Why do i have to reset radio stations each time i turn car off?

Your radio must be poorly installed in your car for you to reset your stations every time you turn your car off. A car radio ultimately rely on 3 wires for it to function properly. 12 volt wire- Gives Continuous Positive current to radio. Saves your settings, and Saves your stations when your car is off and on. Ground wire- Gives Negative current to radio. Work with the Positive current going to your radio coming from the 12 wire. Without this wire connected, your radio wont function at all. Accessory wire- Will only provide Positive current to radio when the car turn ON. This wire is used to make sure the radio will turn on with your car. The reason you have to keep resetting your stations every time you turn on your car is because someone connected both 12volt wire and Acc wire that's from the radio into the Acc wire in the car. There's no continuous positive current going to the radio when the car is off because the 12volt wire in the car was not used. I'm a professional MECP Certified Mobile Electronic Installer.

How do you install a scosche FM-mod02 FM modulator on a 2006 Chevy Cobalt?

Very simple to install if you are somewhat handy with splicing electrical wires. There is a Red wire that needs to be taped into the radio ACC power line and a black wire that needs to be grounded to the chassis. If you don't have a manual/wire diagram on hand... easy way to check which wire is the ACC is to (1) unplug the harnesses on the back of the factory radio, (2) ground the MOD02, (3) turn the vehicle key all the way to "off", (4) insert the MOD02 red wire into one wire of the harness at a time and turn the key to "on". Remember to turn the key to off again after you are done checking that specific wire to start over. The wire that makes the power switch on the MOD02 glow only when the key is turned is your ACC wire. You will need to splice into this. After this it's pretty much plug and play. Some vehicles (my Infiniti for example) require an antenna adaptor because they don't utilize the standard Motorola connection that the MOD02 needs as your radio antenna wire now plugs into the MOD02 and the MOD02 plugs into your radio. These are relatively inexpensive.
