I know I have seen this somewhere but searching did not reveal the answer. I'm installing a JVC KD-AHD59 AM/FM/CD stereo and since this is my first time to do this kind of installation I need help translating the automobile installation instructions into boat modified instructions.
The wiring harness
has 13 wires. 8 are for speakers, pretty straight forward.
The remaing 5 are:
Black - Ground
Yellow - To live terminal in fuse block bypassing ignition switch (constant 12v)
Red - to an accessory terminal in the fuse block
Blue with white stripe - to remote lead of other equipment or automatic antenna.
Orange - To car light control switch.
The Black and Yellow are 16 ga. All others are 18 or 20 ga.
My plan is to connect the BLACK to the main negative bussbar, YELLOW to the main positive bussbar with a dedicated fused circuit breaker. I'm not interested at this time in using the FM channel presets so will leave the RED disconnected. Also I will not be using other equipment and wil leave the BLUE WITH WHITE STRIPE disconnected.
So, what do I do with the ORANGE? If I leave it disconnected will I have lights
when I turn on the circuit and no lights
when I turn off the circuit?
I will appreciate your help
