One very common reason for this is due to the fact that the power was not connected to a continous source. i always use the cigarette lighter as a power source because the wire is always hot meaning current is always produce even when the car is off.

Att is not your bluetooth. Its the attenuator. Reset the radio an see if it clears. Sometimes the processor loses itself an needs to reboot.

Did you check both the red and yellow wires? You may have a bad connection elsewhere in the vehicle or even bad solder connections inside of the radio itself.

Radio loses power and doesn't save settings onv=ce car is turned off


Sounds to me as though it is wired up to the car's Power, Fuse setup wrong.. there is always a wire that "Keeps it alive" when car is turned Off, I suspect this isn't wired up to an always live feed?

Keeps losing power


The faceplate may have a bent pin, or is not fully clicking into place.

Before getting all worked up, try pressing the release button to remove the face plate and carefully inspecting the areas where they click into the main unit, small pieces of debris may be stuck in the clips, if this is not the case, carefully re-insert the face plate, making sure to have aligned the guides before pressing the face plate back into place. You should hear a nice confirming click when the face plate is in place.

Bent pin or contact, can easily be spotted by grabbing a magnifying glass and looking at the allignment of each pin, take extra care when straightening the pin if this is the case.

**Tip**
Most solutions can come from closer inspection ...
ie: with a magnifying glass.

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...
