Question about Kenwood KDC-MP5032 CD Player

1 Answer

No sound at all

I recently installed an amp to my kenwood, when i turn off the built in amp. all the sound goes away. I am able to switch between tuner sattelite radio and cd, but all sound is completely off.
I understand the main purpose of this switch is to able to use external amp with dat switch. Could anyone help me with this?

    ok..dat was helpful...but the the receiver and the amp are connected with RCA jacks, but the only ones i have hooked up are the rear speakers and sub. dat would mean if i turn off the built in amp i would be able to hear the front speakers, but i don't....anything else in mind?

IF im correct if you only have high outputs which are RCA jacks, between the tunner and the amp, rather then the low inputs which is the factory hornest that your car manufactor installed, when you power down the amp you should have no sound at all. id assume 99.9%

    Does the tunner have high output RCA jacks for a front amp, if so plug the amp into those imputs and see if you get sound from the front chanels if so, try to check you low input conector for lose pin conectors or a bad conection.

New kenwood kdc-mp242 installed turns on but no sound


The Blue/White wire, Brown wire, and Blue wire???? These don't have to be connected unless you are using a separate Power Amp...if you are, then the Blue/White wire needs to be used to switch on the power amp. Here is a link to Kenwood for your KDC-MP242 Instruction Manual. Reference page 16.

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

No sound after installation on a kenwood kdc 30-11


wellllll the most common cause of no sound it that there is a factory amplifier in the vehicle that is not turning on with the radio.. this is done by using the remote turn on wire from the aftermarket deck. or it could be a blown speaker that is shorting out the amp in the deck

Audio Output problems


Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output. Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
