    Need lots more information.

    Are the speakers connected to an amp, or using the amp in the headunit?

    If an external amp, is it on?

    Using aftermarket speakers, or factory?

    If aftermarket, using the factory wiring in the doors or newly run wires?

    Do the speakers have a crossover?

    Post everything you can think of. :)

Just installed KD-SH55 JVC in Tahoe myself, no lights on but ejec

if it has a face plate and most after market radios do then it may not have a good connection check and make sure it does maybe even clean them with alcohol also make sure you got a good ground it may not have enough power to come on all the way (<-- rarely is the case) but it sounds like a bad radio

My JVC KD-S25 will only turn on when I press the eject button, and then it shuts off in 5 seconds.

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.

I just installed a KD-G396 into my car. when i turn the keys it turns on for about 2 seconds and turns off again. Then i can't turn it on again until i unplug it or reset it.

sounds like the unit is going into 'protect' mode. It does this normally if there is a fault in the speaker connections.

you have to check all the speaker wires to make sure they are connected without touching each other and that the wires are not shorting out to the car bodywork, or any other metal surface.

If everything looks ok. you'll have to check that 1 of your speakers isn't blown.

JVC KD-G340 Power Problem

I had this same probably have the wires wrong. Double check your connections for the red and yellow wires from the headunit. Make sure that your red wire is going to a 12 volt source that only switches on with the ignition.

get a good service manual for your car that shows the wiring for the stereo plug. match up the wires to your JVC's wires (solder tie wire-to-wire behind the car's connector)
