There is a yellow wire (on most head units) that must have constant power. This means it must be powered at all times, even when the keys is off or out of the ignition. It is located on the back of the head unit and can be hooked to a fused constant 12v power supply such as clock, some cig. lighters, etc.

This is simple the memory wire (yellow) is connect incorrectly. It needs 12 volt constant or continously. meaning 12 volts even when the car is off.

Sony CDX-GT44U doesn't start. After switching off


car running or not? if it works with the car off then I would check the alternator, your car will require more power from your already low battery causing your radio to not play. If it won't start either way check all of the wiring going to it including your speakers. Could be loose or shorted wires. Could also be the switch on the unit. only way to know is to take it apart and test the switch. If all else fails then have it looked at.

I get sound with radio but not with cd or USB, even though the display says they are working (cdx-gt590ui)


use the blue/white wire to turn your amplifier on. the blue wire is antenna remote turn on, the blue/white is amplifier remote turn on.
when the radio is not in tuner mode the blue wire turns off.

Car speakers cut out (no sound) when volume turned up


I would check the crossovers.
If you are turning it up too loud, then the amp may be clipping (into distortion) and this is then setting the protection circuits off in the crossovers.
