Kenwood KDC-MP443U reverting to defaults

I've installed a KDC-MP443U into a car that previously had a KDC-7080R. The wiring assembly was basically the same, the only thing was that the Red and Yellow power wires had been swapped around in my Mitsubishi. I swapped them back in line with the KDC-MP443U instructions.
The new unit keeps defaulting back to original settings every time the car is turned off, so I lose any settings I've made.
I assume its because its not getting constant battery power, but am loathe to switch the two wires back in case I blow the unit.
Any advice would be great.
Cheers
Steve

I don't think it will blow the unit if swapped...both of them should have power (~positive 12volts)...in the red wire power is supposed to cut off when you turn the ignition key to off...and the yellow wire is supposed to have power constantly(memory)

I am installing kenwood kdc-mp443u. it is flashing protect and i can't remove it. can you help please?


A speaker wire has a short-circuit, crossed, or touches the chassis of the vehicle it activates the protection mode function.
? Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center.
I have attached a link for you which is for a free Kenwood KDC-MP443U instruction manual download. Nice receiver by the way!
