Jvc receiver doesn't turn on

This question is not answered

I have a jvc ar880 car stereo  installed in my 2007 Passat. It's been installed since about 2010 and all has been working great. Suddenly, this morning it won't turn on when I start the car. Therefore, I guess I am gonna have to diagnose the issue.

One simple thing I plan to do is pull the head unit out and swap it back with the factory radio. If this factory radio works, then I would think something is going on with the main jvc head unit

The only other issue I am thinking of checking is the car's fuse for the radio. Any other suggestions on how to diagnose this power issue and/or what may be going on here?

  • Should also be a fuse on back of the headunit.

  • Well, it looks like it was an easy fix. Pulled the JVC head unit and for some reason, its fuse was slightly loose. Pushed it in and WALLAAA!!   All is good again
