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?
JVC KD-AR880 w/ JVC-SIR1
tuner, KS-BTA200 bluetooth adapter,
CH-X1500 12-disc changer,
full PAC steering wheel controls, Polk db6500 (front component) & db650 (rear)
speakers. A Profile AP1040 Amp to make it all Rock
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
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
