hi have a 52 plate c3 that came with an aftermarket radio fitted. the radio works kind of it doesn't go on when you turn the car on you have to do it manually but you can't save any radio channels and depending on what button you push it takes you to something completely different like MW1 or 2 or FM2 or 3 or AUX. The clock keeps flashing and won't stay set at the right time and date, everytime you turn the car on it you have to reset it, also not sure if this is related or not but there is a problem with the central locking as well, the unlock button on the fob doesn't work but you can lock it and all four doors lock when you put the key in it only unlocks the driver door then you open the door and all the doors unlock. I know that's a lot to be going on with but it is doing my head in had the car since December and still no further forward so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

The radio has been fitted incorrectly.

To prove this remove the radio completely and test the central locking.

To get the stations to save, you need to have the wiring altered which will also sort the central locking.
