    in my over zealous attempt to get it hooked up I over looked the "second" safety fuse I have in the yellow line.why I have it there escapes me.It was blown.everything works as it should now.It is real nice to have a clear head guide you(you guys) after 3 days of off and on frustration.I was ready to resign myself to accept it the way it was.the stereo was stolen and the thieves broke my window and ripped the stereo and wiring out so you can imagine the's all straight and re directed to it's proper place..again many thanks for pointing me in the right direction with the yellow wire.steve..

First red is ignition or acc (turns off and on with the key) yellow is constant power (always hot keeps memory) orange is illumination (lights up radio) if vehicle doesnt have a seperate illumination wire connect it to the ignition wire. now process of elimination your ground is correct because it worked with all wires to acc your acc works because u had all them connected to it and it worked your problem is in your yellow or constant/memory i suggest u test it again take piece of wire any old thing long enough will do and run the wire directly from the battery under the hood and just run it outside the car through the window and connect it directly to the yellow wire make sure u have a good connection at the battery on the positive side if u have test light or volt meter test the wire before connecting it to the radio if it works then u know there is a problem with the wire from the vehicle (fuse wrong wire bad wire ) if it doesnt work make sure ground is connected tight and that paint is cleaned of the surface where ground connects and that the yellow wire to the radio is tight in the back of the radio.

What is a 12v acc.

1.Wire name: ACC wire
Color: Red
Describtion of ACC wire:
When you insert key into ignition switch and turn it to the left you are turning on the ACC circuit. It will allow you to operate radio, windows and other accesories, but it does not turn on fuel pump and other engine controls. It saves battery power for when you need to operate vehicle components without engine being on.
The ACC wire offers power/electricity only when you insert car key into ignition switch and turn it to the left
The ACC wire needs to be connected to car igniton
2.Wire name: 12V battery(+)
Color: Yellow
Describtion of 12V battery(+) wire:
The 12V permanent battery wire will always offer power/electricity when the vehicle is turned on or off
The 12v permanent battery wire needs to be connected to car battery.

The diagram is not right my CD player will not turn on unless the red and yellow hooks up too the green wire

The Red and Yellow must both provide power.
Red to ACC ignition and the yellow to permanent battery power to retain station memory.
So look for 2 power sources.

Hi:) The yellow goes directly to the battery posative and the red goes to the ACC on the KEY switch if the radio is not connected to the posative ACC wire on the Key switch you will have no Radio at all the yellow is just for the radio's Memory and the CD motor and eject.

Here is a install pdf. site for that radio.

I tried to wire a jvc kd-r320 in a 1996 jeep grand cherokee, hook it up and i got no lights or sound, when i turned on the jeep lights a loud buzzing sound came over the speakers?

You have the live connected to a speaker, recheck the wiring diagram. Red is the acc power, Black Neutral usually and yellow is direct power from battery. Wire just these and check if you have power and then do the speakers after you have that much working.

Where do you connect the memory wire on a jvc kd g110 car stero.....what color is the memory wire ?? what does hook red wire to acc fuse mean??? what wire does the red wire on the radio connect to on...

The yellow wire is most likely the memory wire as it needs to be connected to a constant 12 volt source.

"Hook red wire to to acc fuse" means you need to hook into the fuse block under an Accessory Fuse. (ie: something that can't be turned on unless the car is running or the key is in the "Accessory" position)

The red wire is explained above. It does not connect to the harness.

Just remember that the yellow wire needs to be hooked to a constant 12 volts and the red needs to be hooked to a circuit that is only active when the car is running or switched to the "ACC" position.

i dont know where you can locate the Eclipse Security Network cd (sorry) but the red wire that you connected is wrong. It is the yellow wire that needs to be connected to the battery and the red wire needs to be connected to the ACC ignition switch and the black goes to a ground source (chasis)

I bought a used pioneer car stereo/cd player for my boat,battery wire marked, acc marked ( what does that wire up too?? ) & remote wire?? wat does it hook too ??

battery(yellow) goes to power that is ALWAYS on.(straight to + on batt) red or acc goes to accessory position of ignition key. (if no acc then wire to ign on(unless you want to listen to it with boat off then wire to batt + also but deck will be always on. REM is remote switch wire(gets power when h/u is on) and is used to turn on the amplifier if you have one or to make electric aerial go up. if you don't have either then don't worry bout it. leave it off but tape up the end.

Won't turn off or on automatically

You must have the yellow and the red wires tied together on a constant voltage source.

Only the yellow wire should be on a constant voltage source.

The red wire should only get voltage when the ignition is turned on or in the acc. position.

You need to rewire the red wire on the radio.

Let me know if it helps.

Re sent wire diagram gat all messed up

have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok

How to install?What wires hook up to where?

Hi, Re the power wires - black is ground (or - of battery), red goes to the + terminal of the battery and the yellow would go to the Acc in the ignition switch of a car. If you are hooking it up on a spare "battery", you have to twist together the red and yellow and connect both to the + terminal. Good luck and kind regards.
