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!!!

I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

Why do my settings reset in aftermarket stereo of my 92 mercury cougar


As well as the normal 12 volt line form the ignition switch, there is a 'permanently on' 12 volt lead, which keeps the clock and memories going even when the ignition is turned off. It sounds like the installer has missed connecting this one.

I recently bought a JVC KD-R311 car stereo, its a great stereo but my settings dont save, for instance i set the perfect sound adjusting bass/treb/mid/loudness and whenever i turn my car back on after...


You need to have the yellow wire from the stereo connected to constant battery/12 volts. That wire supplies power for the memory, if it is connected to ignition power, when you turn off the car, the power for the memory is off also.

Every time i turn my truck off the equilizer resets


If you radio doesnt save the stations either when you turn off the truck then it could be your wiring.. For example; Normally you have two power wires.. A red one(Accessory).. and a yellow one(Battery). The yellow one is like the memory.. and the red one powers the stereo when you turn the key. Try switching yours over.. See if that helps. Easily confused and you wouldnt really notice the difference.

Why wont my personal setting save for my Kenwood KDC-X493 car CD reciever? This is my 2nd aftermarket cd reciever and just like the 1st one I'm still having this problem.


Make sure you have the +12VDC and the Ignition leads hooked up properly.

If your head unit is pulling is power off of the IGN lead, it will reset every time you turn your car off.

Kenwood KDC-W312S wont keep the saved channels after car restart


Check the yellow wire connection on your wiring harness... This is the wire that provides continuous power even when the ignition is off. This is how the radio remembers presets/time and such. Every time you turn off the car, the radio "resets" because you dont have the yellow wire connected to an ALWAYS HOT wire.

If you cannot find a hot wire, then you can run a wire from the yellow on the back of your radio directly to the positive terminal on your battery. Dont worry, it doesnt draw enough power to run your battery down.

Most cars have a cigarette lighter or power port somewhere that is always hot. You could always run the yellow wire off of one of these.

Just find a way to get the yellow wire on a hot wire and your stereo will remember the presets.
