Need to know what order to hook up red,yellow,and black wire which to positive which to neg and what size inline fuse is needed for my mcd 5080


Red- power Yellow-Memory Black-Ground

Unless the yellow wire has a fuse built into it then....
Yellow- Power Red-Acc/Ign Black- Ground

If the fuse you are asking about is on the radio t s usually a 10 or 15 amp fuse but if you mean for the power wire for a amp then it depends on the power amount of the amp....look on the amp and find the sum of the fuses on the amp and use a inline fuse that is the next fuse size sum...
Ex. 2 40 watt fuses on the amp then 40+40=80 watts so you would want to get a 100 watt fuse. Also remember you can never go to big for your inline fuse with a amp

I have 3 power wires on my Jensen MCD5080 marine am/fm/cd, a +12dc switched (acc)red wire , dimmer orange wire and a +12v dc battery (constant batteryemory yellow wire) do i hook them all to the same power...


The yellow wire (constant) is for functions such as clocks, retaining fm stations, etc. The red wire (DC power) is what runs the unit. You said this is going on a golf cart right? But you say you don't want switches and don't want it to drain the battery during storage. Well, you can't have the best of both worlds. If you don't like the visual of a switch in the open, at least put one close to the battery under the seat. That way you can switch it off in storage. The switch would go to the red wire. You might even think about switching the orange wire if you expect to keep it in long term storage. the dimmer wire usually hooks to interior light controls. Like when you turn your lights on to drive at night, the radio won't be so bright inside, but in the day time, it will be. This is not a necessity. Happy wiring

Jensen crossover power supply yellow wire connect to battery negative. blue wire connect to ??? Black wire connect to ground.


The blue wire is a remote turn on for your power antenna. It's kind of like a switch power off of the back of the radio. Do not connect this wire to switch power from the key. A red wire should be connected to the vehicles accessory system off of the key.

I have a jensen cd6112 radio vol control is not working also will not change bass/tre/ or speakers.Tried reset button but no change .Vol knob won't do anything.


I was installing a speaker and while drilling a spark flew. Didn't think anything of it and finished instalation. When finished the audio didn't work on any of my speakers. I have a jensen cd6112 and the unit seemed to be fine. Tuned in, the lights came on and everything. I hooked a radio straight to the speakers to see if they were blown and they worked fine. Is there a fuse in line with the speaker wires? I would hat to buy another jensen unit and the same problem exist. Any help? Is the jensen unit bad?

HI,have modle vm19311ts,,,,need to know what wires to hook to power to test,,,was a 2nd hand unit for sale,,,thank,s for any help


You'll want to power the red (switched ignition - the one that turns the system off when the key is off) and the yellow (constant 12V - used to maintain memory settings and tone settings when the car is off). Ground the black wire. This will allow you to power up the unit, although with no speakers hooked up you won't hear whether the internal amplifier works.

I cant play dvds with out the parking brake on but i have my jensen in my house right now so how do i get the override code to come up


I don't know where everyone keeps coming up with the idea that there's a code you can enter to defeat this lockout.

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.
