    Sony Headunit help!

    My friend recently bought a Sony Headunit I have no idea what model it is, so i installed it for him, all the wires were ****ed up when i first started so i guessed the wires, turns up i did a good job everythings working and everything, the only problem I got is the buttons for favorite radio stations isnt saving everytime you shut the car off and on, theres been more problems with this system, I told him to stay away from Sony, but he doesnt listen to me, so theres another problem with his subs/amp shutting off randomly, that he has to shut his car off/on and/or wait for it to turn back on, he keeps *****ing at me b/c theres a wire not connected, i told him your not giving off enough power, any suggestions?

    you dont have the yellow (memory) wire hooked up to the 12v constant, thats why its losing the stations.

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    Re: Sony Headunit help!

    yeah, he went ahead and bought his system, i told him to stay away from sony, but his friends have it, so he didnt listen to me, so i ended up installin it anyways, he bought a 8guage wire, and tells me why his amp is losing power, he actually blames me b/c i installed it, then all his wires were cut behind the headunit, from the original honda wires, he made his own 2 adapters to put into the previous ownsers old headunit (he needed a new headunit b/c the old one didnt have rca output. But ive heard his friends sony, he told me its loud as hell, he turns it up to 20, im like wtf... thats like mine on 5.

    My guess: It's not the Sony. It's your install. The problem with the presets is an installation error, pure and simple.
