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.

You may have to have your stereo "matched" to your car. Your local dealer can usually do this for you

Why do my settings reset in aftermarket stereo of my 92 mercury cougar


As well as the normal 12 volt line form the ignition switch, there is a 'permanently on' 12 volt lead, which keeps the clock and memories going even when the ignition is turned off. It sounds like the installer has missed connecting this one.

I recently bought a JVC KD-R311 car stereo, its a great stereo but my settings dont save, for instance i set the perfect sound adjusting bass/treb/mid/loudness and whenever i turn my car back on after...


You need to have the yellow wire from the stereo connected to constant battery/12 volts. That wire supplies power for the memory, if it is connected to ignition power, when you turn off the car, the power for the memory is off also.

Cd player stays on when you take the keys out of the ignition. how do i fix?


I assume you installed the CD player yourself?
There are 2 power connections to a typical CD player ...
* Battery (constant 12 volts to allow eject without key & keep memory etc.)
* Accessory (turns on radio when ignition is turned to acc or on)

The battery is typically a yellow wire and the accessory is typically a red wire. I'm assuming your installer has connected both directly to the battery cable (supplying power regardless of whether the car is on or not).

To fix the problem, you need to find the accessory cable in the car stereo group of wires.
I would usually use a tester to find which wires are 'live' when the accessory is turned on, then turn off accessory and re-test the live wires to see which one turns off when the key is off. This is your accessory wire and should be connected to the red cable of your car stereo.

My Pioneer DEH-P4700MP keep resetting when car switched off


Did you use a harness to connect the wires?
Could be the power line (red) is connect to the ACC (Accessory) orange line, so every time you switch off the vehicle the power to the stereo is interrupted.

Everytime i turn my car off and take the key out of the ignition all my stereo presets reset. all connections made are correct, however there is one wire which is left over. it is orange with white stripes...


Most stereos have two power connections. One is "constant" (aka always connected to +12V) and the other is switched on/off by the ignition. They may go be various names. The idea is that the constant +12V keeps the stereo from losing all of the settings while the switched power turns the stereo off when the key is not on "start" or "accessory". It sounds like the both connections may be made to the switched power on your car, causing it to go completely powerless when your car is off.

Are the presets reset after you turn the car off or only after you turn your car back on? If they only reset after turning the car back on, it's possible the battery and/or electrical system is having trouble keeping the system voltage up while the starter is trying to turn the engine.

The illumination signal is usually used to let the stereo know when you've turned your headlights on, so it can dim the display automatically. Should be completely separate from your issue.
