How do I set the radio station buttons?

Generally tune the radio to the desired station and then choose the button and hold it pressed. The sound will momentarily disappear and then return. When it returns the button will be tuned to that station.

Your radio might be different but all the digital radios I have encountered use that process.

How to program memory for radio stations

Scan until you find a station you like and remember the frequency, carry on until you find another station any station, put in the first frequency and quickly press and hold the button that you want to save it too until the unit beeps. Carry on for the rest of the buttons. Generally with the FM there are two sets of presets, one for each time you press the FM button. The display will usually show FM1 and FM2.

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.

If you have 2 wires that are the same color and one of them has a black stripe down it, those are speaker wires. I.E. if you have 2 greens , one with a black stripe, that goes to one speaker. You'll have to play with them to know which is which. I have moved the radio settings to front right speaker, then kept changing the wires from the car out until the car's front right is on, take note of the speakers that come on in the car while you are trying to find the right one so when you are ready to hook it up you know where to go. Yellow goes to constant power, even when the car is off, and key out, thats why you don't have to reset the clock every time you start it up. Red generally goes to power when the key is in the on position. Blue is for remote operation, like turning an amp on or off, so it doesn't run while the radio isn't on. I don't recall any others off hand that are critical, but do consider this, if you have a newer vehicle with factory radio, it might need a conversion module in order for it to work. Generally you can tell if the radio has a volume adjustment for speed, e.g- it gets louder as you go faster and softer when you come to a stop, you will need one. You could hard wire it in without the module but the radio plays a role in the horn and chime operation, if you dont get the module you will pay for it, me. Also, if you get it all wired in and nothing is going on, plug in the antenna, that serves as the series ground, hope this helped.

Memory loss since changing fuse!!!

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
