20 Most Recent JVC Arsenal KD-AR5000 CD Player Questions & Answers

After looking up your unit's info, I found that the aux input is on the rear of the unit. Pull the unit from the dash, being careful not to disconnect any wires (sometimes the antenna adapter wire is too short and must be disconnected to work behind the unit. Just don't forget to reconnect it before putting the unit back in place). Plug one end of a 3.5mm aux cable into the aux input on the rear of the unit and feed the other end thru the hole where the unit sits in the dash and out the side of the center of the dash to either the driver or passenger footwell. Replace the head unit and GENTLY pull the rest of the slack out of the aux cable but not so hard that you disconnect it from the head unit. You can tuck any excess aux cable up under the side of the console where the plastic meets the carpet, & if you wanted to get really fancy, you could drill a slot in the storage area of the console big enough to fit the cable, but small enough so the end doesn't fall through so you could plug your phone in and hide it all in the console out of sight. Then just switch the source on the unit to aux and enjoy!

Yes the motor will need to be replaced and its kinda difficult to do I would leave it to a expert tech. Around $85 bucks and a lot of patients would fix this with a expert tech in this type of repair.

Since all the rest seem to work that is what it is is the motor ether jammed or burned out.

thanks hope the information helps good luck with the unit please do click the accept button for my efforts.

Do you also lose your clock and radio station presets?

Most car harnesses will correspond by Colour thus look out for an orange Colour from the pre-installed/ pre-selected wires.
Now the issue is, not all cars come with such wires pre-selected and installed ie bunched up with the Audio cluster, for such, you need to identify the wire yourself that connects to the light switch on your dash board and tap into it.

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.

Press the "Hour" button (or right arrow button) to set the first and second digits of the code. Release the button once the four-digit code is accurately displayed. Press the "Mode" button to lock in the code you set. Turn the stereo deck on by pressing the "Source" or "Power" button to complete the reset.

Most likely, your engine might not be producing the correct amount of voltage to your stereo system. It's most likely being over worked, or even your CD player needs to be cleaned. If it's the latter, try a quick burst of air duster.

Not sure if this will help any other owners since my answer is 4 years late, but this is what I found from another user. Apparently if you mess with the wiring too often, it goes in a safe mode which you need to do some button trickery to unlock the device from it's safe mode. These are the Steps.
1.Disconnect power supply
2.Press [MENU] and [UP arrow] buttons and keep holding.
3. While holding the buttons [MENU] / [UP arrow], connect the power plug again
A. The display will show "DC ERR"
*** if it still shows "Chk wiring ..." repeat the steps above until you get "DC ERR."
4. Press [UP arrow]; the display shows "DC1 ERR"
a. Press and hold [UP arrow] and it will show "DC1 OK"
5. Press [Down arrow], the screen will show "DC2"
a. Press and hold [DOWN arrow] and the display will show "DC2 0"
6. Disconnect the power from the back of the unit.
7. Remove the Face Unit.
8. Reconnect the power from the back.
9. Use a sharp object and press the [RESET] hole for 3 seconds and release.
10. Reinstall the face unit and turn on the power.

Pairing Bluetooth Devices
Posters often ask "How do I pair my Bluetooth ???" Insert whatever device you have at the question marks.

Generally, you need to read the instructions for the camera, headset, speakers or whatever the Bluetooth device is.

Roughly speaking though.

Settings - Bluetooth - Search, on the Android, iPhone, Windows phone whatever.

With camera, speaker, headphones or whatever the Bluetooth device is, you have to press a button on that device to send out the signal. On my Bowers and Wilkins T6 Speakers, there is a button on the top with the Bluetooth symbol on it. This is the part people usually don't do and ask for advice, thinking it will do this automatically.

When the Android device recognises it, click Pair, and if it asks for a code, the Default is '0000', (four zeros, no quotes).
