Installing kenwood kdc-mp238 in a 2001 dodge ram 2500 quad cab

I purchased above radio, I bought a harness to plug to stock plugs, then wired to radio. Radio comes on, but no sound at all is coming out, did I get wrong harness?, or cross something? Is there something I need to do to set radio up? I disabled display mode, I think I cleared code lock, Im at a loss. Thanks for any help

    Same radio, different vechicle. Bought the correct harness; matches colors and old diagram on old radio just fine. All functions on the MP238 seem to work but there is no sound at all; am/fm or CD source.

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

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

Trying to install and rewire the kenwood KDC-MP149 cd player into my 1997 lancer. having problems matching up the wire colours thanks


I recommend you purchase a wiring harness. This will make the install much easier. You can match up the wires of the radio and the harness with ease (since all aftermarket radios have standardized color coding for the wires). You vehicle wires will never match the radio, unless it's stock. You can purchase one at www.crutchfield.com Hope this helps.

I have a 98 dodge ram 2500 I installed a aftermarket radio and have power but no sound please help


Sounds like you hooked the wires up wrong. Crutchfeild.com sells the direct plugs that go from the deck to the stock wiring harness. Its a good investment. But check your wires.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:
1994 Buick Century Car Stereo Wiring Schematic
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Yellow
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Amplifier Location: N/A
Car Audio Front Speakers Size: 4′ x 6′
Car Audio Front Speakers Location: Dash
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Car Audio Rear Speakers Size: 6′ x 9′
Car Audio Rear Speakers Location: Rear Deck
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

What wiring harness do I need that works 1996 Toyota Tacoma


Hello shonk_patric,

You'll have to go to Kenwood or to the audio dealer where you purchased the receiver if you do not have the harness that plugs into the back of the radio.

One vehicle specific aftermarket harness for a '96 Tacoma is the Metra 70-1761 available here at Crutchfield.

Hope this helps.
