View Full Version : JVC 'KD-SC500' CD/MP3 head unit

08-16-2004, 05:59 PM
I installed this head unit myself and it never remembers my stations :crap:. I reset the hu and reset the stations. It will remember them if i start up the car for like 5 minutes after i set them but if i let it sit for a while then it will forget my stations and it wont play the last song i was on in a cd. :bawling:

BTW I had to run my own constant 12v in a fusebox under the hood to the hu for it to work in the first place because my stock reciever was a tape player and it didnt have the constant power.

can anyone tell me what it might be that makes my hu forget my stations after my car is off for a while?

ill probably end up calling jvc but i wanted to see if any of u knew first :tomatofa:

mmm. my KD SH55 remembers it all. Call JVC and see if its a faulty unit.
Mine had an error code before but now it works just dandy!

I can guess at what it is but can't say which wire it is. It is probably the memory wire that you haven't conected or have connected just to something that goes off with the car off. For that one you need something that goes straight from the battery. Check the instructions for which wire is the memory because I really can't tell.

Guess I was way off then.

1. is the clock reset also
2. if it is, its your "home made" constant power lead.

that must be it then... instead of running directly to the battery i was trying to run it to a fuse under my hood instead

Thanks for the useless post... seeing as how i already bought and installed my HU :verymad:

well, that was just for him dude..... hopefully you have good luck with your HU. I know we dont have the same one, but i must say, my HU works great, and was inexpensive
