Hi, my problem is that each time I turn off the ignition I lose all my radio settings (i.e. the station pre-sets). My Sony is a CDX-L400X. I was wondering if there is an internal battery (like a button...


Hi, the problem is likely in the wiring or possibly a burned fuse. There is a separate wire to the radio that is always hot and keeps the station and clock settings while the key is off. If you tell me the car model and year, I may be able to tell you which wire and fuse to check. Was this working originally or has it never worked?

Does not stay set.


your deck has two power sources a main for when your car is turned on so the radio kicks on and a remote which is always on keeping stations and clock powered passively so whoever installed it did it improperly or do to road wear and tear it was jossled lose and can simply tightened after pulling the deck out

Radio and clock memory goes when engine is switched off


The radio was installed incorrectly or the memory wire has somehow been disconnected. The memory wire is the one which is connected to a permanent 12v feed even when the ignition is turned off.

The permanent feed is usually red, the memory feed is usually yellow (and a poor/lazy fitter may have piggy-backed it onto the red wire). Just connect the yellow to a fused permanent 12v source:either direct to the battery/starter motor terminal, or you can find others attached to the hazard flashers and often to the brake light switch on the pedal assembly.

Do yourself a big favour when doing the job and avoid clip on Scotchlok wiring connectors: they're a constant source of faults and no substitute for proper crimp-on bullet/spade connectors.
