Re: loosing all ive saved when i turn the engine off
There are two 12+ volt feeds that should be connected to your unit.
1. Constant feed = 12+ volts that supplies power to the units memory all the time.This wire can be connected from the original radio connector wiring so long as it supplies constant 12+ volts, or be pulled from the battery, with an in-line fuse.
2. Switched feed = 12+ volts that only supplies power when the ignition switch is turned on,This wire can also be connected from the original radio connector wiring so long as it is a switched feed, also with an in-line fuse.
During installation ether these wires were swapped or the constant feed (memory wire) was not connected.

Peggy, Is the radio actually switching off or do you just loose the radio station. If radio is shutting off, there must be a bad wire/ plug connection, loose plug, or maybe bad ground.
If loosing station, have Arial/antenna connections checked, maybe upgrade to better antenna. Some stations just do not send out a strong signal which can also cause loss of station.
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.
if the unit only looses radio station presets then there is a defect with the unit. if the unit looses all its memory, (clock, stations, settings) then there is an issues with your aux power. basically you have the main power connect properly so it turns on the unit while the cars is on but the aux power keeps those settings.
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
Have you checked the cables? It appears that you have connected the wire for ignition directly to the power in and the direct +12v to the ignition cable. When turning ignition off, the memory is then emptied.
Just bought the same unit but the instruction manual was double dutch. After messing around for a while I managed to do it like this. Whe the unit is set to DAB, Press the Sel+/TU+ or the Sel-/TU- button on the unit (not the remote) until the DAB station displays and then press the Select CH+ button again on the unit. Wait a few seconds while the word "tuning" is displayed and that station should now play. To save the station as a preset do this. When the station is playing use the remote and press the PRG/MEM button once. Then press the number for which preset you want that station to be. The station will be saved. EG to save Radio 1 as Preset station 1, play Radio 1, Press PRG/MEM, then press number 1. After that whenever you press number 1 on the remote Radio 1 will play. Do the same with any other station you wish to save. To save station 10 press the 0/10 button on the remote. To save station 11 press 10+ then 1, 12 is 10+ the 2 etc. Good luck Dopeyemma
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.
