Question about Kenwood KDC-108

Open Question

Stereo will not work. but all lights flash.

I recently installed a Kenwood KDC-108 in my 2002 Saturn SL1. I used the wiring diagrams of both the vehicle and the stereo to identify the corresponding wire colors. I double and triple checked the wiring. Now all button lights on stereo face flash repeatedly. I am able to insert and eject a disc... buts that's all. I have pressed the reset button behind the face plate to no avail. Any advice would be awesome!

SOURCE: Kenwood KX-W6080 dual stereo cassette tape deck

I have the same unit which had the same problem. It has to do with dirty contacts on each tape mechanism.

Remove the main cover and look down on each tape mechanism. You will see 4 contacts on each unit. These come in contact with the tape. Remove each unit by removing 4 holding screws.

You will now be able to spray some contact cleaner into the front of the plastic contact cover. I removed the covers on both of the second from the right contacts so that I could clean them with an abrasive. These are the main ones.

Put everything back the way it was and the tape deck should work great.

SOURCE: speakers not working

are their speakers in the rear as well. does your car have a total of 6 speakers? if so, the new deck can only run 4 of them, thats why the middle speakers dont work.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
