I had the same problem. It kept getting worse until I convinced my husband that I just needed a new battery. New battery = problem solved.

Your radio has what is called the keep alive memory, check the fuse, either that fuse is defective or a wire has a defective connection at the back of the radio. Fuse location will be in your owners manual under ROAD SIDE EMERGENCIES.

My 1995 Maxima has problems starting at times, but not alway, sometimes it starts up like new. Also, the radio display has gone out, however, sometimes it will come on out of the blue. Lately, my radio...


It sounds like your ECU might be having some troubles. Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 an hour, then reconnect it and start it up. Let it run for maybe 10 minutes without driving to let the ECU reset. Then take the vehicle on a short drive to let the ECU gain info on the fuel and air conditions.

Hi there! error code P2097 means that DOWN STREAM FUEL SYSTEM 1/2 RICH
if your car is a dodge neon 2.0L second gen probably you need to check this:

O2 sensor 1
exhaust leak before 02 sensor 1
O2 sensor circuir maybe the harnes can be check if the wires of the O2 sensor is not burn sometimes the wires is touching the exhaust manifold and then start to burn and wires start to fail or harnes

O2 return signal
fuel contamination

try this:

reset your ecu or pcm (its the same) how? ok take a 10mm wrench and disconnect the battery all night and tomorrow in the morning connect your battery start your car and then drive if the check ligth comes on again then shure you have a problem there! so start to check if your O2 sensor is ok, or maybe you have to change the fuel filter (you have to change every 60,000km)

check too if you can see any exhaust leak!

hope this help !

The clock resets itself to 12:00 when restarting the 2005 Buick Rendevous. Sometimes if you are really careful how you turn the ignition, the time will stay as set, buy not very often.


maybe you should check your battery condition. the voltage should be 12.3-12.8V. many times the voltage is not enough to cranck the engine and supply all the other devices. Try to turn on the radio and then crank the engine. if the radio stay on and the clock reset then the problem is inside the clocks mechanism. hope helped.

My 1996 nissan maxima bose system resets its self


you need to pull the radio out and verify that you have 12 volts all the time at the Pink/Blue wire in the radio connector plug, this is the keep alive memory, without this constant 12 volts the radio will reset every time the key is turned off. I assume you have checked the fuses. If the wire is ok and has 12 volts present then the radio is defective and will need to be sent out for repair..

2005 Malibu MAXX car stereo dead, rear radio too.


Please check your owners manual for the location of the 10 amp fuse for the radio. On some models you have to reset the security feature on the radio/CD player for it to work.

The info below has been stated to work on a no go radio. I have not confirmed this procedure.

Remove the lower fuse box cover, with the power off, removed the 10 Amp fuse for the "Radio." the fuse may be good. Fuses are diagrammed in the owner's manual. With the fuse removed, start the car, turn the car off, replace the fuse and turn the key to "ACC" to see if the radio was "Reset."

Would the alarm cause the radio to malfunction? If your Anti Theft lock was activated check your owners manual under radio and check for a 4 number password. Sometimes it is taped to the upper part of the glove box. If you do not have the CODE you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership or a repair center. They use your vehicles vin number get the code.

Have you the right code?

If you have, just keep your radio on so long when it says "code" then enter the right code.

I have same problem but I can't wait so long time. So I took the radio out and connect it to 12V power supply.
Turn the radio on and slept one night. At morning I enter to the Radio the right code =) and radio start working again.

I thing that code system of radios is quite stupid.
