Question about Kenwood KDC-MP208 Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

Wiring problems? I recently installed a kenwood cd receiver kdc-mp208 in a 2000 pontiac sunfire. I have not figured out for sure where to hook the orange and the orange with a white stripe wires to. I am pretty sure the orange wire is for memory and it just need to go to 12 vdc, not sure about the other though. The stereo works just fine but now I notice that I have no dash lights when the headlights are turned on. I unhooked the negative cable from the battery while installing this so I'm pretty sure I didn't short any wires out. Does this orange wire with a white stripe have something to do with this problem? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.

How to hook up a kdc-105 kenwood in a sunfire


There are 3 things you need to purchase for this install. 1) The factory spec install kit. 2) The factory spec additional wiring harness. 3) Antenna adapter.

Find the easied way to remove the plastic cowling around the radio and ac controls. Usually you can locate screws helping to retain the plastic dash parts. Be careful not to break the plastic dash by taking your time and looking over and over the part ofr connection hardware. Once you have located and removed all/if any screws, carefully pry out on the piece you are removing. There are often metal clips on the back of the piece that also help to retain the dash. Once that is removed, unbolt/unclip the factory stereo and slowly pull it out of the dash. Remove the factory harness from the backside of the factory stereo. DO NOT CUT THE HARNESS!! The wiring harness you have purchased is designed to plug and play into the factory harness. All you hae to do is color match the Kenwoods harness with the one you purchased. When wiring the two harnesses together use connectors **** a **** connectors, crimp connectors so forth and so on. If there is wiring you will not be using, take some electrical tape and tape the bare wire. We don't want a short. Once you are sure and have doubled checked that all the wiring is secure and matched, reverse the order of disassembly.

The plastic install kit should replace the factory radio size difference. Just remember to take the metal sleeve tha came with the kenwood and install it into the plastic install kit via the instructions provided. Slide the Aftermarket stereo into the sleeve you just installed. Then you are ready to make all the needed connections. Before you reassemble everything make sure to do a test run with your stereo. If all is well reassemble and jam on.

Kenwood kdc-415s


if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at Merle840@aol.com respectfully M.
