Question about Sony CDX-L480X CD Player
When tuning the fm radio station for the first time - i found the selected station and held my finger on the number until it beeps and says "mem" just to the left of the name of station on the display. i thought that would be it but unfortunately, when i leave my car for a period of time, go back and attach the face again, it has lost all the stations i had saved. please help.
I agree. In laymans terms switch te red and yellow wires around on the harness for your stereo and you should be good to go

Take the Memory wire (yellow) and connect it to your power wire that goes to your battery, and then take your main B+ wire and connect it to yourpower wire from the ignition.... This should definately solve your problem!!

You have two "hot" wires going to the radio. One is the main B+ power and the other is for the "mem" function which keeps clock time and radio station presets in memory. Make sure that you have 12 volts to the memory wire (blown fuse?) If you do then you may have a problem that requires a trip to your local repair guy. Do you loose your preset stations when you turn off your car and leave the face in place (wait several minutes before turning car ignition back on)? If that is so, then you most likley don't have B+ to your memory wire. Good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.

receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
