Question about Dual XDM6825 CD/MP3/WMA Player

XDM6825 Not Playing MP3s in Stereo

I recently got and installed a Dual XDM6825 In-Dash Reciever. Everything went OK with the install, but when I try and play an MP3 CD, sound usually only comes out of the left side. Occasionally, it will come out of both sides, but I haven't figured out what causes it to start working properly. I verified that the CDs I made did in fact contain stereo MP3s. I also know that the wiring is good because whenever it is in Tuner or Aux mode, it comes out of all the speakers. Thanks in Advance, Mike

Cd reciever how to install

There is one wire that connects to your ignition switch so the main stereo turns off when you turn your car off. If the radio still plays after you have turn your car off then you have your stereo directly feeding off the battery.

Where do i hook the blue wire up to on a dual xhdr6435 into the dash

Hi, the blue wire is used to turn on a separate amplifier or to raise the antenna. If you don't have a telescoping antenna or amplifier, just tape off the blue wire and leave it hanging behind the head unit. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Installed my dual xdm6825 into a 1998 honda passport. NO POWER. everything looks like it is connected the right way but still have no power. the only way power comes on is if both 12v (red and yellow)...

I suspect you may have a blown fuse. Either the red or yellow wire from your dash board should have power (+12 DC volts or greater) all the time relative to chassis ground, which should be the black wire. Use a voltmeter to measure this. The other wire (red or yellow) should only have power (+12 DC volts or greater) when the car is turned on or the key is turned to the Aux position. Use the voltmeter to measure this also. If one of these wires doesn't measure correctly you most likely have a blown a fuse. I think the Honda Passport has 2 fuse boxes. If you open the driver's door I believe you will see a panel for one fuse box on the left side of the dashboard. I believe the other fuse box is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Fuse boxes sometimes have a labeled diagram on their cover or you may be able to find a diagram in your owner's manual. Look for fuses labeled radio or dash. You should be able to easily pull them out with a pair of needle nose pliers. If you look carefully at them you can usually tell if they're blown because the wire inside will look broken. Replace any burnt out fuses with new fuses rated at the same current value. The current rating of the fuse is usually written on the outside and it will generally be a number like 10, 15, or 20. Most of the time the fuses are color coded by current rating. You can buy new fuses at any auto parts store, or if you're lucky there will be a few spare fuses inside the fuse box. I hope this advice helps you out.

No volume

What kind of vehicle are you installing it in. Some vehicle have factory amps that have a remote wire. These amps will not power up until the remote wire is connected. This may be your problem.

Protect mode Kenwood KDC MP438U in dash reciever

Anytime there is a short circuit or your battery down low enough you will recieve this signal. If you press the little "reset button" using a small pin or screwdriver your unit should reboot without the "PROTECT" signal. If seeing this "PROTECT" sign is a result of jumping your car, this will fix it. If the signal persists, then there is still a short circuit and you need to check your connection with the battery. Most likely it is touching the chasis or some othere metal.
