Your computer is no good and should be changed out...

I would check the KAM circuit, it is what supplies power to the ECM so it can remember settings after the key is turned off, this circuit will be hot all the time, also check your battery, I have seen some of these loose memory if the battery drops below 9 volts during cranking. HTH
