You haven't provided enough detail to work with.... but
In general terms. Check the wires going into the rear of the Pioneer. Use a 12v test light or voltmeter. When you turn the key off, one of these wires will lose 12 volts but there should be another wire supplying power when the key is off. Thats how it holds it's settings. One wire from Ign Key switch & one from 12v fuse box with power on all the time. So, check the fuse box if thats easier, as wire may have come off or a blown fuse.

How do I cancel the demo on my radio so it never comes back on?

Go into settings and turn demo mode off. If it resets to demo mode every time you turn the car on then you'll have to get it looked at, it's either the radio or your car battery.

Radio Resets when I PTT

1) You were right to change to new batteries. Yet, the problem you describe is the same problem that would present itself if you had bad or poorly charged batteries. Check your contacts where the batteries touch inside the radio for damage or film/debris. Clean with a pencil eraser.
2) Is it possibly you have changed a setting, or have your radios programmed to a repeater (duplex only) frequency? Reprogram (if possible) your radios to a very basic setting with the code set to zero (off), and all special features turned off. Then using a basic radio-to-radio frequency test the radios again

3) If reprogramming is not possible due to the radio shutting itself down, then you have a battery or charging problem. Be certain the radio is turned off when on the charger and the battery is clean and inserted the right direction. Try charging both radios overnight. Observe your charger, does it seem like it is operating properly?

Basically, problems are either the radio, the battery, or the charger. By process of elimination you should be able to determine which one is the culprit.

Best regards.

Radio resets when car is turned off

There is a yellow wire in the harness coming out of the head unit, this should be connected to a constant power. This circut maintains power to the head unit for the clock and memory.
The red wire should be connected to a source that is turned on and off with the key switch.

Electrical Problem

This sounds like a bad Earthing point off the ignition, fuse boards or battery, check ALL connections to the battery and earthing connections througout the vehicle, a long process, OR, you can take it to a vehicle electrician and pay them, the easiest solution is the latter.
