When car turned off&on, settings & radio stations stored are lost

Hi There,

I've fitted the above cd player which works fine apart from when i turn the car off and back on again it loses the stored radio stations and settings.

I believe there is some kind of remote wire I need to plug in from the car to the head unit wiring.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it but there is currently a loose wire which could be the remote wire. The wire was attached to the wiring of the head unit i removed. The loose wire also has the radio plug in thing attached from a booster receiver which was fitted some time ago...

If this is the remote wire which part would I connect this to? Do I need to connect it to another wire? if so which one?

If it isn't, what do I do?

Thanks!!!

There should be a red wire and yellow wire with connectors in the middle. swap the wires over, so red plugs into yellow, and vice versa.

Radio stations wont store once key is taken out


if the unit only looses radio station presets then there is a defect with the unit. if the unit looses all its memory, (clock, stations, settings) then there is an issues with your aux power. basically you have the main power connect properly so it turns on the unit while the cars is on but the aux power keeps those settings.

Sony cdx-gt100 cd player radio stations are not storing,i have stored them all but as soon as you turn the ignition key,the stereo has lost all stored stations.thanks for any help


You will need to check the yellow wire of the stereo. This wire must have +12 volts even with the key off. Be sure it has a good connection.

I can t figure out how to connect my radio up like i got the cd player to work just fine but the radio doesn t work


Press the source button to select fm, press and hold BTM button until Btm flashes. This will automatically store stations for you. Page 8 in this users guide covers same as well as manually setting stations. You do have the antena connected?

Stop kenwood KDC-mp239 loosing radio settings with ignition off


You have two power leads bringing battery power into the radio. One is switched off when the ignition is off and the other power lead is always on. That second one is the one you may have wired wrong. You need to check that one out to make sure it stays on when the key is turned off. Good luck.

Stored settings and auto eject


Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
