Car radio/cd player replacement, wiring problem

Hi, i am replacing the stereo in my fiat Ducato camper van as it has stopped working. Problem. It has standard ISO sockets for power and speaker fitting into the back of the new jvc unit but on the "power" supply lead it is only showing me 12volts on the permanent supply on the lead marked on the plug as "ignition 12v" it is not showing anything even with the ignition switched on. Question? Do both of the leads need to be supplying 12v? can i make a bypass lead to the battery so i can find out if this is the fault? without blowing up my new stereo!!
I would be grateful for your help.
Thanks Dave.

Yes. Both leads need to have +12v for the device to function.

Yes. You can run a bypass to the battery to make it work.

I have a fujitsu am/fm/cd/ tape player out of a 93 camry and would like to put it in a 95 camry but the color code for the wiring doesn't match and thats what I need , can you help Thanks John


Hello jrhauber,

The '93 and '95 Camry have identical color codes. Likewise, the vehicle harness connectors are the same.

Car Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Blue/Yellow
Car Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Gray
Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Illumination Wire: Green
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Black/Red
Car Stereo Amplifier Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Pink
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Purple
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Blue
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Red
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): White

You can purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs into the OEM radio. The part number you need for a 1995 Camry is Metra 71-1761 available here for $9.99.

Hope this helps.

No Audio


IT MAY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK THE WIRES BEHIND THE HEAD UNIT AS THIS IS WHERE EVERYTHING IS POWERED FROM, MAYBE A LOOSE EARTH LEAD OR MAYBE A LOOSE POWER LEAD, SOMETHING SOUNDS LOOSE.

Im trying to install aftermarket stereo


it is located behind the stock stereo up in the back farther and it look like a black box. The wires depend on the radio but if its a cd player go to like walmart and look at the radio wire harnesses and look for the one that'll work for your vehicle

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Factory radio keeps blowing fuses.


you should bypass the factory cd player. I installed a panasonic cd player in a 1994 gs 300 and it was hell. there are alot of wires that have nothing to do with the radio i believe one or some of those wires may be whats causing your problem try this solution if that doesnt work you may have a serious electrical problem
