This means that the power lead you connected the red and yellow to is a switched live and each time you turn off the ignition the power goes off and therefore resets. to fix this problem you need to connect the yellow to a permanent 12v supply that stays live when you turn off the ignition.

SOURCE: Yellow Wire has no power
Your stock radio should have had a wire that does this. It may not be yellow so look up the wiring diagrams for your car. If you can't find it by doing that, then look up a diagram of your use box. Sometimes there's a diagram on the back of the fuse panel cover or somewhere around there that tells you what fuses are from what. You can then run a new wire if you have to.

this can be one of three things
1) the fuse on back of CD player could be blown
2) you need to push and hold the src/pwr button till unit powers on
as long as the yellow and red wire are attached to the positive battery wire you are good if the ground is to the battery ground and you try the first two steps i said and nothing happens........
3) ground the black wire from back of the CD player to any metal surface on the golf cart than try the first two steps again
it should power on if this is the case
hope i was able to help you

The Metra part number 70-1763 seems to be the correct one for your vehicle. Hope this helps.
