You may not have hooked up the extra wire for the memory back up on the radio... it will stay live when you shut off the radio.

Hello clarky909,

On your Alero, the 12V constant wire is ORANGE and should connect to the YELLOW wire coming from the DEH-2300 wiring harness. 12V switched on your Alero is YELLOW and should be connected to RED coming from the DEH-2300.

Hope this helps.

I installed a pioneer Deh P49001B car stereo in a 1997 dodge stratus with wiring adapter from best buy. everything works great until you switch on the lights. all power to stereo is gone.

to solve the problem with it turning off when u turn your lights on is that on the back side of your radio is a spot that says max and something else keep your ground wires conected just how they are but get u a a 14 to 12 gage wire a cut u about 6 inches and use one end and connect to your other ground wires (with Connecters ) and the other end and with a closed end connecter with the little hole in the center i cant place wat its called but any ways put it where that max hole thing is where there is a screw there and that should fix that problem cause i had that happen before .. but make sure your antentia is pluged iin to ok .. good luck Paul,

I don't know how to change the time on the clock on my pioneer deh 2300 car stereo

With the power OFF, press and hold the FUNC button until date and time are displayed, use the UP/DN/RT/LT toggle to change values and positions, once time and date are set, turn unit ON.
