Question about Pioneer KEH-P4400 CD Changer

2 Answers

Can't remove KEH-P449 AM/FM/Cassette player

This unit is mounted flush at the navigation station in my 1997 Catalina 34 sailboat in a bracket and I can't get the unit to release from the bracket so that I can remove it and the bracket. I don't have a manual, so I can't read about the removal process.

I've gotten the left side of the unit to release (somehow) and tried to jiggle the unit from behind to free the right side, but the right side won't release. I didn't try to force it, since it could break of really get jammed. I didn't see any release buttons or knobs on the front panel that would have made releasing the unit obvious.

If I could release the frame/bracket behind the nav station wall and remove the bracket and unit together, that would be even better, since I want to mount a new ICOM 504 VHF radio next to it (I need access to the side of the VHF radio so that I can mount an installation bracket behind the nav station wall to hold the VHF radio in place).

Does all of that make sense, or should I send pictures of the set-up? thanks, Jon Arck

You need to use tools, like two big screwdrivers, and you push two of them at the same time to pull out the radio.

    Sorry, the instruction were for the radio. Check if there is a screw keeping the CD changer, don't force it.

This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.

But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.

I have a pioneer KEH-P4100RDS head unit which the display has gone dim on ( seemed to half go out then a day or so later go fully out ), everything else works so was wondering if it is possible to replace...


Another issue with detachable face units is the spring on the latch gets weak over time and the contacts will not be 100% reliable. Try cleaning the contacts between the unit and the faceplate and also make sure there is not debris in any of the latching mechanisms that could be causing the face to not sit totally flush on the receiver. By the way, cassette tapes...really?

Fuse


The 88 Monte came stock with am/fm or am/fm cassette so my guess is your head unit is after market, implying that there may be two in-line fuses on the units power leads

1) 12+ volt Un-switched constant feed (memory)
2) 12+ volt Switched feed (operation)

If you can not locate these fuses from under the dash, then you may need to remove the head unit to inspect the wires that connect to the rear for the in-line fuses.

When you reinstall the unit, be sure to make those in-line fuses accessible from under the dash.

Good luck
