Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

Cant get the power to work on a xd1222


If the radio is correctly installed and, there is no power on the vehicle's accessory wire when the key is turned on, check the vehicle's radio fuse. If you connect the red to constant 12 volt along with the yellow radio memory wire the stereo WILL NOT TURN OFF. There is nothing strange about that.

Fitting a jvc head unit to a 1990 telstar tx5 does the yellow wire from car connect to yellow from jvc and does red access. wire from car connect to red from jvc. because have tried this nothing happening...


get a voltmeter(multimeter) and check the voltage on the

red wire
and
yellow wire
(from the car)
when the car is turned off and when the car is on

one should be 0V when the car is off
and both should be 12V when the car is on

then you need to match that up with the radio using the manual

but im guessing that you dont have a manual so...
i want ot confirm that
when you connect red to red and yellow to yellow
nothing happens

try the oposite way

red to yellow yelolow to red

DehP6700 mp restet everytime keys is turned on.


first red is ignition or acc (turns off and on with the key) yellow is constant power (always hot keeps memory) orange is illumination (lights up radio) if vehicle doesnt have a seperate illumination wire connect it to the ignition wire. now process of elimination your ground is correct because it worked with all wires to acc your acc works because u had all them connected to it and it worked your problem is in your yellow or constant/memory i suggest u test it again take piece of wire any old thing long enough will do and run the wire directly from the battery under the hood and just run it outside the car through the window and connect it directly to the yellow wire make sure u have a good connection at the battery on the positive side if u have test light or volt meter test the wire before connecting it to the radio if it works then u know there is a problem with the wire from the vehicle (fuse wrong wire bad wire ) if it doesnt work make sure ground is connected tight and that paint is cleaned of the surface where ground connects and that the yellow wire to the radio is tight in the back of the radio.

The yellow wire must be connected to a constant voltage source. You have the red and yellow connected to a voltage source that only gets power when the car is turned on. The yellow wire is for the memory. Check the fuse box for a fuse that has voltage on it when the car is off and the key is not even in the ignition. That is the type of connection the yellow wire needs. The red wire can stay connected to the place it is at now.

Are you using a harness that is made for installing a radio into a 99 neon? They sell them at most all places that sell car stereos. Go in and ask for an installation harness for your car and then you connect it to the harness that comes with your radio by matching the colors of the wires and you have a nice and easy install. It plugs right into the factory harness with all the connections you need.

Won't turn off or on automatically


You must have the yellow and the red wires tied together on a constant voltage source.

Only the yellow wire should be on a constant voltage source.

The red wire should only get voltage when the ignition is turned on or in the acc. position.

You need to rewire the red wire on the radio.

Let me know if it helps.

JVC car radio/cd player wont switch on


As a sanity check run a temporary wire directly from the battery positive to the radio. Twist the red and yellow wires together and connect it to the wire from the battery. If this works either your red or yellow wire connection under the dash or to the harness is not hot like you think. Yellow usually goes to a constant 12 volt source (to keep radio memory) and the red wire to 12volts when the ignition is on. In some radios this is reversed. The test I mentioned will determin if the problem is in the wiring or the radio.
