The accessory wire needs to work with the key turning. the battery wire connects to the battery. if you have a volt meter it can be very easy to find your wire connections in the fuse box. find the ignition fuse in the box set your meter to volts dc take your black lead to a chassis ground and the red lead to one side of the ignition fuse turn your key to accessory and see if you get 14 volts if you do get it thats your connection. if not try the other side of the fuse.

if you are popping fuses you must ground all the black wires to metal in the car sounds like the ground is carrying a positive charge .......you must also check the 10amp radio fuse located in the panels of the car mostly located in-dash panel by the door ........hope i helped

There may be extra wires you don't need. The basic set of wires on the radio is 4 pairs of colored wires--one black-striped and one plain for each speaker. Yellow is usually accessory power, red is hot, and black is ground. Some additional wires may be one for a power antenna, one for an external amplifyer, and one for facelight (in case it will run on dimmer)
The car should have the following corresponding wires:
Radio 12v--- orange
Radio Ground--- black
Radio Ignition--- yellow
Radio Illumination--- brown
Dimmer--- gray
Power Antenna--- pink (if you have one)
LF Speaker +/- tan - grey
RF Speaker +/- lt green - dk green
LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow
RR Speaker +/- dk. blue- lt. blue

The car or radio could have additional connectors, such as for a subwoofer, CD changer, etc.

Radio and inside lights not working

Check your grounding, prob have used illumination line as ground, when lights switched on it goes to 12 volts and if connected to radio ground fuse will pop. Ground radio to chassis and isolate the wire you have used, replace fuse (probably blown) and should fix your problem.

I want to wire the kd-s640 to my boat. I need to know what wire by color (except black ground) goes where. Thanks. [email protected]

Usually it's....

black = ground
red = switched battery power
yellow = constant batery power (for clock...etc)
orange = illumination
blue = amplifier turn on or accessory (electric antenna, amps etc)

green/white/purple/grey are speaker wires.

JVC drains battery when OFF, puzzling

The problem is actually the wiring. Check the installation manual, I guarantee the "pro" installer took a shortcut.

There are two power wires (yellow & red +) and a ground wire (black -).
Now, black goes to chassis grounding point. Easy.

Yellow goes to a live terminal in the fuse block for constant 12V.
This retains the settings and clock etc.

Red goes to an ACCESSORY terminal in the fuse block (so key must be turned to at least ACC to allow it to be switched on).

But in the case of my car, the idiot who installed it ran the red wire directly to the + battery terminal. That's wrong, and will drain the battery.

Google for an installation manual, I'm certain your JVC head units will be the same procedure.

My JVC KD-S25 will only turn on when I press the eject button, and then it shuts off in 5 seconds.

I just bought this stereo and installed it the other day. I had the same issue. Hook the Yellow power wire and the red accessory power wire to the same power source. That solved my problem.

Installing a new car radio

if you have a wiring harness al the wires are color coded to match the after market radios colors. the yellow constant wire goes to 12 volt or battery wire. the accessory wire would be the red wire that is the switched 12 volts. the remote is for the factory amp or an aftermarket amp which turns on and off it would be the blue with white wire.
