The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.

My Kenwood DNX5120 WHENT into protect mode


If your headunit is in protect mode, the most likely cause would be the speaker wires are shorting somewhere. The most likely place would be the connections behind the stereo with an inferior installation. The next most likely place would be at the speaker connections, especially if the speakers were recently replaced.

Kenwood car stereo is displaying Protect and wont come on


If ur kenwood stereo is going into protect mode, it is because one of ur speaker wires is shorting out. Make sure all of ur speaker wire connections are good, and then wrap them so they aren't grounding out against the chassis. This should solve ur problem.

How do I listen to music from my phone through my indash??


Most new model in-dash stereos have an auxiliary mini jack input. Connect a mini-jack cable to the auxiliary jack on your in-dash stereo (available at RadioShack or anywhere there are portable music player/smart phone accessories), and connect the other end to the headphone input on your iPhone/smartphone or player.

Change your stereo input to "aux" or "auxiliary" and Voila! Music will play from your car speakers.

, the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.

check all of your speakers

I have the kvt 617 I have great audio when listening to radio nut anythig else I only have subs it started doing it when i first got it and then it quit and know it is doing it again any idea?


High end kenwoods have a setting, where you can turn off the internal amp in the head unit, if the sub is the only thing that has an external amp hooked to it, and it is playing, that may be your problem. Also, if one of the speakers hooked directly to the Kenwood has a short, bad voice coil, or contacts touching metal, that can cause the amp in the Kenwood to go into protect, and you will loose sound to all the speakers.

Protect mode??


Check your speaker wire and terminals at the speaker, it's shorting. The receiver goes into protection to keep from causing damage to itself.
