What you need is a test light. If you take off the trim on the steering column to expose the ignition switch, you'll see that it's a cylinder with wires soldered onto it around the circumference at the opposite end from the keyslot. With the trim off, turn the key to the Power position (right before the engine would crank. Look down the body of the cylinder - the wire in line with the top edge of the key is the one that is activated at that point. With the test light, you'll see that there is power on that wire when the key is turned to the Power position, but if you turn the key off, you'll see that there is no power. You can then tap into that wire, so that power is only supplied when the key is in that position.

I bought a JVC KD-R620 and I can't get To power on without having the ignition wire(red) and the battery wire(yellow) connected. And it won't save my settings either..I don't have a blown fuse...


Ok, just so I get this right. You want this unit to power up, without hooking the 2 power wires??? Red is constant power, yellow is switched power. Did you use a wiring harness to hook the radio up or did you hard wire it? I alway recommend a harness. This would make the install easier. If the unit works witht them wired, use it.

OK, before you start splicing and frying your electronics in your vehicle, STOP! There are some place online that sell the vehicle side of the harness. Check on the Scosch or PAC website. If that's still not an option, check your dealer parts guy. Even if it costs you $100 to get a harness from a dealer, it's better than the $2500 to replace all your electronics and computer. But then again, that's your choice. Happy hunting.

I have a jvc kdavx1 trying to hook up to a 2000 buick reagal need to know how the wires hook up


Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2000 Buick Regal Car Stereo Install Diagram jvc kdavx1
Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Orange yellow
Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Yellow red
Radio Ground Wire: Black/White black
Radio Illumination Wire: Gray/Black orange/white
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Tan white
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Gray white/black
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green gray
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Dark Green gray/black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Brown green
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Yellow green/black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Dark Blue purple
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Light Blue purple/black
parking brake: blue light green

For this last wire, access the back of the parking brake to find a switch with a blue wire. Peel some insulation from the wire and wrap the stripped end of a 3 foot piece of 16 or 18 gauge wire around the stripped section. Solder and wrap the connection with electrical tape, route the wire to the jvc, then strip and solder the other end to the pigtail of the head unit.

If you are also installing a camera seeing behind you when backing, you will need to run a wire to the back-up light on the driver side reverse light (light green) wire along with your video cable.

Installing a dual cd player in a 2006 scion xb but dual cd player wont cut on unless both consistint power an ignition power are both together, making it impossible to hook up for memory.


The yellow wire needs to go to a constant source and the red wire should go to a switched (ignition) source. There should be a wire that is hot even with the key off.

What wire or wired do i need to hook up from my wiring harness on my cd player so it will keep meomery


depending on the cd player, it should be labled "constant", "battery", or "memory". the common color is yellow or sometimes orange. some radios use red, but red is usually the "switched" or ignition power source. hope this helps. dave

I need to know why it says protect on the display screen


usually the red yellow and black are your main three that power on the deck yellow is for the batt red is for the ignition switch that tells the cd player to turn on when the key is turned and the black wire is ground (usually) depending on the car the deck wiring harness is always the same color but the harness wires vary
the illimination is usually and orange wire with a black stripe on it that needs to be hooked up if you have one so the screen turns on
p.constant is usually blue or blue with white stripe that is for amp turn on in some situations or power antenna.

Jvc car stereo 45wx4 kd sx991r ref the above how do I set bass treble and audio levels?As they are lost eveytime the keys are removed from the igition.Many thanks Paul Cook. email cookie2003@onetel.com


My bet is that the reason you loose the setting every time the key is turned off is because you have no constant power going to your yellow wire. With the power on major brands of cd players there are 3 "power" wires. One is black which is ground, one is red which is the accessory power, this is only on when the car is on, and the last one is the yellow which is constant which stays on all the time so that your cd player can keep settings. Good luck. Let me know if you need more help.
