JVC KD-PDR30 remote switch wire

The remote switch wire stays hot all the time.  Ignition on, ignition off, radio on, radio off.  This keeps my amp on all the time and runsdown the battery.

Hi sounds like theunit is faulty, you will need to have the unit repaired, or have the amp switched via the ignition this would be the cheapest option.

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.

Most wiring now is standard colors....red=ignition(goes to a switched power source...Yellow=battery...goes to a hot all the time(even with key off)...black=ground...white=left front speaker positive...white w/blk stripe=left front speaker negative...gray=right front spkr +...gray/ blk=right front spkr - ...green=rear left +....green/blk rear left - ...violet=right rear +...violet/blk= right rear - ...light blue or blue with a stripe is the remote turn on lead either for an amplifier or power antenna...some radios have an orange/ with white stripe that connects to your parking light dimmer circuit to dim the radio light with the dash lights....and then you should have the antenna plug and possibly rca outputs that go to an external amp

My radio wont power on but it turns on to eject and take Cd's but it will not turn on so i can listen to the radio


that sounds like the power is hooked up but the ignition (yellow wire i think) isnt hooked up right. this is what shuts off the radio when you take your key out.

Check your wires they might be touching steel around your car mostly look at your yellow and red wires those are the 1' that give it power and light to your radio also check your radio fuse in the back.

Trying to hook up a AMP


What I did to manualy turn on and off my amp is I put a wire hooked to the fuse followed by a switch and then from the switch ran it straight to the amp. Make sure that the wire plugged into the fuse is the on the fuse for the radio and that it is live only while key is turned on. I have this set up for police reason. They do not like loud music where I live. I have never had a problem with this set up. RADIO FUSE-------SWITCH----------------AMP

The Touch will not work with the KDPDR30. I spoke with JVC and their models that will operate the Touch are KDPDR40, KDAPD49, KDPDR45, KDPDR41 and KDG47 the last two have a cable required.

Power will not stay on


Sounds like you're not getting voltage on the accessory power lead. This is the red wire at the back of the deck, and it supplies power whenever the key is switched on. It's possible that your vehicle's radio fuse is blown.
