Question about Kenwood KDC-MP438U Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP438U I installed all the wires right, power is to the deck because it accepts a cd. the deck face doesn't light up. I called in at Kenwood and they had me test it directly to the battery- worked fine. I have a 94 toyota truck. I believe not enough power is getting to the deck any suggestions.

    My problem is the same and I tried the suggestion for this and it still does no work. I have all the wiring correct and the cd player works but nohting else.

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!

Kenwood KDC-319 CD Player Logo Problem with KDC-319 CD Player installed a kenwood kdc 319 in a 04 chevy malibu when i have car off i turn deck on an my cars dash board lights turn on Posted by A


I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.

On my kenwood kdc mp438u i tried everything it said to do but it keep saying protect


Could be a short circuit on your speaker output, try disconnecting all 4 speaker wires and then power up. Otherwise its the audio amplifier circuit that needs to be replaced ( audio IC )

Kenwood KDC-MP438U acts as if there is no power to it,dead nothin


The speaker wires are very sensitive. You need to make sure that they are not grounding out. Once the unit senses this it will shut off. Pull the plug out of the back and start over.
