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.

that sounds like the power is hooked up but the ignition (yellow wire i think) isnt hooked up right. this is what shuts off the radio when you take your key out.

Could have the switched 12+ wired to the seatbelts. Which would caquse the radio to overpower the limit set for the seatbelts causing what you are saying. Switch the wire to the ignition source.

Jvc kd-s590, installing in other car and only the att (red) light comes on no display or sound. tried resetting, fuse is good. that's it.


sounds like only the constant(yellow) wire has power. you need to make sure that the switched wire(red) has power as well. good way to trouble shoot, is to hook the red to the yellow to see if it powers up then, if so you know the radio is ok, you just need to find a better power source for the red wire. hope this helps.

I dont know were the ignition wire is im trying to hook up a jensen cd player to my 1998 nissan sentra


Ignition wire is any switched lead that is off when the key is off.
In a 1998 Sentra, the wire behind the radio that is a switched power lead is BLUE.

Double check with test light or voltmeter.

How do I connect a JVC receiver to the ignition switch?


you need to get a testing meter, connect the black lead from the testing meter to the car ground. and one to the pin in the connectors. Do this with the car ignition switch on, find one that's live, then turn the ignition switch off it should go off. then just cut the wire and connect it together. make sure you have a good ground lead connected to the ground of the car.

Have you checked the cables? It appears that you have connected the wire for ignition directly to the power in and the direct +12v to the ignition cable. When turning ignition off, the memory is then emptied.

First we need to eliminate some possible install errors,
1.) is the deck turning on.... if not check to be sure power wires are hooked up correctly ,..... if deck is turning on and speaker wires are hooked up properly, this problem is usually caused by not hooking up the power wire to the factory amp, I'm not sure what color the wire is as they are different with many types of cars, as soon as you locate the wire hook that wire to your ignition wire to your raido usually the red wire coming out of the back of the deck.... when you are finished you should have your ignition power wire feeding power to the radio and the factory amp
