I have a kenwood kdc-w7544u cd player and a mutant mtpk 300-a amplifier and i,m trying to connect it together in my vauvhall zafira. i have connected all the leads except one, the blue remote lead as...

The blue remote lead is the one that turns the amp on and off with the stereo. Without any power going to this the amp will not turn on. You have to either connect it to the remote lead coming out from the back of your CD player (should be a blue wire as well), or connect it to another power source that turns on and off when the car does (such as an ignition wire). Connecting it to the blue lead from the back of the radio is the preferable and much easier way to do it. Without connecting this remote turn on you will not be able to use the amplifier.

it sounds like you have the yellow wire connected to a switched power source, you need to find a constant hot power source to connect the yellow wire to.

You will need to hool up the blue and white wire will need to be connected to the amp turn on in the vehicle. Hopefully you are using an installation harness to make your job easier. The vehicle has a small amplifier in it. it does need to be turned on when you turn on the stereo.

I have a kenwood kdc-w3541 cd player and would like to wire it to a 4ch amp can you tell me how to wire it....thanks

Your kenwood only has preouts for a subwoofer. If you want to add the amp the amp will need to have some high inputs. If it does not then you will need to buy an accessory that will allow you to connect speakers and have rca outputs. From there yo will need two sets of rca jacks to run to the amplifier.

A kenwood KDC-322 stereo plays then cuts off.

Your problem is with the red and yellow wire going to the same wire. The red wire is supposed to be switched power meaning it only gets powered on then the car is powered on. The yellow wire is strictly for memory. The problem you may be having is the wire you have it hooked up to shuts down after a certain time with the car running. I suggest you wire your red wire to a switched accy and keep the yellow on a constant source. This should also help your car battery as well. I'm surprised it isn't dead yet.
