Re: memory of presets
You need to Check the Wiring Harness from the Stereo. There is a Constant Power Memory Wire (Should be Yellow or Orange). This needs to be Connected to the Cigarette Lighter Power Wire for Constant Power Memory. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

first of all you must be able to check out a few things like do you know how to set your clock for the kd-r805. if you can check to see if you set your clock and set your presets for radio station to be saved. set your clock and set all your station presets once done. Once you have done that turn off the car wait about 60 seconds then turn your car back on to power up the radio and see what happens to your clock and presets . if your clock and presets are not still saved this means that who ever did the radio install has the yellow memory wire connected to switch ignition and not constant battery wire from the factory harness. have someone fix it. If the clock and station presets are still save then it was that you don't know how to program the clock.. how to program your model radios clock .......
STEP 1 : TURN ON POWER TO RADIO
STEP 2 : PRESS AND HOLD MENU UNTIL THE MAIN MENU IS SHOW ON RADIO SCREEN PRESS AND TURN THE VOLUME KNOB TO MOVE THROUGH THE MENU (YOU MUST CANCEL THE DEMO FIRST TO BE ABLE TO PROGRAM THE CLOCK). STEP 3: TO SET THE CLOCK SELECT THE CLOCK IN THE MAIN MENU SETTING ROTATE THE VOLUME KNOB AND PRESS IT ONCE TO SELECT THE CLOCK SETTING.
STEP 4: ADJUST THE HOURS AND THEN PRESS THE VOLUME KNOB TO MOVE ON TO THE SECONDS . STEP 5 : THEN SELECT 12HR OR 24HR TO BE DISPLAYED STEP 6 : RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS MENU BY HITTING (BACK BUTTON) STEP :7 TO EXIT SETUP OR MENU HIT THE (MENU BUTTON) firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
when u get it to the radio station u like.... on ur cd player u should have buttons 1-6 or somethin close.... when ur at the station u want to be preset... pick a number 1-6 and hold that number in for about 5 seconds... it should notify u some how... it should preset itself when u do this
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 !
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.
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...
You have two "hot" wires going to the radio. One is the main B+ power and the other is for the "mem" function which keeps clock time and radio station presets in memory. Make sure that you have 12 volts to the memory wire (blown fuse?) If you do then you may have a problem that requires a trip to your local repair guy. Do you loose your preset stations when you turn off your car and leave the face in place (wait several minutes before turning car ignition back on)? If that is so, then you most likley don't have B+ to your memory wire. Good luck.
