Question about Kenwood KDC-MPV8025 CD Player

1 Answer

Door Opens then closes and Powers Off

Radio has been working fine for quite a while. But, now, when the ignition key is turned (to start the car) nothing happens to the radio. The 'manual' method to turn the radio on will not do anything. If the 'Power Button' is depressed, the radio will act like it is powering up - opening the door.....but after a few seconds it closes the door and powers off. I have verified all needed voltages and grounds. ANY Assistance will be GREATLY Appreciated! ! !!

Try holding down BUTTON [5], then press the RESET button (you'll need a ballpen between the AUTO and SCRL buttons). This worked on the KDC-MP825 (very similar to the MPV8025) when my wife had the same problem this month.

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.

Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

The car is parked, turned off, and the doors locked. Came outside this morning and the radio was on with no key in the ignition. What would cause the radio to run without a key in the ignition?

The conveience delay module may have a problem if equipped. It is designed to operate some of the features with the ignition turned off( radio,wipers,power windows etc) until the driver opens the door and power is then cut to these features.

My ford radio comes on when I open the door no key in ignition

Call Ford, it might be something that can be set to do that. Many cars have features that can be set up in that way. Other than that I have no idea? Good luck.

AAA advised me to open and close door with key

Yes. Because the security system was "set". You need the code to unlock the security system for the radio. It is like that for theft pruposes. Best bet is to go to the dealership to have them reset it or figure out how to get the code for your radio.

I have a 1996 vw jetta and i turn off the ignition, remove the key and still have power to the radio and door sensor.

Some cars allow power to the radio, etc. even after the key is turned off and taken out of the ignition. If everything turns off when the door opens, then it is most likely normal for your car. I know the newer VW Jetta's do this.

Sub display screen

It's usually the flexible pcb that connects the fascia to the main board that needs replacing, because the fascia opens and closes each time the ignition is turned on and off the connector flexes and eventually some of it snaps, sometimes if you pop the trim off you can see the snapped pcb on the bottom right hand side of your radio
