    Head Unit stop wowrkin for some reason.....NEED HELP ASAP

    ok heres the run down.... i jus installed a subwoofer and amp to my car. when i was putting the radio bak in place, it jus turned off. i switched my stock radio bak in and it worked. i checked the fuse and it didnt seem blown. but the weird thing is, everytime i start up the car the time rests itself. does anyone know wat may be the problem

    Everytime you start the car the clock on the OEM unit resets?

    was the battery negative post unplugged when you did this? the clock resetting means its losing power every time the car shuts off. maybe when you were putting it back in the dash you pinched a wire?

    you should always unplug the battery when working on the car, ALWAYS! or else you can shock the **** out of yourself and ruin your equipment.

    You probably have a blown fuse, possibly in the fuse box under the hood. There are usually two vehicle fuses that supply power to the radio; many factory radios will still work with one of the fuses blown but aftermarket head units will not.
