Clarion DXZ785USB - Connecting Fused Lines

On the wiring harness for the head unit there are two yellow lines. One is labeled "Yellow Wire Memory back-up lead" which has a 15A fuse. A second "Yellow Wire Bus power lead" has a 3A fuse. In both cases the instructions say 'connect directly to battery'.

My confusion is as follows.
1. Do I really need to connect these directly to the battery?
2.If so to what terminal?
2.

You will definitely need to connect the Yellow Wire Memory Back-Up Lead, since this is the connection from the radio to the battery that stores the time and your presets. If it is not hooked up, you can use the radio, but all your settings will return to default once you turn off the car. The Yellow Wire Bus Power Lead sounds like it would be for powering an auxiliary unit like a Sat Radio or HD Radio add-on. You will not need to connect this unless you have an add-on such as one of these.

You do not need to connect it directly to the battery. There should be a yellow wire on the harness that you can connect both of those to.

My 03 elantra gt radio resets when i turn off the car


Ignore the color of the car's wiring harness(every manufacturer has a unique color code system).The memory wire needs a constant 12v battery connection to keep the presets.One of the factory radio's feeds will be a 12v feed like this.The best tool for figuring this out is a basic 12 volt test light.

HI,
If you make a close verification on the back side of kenwood DNX9980HD 20 PIN HARNESS then you can see a Light Blue wire with Yellow stip ( BLUE/YELLOW) on it with a identification mark as "Remote cont". You have connect this wire to the Brown wire with white strip (BROWN/WHITE) from the 20 PIN HARNESS of AXXESS ASWC . There wil be a brown wire also from this 20 PIN HARNESS of AXXESS ASWC, leave it free insulated. It will not use with kenwood radios. You have to check for LIGHT BLUE with WHITE strip. There is also two other blue wires of which one with white strip. You hve to choose the light blue wire.
ok

Where do you connect the memory wire on a jvc kd g110 car stero.....what color is the memory wire ?? what does hook red wire to acc fuse mean??? what wire does the red wire on the radio connect to on...


The yellow wire is most likely the memory wire as it needs to be connected to a constant 12 volt source.

"Hook red wire to to acc fuse" means you need to hook into the fuse block under an Accessory Fuse. (ie: something that can't be turned on unless the car is running or the key is in the "Accessory" position)

The red wire is explained above. It does not connect to the harness.

Just remember that the yellow wire needs to be hooked to a constant 12 volts and the red needs to be hooked to a circuit that is only active when the car is running or switched to the "ACC" position.

As long as you have connected the ground(black) try adding one wire at a time to the live(red). If possible try connection each wire one at a time to the power line and then both together. If nothing has blown(fuses) and the unit starts working then you can try by trial & error method the remaining wires. You should be able to figure out which wire is required and if there are any extra wires like cellular phone(mute) and then decide whether to connect them or keep them open.....sodeep
