How do I install a JVC KD-G140 car cd deck

I am looking to buy and install a JVC KD-G140 car cd deck for my sister's 2000 mazda protege. I have very little experience installing car stereos but I consider my self tech savy and I am hoping to save some money by installing it myself. I was trying to find the install instructions online but could not find them anywhere. Are there any online install guides or am I in way over my head? Thanks in advance!

You  are not in over your head. You just need to make sure you pay close attention to detail when connecting the wires.
First thing to do:  Go to a place that installs car stereos and tell them you need the complete install kit including the wiring harness adaptor. Most all of these places will sell them to you. It is what they use to install the radio. They must know what type of car you are putting it in. Give the the mjake and model and year. They will then give you a bag full of plastic parts and another small bag with a wiring harness. MAKE SURE you get both. You really do need them. The plastic parts are for mounting the radio in the car properly. Without it, you will have something sloppy and it will not look right. It should have instructions. The kit will usually be able to be used for several different models of cars and any model of radio. You must pick which part is right for your car and radio. As I stated, it will have instructions.
Next, after you have the plastic mounting parts picked out for your radio, you will need the wiring harness for your radio and the wiring harness adaptor that you just purchased. The wiring is easy, just match the colors from the harness of your radio, to the same colors on the adaptor harness. Make sure that the wires are stripped properly and they are twisted together properly (or use small wire nuts or crimping type if connectors). Connect red wire to red wire, yellow wire to yellow wire, black wire to black wire, and son on until all wires are connected. Then for extra safety wrap each wire with some black electrical tape to ensure that if a pair if wires came loose somehow that they would not touch anything and short out causing the radio to need service.
Now you just plug the proper end  of the harness into the radio and the other end into the harness in the car that the factory radio was plugged in to. Make sure to plug in the antenna as well. Make sure the cage that the radio is  in is secure in the plastic mounting brackets you have purchased. Then the radio will go right into place and the bracket will screw in where the factory radio used to be screwed into.
If you need more help, just ask.

Bluetooth turn on


Hello imback2009,

The JVC KD-G140 does not have a Bluetooth option, either built-in or with an adapter. And as far as I can tell, it doesn't have a "mute" or "phone" wire which would allow installation of a generic bluetooth adapter, such as the Parrot. If you want to connect your cellphone, I'd recommend you look at an upgrade here.

Hope this helps.

Press the Mode button (M) and the display will flash mode. Then hold the select button (SEL) until it changes to display something else. Hit left and right seek until you find clock M and clock H. Hit select again and use the volume button to change the time! Took me two freaking hours to figure that **** out.

Unable to play MP3 CDs on JVC KD-G140


I had this same problem and realized after reading the manual that this model does not play mp3's. They use the same manual for the g140 and the g240 (the model which plays mp3s).
