you probably dont have your h u 'memory' wire hooked up to 'all the time' power from the car. get a multi metre and check which power wires have 12v when the ignition is off. connect it to that, rather than a wire that loses power when the ignition is off.

in other words the wire on the back of the head unit should be yellow you need to find the constant power as that is what keeps the memory for the head unit

get a test light when the h/u is out place the clamp of the test light to a good earth and stick the point of the testlight in the wires with out the ignition on and only one should light the test light up when it does that will be your memoey for your head unit.

here is an excellent site for all you do-it-yourself installers. Has everything you could ever want to know and more about 12 volt systems. If you can't find your answers here you shouldn't be playing with it Eh!
