SOURCE: KDC 128 CD Player

It could be that the player is going into protect mode. This is normally due to a short in a speaker cable, or one or more of your speakers is blown. Try disconnecting all of your speaker cables at the speaker end and make sure the connectors don't touch. Power it up again and see if it stays on. Bear in mind you won't hear anything. If it powers up. Carefully plug each speaker back in. It will power off if you plug in the dud! If it still doesn't power up. disconnect all of your speaker cables at the player end. If it powers up this time one of your cables is shorted. Same as the speakers, plug one pair of wires in at a time to find the dud. If it's still switching off. It could be a blown circuit on the output stage of the amp. Here's a silly question. Does the player get hot? All this assumes that you have had this player working with these cables and speakers before. If not check that the speakers are the correct rating (Resistance in Ohms) for the player. And lastly here's where you can get a manual http://www.kenwoodusa.com/Support/Car_Files/#_

How do i install my alpine cd changer to a kenwood mp528 unit


It is unclear which Alpine CD changer you have and what output connections are available from it.

However your Kenwood unit has Aux input terminals at the back. With appropriate cable connectors you should be able to hook the two up. In the Kenwood you will have to select AUX in menu when playing CD changer. Download user manual for Kenwood from this site.

:I shorted out my kdc 128 head unit and i switched all the fuses but it still wont turn on. any ideas?


Firstly, the main wires from the KDC-128 you need to check are:

RED - this should be connected to the vehicle's +12v IGNITION wire.
YELLOW - this should be connected to the vehicle's =12v BATTERY wire.
EARTH - i) some tuners will only earth when the tuner itself, is screwed into the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket); ii) some tuners require the BLACK wire to be attached to the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket).

Secondly, if the above wires are connected correctly, then you should suspect the fuse on rear of the tuner has blown (even if it LOOKS ok). Replace and see what happens.

Thirdly, if all above are ok, then you have a short somewhere on the vehicle.

Got a new Kenwood KDC-128 car radio recently, fitted it but the radio presets would not stay when the ignition was turned off. Then it stopped working altogether and I noticed the 10amp fuse at the back...


you need to hook the yellow wire off the back of the radio up straight to the battery this keeps memory power to the head unit then wire the wires in color coded sequence red to red black to black so on and so forth if this doesnt fix it you might want to think about replacing head unit

The remote lead on the back of the radio should be a blue wire with a white stripe. If this wire is not present, then you can use an accessory lead in the car or the accessory lead (red) at the radio harness. Hope this is helpful.
