Chances are if you got it from ebay there are going to be missin plugs for that unit.....and if i had to guess the two wires would be power (12v) n ground which should be red and black but differs on different cars.

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.

As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).

So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.

And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !


Hope this helps..

Cheers,

Scott

How to integrate the pioneer deh-1300mp into a 96 Dodge 2500 Centurion diesel truck to replace a radio/cassette player.


The simplest way to swap the stock radio out for the cassette player would be to go to a radioshack or bestbuy, normally they will carry a double-din to single-din adapter so that the smaller after market radio fits into the existing location snugly. They usually also carry a wiring harness adapter that will plug right into your dodges existing harness and you can just wire nut or solder & shrink wrap the adapter to the pioneers harness, saves a lot of time and insures everything is where it needs to be.
Normally you can get both adapters for under $15, hope this is helps.

How do i hook up my mp3 player to this car cd player


The only way to play an mp3 player through this head unit is through an adapter. You will need to go to Best Buy or some electronics store and buy a cd-to-cassette adapter. You just plug the adapter into the mp3 player's headphone jack and insert the cassette into the head unit. Let the cassette play and play your music through the mp3 player and boom, you have a mp3-capable head unit.

I have a VW Polo (2005) with a Beta radio cassette head unit. A tape has become stuck inside the unit. Pressing the FF/FR buttons to eject opens the flap full and lifts the tape, but it does not move out...


If you are not worried about breaking any thing I have always used needle nose pliers, when the tape is lifted pull it out with the pliers, don't put the tape back in.

Alpine CDA 7878R - Hi Temp - won't play disc


Does it play the tuner but not the CD?

If it so, the problem is directly related to the CD deck. If not, the problem could be a sensor or any number of other components that may have overheated.

Try to reset the unit. Most of the time this error is an electrical problem not fixable by the end user. But it is worth trying to reset the microprocessor and see if that helps.

Here is a diagram of where the reset button is at. Press it in with the tip of an ink pen or paperclick, whatever you have that will fit into the little hole. Just hold it in a couple of seconds. Be advised that when yo reset the unit, you will loose all things in memory like the correct time, preset radio stations ect.

If this does not help you will need to have it checked out by a good repair center. These Alpine radios are very good radios and are worth getting fixed unless the estimate is close to what you paid for it.

good luck, I hope this helps. if so, a good rating would really be appreciated. You can always ask me for more help if you need it. I have been repairing car and home audio equipment for over 17 years.
