My kenwood amp wont push my 10" rockford falsgate punch sun

I got it all intalled and it worked fine then a week or 2 later i turned my radio on and it didnt work. i have power to the amp and good channels. Everything is fine it just wont push it. But when i hook my two 6"s to the amp it pushs them untill i turn it up about a quater of a way then it will kick off untill u turn it back down. I evened tried changing subs, rewiring all the wires in and out of the box, and put it on another cheannel. It just cant push it anymore. Could it be a bad conection on the ground or pire wire? If not do you know exzactly what it is?

Just bought the used car and radio was working. Came with a Kenwood KDC-148 stereo. 2 days later, radio just was dead. Have checked fuses, wires and everything looks good. Everything else electrical...

Check the power from the harness. The yellow wire which is usually for constant 12v power and the red wire which should only have power when the key is turned on. check those wires and if you have power on both then the radio is fried. Try pushing the pins in the back of the radio harness in and see if maybe there is a loose pin, other than that, like i said , the radio may be bad.

Kenwood kdc-mp442u protect mode came

First of all , your Kenwood shows only Protect on the display when your speakerwires are conflicting with each other , but when you cannot find the problem there....

disconnect them one by one to see wich speaker in your car is conflicting (shortcuts).

Replace that speaker and your kenwood will work just fine.

I had the same problem here with a brand new Clarion speaker .

Wont turn on

first ck your fuse panel either from 15 to 25 amp bottom of your left leg if the driving position of left side or European on right side,than you might also have to ck that hot wire constint at the back of a radio"IF "the fuse is not the problem,and power wire when Ignition is turn will need a test light and a volt meters.but do not used a meter to ck. for AMP unless you have a best volt meter could handle with 25 amps and all your radio connt. wire if its loose wires or radio tips contact with wire connt.,,ck for grown and negative connt. also...some model of a radio aftermarket have a fuse at the back of the radio also,you will need to ck that with test light is it OK or not,if all seem to work fine than Sorry is RADIO need to replace....REMEMBER any radio is over 1db will cause your hearing problem in the future remember thats when you turn on too much of a WATTS

Kenwwod DPX303 dead, Worked yesterday and today wont power on. Fuses are all OK . Hit the reset button no change. Any Ideas? Rgds R

There may be multiple fuse boxs in your car, you need to make sure to check all of them listed in your owners manual. Checking involves a voltmeter and not just checking the 2 fuses you think supply power to the radio, there may be multiple fuses that supply the necessary power to the radio. Yellow and red at Kenwood need to see 12 volt positive with the key on and the black needs to have ground in order to turn on. If all three have correct voltage then pull the harness from kenwood and check small 10 (red) or 15 (blue) fuse held in and protected by the harness. Good luck!

Truck keeps going dead

250 mA drain isn't enough to be a short most likely is the capacitors continuously charging.

One way to confirm this is to put an ammeter (with a fuse inline) in series with your main power feed to your stereo power supply. By adding or disconnecting individual components, you can quickly determine where your power drain is coming from.

My radio was working until my ipod was pluged in and some buttons were pushed and now the radio will not work. we check all the wires and antenna conections and the are all pluged in. my radio is a Kenwood...

Yes, I'll say you pushed some buttons.. By reading your scant descritption of your problem i would guess that
1. You do not have an amplifier driving the speakers, and using the deck to power the speakers?
2. If this is so, in your button pushing bliss you turned off the built-in amplifer. See the deck thinks you have a amplifier running the speakers so to conserve power you can choose to turn off or on the built in amplifer. I see that frequently at my shop but you must of been playing those buttons like a piano because it is like 3 subsets back from the main menu... But enough lets get you back to good shall we?? OK here is all you do..
1. Get the unit in "Stand-by" mode
2. Than choose Menu .
3. Scroll all the way down until you find "AMP"
4. Using the side to side knob choose "ON" because you set it to "OFF" .
5. Get out of Stand-by and turn on the radio and enjoy. I will say that damn deck has more settings and options than the Space Station. Time delay, crossovers up the gazoo, every audio do-dad imaginable. Which you have just found. Good for you... Mark @ Sounds Good to Me . Tempe, AZ

My kenwood kdc-mp235

I assume the amp is turning on (lighting up) No audio may be due to Burnt rca ground trace in your kenwood radio. If you have a ohm meter measure continuity from rca's ground terminal to radio chassis. Should be close to zero resistance. If there is no no continuity there are fusible traces on radios main board that burn open at times when to much current is flowing thru rca ground
Just a good possibility , haver seen this happedmany times.
If you need service manual let me know
