I own a 2003 Ford Taurus SES and recently put an after market car Stereo in it. It is the Boss 616UAB Audio receiver. I had to use the modified faceplate and new wiring harness to rout the wires to the trunk. The problem I'm having right now is the Clock keeps resetting and the station presets Keep resetting.Can anyone help?

The constant power & the switched power are reversed. Or the radio itself is defective.

yep... your unit isn't getting constant power.
  • Yellow wire goes to 12V + constant. This is constant power, all the time. It is what keeps your clock running, and the presets loaded.
  • Red wire goes to 12V + switched. This is what turns the unit on/off, when you switch the ignition on/off.
  • Black wire goes to 12V negative (chassis ground).

That's not a curve ball. A lot of radio's hold tunes and bluetooth info for a while without power. My Pioneer does. My moms Kenwood as well.
