Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have recently purchased an rx8, but the previous owner had fitted an after market stereo which he took with him. I have 2 problems, i have purchased a double din system which i tried to fit. I was able to get power to the system but no sound was coming through the speakers, do i need an adapter so that the speakers will work? Also there appears to be no power to the built in satnav. Any ideas on what lead may have been pulled? Kev

If the unit was installed professionally no wire's will have been cut from factory harness. Yes you would need an aftermarket adapting harness so your speakers will work . Vehicle may also be equipped with a stock amp. be sure to hook remote wire on harness to head unit.

I just purchased a used motorhome that has a Kenwood KDC-MPV7019/MPV619 receiver. The previous owner did not provide the security code for the unit. How can I reset the code?

You will have to contact the previous owner to get the code otherwise you will have to buy a new stereo. There is a possibilty of being able to contact kenwood they might be able to reset it but it costs about 60 dollars to do so. I'm sorry..

How to install a radio ina 93 suburban

you need at least to purchase the correct wireing harness for the make and year of your vehicle. you will have to make the proper connections from the radio to the wire harness. the wire harness should plug into the existing harness in the vehicle, provided no previous owner has cut it. you should also be able to find a installation kit for your vehilcle make and model. contact a local car stereo shop and they can put you on the right parts.

Battery went flat now no radio. The Motor vehicle Dealers where I purchased this second hand *** import have no record of the code to unlock the radio. My Honda is a 2005 Honda Fit

If the dealer cannot help then you must contact the support site of Honda to help you out.
Only if these codes are set the radio will work. Please check to see if the owners manual is market with these codes as most often dealers put them in. Also check the service centre where the car was serviced periodically.

My stereo wont save settings and resets every time i turn off car

Check the backup power source (usually a yellow wire) on the stereo wiring harness. (If it is an after market stereo.)

Check the fuse box(s) for an open fuse it's probably marked on the fuse box or in the owners manual. (both factory and after market radios)

No sound from car stereo

it sounds like some sort of overload causing the stereo to switch off to stop damage. Have you checked that you have the correct amp fuse installed in your fusebox?. Is there an in-line fuse on the live feed wire of the stereo? I suspect either too much power is going to it or that the unit itself has developed a fault.

Purchased my son a second hand Mazda 626. Its fitted with a Philips Logic Control radio Philips No CW077A or Fujitsu Ten No CE-3434TY1. I obtained all the owners manuals with the vehicle but unfortunately...

Unless changed cby the owner it should be the last 4 digits of the VIN number which can be read from the label on the driver's door panel. If it has been changed, I'm afraid there is no way to retrieve it unless you can contact the previous owner.

I forgot the raio code for my 2001 boxster. after installing a new battery recently, i must key in the 4 digit radio code to get the stereo to work.

I found a number preceeded by an R written on a label on the insdie of the hood [it was hand written by the previous owner or the dealer, I'm not sure]. The label also contained the engine code, the paint number, and a few other numbers. Anyway, I tried the number and it worked!
