    Hi, the yellow wire of the head unit must be connected to a hot wire to maintain the presets when the key is off. there should be a hot wire in your car. go to modifiedlife.com and look up your car to see which wire color is the hot lead.

It sounds like you need to make sure the yellow wire is going to a constant power source. That is a source that is still hot with the key off.

Hi, the problem is likely in the wiring or possibly a burned fuse. There is a separate wire to the radio that is always hot and keeps the station and clock settings while the key is off. If you tell me the car model and year, I may be able to tell you which wire and fuse to check. Was this working originally or has it never worked?

The vehicle has a constant power source that needs to be connected to the radio. If a fuse has disconected the circuit then you will lose your "memory" for your radio. Look in the owners manual for the fuse box locations. Use a light to find the fuse that has disconnected the circuit.

Do not have manual. Need to program tuner channels and clock.


For clock turn key on and stereo off. Press and hold the function button for 3-5 seconds. the clock should appear with the hours flashing. Use the up-down buttons to set hours. Push the right button to set the minutes. Now turn on the stereo with the source (or power) button and your done!
Remember key on stereo off. hold function, the rest will become second nature once you've done it a few times.
Tuner pre-sets are super easy. Tune to the station you want and then just hold the # button (1-6) that you want that station on for about 3 seconds. The channel your on, (e.i 104.9) will flash a couple of times and then stop flashing. When it stops flashing it's in the memory. Tune your next channel and hold # 2,3,4,5,6, If 6 isn't enough push BAND and your on FM-2 with 6 more pre-sets, Push it again for FM-3 with 6 more presets. Push it a 3rd time for the AM band with 6 pre-sets and one more time to get back to FM-1.

Wont save pre-set stations


you need to make sure the red wire is connected to the battery via a fuse(normally inline or in the back of the unit) and the yellow is connected to ignition live(ignition needs to be on to give power). if the red wire is not permanantly live then the pre-program function will be reset every time you turn the ignition off.

How to program pre-sets on a Sony tuner ST-S100L


Tune in the correct station with the big +/- buttons. Then press "memory" then type in a number with the pad (it will do double digits, but normally a single digit is preferable) then press "enter"

Now typing in that number then pressing enter will take you to that station.

Good luck.
