Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

SOURCE: stations on radio will not set
A car radio needs two sources of power. A little bit of 12 volt all the time and more power when you want to hear the music. Also known as battery(all the time) and ignition (when the "power" is on). It might be a bad connection on battery power or it wasn't connected right. Battery power is needed to keep the presets and the clock setting.

The radio either does not have the yellow power wire connected(constant 12v) or the wire is connected to a switched source and when the key is turned off the radio has no backup power. You will need to pull the radio out and verify the yellow wire is not connected to switched voltage and connected to constant power. It is also possible that they have the red and yellow wires mixed up. Remember yellow constant power and red is switched power(with ignition key). And also disconnect your negative battery cable when working on the electrical system of your vehicle...you may short something out and damage your vehicle's electrical system or head unit.
