How do I change the radio out in my 1994 dodge Sat


Disconnect the negative battery cable from the Dodge battery. The negative cable connects the battery to the frame of the vehicle. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the cable'c clamp. Remove the clamp from the negative battery lead post.


Remove the dash trim panel that surrounds the stereo and climate control knobs, using a trim panel removal tool. Start at the bottom of the trim and work the tool around the perimeter until the panel is completely removed.


Remove the screws on either side of the Dodge stereo mounting bracket with a Phillips-head screwdriver.


Pull the stereo unit from the dash mounting bracket. Pull the stereo far enough to reach the wiring connections at the rear of the deck.


Disconnect the wire groups from the back of the factory stereo. There are four groups, for the antenna, power supply, speakers, and amplifier. Grab the groups by the plastic wire binders, not the wires themselves.


Reconnect the negative battery cable to operate the vehicle or any electrical components. Place the negative cable clamp around the negative lead. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to tighten the clamp until the clamp cannot be moved around the lead by hand.

Make sure your testing the right wires here is the wiring code..

Keep in mind you should have your battery unplugged while wiring your radio so prevent damage to your electric system.

Kenwood kdc-mp239 car stereo overheating

Did you change the speakers, usually this happen because of the Ohms. Let me explain you, The factory radios are usally 8 Ohms and must of the aftermarket speakers are 4 Ohms or less so if you put 4 Ohms in a radio designed to work with 8 Ohms of coures is going to get hot first and them you burn it out.

Need to find the antenna connection into the factory radio on 99 chevy suburban

Pull the dash bezel off, lower the sterring wheel, apply parking brake, lower gear shift to 1st - apply gentle pressure and MAKE SURE there are no screws by cup holder. You will see the stereo and how it is mounted. That either has small bolts 5/16 or 2 snap clips that you depress and pull forward. Just be gentle but firm and you will be fine. You will also need 2 antenna adaptors, just call any stereo shop and they can help you with that.

Aftermarket Stereo connection

hi there
if you matched all the wires from the harness to the kenwood deck and its not working don't worry you just missed the last step........(all wires attached that a colour coded connected)
simply turn your car on the front of the kenwood deck there is a SOURCE button with all units it could be a (S, SRC, Power) hold the source button down till your kenwood unit powers up ..........if your unit still doesn't work check the fuse on back of kenwood unit should be a 10a fuse (blue) if the fuse is fine put the unit back in check the fuse panel on driver side dash with the door open you will see this panel pull it off (some describe the fuse panel as looking like an air vent but its not its a handle to open) now on the panel that you just pulled off there is a fuse diagram on the inside look at it find radio fuse it will be a (blue fuse) located in the top row of fuses check it if blown replace and unit should work.............if this doesn't solve the issue than its a (sneaky) fuse not to many people know about if you pop the hood of your car there is a black plastic panel located just below the battery pins and just above the driver head light (usually black box with yellow writing on this there are mini fuses check all of them do not touch the black relays in there just the small tiny fuses the fuse you will look at should be yellow 20a (this fuse is closest to engine and comes after the abs relay if you look inside the lid you took off it will have fuse locations cant remember which one it is for sure but check see if your kenwood unit powers up if not the last option is to ground to the black wire from back of kenwood unit to metal frame.............this last part is also done if your unit does power on but your car lights don't work if this happens ground the kenwood unit to the frame of car and open up fuse panel on driver side dash replace the blown fuse for lights or radio (make sure the kenwood unit is grounded to the frame before replacing the fuse in dash panel............if this doesnt help you than i would assume the kenwood deck needs to be repaired by kenwood.......
good luck
hope i was able to help and sorry this list is so long
