As far as I know, If the illumination wire is connected, the radio dims the display when headlight is turned on.

Wiring problems?


http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/kdcmp238.pdf

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.

Cd stero wiring help


Hi,

To my knowledge, the illumination wire need not be connected to the JVC KD-G230. Further, other than the 8 speaker wires, the JVC has only:
  • black - body ground;
  • yellow - always on B+12
  • red - ACC/IGN B+12
  • blue w/ white stripe - external amp trigger and/or power antenna
Perhaps this might be of further help to you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Stereo wiring chart


If you go to anyplace that installs car stereos you can purchase an installation harness that will connect directly to your factory harness in your car. That way you would only need to wire your Kenwood harness to the instllation harness and that is just a matter of matching colors from the Kenwood harness to the installation harness. All you need to do after that is plug it in.

The wiring on the Kenwood harness is as follows:

yellow = constant 12 volts
red = ingnition (12 volts when key is turned on)
black = ground
white = front left speaker positive
white w/black stripe = front left speaker negative
grey = front right speaker positive
grey w/black stripe = front right speaker negative
green = rear left speaker positive
green w/black stripe = rear left speaker negative
purple = rear right speaker positive
purple w/blackk stripe = rear right speaker negative
blue = power antenna
blue w/white stripe = remote amp turn on
brown = phone
orange w/white stripe = illumination
