Re: will not hold any memory when radio is turned off
There are two power wires for car radios mostly Red & Yellow check to make sure 1 wire is powered all the time in most cases its the yellow as well check the fuses from the radio on the red and yellow wire also make sure the red wire is only powered when ignition is on but it sounds like that wire is ok good luck....

At times a radio can have voltage at the yellow (12v memory wire) and no voltage at the red (12v ignition wire) which turns the radio on and off. If this is the case you may have a blown fuse or if it is a data based system the factory radio turns on with data and not voltage. If you have a data system in your vehicle there will be no 12 ignition wire present. You will then have to use a data/can-bus interface (recommended) or run a wire to and ignition source (this method does not retain any factory data features or safety chimes)
Hi the ignition wire needs constant power thats how it saves your memory. You will need a test light to find the wire that is constant power. With the key off touch the light tester to the power wires from the radio harness the one that turns the light on with the key off is the ignition wire and is to be connected to the ignition wire from the radio.

the problem is your ignition and your permanant battery live wires are the wrong way round all you have to do is remove the stereo and you will usually see a red wire plug into another red wire and a yellow wire into another yellow wire all you have to do is change the red to the yellow and the yellow to the red and it will hold the memories fine hope that helps !
