    Sony head unit losing memory everytime i turn off the car

    Hey guys!

    Have installed my Sony head unit into the motor today. Everytime i turn the car off the memory is being wiped which is a bit of a pain. Any ideas?

    Also it may be coincidence but since putting it in, my car when first started says INSP on the little digital display and makes a bleep on opening the door to get out?

    What have i done!!!!

    Cheers for any advice in advance!

    There will be a red wire and a yellow wire on the loom that connects the head unit to the car wiring. Swap the red and yellow so re connects to yellow etc.

    If they have connectors on them, then even better

    is that cos it needs a constant 12v supply, even when the car is off?
