    Question Radio Looses Presets!

    Has anybody had this problem? I don't know if I hit some combination of buttons by accident, but it's happened a few times recently. Suddenly the stock radio will loose all the presets. I'm getting tired of re-programming them.

    This used to happen to a Sony pull-out HU that I had in my old car occasionally when I removed it for too long in cold weather - I think the backup battery would loose charge.

    My radio lost presets today on a 50 degree day and there was no problem starting the car, so it shouldn't be a problem with the car battery.

    Thats wierd, the only thing I could think of is the wireharness in the back of it may have came out (not all the way) but barely touching the terminals so sometimes it loses the connection ??... Basically if it loses connection to the yellow wire (battery, not ignition), it will not remember the settings. You may want to pull it out and check... There are plenty of tutorials to pull the stereo out.. takes about 5 minutes with a philips screwdriver and some TLC.
