96 nissan xe pickup>no anything first key turns. then stereo channels need resetting as after dead battery.next turn starts vehicle. Ignition switch? any advice appreciated


The radio has a permanent power wire to keep it's station memory. You are losing power on this for some reason. Possibly starter motor is shorting the battery. Possibly one of the big earth straps is corroded.

Fix keep alive memory 1991 olds


If your asking about the radio channels and radio clock, there is a wire that is always hot that has to be connected to the radio's always alive wire. If it is not hooked to the wire that is always hot, (like hooked to an ignition wire) then it will not be hot and every time the ignition is turned off, you will lose the clock time and channels memory. If you have a test light, check the wires at the radio (with the key off) and see which one is hot. If none are hot, then you have a blown fuse or wire broken.

Voltage Drop


Radio should have 2 power leads, one should be switched, (hooked to key switch) and one should be hooked direct to battery so you don't lose memory when you shut the car off. Someone hooked them both to the key switch.

Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on


The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE DISCONNECTING THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE BUT.THATS NO GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOSE RADIO CODE I WOULD TRY TO USE A BACK UP MEMORY SAVER YOU PLUG IN THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER BUT NO GOOD IF CAR GOING TO BE DOWN LONG.TIME BECAUSE THE MEMORY SAVER BATTERY WILL GET WEAK YOURE IN TROUBLE.BMW WARNS IF YOU DISCONNECT BATTERY CABLES YOU WOULD LOSE HEATING COOLING CLIMATE CONTROL.YOU ALSO WILL LOSE FUNCTION TO WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND WASHER , CENTRAL LOCKING AND THEFT SYSTEM CONTROL.
