When I installed this player into my 1987 ford bronco and powered it up the display said <<>> and then I got nothing.....not even speaker sound. What, if anything,did I do wrong......the fuse is good but it is a 20A and not a 15A would that make a difference?
Possibly, But unlikely in my expierence. try taking the Radio, Twist the Red and Yellow wires on the harness together and ground the balck wire and touch the Combined Red and yellow agains the Positive battery terminal, This should power the unit on and let you know if it is functional. If that works then you can look at the wiring in the bronco to ensure you have the constand power, and the Accessory power working Correctly. I would try to replace the fuse with the correct amp. fuse first though.

Check your grounds! If you used any "scotch-locks" wire connectors (the kind that crimp to an existing wire to hook up another) get rid of them. have had multiple customers with issues with thoes things. remember the basic electrical circuit needs both power and ground to opperate correctly. Good luck!
I've had GREAT success by resetting the changer. Try unpluging the changer with the power ON, wait a few, then plug back in. It's not hard to remove. Can I assume that you did NOT misload or install any CD' upside down? If not, then proceed with a reset. Can you eject the magazine? If so, proceed with reset. If you can NOT eject the magazine, then you will need to "open up the can" and do a manual eject with power assist by moving the gears while pushing the eject button. Sounds like a lot, but for me it's easy. Remember patience!!
The protection function is activated when the speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle.
Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. (The reset button is that little pinhole button below and to the right of the volume control).
If you do this and the "PROTECT" code doesn't disappear, you'll have to consult a service center. Further, if you had this professionally installed, they should be obligated to fix the issue for you (hopefully).
I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
