Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
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.
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.
Radio Constant (keep alive memory) 12V+ Wire: Light Green/Purple wire

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.'

SOURCE: intermittent clock failure
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.

all fuses and what they run are posted on the panel. 3 different fuse boxes. 1 in the engine 1 on the passenger side of the console and 1 in the trunk

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).
