2005 Mustang GT radio defaults

Every time I start my engine the radio defaults to 590 AM volume goes to 6 bars and the clock goes to 12:00. I have checked the fuse #20 in the kick panel fuse block and it is OK, that is the constant power. Does anyone know how this can be fixed.

    Why would the constant power wire go thru the ignition sw. It has 12v all the time that's what keeps the settings. Hot in run or acc.goes thru the ign.sw. Do you agree?

    No constant power doesn't go through the ignition switch, that is switched "switched power" for the radio amplifier and tuner circuit's, keep alive needs power all the time key on or off, it is an unswitched battery circuit. Does that make sense?

You are loosing power to the keep alive memory circuit of the radio. I think you may have a defective ignition starter switch. Also there are two hot wires to the radio, one powers the radio, one holds memory and is called the Keep Alive Memory constant power wire. Here is the wiring colors, pull the radio and check the memory power supply wire.

SOURCE: The radio and cigarette lighter have both lost

Many (= not all) fuse boxes have a chart molded into the case and the fuses can nearly always inspected visually to see if the fuse element is intact. The one that services those items is probably marked as 'accessories.'

I had to bring my 2004 Aveo to my dealer to have the clock replaced, TWICE!!! Apparently it was a fault with the clock not the fuses. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: The clock seems to have no power. The radio and

Check your cigarette lighter/aux power port it may be on the same circuit as the clock. If the fuse is OK then it is likely an internal issue with the clock itself. This is a very common problem with several clocks. I offer a repair service that has a lifetime guarantee and is several hundred dollars cheaper than buying a new clock (that will also eventually fail).

Ford mustang gt 2005 dtc codes


B1318 are related to low battery voltage .
B1202 is fuel sender circuit open.
P0463 is fuel level sensor circuit, (high input.)
If your gauge appears to be working o.k. all I would do for now is double check my voltage at battery with engine off & running, to make sure all is good there, erase codes & start fresh. The cheap way to erase is to remove neg (-) cable form battery for about 5 min., or more & then reconnect. You eill lose your memory on radio stations & have to re-set them though, otherwise have someone hook-up scan tool to erase them. Is vehicle starting & running o.k. at this time?
