Jvc KDAVX44 install issue

Hello, I am installing a new deck in my Ford Mustang. I've connected all the power, ground, remote, and illumination wires. I have not connected the parking break wire. Is it necessary to connect the parking break wire for the unit to power up? It's not powering up, even after resetting the unit.

No, you do not need to connect the parking break wire for the unit to be powered. My radio worked when the parking break wire wasn't attached, but you cannot watch video's or use USB without attaching it to something... you can bypass the parking break to a switch if you like.

Try grounding the parking brake wire instead of attaching it. Should bypass brake requirement for video but really should effect powering on

Where does p cont wire on a jvc deck hook up in my 92 civic

Car stereo wiring is pretty straight forward on most brands except a couple imports and Fords. I'm not sure what exactly you meen by P cont. but Honda follows the car wiring color codes exactly so here is the basics. Yellow is continuous power (this will keep some stereo functions working while the car is off, like the clock, memory etc.). Red is ignition power (this turns the main components in the deck on when you start the car). Black is always ground or negative. Orange is illumination (this will allow your deck to dim when you dim the interior lights). Blue is remote power or auxiliary power (this is what turns on an amplifier or other components when the stereo is turned on). Blue and white is power antenna on most vehicles (this will allow your antenna to come out and retract when the ignition is on or off, this functions similar to the auxilary power but may lack the amps to power certain components). the speaker wires are all the same white and grey for fronts and purple and green for rears both sets have pos. and neg. wires. If you can let me know exactly what you are trying to do then i can assist better but the easy way is always to buy the proper wiring harness. this makes the guess work simple espeacially in hondas. connect the colors on both sides together and plug it in to the deck. if you meant P cont. to be continuous power and are not using a wiring harness you can do one of two things. first and not recommended you can run a direct wire from your fuse box to the stereo. you can use the fuses in the fuse box to protect the stereo or you can install an in-line fuse or trust the fuse on the back of the deck (if it has one). just make sure it is the proper amp rating. OR (recommended) you can use a multimeter to find out which wire in the dash is hot when the ignition is off. make sure it is meant for the stereo and splice into the wire.

After i installed my alpine cd Player in my 2002 ford mustang I pressed the power/source button on the receiver and the engine started. What could cause this to happen?

when you push that power button it draws power from a 12volt constant and sends it to the acc on the deck witch tells it to turn on and off! this acc may be shared with the ing acc. now the only way that it could start your engine is if this acc is grounding out to stater,ing,acc wires etc,remote car starter involed?

Have a in dash jvc kd-sx750 cds player that won't power on

if you had the speakers hooked up wrong it would just make a crackling sound when it rubs on a surface. if your vehicle has a factory built in amplifier somewhere you may have to hook up the remote turn on wire to the wiring harness to tell it to turn on.
also make sure your illumination and dimmer wire are hooked up correctly if it doesnt display any images on the screen. and if for some reason you think its shutting off because of crossed wires maybe check the ground the batt and the ignition wire ,or the red black and yellow wires. usually when something major like those three wires get crossed it blows fuses in the car taillamp fuse stereo batt fuse ect. check all those .try resetting the deck of the car battery thats all i can think of now.

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP438U I installed all the wires right, power is to the deck because it accepts a cd. the deck face doesn't light up. I called in at Kenwood and they had me test it directly to...

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Cd stero wiring help


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.

DEH P5800MP No power

When you get the keys, or whatever try unhooking the power antenna wire as it comes out of the back of the stereo. Otherwise your guess is as good as mine.
