    My 1998 Camry has the same issue. Just started recently. All the memory get lost when the car is turned off. This is the factory installed radio.

    did anyone figure out why the radio memory is not being held? I have the same problem with our factory radio. I don't think it is the battery because the clock still holds it's memory. The problem is not all the time so I would not think it is a blown fuse. Anyone HELP. Thanks

    Is this a factory radio or an aftermarket radio?

There are two fuses for the radio. There is one under the hood and another behind the change drawer on the drivers side of the car. Are both of them intact? It sounds like the constant 12volt might not be working.

It is a factory unit.

Power on, clock works, CD works, NO SOUND from the radio

Check the speaker wires maybe they have worked loose. And speakers themselves as they may blown. Do you have an amp if so check its fuse. Also check for inoperative interior lights, lighter, and horn. One of these circuits will power the radio's memory circuit. Some radio models will appear to work normally but have no sound if the memory fuse is blown. The clue is the clock will reset to 12:00 each time you turn on the ignition switch.

My radio/ 6 disc CD player.

Both. Check the power line that is supposed to power the clock and memory circuits when you turn off the ignition.

And your player has lost the ability of the laser to focus on the disc - hence the error message.

The radio won't work. It is currently on cd mode. When I put the radio on it starts playing the same cd that has been in for a week now. All the buttons dont work. I can't change the mode.

Sound as if there is an internal problem with the system. Will the CD eject when commanded? If not, try to remove it manually with a pair of tweezers or something of the sort to see if it will come back on line. You can also disconnect the battery for a few minutes to erase the units memory ( you may require a code if it has a theft feature ) to see if it will start working again. If nothing gets better, suspect an internal unit issue

Loses memory

you have the memory lead on the radio wired up to a switched wire, this wire needs constant power, like straight to the battery or to a constant power source in your fusebox.

Check the fuse for the radio, the one for the keep alive memory is blown or the radio is defective.

Where is the button on the radio to turn on the cd player which is in the trunk

Let's see, the 98 still had a cassette player in the head unit correct?
There should be a button toward the top, far right, that says Tape/CD.
If the CD player has been disconnected, it may be necessary to 'reboot' the system to get the head unit to sync up with the CD player. Disconnecting the battery is the simplest way, but you will have to reset the anti-theft code in the radio and reprogram various memories (seats, etc) if you disconnect the battery.

Information senor panel, clock and radio reset itself, and/or the radio will not work at all

Could be a number of things.

  • Battery discharged or getting there.
  • Loose ground behind the radio unit itself

Jeeps do weird things when the battery is low. If your battery is 4-5 years old or more, its pretty much time to replace it, even if your engine starts normally.

Check the ground wire behind the radio unit. If its loose, it can cause the radio to shut off randomly and not work at certain times, also can cause the radio to lose memory.

How do I change the battery in my 2002 Jetta TDI without losing all electronic settings?

Losing all electronic settings like what? You probably won't lose them if you don't take an hour replacing a battery. The only problem I've had with replacing batteries is that the clock resets on most cars, don't be lazy, set it again.

Wire hook up for radio

Your going to have to run a constant power source to your unit to maintain the memory. I would suggest running it to the fuse box located on the Drivers side. Hope this helps
