There are two power wires that go to the radio, one that is hot all the time
that keeps the clock running and one that is only hot when the ignition is

presets and the clock are dropped every time you turn off the car.
Probably a fuse. Check all the fuses, especially anything marked "radio
backup", which is usually in the underhood fuse box on older hondas.

what could be causing that. normally the clocks in hondas last the life of
the car. if it did happen to go bad you can also go to a junkyard to look
