I put a new sterio in my '90 Chevy 1500 and i don't keep constant power. It runs perfect when the truck is running but when I turn it off all of the presets reset. I was wondering if i could just run a line strait from the battery to the radio or if there was a better place to do it from. ie: cigarette lighter or relay box? Give me anything you got.

The relay box would be your best bet to do this but you will have to run an inline fuse to do this or you could blow your cd player i will help. If you need help give me a call. You missed a hell of a day at work we still need to put the fasha board around the house and run sofet.

I assume aftermarket radio.... with that said there should be two power sources. One switched source for powering the deck. The second should be battery for memory. That has a tiny draw and won't run your battery dead. Sounds like un-switched power is not connected. Cigarette lighter is a good place for non-switched power.
