Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
So i replaced the stock radio with aftermarket radio, but when i have all the wires properly put together the radio won't turn on, yet as soon as i swap the red and yellow wires the radio turns on but won't keep the tuner presets or clock, what am i doing wrong...
You have a power wire going to your on off switch you should also have a power going to a memory wire to keep your stations and clock intact.

Did the clock stop working immediately after the radio install? If so then it sounds like a fuse may have blown. If not then it is most likely a clock issue. I have 4runner clock removal instructions at my website: www.autoclockrepair.com
Drop me a note if you have any questions!

there is a short somewhere in the acc circuit, probably not in the radio\clock, check anything else on the circuit like interier lights,

Check your instrument panel fuses. #18 AC it controls your clock, antenna, radio, and power rear view mirror. If the fuse is OK then it is most likely an internal failure in the clock. I offer an affordable repair service and have the removal instructions. Check out

SOURCE: how to connect aftermarket radio
Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.
