KD-G421 in Vectra Envoy 99

I have recently installed a KD-G421 CD player into a my 1999 Vectra Envoy 1.6. It appears to work fine, cd's play and ipod connects. Only problem is when i switch it on, the date on the dashboard disappears and when the car is turned off, the player loses all of its settings. Is this a wiring issue? Please can someone help.

    sorry but i have a question for you .what connection did you use for the ipod



1 Answer

To stop the memory loss you need to swap the red and yellow wires around. (battery power and ignition power).

To stop the date loss, you need to cut the electrical ariel/remote blue wire.

Attached cd player worked fine with cd then next time turned unit on it only shows symbols on the display n does not work no buttons work can't turn off and can't eject disc any ideas?

Most CD players will have a very small hole you can fit a paper clip into and push it
in which releases the CD drive mechansim and starts opening the tray.
You may want to press the RESET button behind the faceplate first and see if rebooting
it will make it cooperate. If you dont have the detachable faceplate completely on
some of the symptons you describe could happen.

JVC Daisy Chain

If your autochanger has an input as well as an output connector it will be possible. The iPod adapter would have to be plugged into the changer's input, and the changer's output cable would run to the KD-G421.

This manual here from JVC shows a diagram on the middle of page 1 where an i-Pod adapter (I'm assuming you have the KS-PD100) is connected daisy-chained with an XM tuner or a DLP unit. Although it doesn't explicitly say that it would work with a CD changer, I don't think it'll be a problem as long as you have an input on the changer.
