Question about JVC KD-S6060 CD Player

Resets when car ignition is turned on.

Since I have had the player, every time I turn on the ignition, the presets reset meaning I have to retune all of the radio stations again. The garage that sold me the car fitted the CD player for me. I drive a Vauxhall Astra. Is this likely to be one the cars where the yellow and red wires need to be crossed over? I am worried that if I disconnect the player I will have to enter the code (which I don't have).

Re: Resets when car ignition is turned on.

You will need the code unfortunately, you can patch in a pp3 9volt battery but it is akward.
i suggest you go back to the garage and let them have a go swapping the wires round

Resets when I turn ignition off

The yellow wire on your radio needs to be connected to an always hot fuse or wire. It is hooked to one now that is connected through the ignition, which is why it won't keep settings.

Hi i turn my alpine on and i have 2 retune the radio stations i store them but when i get back in my car i have 2 start 2 retune any idears

Probably you dont have the constant pos (+) wire hooked up to hot (+) wire and only to a source that is switched. Switched means every time your key is removed from ignition switch the positive current from that source will also power down. There are two positive leads from the unit, 1 always hot and the other needs to be switchable. The constant hot (usually yellow) powers the memory for your settings. Just like your television set, once you pull the cord off the socket everything returns to default setting.

Cant program car radio

Sorry to say, but you will have to pull the unit and locate the wiring to it. Have a tester for dc voltage and find the power wire that goes on and off with your key. Once that wire has been identified, Find a wire that has 12vdc all the time even with the key off and go to the one that went off and on and cut it. The wire going to the unit strip and splice to 12vdc that is on all the time. Cap and tape the wire you cut that leads away from the unit.
If you need more help feel free to contact me.

Newly installed alpine resetting

Chevy stock speakers are 8 ohm. You should change out the stock speakers. Or at least dissconnect the back speakers and see if cd player still overloads and shuts off.

If you lose your preset stations as well, it means that your memory wire (sometimes yellow sometimes red) is not hooked to a constant power source. Get a testlight and find a wire in where the radio is at that has constant power once you find that attach the memory wire.

Kenwood kdc 3011 rests its self every time i turn the car off

This means that the power lead you connected the red and yellow to is a switched live and each time you turn off the ignition the power goes off and therefore resets. to fix this problem you need to connect the yellow to a permanent 12v supply that stays live when you turn off the ignition.
