How do I set the clock and preset stations.

I received this stereo from my friend and I can not figure out how to set the clock or the preset stations. I tried to download a manual, however I do not want to pay $15 to answer these two questions. Please help.

I also had some problems to figure out how to set the time, but here is the sollution i came up with:


1. Press "Clock/Timer" until a clock and "on" starts to flash in the display.

2. Turn the "volume/caleido jog" to choose which function you want to set (alarm on/alarm off/time).

3. Press "clock/timer" again.

4. Change time with the volume wheel.

5. Press "clock/timer" when you are finished.

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 a 98 ford winstar I'm installing a pioneer

You'll need to check that you have the yellow wire connected to constant battery, power from battery, not thru the ignition switch. The yellow wire is the power wire for the clock and radio presets.

Lost memory

Car stereos typically have an "ignition" and a "battery" wire. The ignition wire is connected to your ignition switch, and only supplies power to the stereo when the car is turned on. The battery wire is connected directly to the battery, and always supplies electricity to the stereo -- even when the car is off. This maintains presets, clock, and other settings in your stereo.

It sounds like your battery wire was either not hooked up, or has come loose. On your stereo, a Pioneer, this wire is yellow. Locate the yellow wire on the wiring harness on the back of your stereo. This wire should be connected directly to your battery (or another source that gets constant +12VDC).

Fitted clarion db148r car sterreo(pluged in at rear) when i take ignition key out stereo switches off and all preset radio stations are lost thanks george

The reason you are loosing all of your presets, clock & eq settings is because the 12volt constant is not hooked up properly. The red wire in the harness needs to be hooked up to 12 volt consant. The yellow wire needs to be hooked up to a ignition source. By taking these two steps, you should have normal operation and preset retention.

How do I preset the stations for an Alpine TDA-7547 car Stereo. This is an older stereo and setting the stations is not intuitive.

Select the station you want. Then hold down one of the 6 preset buttons for a couple seconds. When the station ID flashes, release the button and it should be saved.

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.
