Sometimes you have to ignore the color codes and match by function, i.e., right front speaker wires on the deck to right front speaker wires on the install, etc.

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

Trying to install and rewire the kenwood KDC-MP149 cd player into my 1997 lancer. having problems matching up the wire colours thanks


I recommend you purchase a wiring harness. This will make the install much easier. You can match up the wires of the radio and the harness with ease (since all aftermarket radios have standardized color coding for the wires). You vehicle wires will never match the radio, unless it's stock. You can purchase one at www.crutchfield.com Hope this helps.

Use the Amp remote turn on wire, some units don't come with a antenna wire and as an installer we use the remote turn on instead.

How to hook up a kdc-105 kenwood in a sunfire


There are 3 things you need to purchase for this install. 1) The factory spec install kit. 2) The factory spec additional wiring harness. 3) Antenna adapter.

Find the easied way to remove the plastic cowling around the radio and ac controls. Usually you can locate screws helping to retain the plastic dash parts. Be careful not to break the plastic dash by taking your time and looking over and over the part ofr connection hardware. Once you have located and removed all/if any screws, carefully pry out on the piece you are removing. There are often metal clips on the back of the piece that also help to retain the dash. Once that is removed, unbolt/unclip the factory stereo and slowly pull it out of the dash. Remove the factory harness from the backside of the factory stereo. DO NOT CUT THE HARNESS!! The wiring harness you have purchased is designed to plug and play into the factory harness. All you hae to do is color match the Kenwoods harness with the one you purchased. When wiring the two harnesses together use connectors **** a **** connectors, crimp connectors so forth and so on. If there is wiring you will not be using, take some electrical tape and tape the bare wire. We don't want a short. Once you are sure and have doubled checked that all the wiring is secure and matched, reverse the order of disassembly.

The plastic install kit should replace the factory radio size difference. Just remember to take the metal sleeve tha came with the kenwood and install it into the plastic install kit via the instructions provided. Slide the Aftermarket stereo into the sleeve you just installed. Then you are ready to make all the needed connections. Before you reassemble everything make sure to do a test run with your stereo. If all is well reassemble and jam on.

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Schoche.com Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

No sound after installation on a kenwood kdc 30-11


wellllll the most common cause of no sound it that there is a factory amplifier in the vehicle that is not turning on with the radio.. this is done by using the remote turn on wire from the aftermarket deck. or it could be a blown speaker that is shorting out the amp in the deck
