Two questions to narrow this down - one, is it an aftermarket stereo, or a factory one? Two, with the key out of the car, can the stereo be turned on?

If it's aftermarket and it powers on when the key is off, then it's likely two wires are reversed in the harness behind the deck - the constant 12v wire and the switched 12v wire. The constant one is the yellow one, which always supplies power to the deck, keeping power there for the preset memory and the tone settings. The ignition-switched one is so that when the key is turned off, the stereo shuts off (this is the red wire on the harness). If these were reversed, the stereo would always be able to be turned on, and power to the memory settings would be lost when the key is turned off.

How do you se a radio station and preset it on a 2011 elantra. We have preset stations but every time we stop the car the stations are not preset, we have to do it over again.


Did you put an aftermarket radio in the car? If so, it sounds like the yellow wire is not going to a constant power source. The yellow wire needs to go to a source that still has 12v when the key is turned off to retain memory for the clock and presets.

on most radios you can manually preset stations simply by seeking a station and pressing the the number (1 2 3 4 5 6 ) for a few seconds. this should lock that station into that preset position.

Stereo does not store adjusted audio settings and restarts after being turned off


Check to make sure the yellow from the stereo harness is connected to constant battery, connected to the battery, when the ignition switch is off, the yellow wire still has power. The yellow wire is for the memory for the stereo settings and radio station presets.

Pioneer premier deh-500ub presetting stations


Storing the strongest broadcast
frequencies
BSM (best stations memory) lets you automatically
store the six strongest broadcast frequencies.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select BSM in
the function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn BSM on.
The six strongest broadcast frequencies are
stored in the order of their signal strength.
# To cancel, press MULTI-CONTROL again.
Tuning in strong signals
Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those
radio stations with sufficiently strong signals
for good reception.
% Press LOCAL repeatedly to select the
desired setting.
FM: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2—LEVEL3—
LEVEL4
MW/LW: OFF—LEVEL1—LEVEL2
The LEVEL4 setting allows reception of only
the strongest stations, while lower settings let
you receive progressively weaker stations.

You can also perform this operation in the menu
that appears by using MULTI-CONTROL.
Selecting alternative frequencies
When the tuner cannot get a good reception,
the unit automatically searches for a different
station in the same network.
1 Use MULTI-CONTROL to select AF in the
function menu.
2 Press MULTI-CONTROL to turn AF on.
# To turn off, press MULTI-CONTROL again.

! Only RDS stations are tuned in during seek
tuning or BSM when AF is on.
! When you recall a preset station, the tuner
may update the preset station with a new frequency
from the station’s AF list. No preset
number appears on the display if the RDS
data for the station received differs from that
of the originally stored station.
! During AF search, sound may be temporarily
interrupted.
! AF can be turned on or off independently for
each FM band.
