Check the backup power source (usually a yellow wire) on the stereo wiring harness. (If it is an after market stereo.)

Check the fuse box(s) for an open fuse it's probably marked on the fuse box or in the owners manual. (both factory and after market radios)

SOURCE: My car stereo wont save

You probably forgot to plug a wire that needs power all the time, look in your INSTALLATION MANUAL to locate that wire and plug it to a continuous source of power (even when the car is switched off)...

Hope this helped!!!

HOW DO I CHANGE THE TIME


    • 1

      Refer to the section of your owner's manual that addresses the car radio. Each car radio is different in the way you set the clock. If you've installed a car radio other than the one that was manufactured with the car, consult the manual for that radio.

    • 2

      Know that if this is the first time you're setting the clock or are setting the clock after installing a new battery in your car, you have to set the hour and the minute of time. Often, you set the clock with either the radio station up or down arrows. On some car stereos, you use the CD track selector buttons for setting the clock.

    • 3

      Using either the CD or radio selector buttons, set the hour first. Push the button labeled "Set" or "Clock" and then set the minute with the same procedure. When setting the minute, some manufacturers allow you to move through in increments of five by pressing and holding the button. If the time of day were 2:49 p.m., for example, you would push the button 13 times, including nine times to display :45, then four additional times incremented by one to display :49. Push the "Set" button or the "Clock" button.

      Determine whether your car stereo is equipped to automatically change when Daylight Saving Time begins and ends. If it hasn't changed at 2 a.m. of the time-changing date, you know it isn't equipped for this. In that case, set the hour either forward or backward and the appropriate time of the year.

      If you can't figure out how to set the clock on your car stereo, wait until noon on any given day, disconnect your car battery and reconnect it.

How do i connect my i phone 3gs to my clarion cz509a via bluetooth


I have a Clarion Cz509A stereo which did connect via blue tooth to my I phone 3 for over 12 months. However after a car battery was changed they no longer pair together. I have reset the phone, turned it on and off. Checked the pass key is correct with the stereo. Checked hot wire is connected as it keeps time and radio settings when battery is disconnected for over an hour. Tried the head set reset button, but still no detection. What ya reckon

Bmw 318i se auto clock reset problem?


a little more information would be nice but im going to make a guess
you installed a new deck in the car, now every time you turn the car off the clock resets?
if thats correct.. the deck will have 2 power inputs, one that turns the radio off when it does not have a power signal, the other that should have a constant voltage to maintain the stereo memory, now if I'm correct you have either the 2 wired opposite to how they should be or both wired to something like the ignition wire, and it is acting like the battery has been removed every time you turn off the car, which means you need to check your stereo wiring.
if this is incorrect please leave some more info telling everyone when the clock is automatically reseting.

Radio tuning


There is no permanent positive feed to your stereo, You'll need to take one off the constant positive off your ignition barrel or off the battery ... It'll need to be fused too just in case. You'll have to refer to the stereo manual on which cable (Or sometimes written on the cables) is the permanent positive feed.

Stereo stations wont stay set


If you have a yellow wire that is the memery wire. It needs to be hooked to a constant hot. If you do not have one you need to get a new plug for the back.

Everytime i turn my car off and take the key out of the ignition all my stereo presets reset. all connections made are correct, however there is one wire which is left over. it is orange with white stripes...


Most stereos have two power connections. One is "constant" (aka always connected to +12V) and the other is switched on/off by the ignition. They may go be various names. The idea is that the constant +12V keeps the stereo from losing all of the settings while the switched power turns the stereo off when the key is not on "start" or "accessory". It sounds like the both connections may be made to the switched power on your car, causing it to go completely powerless when your car is off.

Are the presets reset after you turn the car off or only after you turn your car back on? If they only reset after turning the car back on, it's possible the battery and/or electrical system is having trouble keeping the system voltage up while the starter is trying to turn the engine.

The illumination signal is usually used to let the stereo know when you've turned your headlights on, so it can dim the display automatically. Should be completely separate from your issue.
