In 1547 he was elected the Archbishop of Trier. As archbishop, John reorganised the finances of the archdiocese, and worked to improve the standards of his father's lands. In 1554 John succeeded his brother Anthony as Count of Isenburg-Grenzau.
John spent much of his time in his Westerwald residence of Montabaur, where he died in 1556. Johann V. von Isenburg auch Johann V. von Isenburg-Grenzau (* ca. 1507 – † 18 February 1556 in Montabaur) war von 1547 bis 1556 Erzbischof und Kurfürst von Trier.
