Re: NAME OF CABLE
It is a flexible ribbon cable and partstore.com should have a replacement. The part number is probably 178326811 which is an 11 wire flat cable and cost a little over $8 at partstore.com They also list another cable that has 6 wires for that unit and is part number 182364111 for about $3, but I don't think that is the one. Good luck.

I also created a tutorial on fixing faceplates with 2R7 resistors (refer to my tip).
But, your unit will have a different chassis, as the faceplate is also a video display.
First you need to determine if the buttons on the faceplate are operating the various functions. If the buttons are NOT operating, then the faceplate itself (or connection to the main unit) can be considered faulty.
It's highly probable that the RIBBON cable (which connects faceplate to the inside of the unit) may be defective - this is common in some Kenwood units.
Try searching Google or youtube for ribbon cable repairs etc.
just had the same problem-it does not come with the stereo or even the DTV1 box, it only comes with the NAV1 unit. Luckily I found a local stereo shop that sold me one out of ther NAV1 box since I only bought the DTV1 box with the stereo and I needed it. So hopefully you will have teh same luck , either that or you will have to buy it directly from Power Acoustik.
With the stock radio installed, turn on your parking lights and listen for the chime (same sound for key in ignition with ignition off and door opened). Does the sound come from the front left speaker or from behind the dash? If it comes from behind the dash, disconnect factory stereo and turn lights on again, id the chime still there or does it go away? If the sound comes from the left front speaker or goes away when you unplug the factory stereo, you need a different harness, its called a chime harness Pac Audio part #C2R-GM32R, could be the thing you need.
There is a RCA cable that comes off the back of the radio and also another cable for 3.5mm (mini-stereo jack) that also comes off the back of the radio. The RCA jacks can be used for "AUX" or "Sub-woofer" and the 3.5mm jack is just for "AUX". Your ipod can use the audio output jack or the headphone jack and plug that into the 3.5 mm jack on the back of the radio. You will need a "3.5mm male" to "3.5mm male" stereo cord that can be purchased at Radio Shack or Best Buy. Then you select "AUX" on the display with the source button to listen to it. You may need to go into the menu and activate the "AUX" input. Check your owners manual for details.
