Re: Kenwood kdc-mp528 amp/speaker problem???

This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.

I have a kenwood kdc bt43u and transferred it, with my amp and rear speakers, to an identical vehicle. It all works fine until i use bluetooth. sound only comes from the front factory fitted speakers

Not quite sure what you are saying here but I am going to take a stab. If I am filling in the gaps but are the rear speakers wireless? If this is the case then they are not paired with the speakers but with your receiver deck. You will need to pair the speakers as well before it will play through them.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?

You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:

Some decks only give one pair of pre outs. Most 4 channel amps can use just a 2 channel input and feed the other 2 channels by the flip of an input selection switch. I recomend a 4 channel amp if you want to power front and rear speakers and be able to set the gains to blend properly, or you can run all 4 speakers at a 2 ohm stereo on 2 channels and run a sub on the remaining r channels. It just depends on how you want the setup to be nd to how much control you want. Let me know.

HI Ramo,

I appears to be impossible to put in a security code after the owner sets one. If you purchased this radio from someone and it is used, you need to get the code from the original owner.
Tha owners manual is at this URL

Good luck dude.

What the heck

all the kenwood units have a remote wire and its either blue or blue with a white trace, if you want to test it use a multimeter and not a test lamp as the current output is miliamps and you may damage the unit
