2000 chevy venture. How do I install a JVC stereo?


Check your local Walmart or Auto Parts store for the correct wiring kit to change your factory radio to a JVC...the kit is inexpensive and provides professional connections that are easy to trace...remove the face plate around your factory radio, and you will see 4 corner bolts that hold the radio in place...be sure the antennae connections are the same size. Hope this helps.

Need help with a 1998 ford e150 cargo van. Its the base model. No power locks or anything fancy. I have no power to the radio at all. All fuses seem to be okay. Im having an issue finding a fuse diagram....


There is no Relay. But I believe that the Radio chassis has to have good ground. That can be easily checked with a test light connected to a Positive(+) Source.

Hi im putting in a JVC cd/radio in a 1997 ford escort TD,Ive removed factory fitted Ford radio cassette,leaving 5 wires connected to a yellow plug,I have 3 wires coming out of JVC marked yellow memory back...


hi...well i know this might not be of any help, but you can buy a connector that plugs straight into the ford plug, and then you plug the jvc plug/s into that, not cutting wires no messing up the original connector just incase you want to sell the car with original system in it... http://productfinder.autoleads.co.uk/productinfo.aspx?&m=FORD&f=ESCORT&id=463&pID=6889
thats the link for it...if you tell me what colours are on the ford plug i could tell you what goes where...thanks

I just replaced my factory stereo in my 2002 honda accord. i have two red wires left over that appear to be my dash lights. i dont know where to connect these two wires to make the dash lights come on when...


I have no idea about the wire that puts out gear position lights. But the one that makes dash be on constantly, is the memory wire for radio. You do need continuous power for radio to remember stored radio stations, audio adjustments and last source selected. Most aftermarket radios have two power cables, red and yellow, one is switched, meaning that it only gets power when vehicle is turned on, and the other one gets electricity constantly.

Im trying to put in an aftermarket stereo from jvc. the 12v power wire is hooked up and the ground is hooked up, the stereo has power, but it only comes on for a second, and then turns off again, any...


I am not a radio guy but i think there are two 12v wires , one is constant power and the other is for alumination. see if anything changes if you turn the headlights on.

Im installing a JVC KD - A315 radio in a 2003 alero, when i took out old radio all the wires were cut and turned into speaker wire running all over the place the factory amp is in the back i went ahead...


There may be extra wires you don't need. The basic set of wires on the radio is 4 pairs of colored wires--one black-striped and one plain for each speaker. Yellow is usually accessory power, red is hot, and black is ground. Some additional wires may be one for a power antenna, one for an external amplifyer, and one for facelight (in case it will run on dimmer)
The car should have the following corresponding wires:
Radio 12v--- orange
Radio Ground--- black
Radio Ignition--- yellow
Radio Illumination--- brown
Dimmer--- gray
Power Antenna--- pink (if you have one)
LF Speaker +/- tan - grey
RF Speaker +/- lt green - dk green
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue- lt. blue

The car or radio could have additional connectors, such as for a subwoofer, CD changer, etc.

Radio wire harness cut


You can buy a kit from a number of sources to solve this problem. Instructions come with the kit. If you are putting a stock radio back in go to a junk yard and cut the loom out of another truck and marry it to your truck. If you don't want to do either of these things the fat red wire is almost always hot. The antenna cable is unique and will only fit in one spot. the speaker wires are small diameter and will work no matter which way you hook them up as long as one hot (speaker) wire and one ground wire go to each speaker. Have fun.

Wiring difference


If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.
