I just bought a new stereo (JVC KW-R900BT) and after sewing everything back up, the key-less entry and the heated seats will not work. I am certain that the wires to those were on one of the three wiring harnesses I pulled off the OEM stereo. Since there is no labeling for wires, I do not know which ones need to be wired back in. I also don't know where they actually need to be added back in. Help! (It doesn't have the infinity system.)

Neither one has anything to do with the audio system...I'd suggest checking the fuses for a blown one and also the wiring harnesses in the area of the radio behind the dash. You may have pulled one loose.
If it's a fuse it may be one that is labeled for a totally different circuit. So check them ALL.

Dave,

Thanks for the advice. That did the trick. I had one blown fuse that turned mostly everything back on. I still have a few other things that don't work...keyless entry, power locks when the vehicle isn't on and the bell when the key is put into the ignition or the door(s) is/are open. I suppose that will be another fuse likely.

Look for a fuse named "ROOM"...It provides backup power when the ignition is OFF.. It is also used to provide "memory" for the radio. Get the connection??
All three are powered 24/7 (or not if the fuse is blown).
This fuse "might" be named differently but is usually the only COLORED one.

Dave,

They did not label the fuses and they are several different colors rather than just all one color with an off color for the "room" fuse. I did check through them all though and found the other blown fuse. Everything works again. Thanks!
