    thanks that was great help! got all the wires sorted now. only problem i have is the ground wire. all the bolts on my car seemed to be painted. can you drill a screw into the chassis and connect the wire to that?

  • masonmarxx Sep 17, 2008

    i've tried connecting it to the bolt and what happens is it sparks as i connect it and then doesnt do anything. whilst it sparks, i can hear the bass but as soon as it stops i hear nothing. do i need a stronger connection?

Your radio should have a blue wire with white stripe on it - this is the 12v remote turn on lead. You didn't leave the amplifier model in your post, but most any aftermarket amplifier will have only 3 power connections. One is 12v constant (battery), one is 12v negative (chassis ground), and the third should be a 12v triggered lead (either from a head unit or from ignition). If you are having trouble with this, I would recommend checking with a local stereo shop as they can assist you.

    Yes you can...ideally you want to carefully sand or grind any paint from the area around the screw or bolt to get the best chassis ground.

  • Elliot Sep 15, 2008

    yes you can....and you can also scrape a little paint away from a bolt with a grinding tool or brush to get good ground contact.

How do you wire the remote switch on the sony xplod 52wx4?


If you mean the "remote turn on" lead, you should connect this to a 12 volt remote turn on lead from your head unit or you can wire it to a 12 volt source that turns on when the key is turned on to start the vehicle. Wiring it to a dedicated remote turn on lead from the head unit is optimal though.

Connected a Dual XPA2100 300 watt amp to the battery and connected ground to chassis of vehicle. Vehicle is 2004 Saturn Ion with battery located in trunk area. Amp does not power on, all connections are...


The remote wire DOES need to be connected to the head unit. You can see if thats the problem simply by touching the remote wire to the power wire. The unit should come on. The head unit should either have a remote lead, or a power antenna lead, and thats what you need to turn the amp on and off. BE SURE your ground is solid, and its usually best to take that to the battery as well to prevent unwanted engine noise. Hope this helps!

I have jvc car audio model # kd-g335 how to connect my sub woofer?


You can not connect the subwoofer directly to your head unit. You need an amplifier installed to play the sub woofer. Asuming that there is an amplifier installed then: If your head unit has an RCA output on the rear, connect that to the LINE IN of your amplifier. Also there should be a Blue&White cable at the rear of the head unit.(amplifier remote) That should be connected the the remote terminal on the amplifier. (this will turn the amp on and off when the head unit turns on or off) Hope this helps. dreamsystems

Hi I have a JVC KD-G801 car cd player/radio. Today a mechanic uninstalled it from a car I have which I will be selling and he installed into a newer Peugeot 306 I bought at the weekend. The stereo is...


Yes... the wire designated for constant power which powers the clock and some of the lessor memory functions is disconnected.
I would remove the radio and look for the lead that is disconnected and have a constant power lead attached to it to cure this issue.
Have the mechanic who did it the first time do it.. as it was already paid for him to do so in the first place...

I have removed my JVC KD-G801 from my car but realised that there is still a CD inside the unit. How do I remove it?


Hook your power wires and ground up to a cordless drill battery , 12 volt, or 14 volt. Or use jumper wires from car battery. Hit eject. You don't need all the speakers etc hooked up.

My amp is working fine but turns off when i insert a CD


Hello pumpin_up_da,

The most likely cause for the problem you describe is that the remote turn-on lead to the amp is functional only when the head unit is operating in tuner mode. This could be caused by using a power antenna lead instead of a remote lead. Some head units have both, some only one or the other. Check the wire going to the amp remote terminal with a voltmeter. If it shows 12V when the radio is operated in tuner mode but 0V when you switch to CD, then check the wiring. If this is the cause, and your head unit has a dedicated amp turn-on lead, then connect it to the amp terminal. Most head units that have both power antenna and remote leads code them "Blue" and "Blue/White". If your head unit does not have an amp turn-on lead, you need to wire it to a 12V switched source, usually the "red" wire on most aftermarket receivers. You can then put a SPST toggle switch (available at Radio Shack or most auto parts stores) in line with the wire and turn it on and off as desired.

If the correct wire from your head unit is currently connected, then the receiver is defective and needs repair or replacement. Or, if everything else still functions normally, and really don't want to bother with repair or replacement, you can still use the 12V switched source as described above.

Hope this helps.

The remote turn-on wire for an amplifier connects to a switched power source. If the head unit has a power antenna lead, or amp control lead, use it. If not, the remote lead can go to a power source that is switched with the ignition key. No matter the source, you need to fuse the wire with a 1 amp fuse at the point where you connect to the power source.
