    Used truck new to me. Radio/blue tooth worked fine for 4 months. One engine start and I had nothing to the unit. No sign of power at all. Hit the reset and the unit came alive, however now it will not stay connected to any station or the bluetooth. The connect/disconnect is totaly random in duration, from a few seconds to 20+ miles. I don't use the Pandora or the USB port.

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.

Pioneer radio wont retain station memory


clock probably doesn't stay either.....sounds likke the wiring may be incorrect...there are 2 battery + leads on these radios...One is yellow...which should be hooked up to a hot lead that is hot all the time even with the key off( you could just run a wire to the positive side of the battery)..thios lead is the memory lead that keeps stations, settings, and the clock....then there is the red lead that is supposed to be hooked up to a switched positive lead...such as the accessory lead fron the ignition switch....it's a good bet that the red and yellow leads are hooked together and that they are hooked to a switched ignition lead right now...all you have to do is disconnect the yellow lead from where is hooked now and hook it to a hot all the time then your memory, and stations should be retained

JVC KD-R312 CD player keeps resetting itself whenever the ignition is turned off. The radio stations are ok, but mybass, treble, loudness etc always resets itself. Is annoying because i ahve to go through...


You are losing the permenant 12VDC on the Radio. This is the thick yellow wire from the radio loom, it has to be connected all the time to 12VDC.

Every time i turn my truck off the equilizer resets


If you radio doesnt save the stations either when you turn off the truck then it could be your wiring.. For example; Normally you have two power wires.. A red one(Accessory).. and a yellow one(Battery). The yellow one is like the memory.. and the red one powers the stereo when you turn the key. Try switching yours over.. See if that helps. Easily confused and you wouldnt really notice the difference.

I just put in a radio in my 88' truck and i have to reprogram my stations every time i start my truck,why is it not holding memory?


Your red memory wire is not hooked up or you switched the red and yellow ignition wire around and your radio stays powered up when you turn off the ignition.

My car radio has to be reset every time the car turns off


i don't know what kind of car that you have but on that radio there should be two power wires one is red and the other is yellow,the red wire connects to the wire in the car that will only have power when the key is turned to the on position,the yellow wire connects to the wire in the car that always has power with the key off.........

Stored radio stations and time erase when car is turned off


The radio was installed incorrectlly. Make sure the red wire from the radio is connected to a switched 12 volt source(has voltage when car is on, none when it's off) The yellow wire to a constant 12 volt(hot at all times) this wire mantains the radio memory and must always have power.

DehP6700 mp restet everytime keys is turned on.


first red is ignition or acc (turns off and on with the key) yellow is constant power (always hot keeps memory) orange is illumination (lights up radio) if vehicle doesnt have a seperate illumination wire connect it to the ignition wire. now process of elimination your ground is correct because it worked with all wires to acc your acc works because u had all them connected to it and it worked your problem is in your yellow or constant/memory i suggest u test it again take piece of wire any old thing long enough will do and run the wire directly from the battery under the hood and just run it outside the car through the window and connect it directly to the yellow wire make sure u have a good connection at the battery on the positive side if u have test light or volt meter test the wire before connecting it to the radio if it works then u know there is a problem with the wire from the vehicle (fuse wrong wire bad wire ) if it doesnt work make sure ground is connected tight and that paint is cleaned of the surface where ground connects and that the yellow wire to the radio is tight in the back of the radio.
