Bought the VRCD500-SDU last summer and installed it. It worked fine until winter came around. Now, when the temp drops below freezing, the deck loses its settings and I have to reset everything (time, stations, bass, treble, beep). It is very frustrating and I am about ready to just throw it away and get something else.

Starting at the upper right (UR1) when looking at the rear of the unit: UR1 is 12v power; LR1 is ground; UR2 = Ignition power; LR2 = Panel light lead; UR3 = Unused; LR3 = Power Antenna lead; UR4 & LR4 = Right front speaker; UR5 & LR5 = Right rear speaker; UR6 & LR6 = Left rear speaker; UR7 & LR7 = Left front speaker; UR8 & LR8 = Unused.
If the car is a peugeot, renault, vw, audi, fiat. Chances are the lives just need to be swapped into the radio. Lives on a radio are red and yellow. on some makes of cars these are the opposite way round. so join yellow to red and red to yellow. this will solve the memory storage problem.
Ah.. Error13! Not again! Anyways this is a very common problem in all kinds of players that have USB support. Error 13 means device communication error usually due to power failure. Looks like some loose contact inside this player. Taking it apart and rewiring will fix the issue..
Are you using the speaker outputs? If you are using the rca pre-outs for an amplifier they are mislabeled. The subwoofer out is labeled as the front output and it is off when shipped. Connect to rca out labeled as the sub and you should get sound. The sub out can be turned on from the front panel by pressing and holding the "band/sub" button. The flashing light intended to mimic an alarm, it has no other purpose.
Let's try the easy ones first: 1. try to do a reset of the unit; 2. check that all the speaker wirings are: 2.1 connected properly following the wiring diagram; 2.2 not bare/exposed and touching any metal part/chassis; 3. verify that the MUTE is not enabled; 4. try all signal sources: AM/FM, CD, SD Card, USB, AUX; 5. verify that the SEL is set to SUB OFF; 6. replace the CR-2025 Lithium battery of the remote.
If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, you may need to: a. open the unit for a loose connection and/or other diagnosis; b. ask assistance from the manufacturer's Technical Service at 1-800-445-1797; c. return the unit for a replacement.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
check all your fuses and then take the face plate off and push the reset button. if that doesnt work just check the wire connections sometimes if the wires dont have enough contact they want work. i had that issue when i upgraded the speakers in my jeep the connections were not good enough.
