Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a Mustang GT convertible with the Shaker 1000 system. I'm installing a Kenwood DNX8120. There are 3 plugs in the back of the factory radio. I only have 2 plugs that will match the factory plugs. one plug has nineteen wires and the other plug has 2-blue/white wires and 2-audio/video jacks. I have 3 wires left over on the wiring harness that plugs into the cars factory wiring harness. 1-blue wire not marked, 1-orange/black wire marked dimmer, and 1-pink wire marked phone. I have two wires left over the on 16 wire harness that plugs into the DNX8120. 1-blue/white wire marked power control and 1-pink/black wire marked external amplifier control. There is a plug marked relay 1 and relay 2, (garage door, lighting ect.). How does that work with a garage door? I think those are my only issues. Thanks, Bill

A savvy installer can make a circuit using your garage remote (installed in the dash) or some wireless lights (with remote) and with the push of a button, your (insert item here) will function.
Depending on the voltage required, one is really just a ground, and the other is a positive trigger.

It requires a SPDT relay, and if the remote is not 12V, a resistor of the right value to lower the voltage.

How do i hook my pioneer radio in place of a shaker 500


You should be able to buy a adapter for the OEM plug in the vehicle player unit to the player unit of your choice.
That is if a butcher has not already been to work on the OEM wiring. Then that is a whole different story.

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.

As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).

So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.

And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !


Hope this helps..

Cheers,

Scott

@novo07 mustang v6 shaker 500 radio 6cd changer, complete battery dead. after jump, radio wont come on at all. dead. Bought new battery, still no radio at all. all else works, fuses are good in kickpanel...


you may have blown an internal fuse on the radio. sometimes radios have an inline fuse on the red wire, located behind the radio. You must remove it to discover this problem though.

I am looking for the diagram # for the stereo system in the fuse box of a 2006 mustang gt


Not sure if the Radio is even turning on or what kind you have as there are a couple. Heres the info I can give you though. The radio (start) fuse is in the number 20 position (20 amp) in the fuse box inside the car located on the passenger lower side behind the kick panel. Remove the trim panel and the fuse cover to access the fuses. A diagram for that fuse is below. In power distribution box located in the engine compartment are 3 other fuses depending on which radio you have. in the number 6 & 7 position are the fuses for the rear amps on the shaker 1000 radio and in the number 16 position is for the front amp if you have the shaker 500 radio. All those fuses are 30 amps. See the diagram for that fuse box below as well.clifford224_57.jpgclifford224_58.jpg

Where are the radio fuses for my 2006 for mustang gt...even since the car was new the shaker 500 has had issues...the cds get jammed and the cd player says error and wont eject the cd


There could be two fuses that service the radio; one identified as 'Accessories' in the main fuse box and possibly a second in-line fuse inserted in the 12V line and under the dashboard.

I'm tryin to change my rear speakers in a 2005


Hi.i cant help you with the rear dash but the speakers are my expertise. They are 6x8 in the front and back without the shaker 500 or 1000 system. If you have the shaker 500 or 1000 it will still be 6x8.

Whining problem on a 95 mustang gt convertible


This is a pretty common problem, and its from the alternator.....you can install an in-line noise filter (available at radio shack or anywhere sound systems are installed).... just follow the instructions on the package....the installation is painless also check your grounds make sure they are secure, and make sure if you have and power lines running to any amps they are not inter twined with any speaker wires.
