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! ! !!

Re: Door Opens then closes and Powers Off

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.

Kenwood KDC-319 CD Player Logo Problem with KDC-319 CD Player installed a kenwood kdc 319 in a 04 chevy malibu when i have car off i turn deck on an my cars dash board lights turn on Posted by A

I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.

04 expedition radio won't turn off after I take

Does it turn off when you open the driver side door? If so, that's normal. My car also keeps the radio on when the key is taken out of the ignition until I open the driver side door. If the driver side door is not opened then the radio will only stay on for 8 or 10 minutes though. If it's not turning off ever, even when you open the door, then I don't know what's wrong with it.

JVC KD-G245 - powers up, then turns itself off after 3 seconds

Try connecting battery and accessory wires as one instead of two seperate wires (yellow and red) had same problem and worked for me(it will not be neccesary to turn the key for the radio to work once this is done)

Citroen Saxo CD Player will not play when engine running

The car stereo has 2 +12V inputs: the constant batt input and the key in one.
So actually the stereo is always connected to +12V, even in standby.
When you turn your key, the key in input also starts, thus starting your stereo instantly.
When you turn the ignition on, the key in input is switched off for a couple of seconds, so that all the power goes to starting your engine.
After that key in input should be back on - this is your problem here.

One possible solution would be to cut this wire out, and split the RED battery +12V cable so that it enters in the key in input as well. Check wiring diagrams!.

Test this with cables out (without reinstalling the whole thing back in) and if it works.......leave it and put everything back in.

Only downside is, you have to turn off the radio by hand when you exit your car - or you could lose all battery power !

Unit opens and closes on its own

I think I got the second half of the solution for this problem. Please look at post "Unit powers down when motorized face opens" for a solution. Seems like we need to buy the ribbon that connects to the face plate to fix this problem.

Pioneer powers off when face plate opens.

My first guess would be that the ribbon cable between the flip face and the mother board has gone bad. This is a very, very common problem. I'd suspect that above everything else at this point.

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
