Hello userpete,

It's possible that the 12V constant wire is either not connected properly or there's no voltage present when the vehicle is turned off. You'll have to check your installation manual for the unit, I can't look it up without a make and model number. But usually, the 12V constant wire is "yellow". If you're using an aftermarket wiring harness, make sure it's connecting to the correct wire in the vehicle wire bundle, and that there's 12V present when the ignition is turned off.

If this checks out OK, the unit itself is probably defective.

Hope this helps.

It has lost battery power. It has 2 power sources. The battery is constant, no fuse. This is for the radio memory. The ignition is fused, it is the one that turns the radio on. You have to pull the radio plug and check for battery power. If it is there, you have an internal radio problem.

Wont save stations


There are 2 battery feeds to the radio.

The Main one via the Ignition Switch . This is used to switch the radio ON

The other is a permanently connected battery feed that retains the radio memory features...ie..the code and the radio station settings.

It looks as though it is this permanent battery feed that is missing.

Check the fuses and the connectors/wiring at the rear of the radio

if it isn't saving stations you need to make sure the yellow wire is going to a constant power source. without knowing what brand or make of radio you have, it is hard to say how to turn off the demo mode.

Swap the battery and accessory lead positions in the ISO header plug. This is easily done by pressing the pins out from the plug side using a fine bladed screwdriver.

_MANY_ cars have these 2 wired the "wrong" way in their radio socket. It's far easier to move the radio's wires than the cars.

Once you've done this your bluetooth will probably sort itself out too.

Hey there! I had the same problem just the other day and removed the radio from the car over night.

Turns out the radio may have got too cold or a little damp! Whereabouts is your car stored overnight? Could be the reason why!

Either that or one of the buttons could be stuck. Hope this helps
