Car radio stuck on ‘one hour’ mode

The radio on my 2007 Ford Mondeo is stuck on 'one hour' mode, regardless if the engine is running or not. Ford technical has said it was the GEM module, which I changed, but the problem persists. Any ideas?

If your Head Unit is showing one hour mode with the ignition on then you have definitely lost the 12v feed to the ignition, this you will find is controlled via fuse number 69 - 7.5 amp.

The radio should only show 1 hour mode when there is no key in the ignition and you power the unit on.
