Question about Car Audio Receivers

1 Answer

Radio presets on my toyota camry 1998 will not hold any more.

When I turn the car off, if I had the radio on, it isn't on when I start the car next time and my station presets won't stay programmed. Is there a battery that is in the radio that keeps the presets alive? I would have thought it got power from the car battery. This seems to be a common problem. I have seen a lot of people with the same problem on line. I just have not seen a solution.

    Sorry for delay in answering, fuses are not the problem since occasionally it will work fine. Radio and everything else works fine, as long as the car is on, I can reset the radio stations and the new pre-sets will work fine as long as I don't turn the car off. When I turn the car off and then back on, the new presets are gone and the radio does not come back on when I restart the car unless I manually turn it back on. Are we sure there is not a battery in the radio that should be keeping the memory set?

    I am having the same problem with my 1998 Tercel. I noticed today that after having the 4-ways on for 10 minutes, the car was also difficult to start. Does this indicate a fuse or battery problem? Or either?

Be sure when setting presets you hold the button down for at least 3 seconds to set the channel, if you are doing this correctly, you may have a blown back up fuse under the hood. there are 2 fuses for the radio one is marked radio and is inside the fuse pannel on the inside of the car the other is for memory back up and located in fuse box under hood may be marked B/U just check them all to be sure!

Won't remember settings


Your memory wire(12volt constant) and accessory (12volt switched) are in opposite positions. I have seen this happen with aftermarket wiring harnesses for european vehicles (mercedes,audi and VW). Switch the wires.

Make sure the yellow wire is connected to a source that still has voltage when the key is turned off. The yellow wire controls the memory of the deck.

Can't set the radio stations


When you find a frequency that you
want to store in memory, press one of pre-
set tuning buttons 1through 6 and hold until the
preset number stops flashing.
The number you have pressed will flash in the
preset number indicator and then remain lit.
The selected radio station frequency has been
stored in memory.
The next time you press the same preset tun-
ing button the radio station frequency is re-
called from memory.

I have to re-tune every time I start the car,dont have manual to preset radio stations ? Should it not stay on automaticly


You have not wired the radio properly. Your constant power (yellow wire) needs to be fed from a voltage source that measures 12VDC no matter the position of the key for clock and memory purposes.

To set the stations simply press and hold the preset until it beeps.

Jvc car cd/radio


The radio was improperly installed; there are two 12V leads, one services the radio when on, the other, only the circuitry for the clock and presets.
Eventually, this shouldn't be needed if the manufacturers ever think about using a little bit of flash memory for the presets and a coin cell for the clock.

You didn't give any model number so researching the manual is impossible.
If you can find the model number, look for a user's (or installation) guide on line to find the wiring info.

Program stations


Quoting from page 6 of the manual:

"Select the radio band and tune in a desired radio station you wish to store in the preset memory.
Press and hold, for at least 2 seconds, any one of the preset buttons (1 through 6) that you want to store the station on. The selected station is stored. The display shows the band, preset number and station frequency memorized. A total of 18 stations can be stored in the preset memory (6 stations for each band; FM1, FM2 and AM). If you store a station in a preset memory which already has a station, the current station will be cleared and replaced with the new station."
