Question about JVC KD-S6060 CD Player

Resets when car ignition is turned on.

Since I have had the player, every time I turn on the ignition, the presets reset meaning I have to retune all of the radio stations again. The garage that sold me the car fitted the CD player for me. I drive a Vauxhall Astra. Is this likely to be one the cars where the yellow and red wires need to be crossed over? I am worried that if I disconnect the player I will have to enter the code (which I don't have).

You will need the code unfortunately, you can patch in a pp3 9volt battery but it is akward.
i suggest you go back to the garage and let them have a go swapping the wires round

I have just fitted a pioneer DEH-1320MP to my golf but the radio will not hold the presets when turned off. So every time you strart car you need to retune the resets on the radio. Is this something to do...

Yes, someone forgot to hook up the lead that says Batt + to a constant battery + voltage , this will keep the presets on the radio when the key is off, unless you disconnect the battery.

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.

Check the yellow wire connection on your wiring harness... This is the wire that provides continuous power even when the ignition is off. This is how the radio remembers presets/time and such. Every time you turn off the car, the radio "resets" because you dont have the yellow wire connected to an ALWAYS HOT wire.

If you cannot find a hot wire, then you can run a wire from the yellow on the back of your radio directly to the positive terminal on your battery. Dont worry, it doesnt draw enough power to run your battery down.

Most cars have a cigarette lighter or power port somewhere that is always hot. You could always run the yellow wire off of one of these.

Just find a way to get the yellow wire on a hot wire and your stereo will remember the presets.

Everytime i take turn the car on or off the radio resets to defau

If you are losing the memory (clock and presets) on the unit, you need to make sure that the yellow wire (normally) has 12 volts AL THE TIME and the red (acc) is switched on and off with the key. The battery wire (memory consant 2 volts) is the one that retains memory.

Kenwood kdc 3011 rests its self every time i turn the car off

This means that the power lead you connected the red and yellow to is a switched live and each time you turn off the ignition the power goes off and therefore resets. to fix this problem you need to connect the yellow to a permanent 12v supply that stays live when you turn off the ignition.
