I just bought this stereo and installed it the other day. I had the same issue. Hook the Yellow power wire and the red accessory power wire to the same power source. That solved my problem.

Check your ground. then double check your power sources. i have the same radio you have. the eject gets its power from the constant source. What it sounds like is a blown fuse, bad connection with the key on/accessory position wire, or bad ground.

New truck with Jvc KD G230 How do I set the time

Hold down the Sel button for a second to enter the menu. (Sel is located just under the CD slot, slightly to the left) Then use the track forward, track back buttons to select either "Clock H" or "Clock M" Change those values by twisting the volume control knob when they are flashing. Press sel button again to save and exit. Cheers, Dan

Stereo stations wont stay set

If you have a yellow wire that is the memery wire. It needs to be hooked to a constant hot. If you do not have one you need to get a new plug for the back.

While testing before final installation of the JVC KD-G240 CD Player, the only power I can get is to eject a disc and temporarily display the time. I cannot turn the unit on. After pressing the reset...

This is an indication that the "ACC" line is not getting the 12 volts to turn on the radio. Check the fuses, it may have blown one. The "ACC" is the red wire that comes off the back of the radio harness. It needs a 12 volt supply when the key is turned on for the radio to work properly. When this is missing, you will have the conditions you have described. The yellow wire is for a constant 12 volts even when the radio is off and the car is off. Since you do get the eject and the clock display you have a good ground, so that is not an issue. You just need to find out why you do not have the 12 volts on the red wire when the key is turned on in the car.

Have just installed (per instructions) a jvc car cd KD-G386/KD-G385 receiver in my caravan, nothing seems to operate, have reset it. and press "display"button-clock comes on for couple of seconds...

Hi colinelva.
I can probably help you but I need more info.
Lets start with the vehicle, What year ,? What specific model?, What type of head unit came out? Was it factory?
Did you use a wiring adapter, or just cut the plug off and hardwire it?. If so give me the color code of all the wires that you used in the dash. are their any left over but not hooked up? How many speakers? All Factory?

I don't need any info about the JVC Head unit.
Lets start with that, and we will take it from there.
Regards, Paul
