Question about JVC Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

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 button, the problem still exists. Help!

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.

    Since I was "absolutly right", wouldn't that rate a "FixYa!" instead of a "Helpful". After all, that is the apropriate rating when you solve someones problem.



    In any case, I am very glad that I was able to help you figure this out. Have yourself a great holiday this year.

JVC KD-G140 Chevy s10 problem


Your headunit is getting constant power (yellow wire). You most likely have no switched power (acc red wire). You can be certain by testing the red wire w/ a 12 volt test light when your ignition is on. If there is no power to this wire then you probably have a blown fuse. The radio fuse should be a 10amp fuse located in the drivers kick panel.

I would suggest checking the accessory (red wire), the yellow is a constant feed from the battery, which will allow the clock to be displayed no matter what. The accessory wire is what is used to turn on the cd player. You may need to restrip the red wire and check the lead going to the red wire with a test light to make sure it is getting a voltage light.

Power will not stay on


Sounds like you're not getting voltage on the accessory power lead. This is the red wire at the back of the deck, and it supplies power whenever the key is switched on. It's possible that your vehicle's radio fuse is blown.
