Question about JVC KD-G230 CD Player

1 Answer

Unit will not turn on

Bought a new JVC KD-230 yesterday from Circit City. Removed old unit and was very careful to match all the right color combinations of wires from power cord to wiring harness. No mix ups, honest. Each is well connected with a wire nut. Unit is well grounded and antennae wire is inserted. Unit will not react at all, as though there is no power. Tried the reset. No help. Removed the unit, reinstalled the old one (at least I used to get AM and FM from it) but now it too acts like the new unit; NOTHING. Also, now suddenlt the electric door locks will only work if the ignition is turned on, whereas used to work without the key anywhere near the ignition.

This seems like you have accidently rewired part of your electrics. You may have wired the power wire into the wrong place, and also wired your electric door locks into your accessories. YOU NEED TO BACKTRACK. Find you doorlock wiring and get it back to a constant power supply. Best bet is to wire your power wire of unit to cigarette lighter by splicing the wires or jacking the outlet at the back. Here is a guide to install your stereo. Following those steps and see if you went wrong somewhere.

Car manufacturers donot keep color code. Your best bet is to order a universal adapter. JVC color code can be found in the instruction book. I will attach a picture. upload is not working. email me to jpulickal@gmail.com

Why does my jvc kd-r526 reset to factory default everytime i turn it off


Try connecting the yellow wire to a constant power source. That is, a source that still has power when the key is turned off. The yellow wire controls the memory of the radio.

Need to wire JVC model KD-G340 into a 97 Kia Sephia


Do not cut the wires from the car. Instead, call Crutchfield at 888-955-6000 and order the adapter part number 120701003. When you call them, ask for color coding. For JVC, refer to the attached picture. Match the adapter color code with that of JVC. If the adapter color code is the same, then connect ground (black), battery (yellow), and wire from ignition switch (red) securely. Turn on the car and see the radio works. If it works, connect one by one speakers and confirm. Remember, perfect connection gives reliable installation.
