what you need to do is check to see if your radio is connected right ......
in the installation of any radio in a car or truck there is a yellow wire that is constant power that save memory and the clock without this wire getting 12volts all the time you will not be able to save station to the radio if you set them everytime you turn off your car or truck they will go back to factory preset .... now once you find out if the constant power wire has power and you can say that is not the issue i would call panasonic and find out a service center near you and have your radio fixed ...
You can get wiring diagrams on line, do a search using the players full name. Is your morris positive on negative earth? you will have to swap it if it is positive as the player is negative earth only (usually dynamo is +ve and alternators are-ve ) I have changed lots over when dynamos were common, turn the battery round and pull the 2 wires off the dynamo take a wire from the +ve battery terminal and "wipe it across the 2 terminals on the dynamo, this will make it -ve earth too, re connect the dynamo and off you go
if the panasonic radio is a factory model, check with a GOOD car audio shop. they can get you the factory wiring harness to plug in, along with the diagram. if the panasonic is a replacement, like a jensen or kenwood, check out CSK Auto or AutoZone for a factory harness adapter. it makes life so much easier...
You can use the accessory wire. The one that loses 12v positive when the key is turned off and has 12v positive when the key is on. If you can't find that you can use a switch. Find a constant, wire run it to a switch, then to the amp. If doing it that way, you just have to remember to turn the switch off when you shut the car off.
Either your radio has some issues (which is possible), or your memory wire (the yellow one) is not connected properly. You need to make sure that the yellow wire has power 24/7 and the red only with the key on. That said, there are some cadilacs that dont retain that constant power for more than 10 or 15 min after the car is turned off. If you have a caddy. hit me back and I'll tell you where to pull power from.
