There is a permanent live wire, usually yellow that holds the memory. Connect it via a 2A fuse to the permanent power lead or your battery.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

if it was a shop that installed it, they unhooked the battery for sure, the next time you start it, turn the key to the on position, and wait for the lights in the instrument cluster to go off, about 45 seconds or so, then start it

Truck does not longer unlocks door when the key is turned to the off position and removed


Auto lock is the only option from the factory on the F-150. Auto unlock would be from an aftermarket RKE or remote start / alarm.

do you have an aftermarket RKE / RMST / Alarm installed ?

Problem with aftermarket stereo wireing


seriously the answer is very easy the yellow wire from the deck is constant power weather the truck is on or off it should always be hot. The red is the ignition wire which simply turns the deck on when the ignition key is turned on and the black is ground besides the actual speaker wires these are the only wires that need to be connected. if they are properly connect there is a good chance that there is a short somewhere

I am trying to install an aftermarket stereo in my 1991 ford f-150 without a harness adapter and need to know what to do with the battery constant wire


You need to use a test light/probe to find a 12v supply of power that is not affected by the key if wiring into the original loom.A wire from the positive terminal of the battery to the yellow constant power wire(memory)is another way to do it.It will not drain your battery as it is a very low consumer of power.Good luck

Will not drop down from fast idle when first started


It sounds like an automatic choke system. Let it warm up for 5 minutes and then give it gas up to 2000rpm and release.
