    Re: hu will not store settings

    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...

    exactly what i was going to say lol



    Free men do not ask permission to bear arms,An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject,Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.,Gun control is not about guns; it's about control,You only have the rights you are willing to fight for,Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety,You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive,Assault is a behavior, not a device,64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday,All Rights Reserved,The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others,What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?,guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians

    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.
