JVC car radio/cd player wont switch on

My jvc KD-G152 car radio/cd player will not power up. both yellow and red feeds are live although the previous owner has taken both these feed wires from one permanant live wire behind the dash.Not sure if this is the problem but cant see why it should unless red wire need to be dead when using reset black wire is correcltly earthed. system will not power up press the display or eject button and system lights up for about 3 seconds then goes dead again Have carried out reset (on off button together with set button but again nothing)system is almost new but cant return under warranty so any suggetions would be most welcome thanks trevor

Re: JVC car radio/cd player wont switch on

As a sanity check run a temporary wire directly from the battery positive to the radio. Twist the red and yellow wires together and connect it to the wire from the battery. If this works either your red or yellow wire connection under the dash or to the harness is not hot like you think. Yellow usually goes to a constant 12 volt source (to keep radio memory) and the red wire to 12volts when the ignition is on. In some radios this is reversed. The test I mentioned will determin if the problem is in the wiring or the radio.

Swapped red and yellow wires on my JVC KD-R200, then swapped them back. Now it only powers on when I push the Eject button. Otherwise, nothing

Swapping the red and yellow wires cannot possibly have any affect on the radio. Both wires need to see 12 volts for proper operation. If they are reversed, it would only simply fail to save the memory settings. You have other issues. You have probably lost power on the red wire.

JVC stereo not working properly - 2001 Sonata

generally wiring from the car is as follows...

red = ignition controlled live
yellow = permanent live

if you want stations saved and manual switch off of uni connect radio's yelow and red wires to the cars yellow.

if you want stations saved and radiounit switch off controlled by ignition (i.e only when car is running) then yellow to yellow and red to red. anything else will cause issues...

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-s590, installing in other car and only the att (red) light comes on no display or sound. tried resetting, fuse is good. that's it.

sounds like only the constant(yellow) wire has power. you need to make sure that the switched wire(red) has power as well. good way to trouble shoot, is to hook the red to the yellow to see if it powers up then, if so you know the radio is ok, you just need to find a better power source for the red wire. hope this helps.

You need to swap the ignition live and permanent live around. If you have a vauxhall the car stereo wiring is the opposite way round to everyone else! Some Rovers have it aswell.

JVC KD-G110 car music system is taking CD and not getting played am not able to function any ...?

Hi. your radio has 2 power wires. A red one and a yellow one (with most decks) It sounds like your radio is getting only constant power but no "key on" power. Check your radio with the key on you should have power on both the red and yellow wires. If you are missing power on one of the wires theres your problem. If you have power on both wires then there is something internally wrong with your radio...
