How do i find if my KDC-1011s will fit my 1997 Ford Escort?


all you need to do is measure width height and depth of the unit and the space it goes into. you can check www.crutchfield.com for available space for the unit in your car. you might also bee able to do a search on the kdc-1011s to see if they sell it and if it would fit your car.

Stuck in protect mode. reset not fixing it


look for crosses/shorted speaker wires, particyularly, look for loose strands at the ends of the speaker cables to ensure that they are not crossed and shorting the amp out.

if the cables are fine, then check the speakers to see if they are blown. you should be able to gently push the cone of the woofer(s) (the biggest, bass speakers) in gently with your hand for about an inch, with no resistance, before it bottoms out. if there is any resistance while the cone is moving downward, like a scratching or a rubbing inside the speaker, then your vioce coils are fried, causing a short circuit and throwing off the "protect" light.

to test the tweeters (smaller, high frequency speakers) for damage to the voice coils, disconnect them completely from the rest of the speaker, and see if that doesnt cause "protect" to go off. you can also push in on tweeters, but they wont "give" as much as woofers, making it hard to tell if there is any resistance going on inside.

if the problem is not with the speaker wiring or the speakers themselves, then the amp is broken.

My Clarion AM/FM,CDMP3,marine radio will play when...


    I had the same issue with a blown speaker that was shorting it
    self out. I found this on "TeamClarion.com" site.

    Step 1: Disconnect all the speakers from the head unit and try again. If the same message comes up, send the unit in for service.
    Step 2: If the message goes away, you have a wiring problem. Check each speaker lead for a short circuit, damaged speaker or a ground to chassis.

    Basically means one set (or more) of the speaker leads are touching each other (shorting out). This can be somewhere inline to your speakers or your speakers them selves. The advise above isn't to clear. In the first step they want to rule out the speakers attached but "disonnecting all the speakers" is vague. You should disconnect at the rear of the radio. This might be difficult because the multi plug in the back has the speakers and power wires together (at least most clarions). Also if it was a good install then the outgoing speaker wires were soldered to the long run speaker wires going to the speakers.
    To truly test for radio fault verses the wiring or speakers, you have to sever the connection at the back of the radio. If this is not something you wish to do then there is one suggestion. Order a new multi plug for the back of the radio. This way you can pull the old plug and test it with a new plug with no speakers attached (just have to run 12v positive and negative).
    If the radio is OK then start by checking all the wires to your speakers (if possible). If nothing seems bare and shorting (remember it's usually in tight places or were the wires are hanging loose that vibration will cause cutting to the wire) then disconnect all your speakers (at the rear of the speakers). Turn the radio back on and see if it does the error message again. If not reattach the speakers one by one checking for the error message.
    You can check these in any order. If you don’t want to order a new plug then you and can’t get to much of the wiring to physically check then starting at the speakers is OK.

I was given a Kenwood KDC-1011S. All wires labled


Yellow is for constant 12v. (Power directly from battery) so it maintains preset stations and clock memory. Red is for Key "on" 12v Power (turns on when ignition key is on) Black is for Chasis Ground. What type of vehicle is it going in? I can get you the corresponding vehicle color as well. Post a comment with make/model & year vehicle. Hope this helps.

Sound problem


You have a shorted speaker or a speaker with a bad voice coil. This has been confirmed by the fact that the audio amplifier is shutting down (protection) but the unit stays powered on. The speakers will play for a few seconds or maybe even longer at lower volume, but any length or time or an increase in volume will immediateley shut off sound. This is due to the fact that a shorted speaker wire/connection will ground out or short to one another. If you have checked all connections behind the radio AND at the speakers and found no problems, then it is a voice coil on the speaker. A shorted voice coil will work until the speaker cone moves causing the short or until enough power passes through the voice coil's short to turn off the radio.
Solution:
1. You can use a voltmeter set to check continuity to test for a speaker short. Disconnect all speakers from the radio and connect one side of your meter to ground and the other to the speaker lead. An audible "beep" will confirm a short.
2. The other method would be to disconnect all speakers and re-connect them one by one until the radio's sound output shuts off again. This will be your shorted speaker.
I hope this information was helpful.
