Trouble playing JVC KD-S580

I installed a JVC KD-S580 into my 1990 Geo. After I installed the head unit it would not play. The problem was not that it was not getting power because it would accept a cd and eject a cd, but once it accepted the cd it would turn off. I would also display the time for a short period if I hit the display button but would turn off after a couple of seconds. Basically the unit would not turn on to play the radio or a cd. The only functions it would perform were accepting a cd, ejecting a cd, and displaying the time for a short period when the display button was pressed. When I applied pressure to the back of the unit (not the wires)it would play until i released the pressure. If anyone can help me with my problem it would be highly appreciated.

Re: Trouble playing JVC KD-S580

I have the same problem in a 2001 mercury cougar. i got power all the way to the back of the radio from the ignition (red) and constant (yellow) wires and the ground wire is good. Think the head unit might be screwed the fuses are all fine. not sure though

I have jvc car audio model # kd-g335 how to connect my sub woofer?

You can not connect the subwoofer directly to your head unit. You need an amplifier installed to play the sub woofer. Asuming that there is an amplifier installed then: If your head unit has an RCA output on the rear, connect that to the LINE IN of your amplifier. Also there should be a Blue&White cable at the rear of the head unit.(amplifier remote) That should be connected the the remote terminal on the amplifier. (this will turn the amp on and off when the head unit turns on or off) Hope this helps. dreamsystems

CD Player in my JVC KD-S580 "no disc"

the lens in your cd player might be fried. is it a factor cd player or aftermarket. some people at certin dealerships will have a bad part and swap it out for a good one from someone elses car. it happened to me one time. i took my car to get a tune up and when i got it back they had switched me cd players. they gave me the same kind i had but i knew mine wasnt broke it was only a few days old. i went back there and told them that and they said that nobody did anything to it and i said about getting the cops and then the guy in the grage gave me back my cd player. so make sure that it didnt happen to you.
