Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video
Not sure what kind of car you have but,,, just for the heck of it, when you turn on your lights , try turning your interior dimmer all the way up. If the radio works again, then you have it powered from the wrong wire in the dash. It needs to go to a constant hot (12V) and Accy/ignition (12V) and not to a lighting wire which would power the back lighting of a factory radio.

Either you blew the memory fuse or didn't connect the radio to the proper wire. Check fuses inside and under the hood.
The memory wire to the radio needs 12v all the time. If it's not connected or no power at the lead the radio will reset every time you turn off the car.

there is only one power wire i cant remember the color use a test light to figure it out...then you need to make a wire off the fuse box that turns on when the ignition is on

to solve the problem with it turning off when u turn your lights on is that on the back side of your radio is a spot that says max and something else keep your ground wires conected just how they are but get u a a 14 to 12 gage wire a cut u about 6 inches and use one end and connect to your other ground wires (with Connecters ) and the other end and with a closed end connecter with the little hole in the center i cant place wat its called but any ways put it where that max hole thing is where there is a screw there and that should fix that problem cause i had that happen before .. but make sure your antentia is pluged iin to ok .. good luck Paul,
