I have been scratching my head over this for a while now. When ever I turn my car on the radio has fully reset itself and the clock in dash rails is also wrong.
Any help or idea please

is it wired to the permanent live? as it sound like they are not. does the clock work without the keys in?

I'm with Jaysmini - look at the back of the clock if you can. should be 2 different wires going into it (+ 3rd wire to casing).

One wire will be to light the clock -easy to tell, just disconnect them when the (side) lights are turned on & see which makes the light go off.

*Note my 35LE had clock light on all of the time, not sure if it was a factory thing(!?)

 

The other wire will be the feed, so take a note of the colours on the plastic coating then find the other end that's connected to the fuse box, with the same colours.

 

Both types of fuse box (old 7 new) should have a permanent & a switched feed, so just find a free connecting terminal if you can & swap over. You may need to fit a piggy back spade connector if there are no free terminals.

 

Let us know what age / type mini you have if you get stuck.

Good luck
