio from the factory unit.

The time can be set with the ignition on or off.

Boss 648UA loses programmed radio stations when I start car.


Nearly every auto stereo has a two power wires. One is switched on and off with the ignition so it will shut off automatically when leaving the car and a second that has power all the time. This second power wire is used to keep time on the clock and to maintain your chosen station memory presets.

If you have wired both power wires to the switched power source, the clock and station memories will be reset each time the car is shut off. You will need to identify the wire that the radio that needs to have powered constantly and connect it to an "always on" 12 volt source (such as the (+) post of the battery).

Additionally, a car battery that is failing can cause the same problem with station memories. Look for indicators such as hard starting or interior lights that dim significantly or go out nearly completely when cranking the engine. This is a visual indicator of an excessive amount of current the battery is trying to supply - often due to a low voltage on the battery. This can be a result of a poor connection at the battery itself, a cable between the battery, starter, fuse box, etc. or a dead cell in the battery. Have the battery checked and replace if needed.

Once your radio power wiring, battery & cable connections and battery health have been verified or corrected - the problem should go away.

Good luck!

I have a 1996 nissan maxima that i put a new radio in now every time i turn my car off the memory on the radio and the clock rest how do i fix it?


There are normally two wires that provide power to the radio. One is hot only when the car's ignition is in the the RUN or ACCESSORY position. The other is connected to a constant hot voltage in order to preserve clock and station presets. Most likely you have connected the always hot wire to a switched power source. You need to rewire that wire to a constant hot power source to correct the issue.

Clock resets at startup


Does your radio stations also reset at start-up or sometimes do they reset? If you battery is weak and it takes a lot of power to start your vehicle it could reset your clock and sometimes clear your radio stations as well.

The clock in my 2000 RX300 keeps resetting to 1 00 am every time I restart the car


I had similar problem in 2001 rx300. Every morning the clock
will reset to 1:00. Sometime this will happen when I started the engine. The Lexus dealership replaced the car battery. According to the mechanic, The Rx300 are very current sensitive system and even though The existing battery was 3 years old the cold weather made the current go below the allowed limit. That makes the clock reset to 1:00. After replacing the Car battery, the problem when away

Try the following:

Note the radio anti-theft code & station settings;
BE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO RESET THE ALARM;
Be willing to reset the clock;
clear the MIL code, then:
remove the negative battery cable for one minute during which time, to clear any capacitor stored elctricity, then re-attach the battery cable and reset the alarm, radio settings and clock.

If that does not solve the problem, replace the fuel injector control module.
