I recently bough a new stereo and fitted it and it workes fine. I could not connect the aerial for the radio as I did not have the connector. I bought the said connector and then plugged it in and it worked fine for a couple of minutes then went off. I have checked the fuse on the unit and in the fuse box and both are fine. I tried my old stereo and that does not power on either.
There is a power light on the new stereo and I can see that the power is getting through but the unit itself will not power up...

Remove radio from car dashboard, disconnect antenna and put about 2-3 m wire into it instead. Try to search for any radio signal - if it's finding something then aerial amp is broken. As far as I remember it's in aerial base and might need replacement.
The Vehicle should a stereo harness outlet socket on which the new stereo should be connected least requirign wiring individual cables. Once the new stereo has been acquire from retail, a compartible cable socket connection between the parts in the vehicle with the new stereo should simple fit in place. Inquire from the auto retailers about the most available compartible socket cables connection to suit a BMW as the defautl vehicle to a new stereo device. Versatile connection socket connector cables would snap in place as compartible to any stereos.
12 volt accessory or same wire that goes to red wire on stereo or cigarette lighter.
What is the current draw on amplified aerial ? or are you talking bout electric aerial(up and down automatically ?) If current draw is really low like 500 milliamp or so then hook her up to blue wire (remote output) on back of stereo but REMEMBER this is LOW current and only meant to switch on amps and raise electric aerials etc.If you think amp on aerial is too much for it then run the rem wire to a 12 volt relay and wire it so that when rem triggers and closes the gate will be connecting an accessory wire OR perm 12v wire to aerial power . That way aerial ONLY turns on(POWERS UP) when stereo is on as opposed to other way where aerial will be powered up every time car ign or acc is turned on regardless of whether the stereo is on or not.
There should be one that fits in your console. Try to get the exact dimension of the location where you'll insert the stereo on your console and check available stereo head units you would want to install in your car.
i think that the red wire is the acc wire but im not 100% on that because you havenot witten what model the radio is
anyways if it is the acc wire then connect that to a 12volt supply and see if it turns on all other wires must be connected though ecept for the blue wire which i think is the remote wire for a amplifier
u should have 4 holes in the facia of the cureent radio. use a pair of thin wire type rods in the holes this will release the radio , pull out and diconnect the lead which should be ISO and disconect the aerial and fitt the new unit no problems, if aerial is a black small connector you will need and adaptor, if not great. use the cage that comes with the kenwood or you may not get it out later. if the hole on your model is larger than the kenwood you need a facia plate to sort ths.
