Radio has no memory

My car had an old after market radio so i bought one that was a bit newer. My friend installed it (he has some experience installing radios in other cars. first time with a civic). When he took the old radio out there was a little box connected to the yellow wires. My friend disconnected it and has the red and yellow wires together. The new radio has no memory and i have read that it has something to do with the yellow wire. Should that box be in the circuit or does it really not matter.

Re: Radio has no memory

Civic or not, a radio is a radio. Wiring is wiring.
Your friend isn't ..............

Hey, you're using your head.
I'm sure your radio came with instructions. Use them.


Or this

It's an RF choke. Noise filter.
It did not come packaged with your new radio.
It should go out with the old radio until you know otherwise.
