Try this, you can connect thru CD Changer Input, that called J-Link. There is cables, that goes from J-Link to 3.5 mm jack.
So you need to buy on the ebay "JVC J-Link to 3.5 mm".

SOURCE: connect jvc kd-lh1150 in elantra 2001... different

Hello claude_bouth,You need a vehicle specific aftermarket connector generally called a "wiring harness". Your JVC came with a plug that fits the back of the receiver with "pigtail" wires which you splice to the harness wires. sells the Metra 70-7301 which appears to be the correct harness for your Elantra.You can tap into the wiring of the car harness and splice the wires by function into the appropriate car wires, but using the aftermarket vehicle specific wiring harness is a lot easier and you don't need to disturb the vehicle wiring in any way, just plug into it. It also makes it possible to re-install the factory radio if you ever need to do so. If you choose to tap and splice, you can find your Elantra's wiring color code at this helps.

it's not for running your ipod or whatever else, it's for steering wheel control for those cars that have the feature. that's what it says in the manual anyway, there's gotta be a way to run the ipod through though for sure

I had the same problem, the cd refused and radio plays good, with JVC KD G321. I have disconnected the switches behind the radio and also disconnected the antenne (do not forget the antenne) and it played the cd again.

Jan (my english is not so good, i hope my solution is better.

SOURCE: need to wire JVC model KD-G340 into a 97 Kia Sephia

Do not cut the wires from the car. Instead, call Crutchfield at 888-955-6000 and order the adapter part number 120701003. When you call them, ask for color coding. For JVC, refer to the attached picture. Match the adapter color code with that of JVC. If the adapter color code is the same, then connect ground (black), battery (yellow), and wire from ignition switch (red) securely. Turn on the car and see the radio works. If it works, connect one by one speakers and confirm. Remember, perfect connection gives reliable installation.

JVC KD-G801 CD player has light on (on) button but doesnt switch on when pressed

Look for a pinhole button on the face, just left of the #1 radio preset. Use a ball point pen or paper clip to lightly hold this button for 2-3 seconds. You may do this with the key on. This will reset the radio's microprocessor.

Let me know if this helps.

Just bought a brand new jvc cd receiver and it won't turn on.

Please check if the wiring was done correctly. check the ground the all time +12 volt and the swittched +12 volt. If the set does not power up then I suggest that you MUST take the warrranty claim being a new set. Refer to the dealer before you can open the player so as not to void the warranty

Hi I have a JVC KD-G801 car cd player/radio. Today a mechanic uninstalled it from a car I have which I will be selling and he installed into a newer Peugeot 306 I bought at the weekend. The stereo is...

Yes... the wire designated for constant power which powers the clock and some of the lessor memory functions is disconnected.
I would remove the radio and look for the lead that is disconnected and have a constant power lead attached to it to cure this issue.
Have the mechanic who did it the first time do it.. as it was already paid for him to do so in the first place...

I have removed my JVC KD-G801 from my car but realised that there is still a CD inside the unit. How do I remove it?

Hook your power wires and ground up to a cordless drill battery , 12 volt, or 14 volt. Or use jumper wires from car battery. Hit eject. You don't need all the speakers etc hooked up.
