Check your car battery (either at a service station or by checking it's voltage if you have a voltmeter). The radio's anti-theft is triggering. This triggers when the battery has been disconnected; but if the voltage goes down (likely when you start your car), the radio may trigger the power disconnected alarm.

    BTW, Your battery is 12v but really registers 13.8v when good and could go higher when the car is running. If it is reading less than 10v when nothing is on, that's a bad sign. Also, check all the cells for fluid. Fill as necessary with distilled water. Often a battery fails on one bad cell. This cell will discharge faster than the others. It's hard to check this without a hydrometer, but a service station will be able to. A symptom may be low battery voltage right after starting your car.

CD Changer will not load disc. Cycles through all 6 discs then shows code 2. The unit is not damaged and disc holder loads as normal. tried a light pressure and a harder pressure when loading, result is...


Try the following

Step 1. You need a kenwood remote that has aphone style keypad(there are many of them they have numbers and letters like a phone pad)

Step2. Turn your radio on.... it will say ENTER CODE---- and look like this CODE----

Step3. Press and hold the DISP button and the volume up button at the same time for about 4 to 5 seconds, if you did this right you will be confirmed with a beep and the screen will change from CODE---- to CODE.

Step4. Your halfway there once you get to this far... now all you have to do is enter KCAR with the remote like your texting on a cellphone

Step5. To do this press the number 5 button, you will notice that a J will appear on the screen so just press it again and aK will appear to enter the K press the track forward button >>, then press the 2 for C and so on and so on til you spell KCAR...

The 6th and final step... press the track forward button once more to enter the code and there you have it

let me know if this does or doesn't work

My cable tv remote will turn this unit on with the codes supplied for the remote. But the remote will not control the volume or turn the unit off. Is there another code, or is this a problem with the cable...


There has to be another code and when you find it you will probably have to "lock" your remotes volume control to your audio device not the cable box (set-up that way from cable co) once you do that the cable box will be controlled from the remote(channels) and the audio will be controlled by your receiver from the same remote without even having to switch functions.. ask your cable company for a setup guide for your remote they will probably have a copy online.

The radio is turning off and there is a message: system protect.


The first thing you need to do is dis-connect all the speakers and then turn the unit back on. If it stays on and does not give the same error message, you may just have a bad speaker.

You can then plug one speaker back in at a time, turning the unit off in between each speaker check. Once the unit goes into system protect you have just found the bad speaker.

If the receiver once again goes into system protect without any speakers connected, you have an internal amplifier problem. That is something that would need to fixed by a professional audio technician.

If you have some experience with electronics and good soldering skills, I can help you troubleshoot this receiver. But if not, it is a very bad idea. You can easily cause even more problems than you started with. Even some very serious problems.

Let me know if this is helpful to you, and a good rating is always appreciated if it was.

If you need more help feel free to ask..

How can I reprogram Nissan pulsar car radio a battery change which has deleted memory? panel shows error message only ERR.


You will need to turn the ignition on (do not start the car) turn on the radio and leave it on for anywhere between 1 - 3hrs untill it prompts you for a code.

There is a internal timer which adds time depending on how many times the code is entered wrongly.

Do not start the car, or turn off the ignition or radio during the 1 - 3 hr period.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

1995 V.W PASSAT


Hi,

If I understand your post right, you have the code but need the procedure on how to input/enter it into the radio. To my understanding, a 1995 Volkswagen Passat would have a non-BOSE unit with or without CD changer controls. It was a premium sound system with anti-theft coding.

Pls try:
1. Power the radio ON till "SAFE" is displayed;
2. Press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons simultaneously till display shows "1000". (In some versions, it is the seek and the two scan buttons);
3. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons;
4. Enter your security code using the first four station buttons on the radio;
5. The first button changes the first number of the four digit code;
6. The second button changes the second number and so on and so forth;
7. Once the proper code has been entered press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold until the radio accepts the code;
8. You have two tries before the system will lock you out for an hour;
9. Should you happen to have a three digit code, pls make the first digit a zero;
10. The first digit can only be 1 or 0 (the 0 will not show up so for a zero, push the button until the 1 disappears).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
