I had an old G Body Pontiac GP that had this same issue (same car pretty much)... It wound up being that the harness didn't have a constant 12v power wire when I tested my harness even though the wire was there for it... The stock radio had no need for memory so it was all wired through the ignition side (GM brain fart I'm sure)... I would of course check the fuse to make sure it's not blown, but if not what I ended up doing was tapping into the analog clock in the dash for constant power to the radio, or you could just run a wire to the fuse panel if there's no clock in the dash...

My 85 Olds is the same way. I wired the constant power HU wire through a 1 amp fuse to the fuse box on the firewall.
