Garage
Along with the main power wire, there is an auxiliary/memory power wire. This needs to be connected with something that keeps power, even with the ignition off.

Yep. Usually yellow, IIRC.

Same thing happened to me when I installed my Clarion unit. I used an install kit I got from Crutchfield and the wiring connector had the main and memory power pins swapped. I just swapped them in the connector and all was good.
