purchased, after vehicle has been turned off station settings will not stay set.

I think all the power is being cut off to the radio when you turn the key off.

F_O_R do I need to check wires? I know nothing about working on vehicles.

I don't have a wiring diagram for your car but I believe there are two hot wires to the stereo. One is on all the time to keep the memory and the other is switched. Maybe the constant hot wire does not have power.
