You unit I am guessing is an in-dash unit that someone else installed. You can't legally watch a DVD in-dash while your vehicle is in motion, only when you are at a dead stop with the e-break set. As for it not holding memory, it sounds like your wiring needs to be checked and at worst your electrical system is having problems. I recommend that you take your car to a local car audio shop and have them test your wiring, you can ask them about the re-wire for DVD active while you are there.

Installing a dual cd player in a 2006 scion xb but dual cd player wont cut on unless both consistint power an ignition power are both together, making it impossible to hook up for memory.

The yellow wire needs to go to a constant source and the red wire should go to a switched (ignition) source. There should be a wire that is hot even with the key off.

When i turn my car on my cd player is full blast i cant find where to fix it

I want to know if you still can volume it down. If don't then your volume button sw for down was damaged.If still can, your cd player's memory is not functioning. Check the wiring of batt. memory back-up wire from the player, this must be connected to unswitch power supply. ( the power supply is always "ON")

Stereo problem

Sounds like the constant 12v supply is missing - blown fuse? or the wires are reversed. The constant is for memory functions, key-accessory for everything else.
