You can use the head unit with no remote - that's just an accessory. As for the wires, the red is switched power (this gets wired in so that it only has power when the key is on - when the key is off, it turns off the radio). The yellow is constant 12v power (to maintain power to the head unit so that memory settings, treble/bass settings, and the clock are maintained when the vehicle is shut off).

    Yep, that was mislabeled. That one is either a trigger wire for a power antenna (to extend it when you turn the power on) or it can also be used as a remote turn-on lead for an amplifier.

Kenwood deck kdc-mp2035 im not sure about blue wire or yellow or red


Normally on Kenwood, blue is not usually used, it's for power antennae, make sure it's end is not bare though. Yellow would be to a continuous 12volt+, for memory. Red goes to accessory, (+12volt) where only power when key on, or in accessory position.

I bought a kenwood KDC-BT742U and I'm putting it in my 96 saturn. I connected all the speaker wires and I believe I ran into my problem with the ground wire (black) power wire (red) and a power control...


as far as i know there is no green with a white stripe on kenwoods, unless you are looking at a blue with white, which is an amplifier remote turn on wire. you should have a yellow wire which needs to be connected to a constant power source, as this wire keeps the radio preset and clock from losing memory.
