You might want to make sure you are getting power to the red wire. The radio will accept and eject cd's if power is going to the yellow wire only. Both wires have to have 12v going to them before the radio will work properly.
Just plug the cord into the front of the cd player where it says "AUX" and then plug the other end of the cord into the headphone / line out jack on any ipod or mp3 player then select "AUX" instead of CD and the sound will come through the system
once you have the station you want to listen to on the radio press and hold one of the buttons along the bottom of the stereos face for a few seconds the screen should flash for a second or two or it should beep as well to indicate its saved it.
if when you turn the ignition off and then turn it back on the stereo has forgotten the station you programmed you need to remove the stereo from the car and check the wiring at the back of the unit. most of them have a red and yellow wire that are joined by metal push fit connectors, swap these two over and it will then remember the station for you.
the red wire is the switched power lead from the ignition and the yellow lead is a constant live feed for it to remember your settings, if these are round the wrong way it will keep forgetting radio stations you program until you switch them over.
check your "constant power" (battery power) lead with a meter and make sure it's got 12v dc power with the key "out" of the ignition. If there's no power check the vehicles fuse and the radio fuse. Hope this helps
If you dont have an MP3 or Ipod input, then the best way is to buy an FM transmitter. This device plugs into your cigarette lighter and when connected to the Ipod will transmit the signal to the stereo unit. this device is actually like a micro radio station that you have to tune in on the Kenwood. These units are available at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or online at Ebay, and Amazon.
The remote lead on the back of the radio should be a blue wire with a white stripe. If this wire is not present, then you can use an accessory lead in the car or the accessory lead (red) at the radio harness. Hope this is helpful.
The remote turn on lead for the subwoofer amplifier has been connected to the power antenna lead (solid blue) of the radio. It just needs to be connected to the radios amplifier turn on lead (blue with white stripe).
To be honest, I can't find one spec of info on that stereo on the internet. It's possible the DIN connection you see is for controlling a CD changer. If so, it's possible you can use either this cable or this cable to turn it into an AUX input. But without a manual or anything, it's hard to know for sure. You have to contact Kenwood.
