Memory loss since changing fuse!!!

My fuse for my radio recently blew and i changed it. The power is now back on to the radio but every time the engine is switched off the memory on the radio is lost, the clock resets and all the programmed channels are lost. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help. It turned out that i had put the fuse in the wrong position on the fusebox and it was only in one of the holes. I better stick to sports. Thanks again bud.

The unit will have 2 fuses, or at least a second power supply that is generally connected to continuous power, best bet is straight from the +ve batt terminal. If this power supply has been disconnected or has a blown fuse, then you will also loose memory functions from you radio.

  1. Check first under the bonnet for a memory backup fuse holder that has generally less than 1 amp fuse,
  2. no luck, then about the rear of your fuse box for a fuse holder,
  3. or worst, behind the unit up under the dash. The wire from the back of the stereo on Sonys is generally the RED one for memory backup
restoring this power supply to your stereo will then allow for all your presets to be retained in memory

Good luck, happy to talk to you more about the problem, a "FixYa" rating will help my profile

Aftermarket stereo won t power on


you blew the fuse
check the fuses to radio, can be 2 or more.
1 in fuse box.
2 in radio, (some have 1 , and others have 2 or 3 more in side radio)
anything is possible with aftermarket, radios, 10,000 models, vast years. Ive repaired many. (ET)

the radio has a red wire, usually for power,
most radios have 3 power wires,
1 for rad ( this one dead) use a volt meter here.12v key on.
1 for dial
2 for memory

Every time i start the car it resets the clock


The clock and radio memory use a different power source than the radio - - that source is not controlled by the key switch. I would check the fuses first to see if you blew one that is hot all the time.

Turned car on yesterday, radio would not turn on, bought car used and did not receive an owner's manual.


As to the fuse issue,swap with another fuse of same color/amp rating.Swap fuses one at a time until radio works,usualy a red 15 amp fuse but manufacturers do have a habit of changing things with little or no notice.Unsure wether code would be affected as it should have a constant power source from battery to maintain radios memory.Unless youve disconnected battery fuse should bring it back to life.Good luck and hope not to be too tardy with an answer next time LoL!
