I have a 2002 Peugeot 206 and my radio settings keep resetting and so does my clock. I can turn the ignition off and if it's on again within 5-10 minutes my settings won't have reset however, if it is left off any longer they all reset. I have tried swapping the red and yellow wires but then I lost the settings as soon as the ignition was switched off so I swapped them back. Any help? Thank you

This is nothing to do with swapping red and yellow wires around if the clock is also going off you have a bad power or earth connection somewhere or a BSI fault.

Could be 1 of dozens of earths they are all over the place !

Could be a loose wire disturbed during fitting the aftermarket radio.

There is no easy cure its just a case of testing things/checking wiring.

I changed one of the fuses and now the clock is keeping its time (and the boot light works :) however the CD player is still deleting all its settings. Is it less serious now the clock is working and keeping its time?

They are all vital to the car's health. The permanent live to the radio is not connected so it loses presets when ign off, re-check the fuses as there is probably a second fuse for this.

Are there any fuses in particular that I should be checking? I have already checked all the fuses with the label 'audio equipment' in the manual. Thank you

Hello, I don't seem to have the same fuse box as in the link above but I have checked any other fuses relating to audio equipment. Do you think I should check every fuse? Also, now my battery keeps dying... went for a 1 hour drive the other day and the next morning it wouldn't even open with the key fob and wouldn't start. Not sure if I need a new battery? The car has had the new head unit installed since my sister bought the car just over a year ago and it has never stored any of the settings

Clearly it is a wiring problem with the replacement radio, you'll need to check it's wiring diagram and confirm it is connected to a permanent live. Can you put the old radio back in? If the battery is more than 5 years old you probably need a new one.
