Re: jvc kdhdr1 stereo radio will not come on
If it has a removable face, remove it and look for the reset button. generally very small and needs to be depressed for about 5-10 seconds with a pen or other small tipped item. if not look throught the manual for where the reset is located if this is not an option remove the positive or negative battery cable from the battery terminal under your hood for a few minutes and then try again

yes there is fuse for radio also if this is after market radio on stereo is a fuse on baback by wires there is also fuse box in engine compartment there too is a fuse for radio i belive its a mini fuse check manual for numbered location pull out see if its blow //my jeeep did that too radio fuse was fine but iidecided to look under hood and boom there it was a blown mimi fuse replaced radio all back on
when installing a car stereo, always i repeat always tape up or put a connector on any and all wires. even if they are not used. you dont want any bare or naked wires flopping around. some of the wires may control the illumination or dash lights. you could mess up alot of stuff. also, make sure the right size fuse is used in your fuse box. if the fuse is supposed to be a 10 amp, put a 10 amp fuse in it. ive seen people use a larger amp fuse or take wire or tin foil and wrap it around a fuse to make it good again. this is one of the worst ideas to have. this could potentially burn down your vehicle. also, if you have an amplifier, or aftermarket fog lights, or anything extra on your battery. make sure you have it fused with the right amp rating fuse. failure to do so will most likely burn the wire, wiring harness, burn your vehicle.... bad idea. always use the right fuse.
Check if your fuse is blown on the stereo itself.....might be one over or under your wiring harness....If there isnt one there try checking your fuse box for a blown one.....if they are gd then you might have trashed the radio....
To answer your question: Check you in-line fuse on the power line, and trace the line back to the source fuse within the fuse box. Either of these fuses could be blown. If you hand wired your power source and ground; check to make sure the connections are secure (solid) at each end.
Also, check to make sure the stereo you are installing is designed to run off of a 5 amp fuse. If the stereo requires 10 or 15 amps, you will have to hand wire to an avaiable fuse within the fusebox.
This is the wiring codes 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck Car Radio Stereo Wiring Diagram

Sounds like the fuse for the switched power has blown. The stereo has two power inputs -- one unswitched, called "memory" because it lets the stereo remember your presets, and one switched, just called "power"
It should let you see the time, eject a CD, etc all when the car is turned off. Since the fuse for the main power line is blown, the stereo thinks the car is turned off all the time.
Sounds like you have connected your illumination/park light wire to earth the stereo. try disconnect the black wire from your stereo and reconnect it to a metal earth point on the dash, if this works just tape up (insulate) the wire that was the problem. This is a common problem when fitting stereos as the illumination wire will go to earth when not switched on.
if you matched all the wires from the harness to the kenwood deck and its not working don't worry you just missed the last step........(all wires attached that a colour coded connected)
simply turn your car on.........now on the front of the kenwood deck there is a SOURCE button with all units it could be a (S, SRC, Power) hold the source button down till your kenwood unit powers up ..........if your unit still doesn't work check the fuse on back of kenwood unit should be a 10a fuse (blue) if the fuse is fine put the unit back in dash..........now check the fuse panel on driver side dash with the door open you will see this panel pull it off (some describe the fuse panel as looking like an air vent but its not its a handle to open) now on the panel that you just pulled off there is a fuse diagram on the inside look at it find radio fuse it will be a (blue fuse) located in the top row of fuses check it if blown replace and unit should work.............if this doesn't solve the issue than its a (sneaky) fuse not to many people know about if you pop the hood of your car there is a black plastic panel located just below the battery pins and just above the driver head light (usually black box with yellow writing on it......in this there are mini fuses check all of them do not touch the black relays in there just the small tiny fuses the fuse you will look at should be yellow 20a (this fuse is closest to engine and comes after the abs relay if you look inside the lid you took off it will have fuse locations cant remember which one it is for sure but check them..........now see if your kenwood unit powers up if not the last option is to ground to the black wire from back of kenwood unit to metal frame.............this last part is also done if your unit does power on but your car lights don't work if this happens ground the kenwood unit to the frame of car and open up fuse panel on driver side dash replace the blown fuse for lights or radio (make sure the kenwood unit is grounded to the frame before replacing the fuse in dash panel............if this doesnt help you than i would assume the kenwood deck needs to be repaired by kenwood.......
hope i was able to help and sorry this list is so long
