How do I connect a JVC receiver to the ignition switch?

I am replacing the OEM radio with a JVC cd player.  JVC support says that it needs to be connected to the ignition switch to operate properly.  The wiring harness does not connect it.  Where is the connection for the ignition switch?  One other site said to run a wire to the fuse box.

You need to get a testing meter, connect the black lead from the testing meter to the car ground. and one to the pin in the connectors. Do this with the car ignition switch on, find one that's live, then turn the ignition switch off it should go off. then just cut the wire and connect it together. make sure you have a good ground lead connected to the ground of the car.

It sounds like your radio receiver or even antennae may not be properly shielded or are failing. Here is a great website link that helped me troubleshoot a similar issue .

Make sure you are getting power to both the red and yellow wires. Red is switched or ignition and yellow is constant and controls the memory of the radio.

I wanted to ask how do I get the JVC CH-X1500RF 12-Disc CD Changer to operate? Where does the unit get power, and how can I connect speakers?...Henry


These multidisk cd changers usually get their power from the operating system that you have in your car. These systems connect directly to your main radio and operations of it are all from the drivers seat. therefore you do not need to connect any speakers or power cables up to it. It should come with a few cables that help you to connect to your radio.

I own a JVC KS-RF150 12 disc cd player,all of a sudden there is no power to the unit,checked all the interior fuses,radio is working fine and all connections to the unit are secure.Tried to reset it and...


Question ?
Are you using the remote to accomplish the power on
Check the fuses again it may be that the fuse in broken
2. To check some fuses you will need a meter to see if they Ohms reading if so the fuse is bad. Usually a fuse will read infinity if it good.
2. there may be a coupling capacitor on the main board that has become weak in the power section of the circuit board,
3. Also check all connector on the main board they could be intermittently connected
4. if you have power then a connector may come disconnected such a the ribbon cable to the power switch.
5. there also may be a diode or led that has blown that is in line with the power switch will not allow power to the switch for the disc player.
6. Voltage check at these points will tell if you are getting dc power from the transformer to the switch.

How to remove the cd player from Honda odyssey EX 2002 model


The trim panel that surrounds the radio and contains the climate controls and possibly 1 or 2 other switches needs to be removed. Apply gentle, even pressure on the edges and gradually move to the other edges, and the clips should pop out.

I would advise against unplugging the climate controls or radio however other switches can be unplugged safely.

Once the panel with the climate controls is removed there should be 4 phillips head screws holding the radio in place; remove those and you should be golden.
