Question about Panasonic CQ-RX400U Car CD/ MP3 Player

Open Question

Technics J201 Wiring

Just got a Technics J201 car cassette at a used stuff shop and need to know the wiring configuration of the harness connector at the back so I can soder wires to it rather then buy a harness. I could be being really cheap and may just go buy the connector, but want to do this as inexpensivly as possibly. The head unit cost $4 and may not even work.

The wires for the two harnesses should be color coordinated or at least closely colored. The harness should have come with either a guide that says what is what or the wires themselves have little flags saying what they are. You can use this to match it up with CD Players wires by using the manual from the CD player to know which wire is what.

You have a bad ground somewhere. You also may nneed to replace your spark plug wires. The deck is getting interference from the engine due to a grounding problem.

Best of luck

SOURCE: Not for sure which is the hot and which is the ground wire.

Solid black is always ground on aftermarket head units. Red is usually the ignition wire, ie when you turn your car on, your stereo turns on. Hot or positive is usually yellow and usually the biggest wire

Hi and thank you for using fixya:

For the wiring harness you can go to an electronic store and give the model of your radio they will tell you which one is it. Or try any online electronics retailer

I have a kdc-mp142wm what other recievers would plug right into the existing harness?


There are wiring kits you can buy that have the proper connectors on both ends of the wire harness so it will match up with the radio and the car's wiring harness. No cutting or splicing involved. Just push the connector into the radio and the car's original radio plug connector.

Diagram abot wire harness


A wiring harness for the unit is most likely more than you would pay for a used unit at a pawn shop. Most sony receivers have the terminals labeled on the circuit board. If you are lucky, you can find a dead one at a stereo shop or repair shop near you. They didn't name them explode for nothing. Be careful. 25312832-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-2-0.jpg

NEED WIRING DIAGRAM


If you are referring to installation and have the aftermarket wiring harness, The wires should be color coded. RED, YELLOW, & BLACK are power, ignition and ground. These should correspond to matching wires on the back of the head unit (CD player). Match the colored wires from the back of the unit to the same colored wires on the aftermarket harness and then connect them using wire connectors/wire nuts. Once you have them into the correct order the aftermarket harness should connect into the harness in your vehicle. I hope this answers your question =)

Connect jvc kd-lh1150 in elantra 2001... different connector


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. http://www.SonicElectronix.com 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 http://www.modifiedlife.com.Hope this helps.

Searching for wiring harness sequence.


Found a service manual here, but you have to pay for it (only 4.95 USD). It has the wiring block specs you are looking for.
