Re: RS525 5 1/4

The infinity system is unique in that the amplifier for each speaker is built right onto the speaker. You will need to bypass it by looking at the wire colors as they go into the JVC stereo, then finding them at the speaker. My suggestion is to just put 2 new speaker wires in and wire the speakers directly to the radio. You will have to routhe them through the dashboard but it's pretty simple to do. BTW, i know that vehicle well as I used to own one and customized the whole van.

First, I recommend always using a wiring harness. If you don't use one, you risk the possibility of frying your entire electrical system. So is that $100+ radio worth $2500. There are also install kits available online and at your local stereo shop. Check out youtube for videos on installing if you plan to do it yourself. Good luck.

Ok, are you asking for information on how to install it, or are you saying it's not possible. If you want to do it yourself, you will need the wiring harness, install (faceplate) kit, and instructions. There are several sites that offer step by step instructions for a small fee (I recommend). If you are lucky, you might find the instructions on youtube. Good Luck

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.

If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

I have a jvc kdavx1 trying to hook up to a 2000 buick reagal need to know how the wires hook up

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2000 Buick Regal Car Stereo Install Diagram jvc kdavx1
Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Orange yellow
Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Yellow red
Radio Ground Wire: Black/White black
Radio Illumination Wire: Gray/Black orange/white
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Tan white
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Gray white/black
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green gray
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Dark Green gray/black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Brown green
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Yellow green/black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Dark Blue purple
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Light Blue purple/black
parking brake: blue light green

For this last wire, access the back of the parking brake to find a switch with a blue wire. Peel some insulation from the wire and wrap the stripped end of a 3 foot piece of 16 or 18 gauge wire around the stripped section. Solder and wrap the connection with electrical tape, route the wire to the jvc, then strip and solder the other end to the pigtail of the head unit.

If you are also installing a camera seeing behind you when backing, you will need to run a wire to the back-up light on the driver side reverse light (light green) wire along with your video cable.

I have a 2005 Chevrolet Venture van and the CD changer has stopped working. I am unable to eject the CD's or play them. The radio and the rear entertainment dvd player still works.

I would take the cd player apart to get your disc and just replace the deck itself. That goes for your speakers if they nedd to be replaced. I have a town and country van which i have a system in so if ya need any help just let me know.

I want to know where and which cables to connection on my van

Thats pretty vague, but here is the basics:

Battery wire (red) should go from the battery of your van to the amp (+)
Ground wire (black) should go to the frame (metal) of your van and to the (-) of your amp

The blue wire should go from your amp to either the back of your stereo unit (remote accessory) or to the fuse box (accessory/ignition)

Left/Right audio should go to the subs.

If you are looking to install a new stereo into your van, they make a wiring harness that will fit the year and make of your van to get you going in no time.

All you do is buy that little wiring harness, and connect the wires on the back of your new stereo to the same colored wires on the harness, and plug the harness directly into your dash!

Super easy!

Hope this helps you out!

I need to locate the position of the booster amplifier in my 2001 Town and Country, Radio and CD works fine but no output from all the speakers

If the radio turns on and functions with no sound, you may try wiring the Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire (some times called the power antenna wire...which is Gray/Green from the factory harness or blue/white from most after market harness adapters) to the accessory wire.
