You will select the source with the SRC button that you want to make the adjustment to (tuner, cd). Press and hold the Vol knob for 1-2seconds to enter Audio Setup. Each time you press the Vol knob it will switch between different items to adjust. You are going to repeatedly press it till you come up with "Loud" you will turn the Vol knob to change that from off to on. Once you have it turned on press and hold the Vol knob again for 1-2 seconds to save and exit Sudio setup. Info is located on pg9 of the manual under Audio Setup.

It wont turn on, how do i tell if its no good or just a fuse?

A blown fuse is more likely. Most cars have two fuses in the vehicle fuse box that can supply power to the stereo, and there's another fuse built into the back of the stereo unit itself. It's not uncommon for one or more of these fuses to blow when the battery is changed.

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood

<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

Hey there, i have a kenwood cd receiver kdc-mp142 and it doesnt work, i connected it directly to a battery (not in a car). When i connected it it sparked and shut off, the fuse is not blown, and idea why...

Hello... the wiring diagram is here...

Try to connect separates speakers( not the installed in the car) If your car stereo dont turn ON... then there is a short circuit in the audio power circuits.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.

the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

On my kenwood KAC-8105D mono 1000watt amp, the blue light is out and my subs are not getting any power? What does this mean? what does the blue light mean??

Well normally a light near the controls and or where you put the wires for subs is the continuous power. There is a wire from the back of your stereo that need to be ran to the amp. It tells the amp when to turn on and off so it doesnt drain your battery.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP435U radio in my car and when ever I turn in up kinda loud it will shut off and come back on on its own. Any idea why this is or how I can fix it?

The wattage of the speaker is higher than the required wattage of the stereo. The stereo cannot drive the speaker very well. Use an amplifier if you want to have a loud sounds. Or if you already have sound set-up make sure that you have a capacitor for your amplifiers and fuses to support the power input to your stereo.

Kenwood kvt-617 ain't working

Look for a small hole in the face plate. Put the head of a pen in it for a few seconds and re-set the system. This should work...
