For powering the Pioneer DEH-1700, there would be 3 wires involved:
1. yellow - always on B+ such as the + terminal of the battery;
2. red - switched B+ such as the ACC of the IGN switch;
3. black - ground/chassis.
A DVM (voltmeter would be handy to check for presence of B+12).

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above wiring procedure, you may need to do a look & see inside the unit..

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

first of all you have to check the power supply to the set is going off.check the fuse holder of car relating to the radio.then check the fuse holder closed to radio unit.some radios get own fuse in wire harness.then losse connection can be occur radio units socket.

For your Jetta, you may need a different wiring harness.

You need to be able to trace the wiring from the two dins on the back of the Kenwood receiver, and une the wiring diagram for the 1996 Jetta.

Perform your cross reference here for the receiver wiring:

Here's the wiring for your Jetta:

From the jetta wiring, it looks like your Right Front speaker isn't connected.

Judging from the symptoms, I'd guess that "ACCS" means "accessory". All CD players have a constant power input and an accessory power input. There has to be voltage on both wires for the CD player to work, although the clock and CD load/eject functions will work with just a constant power connection. My guess is that there's an accessory switch somewhere in the boat that needs to be turned on for the CD player to activate. Failing that, if you can get the the wiring on the back of the CD player, the red wire is the accessory power wire. You can simply cut it and re-connect it to the same source as the yellow constant power wire. This will allow the CD player to work independently of any outside switches.
