Installing aftermarket Kenwood stereo on 1991 Subaru Legacy. The subaru stock wiring does not have a red ignition wire. Can i simply connect the kenwood ignition wire to the Accessory +12v (Yellow/red)?...


Hi, according to my source, there should be an accessory wire that is blue with a yellow stripe. If your is yellow/red, that's fine. You actually should prefer an accessory wire to an ignition wire as there may be less static on the accessory wire. Just make sure the wire does not have power when the key is off. Don't use the illumination wires--they are not needed for the aftermarket head unit and should be taped off.

2 problems, what are the red and yellow wires on a Kenwood kdc-mp2028? and can you install a used kenwood without the remote?


You can use the head unit with no remote - that's just an accessory. As for the wires, the red is switched power (this gets wired in so that it only has power when the key is on - when the key is off, it turns off the radio). The yellow is constant 12v power (to maintain power to the head unit so that memory settings, treble/bass settings, and the clock are maintained when the vehicle is shut off).

Kenwood KDC-W3041 does not save changed settings


hi,

It seems as if there's no permanent live to the memory.
If your swap over the black and yellow cables [link black to yellow, and yellow to black], this should solve the problem.

Hope that helps.

To my knowledge most Kenwood head units uses the following wiring/color scheme:
Yellow - always on B+12VDC such as the positive terminal of the battery;
Red - switched B+12VDC such as the ACC terminal of the IGN switch;
Black - Ground/chassis;
Pink - not available
Brown - mobile phone mute
Blue - power antenna
Blue / White - remote trigger for external device
Pink / Black - external amplifier control wire
Gray - Front Right +
Gray / White - Front Right -
White - Front Left +
White / White - Front Left -
Purple - Rear Right +
Purple / White - Rear Right -
Green - Rear Left +
Green / White - Rear Left -

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.
