There are generally 2 power wires on a stereo. One is tied into something that only comes on when the ignition is turned on and the other must be live at all times to retain memory.

My nx501 works when my truck is on accessory then I go to start my truck and it shuts down the stereo

It's normal for the stereo to shut down during the engine start - the starter motor draws a lot of power and the voltage drops. If you can't restart the stereo after that it's either a bad wiring (the stereo was attached to the wrong power like during install) or, more likely, the contact key switch is failing and you'll have to replace it.

I just put a new stereo in my truck but wont keep memory?

you didn hook up the hot at all times wire, or memory wire, its usually yellow on aftermarket stereos and goes to the batt. a way to find that wire is to pull the stereo, leave everything off, and check wires for voltage. once you find one with volts when key is off, just hook the wire up

1995 cadillac deville vacuum hose diagram

I have a 1995 Cadillac Deville. The car runs great. When Its cold. As soon as it gets hot, if you turn it off it won't start. And when it does start is has no power and spits and sputters to the point where you have to lay on the gas to keep it running. My husband and I have done everything imaginable to this car and it will run great for a day or two then we are right back to square one. Do you have any idea what the problem could be? Please help/

not sure, maybe a wire in the harness is exposed causing an arc, maybe the stereo is faulty. I would check the wires first.

I wana hook up a hyper guass system on my fuel line

Really not sure why you want to mess with this 'thingy'? It sounds like you may be trying to install a gas saver or 'claim-to fame' power booster! None of these work or the manufacture would have put it on! Messing with fuel line is a great chance of burning your car! If I am on the wrong track, please let me know! Frankster016
