Some vehicles have an illumination signal that tells the stereo when your headlights are turned on so that it can dim the display (to help keep from being blinded by overly bright stereo displays at night). If you don't have that signal, don't connect the stereo wire to anything.

unless you have a power antenna or an external amp, all those are extra wires. just cap them off. the orange wire is only used if the radio has an illumination feature that allows dimming on the radio. it is not needed to see the radio. DO NOT connect the blue/white from the radio to the orange of the harness. whenever you turn the radio on it will send 12V to your cars illumination circuit. this could damage your lights, dash lights and maybe the radios output.

I just got a Clarion DXZ385USB deck installed, but the screen does not appear blue as in the product pictures. It is dark and barely readable. Dimmer is turned off. Any ideas?


I didn't have to connect the illumination lead. If you have the battery wires(yellow) connected, the screen will light up pretty bright. When I connected the illumination wires(orange), I got the same dim screen light effect.

Cd stero wiring help


Hi,

To my knowledge, the illumination wire need not be connected to the JVC KD-G230. Further, other than the 8 speaker wires, the JVC has only:
  • black - body ground;
  • yellow - always on B+12
  • red - ACC/IGN B+12
  • blue w/ white stripe - external amp trigger and/or power antenna
Perhaps this might be of further help to you.

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.
