Question about Car Audio & Video
At the back of the head unit, there are usually two power connections to the car battery live. One is via the ignition, and the other is (usually) a fused connection that connects directly to a relay or fuse that has constant power, even when the car is switched off. This constant power allows your head unit to hold its memory. If the loss of memory is intermittent, it could be a loose cable or corrosion on the fuse.

SOURCE: Memory loss
you need to remove the radio and swap the red wire for the yellow wire and vice versa, they have bullet connectors to allow you to do this, basically the permanent live and the ignition live are the wrong way round.

you need to rewire it,it seem like you connect the YELLOW (memory wire)to the ignition line.
You will need to connect it to constant pwr line and the RED to the IGNITION line
