The wires you posted need not go anywhere not unless you have a device that will attached to them.
antenna power - connects to the motor of a telescopic external car antenna. When you power on the unit, it will automatically raise the antenna;
amp power - connects to an add-on/external amplifier. This switches/triggers the amp to gon when the Jensen is powered up;
reverse - attaches to the reverse light of your vehicle. This will tell your unit that you are reversing and will activate a rear view camera.

As earlier stated, if you do not have any use of these devices then there is no need to connect the above described wires to anything. Connecting them to the ground would have a bad effect on the internal circuitry of the Jensen since they are meant to supply power and therefore are connected to the B+supply when the Jensen is powered except for the reverse which would sense a 12V from the vehicle's transmission. Connecting them to the constant B+12 would have no ill effect except that your Jensen would always be on.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Any news on your Jensen DVD Player?

    Was just thinking, on your initial post, you stated "...I've tried grounding them to the chassis ground wire..." would result to at least a fuse blowing or in some instances, a diode or resistor burning. Most probably you have to check the circuitry inside with special attention to the power section.

#9 fuse keeps blowing

If you have a trailer harness, inspect it carefully , possible shorting wires. Most installers use cheesy scotch-locks or butt connectors and don\'t properly insulate them . If ok, remove tail lite assemblies and unplug harnesses from modules , bulb/socket modules common for shorting out.

I have a 2001 CRV. The replacement alternator has 4 prong plug. The one on the car has a green 3 prong plug?

Here's the problem:
Sounds like you have a Canadian SiR harness (all Candian 6th gen civics use a 3 wire alternator plug instead of the USDM 4 wire setup, IIRC its because the Canadian civics don't have an ELD) easiest thing to do in this situation is to reuse the original SiR alternator.

Don't know where you live or where you bought the vehicle but it's Canadian. Next time you need parts be sure and tell your supplier that it needs Canadian parts.

I dont know how to wire lights to trailer from 1986 toyota pickup

You need a "test light". Then you turn on the circuit you want to wire in, tail lights, brake lights, blinkers and poke around the back of your light sockets until the test light comes on. Then you splicew into that wire and run it to your plug in. If you don't know which wire is what on the trailer, hook it up and with the wire fastened into the truck harness, try it on the trailer harness wires until you get the proper lights working. Process of elimination. Hope this helps.

I need to know what the wiring harness wires do and go to by the colors of the wires. Example (yellow=12v constant/Red=12v acc/ Black=ground)

OK, I assume you are talking about the harness of wires from the radio itself. If you are going to install this, I recommend you purchase an install wiring harness. This way you can plug into the factory harness of the vehicle. If you are attempting to hardwire the radio, please don't. If you vehicle doesn't have the factory vehicle side of the harness, try visiting the scosche or PAC website to see if they have it first. If you purchase a wiring harness, it will have all the information for the right install. Hope this helps.

I bought a JVC KD-R620 and I can't get To power on without having the ignition wire(red) and the battery wire(yellow) connected. And it won't save my settings either..I don't have a blown fuse...

Ok, just so I get this right. You want this unit to power up, without hooking the 2 power wires??? Red is constant power, yellow is switched power. Did you use a wiring harness to hook the radio up or did you hard wire it? I alway recommend a harness. This would make the install easier. If the unit works witht them wired, use it.

Bought a used coleman 15,000 btu with heat pump.The wiring harness came seperately and I don,t see a place on the unit to wire it in. The wire diagram shows 24volt control but there is no transformer in...

You'll need the ceiling assembly and control box to operate it properly, or at the very least a ceiling assembly with mechanical controls. The ceiling assembly is where you will run your 110 volt, and depending on what set-up you choose, the wiring etc, relays and transformers will be determined by that. I assume you didn't get the ceiling assembly with it? Here's a link to wiring diagrams etc and service manuals to help you understand what and where to go with it. Model number should be on it, just go to proper info pertaining to your model.

The four RCAs are for the speaker outputs.They plug into the rear of the Pioneer unit (front and rear outputs). Also, you didn't mention the model number of the wiring harness (necessary to properly diagnose the situation) but, some these units have one or two philips head dials to adjust the volume of the stereo and the volume of the chime. These dials may be on the side of the unit or, oyu may need to open the casing to see them.

I need to know witch wires go into witch hole on a vrcd400-sdu head unit there is 16 holes total on the back of the wiring harness

you don't stick wires in the holes. they make a male harness for the female harness you're messing with. your radio should have a harness that plugs into it with wires connected to it. then you buy the install harness for your year, make, and model car along with a dash kit if needed. then you proceed to connect the color coded wires from the head unit harness to the install harness you bought WITH CRIMP CONNECTORS. not packing tape or shrink wrap or any other thing you can think of to insulate the bare wires. crimp caps or **** connectors with electrical tape works fine.

Canabalized wiring job on OEM radio

You should buy a replacement harness to restore the OEM wiring, so that you can then properly plug it into an aftermarket harness that has been mated to your Kenwood radio's harness. The next buyer will appreciate that the factory radio has been replaced when you're done with the car, and you get the added benefit of not being forced to leave your Kenwood head unit in it, since it can be easily unplugged once you're at that point.
