JVC detachable face with auxillary input

System works great except for one thing... the fm radio reception. Some parts of town is barely ok and in others no signal. Installed on a 1998 Honda Accord. All other features work just fine. What's the deal?

How is the reception on AM ?- if the antenna is the problem you won't get any reception on AM !!!! If you can get AM on two or more stations the antenna is not your problem- if you get AM reception and don't get FM the problem is the fm tuner in your Honda radio( usually it would need several solder joints redressed)- we repair these factory radios -Merle840@aol.com.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

How do i connect a mp3 player to a jvc kd-g331


if the deck doesnt have an auxilliary input or usb input then the only way to get sounds to it and through it is going to be by using an fm modulator that will broadcast your mp3 tunes through an fm signal that you choose and simply tune you radio to the station that you chose to broadcast through.

No AM reception for car radio...do get FM reception.


I was having the same problem with a jvc kd hdr 30. I Installed it myself over a year ago and never wanted to deal with the issue. Finally, I decided to take a look at it today.
On my head unit, all wires were connected except one blue one with a tag that says "do not connect to power, for remote device or power antenna only." This unit is in a '97' MBZ E320 with no visible antenna; I think it is part of the windshield. In any case, between the wiring diagram in the manual and the harness that is part of my car, I was left with 2 blue wires to choose from, one with a white stripe and one with a gray stripe. After testing both for power or ground, I determined neither had power with key on or off. Both had high resistance ground when compared to the chassis ground. In other words, I measured between chassis and these wires. First, I took a wire and connected it to the chassis ground and connected the other end to the blue wire coming from the unit while tuned to a local am station. This simply killed all reception am or fm but did not harm the unit. Next, I connected the blue wire with gray stripe of the car harness to the blue wire of the unit and again this killed all reception. Then I connected the blue wire with white stripe of car harness to the blue wire of unit and presto magic I had great am reception.
I am guessing that this blue wire with white stripe must be part of the antenna itself or perhaps is a connection that increases antenna power. Maybe 'power antenna' on tag refers to an actual powered antenna (like as in amplified?) and not as in an antenna that rises up out of fender, as I believed.
This may not help the first person with the question, but maybe it will help someone out there who searches for these kinds of answers like I do from time to time.

MY JVC CD CAR RADIO DETACHABLE FACE LIGHTS UP LIKE ITS WORKING . LOOKS LIKE IT WORKS THE LITTLE MUSIC BARS MOVE UP AND DOWN (LIKE ITS PLAYING TO THE BEAT)NOTHING COMES THRU THE SPEAKERS. EVERYTHING LIGHTS...


If this unit worked in the past, and there have been no repairs done that would have disturbed the connections, then its quite possible that you accidentally engaged the mute feature. 
Good luck...

Stereo wont work with engine on


best thing is to pull the radio out and check the red and yellow wires red wire is the egnition switch and your yellow is the always on for your memory if you like you can connect the red and yellow wires to the yellow one that will work with engine on or off but every time you get out the car you will need to turn the radio off manually i sugest pulling the radio out and checking the 2 leeds as far as you can it could also be a fuse gone but it wouldnt work when enging is off so not sure except check the wires your engition switch doesnt play up does it like your dash clocks go off and on while driving headlights etc? need more information please

Fm Radio signal?


There was a black wire included (with a metal "cap" to insert in the FM center connector) that served as the FM antenna, but in a pinch any wire can do, preferably about 33" long and with the insulation stripped from the last inch or so (or get creative and sand the last inch of varnish off a properly sized untwisted clothes hanger and gently bend to suit). Bare stranded wire should be twisted or folded until it's thick enough to firmly fit the middle "hole" of the FM antenna connector. Be careful that no strands of wire short to the metal ground "ring" surrounding the hole or the antenna won't work (although it won't burn out your amp like shorting the speaker wires would, it just won't work). Orient the wire horizontally or vertically for best reception. This unit also doesn't pick up FM very well if you're in a steel-framed building or away from windows in the general direction of the local transmitters, so moving the unit closer to a window may help dramatically. In bad reception areas you can get an external FM "rabbit ears" type antenna but you'll need the "European" style of 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer to plug it into the unit's FM connector (one that has a bigger central connector "plug" than the usual US units). Some cable systems also still support FM, if yours does, a VHF/UHF/FM signal splitter and either the above mentioned transformer attached to flat 300 ohm cable or a plain  "European" style connector attached to the end of the 75 ohm round black cable will do the trick. Some Radio Shacks have them. Good luck!
