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

CDX-GT4301P sony car radio loses station/settings memory intermittently.


At the back of the head unit, there are usually two power connections to the car battery live. One is via the ignition, and the other is (usually) a fused connection that connects directly to a relay or fuse that has constant power, even when the car is switched off. This constant power allows your head unit to hold its memory. If the loss of memory is intermittent, it could be a loose cable or corrosion on the fuse.

Chevy stock speakers are 8 ohm. You should change out the stock speakers. Or at least dissconnect the back speakers and see if cd player still overloads and shuts off.

There should be a fuse on the back of the radio. It needs to be checked.

Got a new Kenwood KDC-128 car radio recently, fitted it but the radio presets would not stay when the ignition was turned off. Then it stopped working altogether and I noticed the 10amp fuse at the back...


you need to hook the yellow wire off the back of the radio up straight to the battery this keeps memory power to the head unit then wire the wires in color coded sequence red to red black to black so on and so forth if this doesnt fix it you might want to think about replacing head unit

Wiring problems?


http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/kdcmp238.pdf

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.

Either you blew the memory fuse or didn't connect the radio to the proper wire. Check fuses inside and under the hood.

The memory wire to the radio needs 12v all the time. If it's not connected or no power at the lead the radio will reset every time you turn off the car.

Memory loss


you need to remove the radio and swap the red wire for the yellow wire and vice versa, they have bullet connectors to allow you to do this, basically the permanent live and the ignition live are the wrong way round.
